Mom’s Obituary


July 10, 1910 – January 12, 1992


On January 12, 1992, Amelia K. (Lenk) Sobota entered into eternal rest after an eight-year battle with a Parkinson’s like disease called Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP). Although she actually lived with the diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, only after her death and through the donation of her brain to the Gift of Hope Program, did the family discover she didn’t have Parkinson’s disease, she had PSP.

Born in Staples, Minnesota to James and Barbara (Kveton) Lenk, on July 10, 1910, Em, as the family knew her, married the love of her life, Theodore A Sobota on June 12, 1934, and together they moved to their dairy farm in Browerville, Minnesota, a wedding present from their parents. She was the mother of ten children, James, Ann Marie, Barbara, Theodore J., Carolyn, Mary, Joannie, Margaret, Michael & Patrick; She leaves 34 grandchildren, three greatgrandchildren; She also leaves four of her ten siblings, Peter, Louis, Francis Motl, and Mary Brockhouse.

After the children were pretty well raised, Em took a job with Hart Press, a book publishing company in Long Prairie, where she was a proofreader. In 1969 they sold their Browerville farm and moved to St. Paul, Minnesota.
