Farell, Dora Haydee (nee Poussin Crottogini)

September 27, 1934 – November 25, 2016
Age 82 of Arden Hills. Dora died peacefully at her home in Arden Hills, MN, surrounded by her family on Nov. 25, 2016. Dora is survived by her husband of 58 years, Cesar; three children, Virginia, Gustavo, Paula; six loving grandkids; countless Uruguayan and French relatives and a lifetime of close friends. “Lita” (short for abuelita which is Spanish for grandmother) was born on Sept. 27, 1934 in Madrid, Spain. In 1938 the family returned to Uruguay. In 1978 the family moved to Mpls, MN, where Lita began her 15 year career as a Spanish teacher at Harding High School – a profession that she avidly loved. Lita was described as kind, selfless, caring, full of life and a great cook and will be dearly missed. She has left behind countless memories which will be forever cherished. An open house will be held in her honor on Saturday, Dec. 10th, from 2-4 pm, at the home of her daughter Virginia. Condolences may be sent to the Farell family at P.O. Box 16467, St. Paul, MN 55116.
