My Zion Story: My grandmother
Esther Backe was one of Zion's first members which led my parents Randy &
Carol Backe to Zion. My dad was baptized, confirmed and married at Zion and I
followed in his footsteps. My husband Sean and I returned to Zion in 1999 after
moving back to Cloquet after 10 years in the Twin Cities. Sandy Raisanen was
one of my favorite Sunday School teachers and she and her husband Willy have been
wonderful mentors to our children Brady (age 21), Sydney (age 20) and Keagan
What I can bring to Zion: I look forward to serving on council and
helping with the important decisions that will help our congregation continue
to grow. I will bring my organizational skills, open mind and desire to make
things better to council meetings.
Career: I am a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Care and
Education Specialist. I have worked at Fond du Lac Human Services Division for
20 years and coordinate the Diabetes Program.
Hobbies/Interests: I enjoy scrapbooking our family memories,
traveling, playing cards, reading and searching for heart
rocks, agates and sea shells.
Quirky facts: I clean my hotel room before checking out and have an extremely
poor sense of direction.
