From family history notes written by mother, Lillian Dynan:
"Ruth Catherine Dynan born Jan. 28, 1938 at St. Cloud Hospital. Had a bad case of paralytic polio near the end of the polio epidemic in 1946, coming down with also a case of bulbar polio while in St. Cloud Hospital. After ten days was sent to Gillette Hospital for Crippled Children in October, 1946. Stayed there until July, 1947, when she came home and made repeated regular trips back to Gillette until she reached age 21, and three surgeries to improve herself as she was left without the use of her left side, or use of her arms. By wearing a brace for a couple of years, she was able to get around quite well. She quit wearing a brace until she broke her leg from a fall on the steps [actually on a tiled hall floor] at St. Joseph Home in Mpls (Minneapolis) in 1964 and since has worn the full leg brace."

Notes for Timothy Brien Dynan:|
Tim graduated in 1967 with a degree in drafting from Dunwoody Institute, Minneapolis, Minnesota. He then worked for Innglebritten Silo Mfg. Co. until he was drafted into the army in September, 1968.
Initially drafted, Tim changed his status to enlisted which was three years in the service instead of two. This qualified him for additional training based upon his achievement in completing the Army Aptitude Tests, his high school education and high moral character. He was sent to Ft. Knox Engineer phases of schooling after Basic in Ft. Belvoir, VA and then was sent to Grafenvohr, Germany.
Tim's military assignment was in Germany. On May 15, 1971, at 6:30pm, two months before his discharge scheduled for August, 1971, Tim was accidently killed from a fall of heavy equipment:
"Tim and four other members of A Battery were using a military truck to move a high pressure water tank to the opposite end of the Air Defense Tactical site. Tim was riding in the back of the truck with the water tank. While rounding a curve, the load shifted causing the truck to over turn. The officer in charge of the site immediately notified a medical evacuation helicopter, which arrived within fifteen minutes. Efforts were made by members of the Battery to administer mouth to mouth resuscitation. The doctor declared the time of death was 6:40pm, saying death was almost instantaneous as a result of internal bleeding."
The accident crushed his chest and bursted his aorta. His head was so damaged that he had to have a closed casket funeral.
Lillian said that losing a child was worse than losing a spouse. She received letters from Tim's friends and his commanding officer on how highly he was regarded.
