Theodore Ofstedahl was Michele Thorne’s grandfather. He passed away on July 27th, surrounded by the love of his family. The Ofstedahl family has asked that in lui of sending flowers, a donation be made to his granddaughter’s charity: Care 4 the Caregivers. Care 4 the Caregivers is a 501c3 focused on strengthening families raising children with disabilities by supporting the whole family. Michele founded this charity when both of her children were diagnosed with autism. She found herself in an unfamiliar world, navigating difficult systems of care, advocating for her children’s rights, and struggling to maintain relationships and self-care. Her charity focuses on providing caregivers easy access to resources, education, and support. Her grandfather fully supported his granddaughter and her mission when he was alive.
Thank you for making a donation in Ted’s name.
