Son after mother's brutal rape, death: 'This is beyond words'

Louise Sollowin spent 50 years helping her sister fire up the oven at Orsi's Italian Bakery, where her love of the family business kept her going well into her 80s.

Sollowin baked and cleaned, chatting almost exclusively in Italian with her sister, Frances Orsi, whose husband, Claudio, ran the bakery for decades. Sollowin's husband, Joe, did the books.

“I grew up there,” Joe Sollowin III, Louise's son, said Thursday. “Family's family. You helped out no matter what.”

Sollowin's relatives were reeling Thursday at Louise's death. The 93-year-old woman was sexually assaulted and pummeled Sunday in her bed by an intruder, according to Omaha police.

She died Wednesday at the Nebraska Medica
