Age 84 of Roseville, much beloved husband, father, grandfather, friend, and colleague, died on July 9, 2019, after battling a brain tumor. Byron, known to friends and family affectionately as Barney, was a lawyer for the Great Northern and then Burlington Northern railroads. He left to become VP and general counsel of the Soo Line Railroad, where he was responsible for their landmark acquisition of the Milwaukee Road, winning out over a much higher bid and saving countless jobs. He ultimately retired from the Felhaber Law Firm and was free to fully indulge his lifelong passions for automobiles, streetcars and trains. He collected dozens of cars over the years and was invited to the 2013 Pebble Beach Tour d'Elegance with his all-original 1935 Lincoln V12, his crowning achievement as a car collector. He was widely respected for his exceptional knowledge of all things automotive and assembled an exhaustive collection of automobile literature. Author of several books on cars and trains, his writing was suffused with his own unique wit and enthusiasm. He wrote articles for several different automotive and train publications and had a regular column in "Old Cars" magazine. Barney was an avid cyclist into his 80s and he enjoyed traveling, especially to Tuscany and to the family cabin in Colorado. He was a terrific host to many many friends - always ready with a well-made martini. Everyone loved Barney and he will be terribly missed by all who knew him. He is survived by his wife of 63 years Alis, daughter Carla (Ken) Larsen, son Peter, granddaughters Sieren (John) Borchert and Kira Petersen, and brother Glen (Martha) Olsen. We are forever grateful to the loving, caring staff at St.Therese at St. Odilia Hospice, who took wonderful care of Barney and family and helped make our last months together especially meaningful.

His family and friends, spread across generations and the country, are missing their brother/son/uncle/ cousin/teacher/friend/confidant. If you have a dog and crossed paths with Darwin, he was likely very excited to meet you and even more excited to meet your furry friend. If you saw or purchased a birdhouse from one of the many garden shops in the metro, it may have been made by Darwin. If you were standing at a sign reading about the historical significance of a tree stump, he was probably reading it next to you. A service to celebrate Darwin's 68 years of life will be held at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum on Monday, July 1st from 2-5 PM. Let the people at the gate know that you are there to celebrate Darwin. Guests are welcome to enjoy the gardens 8 AM - 8 PM.

Like many others raised in northern Minnesota, he developed a love for the outdoors at a very young age. This love was surpassed only by his love for God and for people, a love which was reflected in his way of life until the day of his death. Mark dedicated countless thousands of hours to a volunteer ministry, in which he helped many others to come to know the Creator and His promises for the future as recorded in the Bible. His dedication to this work and to his family took precedence over all of his secular activities, although he was also known to be a hard worker who provided generously for his wife, five children and their aging parents during their later years. Mark will be sorely missed by all those who knew him. His close friends and family share the same confidence that Mark had - that he will be remembered by his Creator, who promised another faithful servant of ancient times, “You will rest, but you will stand up for your lot at the end of the days.”

"Stu" was survived by his children and grandchildren who he loved dearly and regarded as his life's greatest accomplishments: Mac (Denise, Amy and Delaney), Heidi (Todd, Sam and Claire), Dan (Liz, Beckett, Finnegan and Eli), P.J. (Leah, Katie, Mackenzie, Kayla and Kellie) and Molly (Jeff, Hannah, Carly and George).

He was also preceded in death by a sister Kathy. Dad was a proud Army veteran and recently sent us all a text telling us he had bought combat boots and wanted to re-enlist to do something, even at 78 years-old, to defend our country. He was dead serious. Dad was a fighter. He never quit. He outlived every timeline given to him in his fight against cancer. Dad spent his retirement years being the biggest fan of the Johnnies, Bennies, Lindenwood Lions, Royals, Pioneers, swimming, gymnastics, football, hockey, baseball, basketball, volley ball, guitar and Ashland Productions or any other sport or team or activity that involved his grandkids. He also loved and cherished his four legged companions Benji, Dolli and Joey. We spent our last days with dad sharing memories, laughing and shedding a lot of tears. The journey has been bittersweet. We lost our dad. But we have cherished our time together and have learned – we can take it from here. Dad, we know you will be watching and we will continue to make you proud. We love you. Thank you Dr. Downs and the VA Oncology staff and the VA Palliative Care team for the wonderful care you provided during his long and hard battle. We are so very grateful to the staff and volunteers at Our Lady of Peace Hospice Home who provided amazing care, compassion and support to all of us during his final and difficult days.

Age 66 of Billings, MT.  Born in St. Paul, MN, the sixth of seven siblings. As a seventeen year old, Paul enlisted in the Navy to serve in WWII. He was sent to the Pacific theatre, where he served as a telegrapher. Because he did not see actual combat, he always downplayed his military service, though while overseas he contracted tuberculosis for which they had to cut out a chunk of his lung and he spent over a year in the hospital. After the war, Paul returned to Minnesota where he earned a Bachelors Degree in Forestry from the University of Minnesota. As a forester he worked at several locations throughout the US. Eventually, Paul settled in his beloved Billings, MT where he lived for over 55 years. For over 30 years he worked as the Area Forester in the Rocky Mountain Regional district, for the Bureau of Indian Affairs in Montana. After he retired, he would periodically take road trips to check up on the forests he had managed during his career. Paul had many interests and was a voracious reader, who read widely in history and economics with an occasional spy novel thrown in. Paul was a self taught stock evaluator and investor. He shared this passion with several investment clubs including the one at the Billings Senior Center, where he frequently tried to increase his holdings at the poker table as well. An avid golfer, he was a fifty year member of the Laurel Golf Club, where he served on the board of directors. He played golf into his 90s, walking the front 9 and taking a cart on the back 9, playing what he described as "terrible golf". He was a league bowler for decades, and even bowled a game over 200 last fall! When there was enough snow, he would head to the mountains and ski. He enjoyed skiing and frequently took advantage of the free skiing offered to those over 80 at Bridger Bowl in Bozeman, MT He is survived by his daughter Tina, son-in-law Jeff, grandson Eric, great grandson Tommy and several nieces and nephews. Preceded in death by siblings Harriet, Ralph, Mary, Margaret, Dorothy, Louise. A memorial service and ceremonial tree planting will take place in Minneapolis, Minnesota with details to be announced later. Memorials to The Nature Conservancy or Laurel Golf Course youth programs.

Stacke, Paul Dixon

Age 84 of Jordan. St. Cloud, passed away peacefully at the age of 84. He is now home in Heaven with his wife, parents and siblings. Paul was born on February 9th, 1935 in Minneapolis, MN. He married Carol Stacke on June 10, 1959, and they had three daughters: Caroline, Paula and Rachel. Paul began his broadcasting career in 1955. During that time, he worked at radio stations throughout Minnesota, including Albany, Morris, Duluth, and St. Cloud, where he was a member of the award-winning news staff of AM 1240 WJON for 38 years.
Paul's most notable contribution was as WJON's political reporter. Paul brought the latest to his listeners by covering the senators, governors, and state and local leaders in Minnesota politics and asking them the tough questions people wanted answered. Everyone who knows Paul has been touched by the man who left his mark on the world as a husband, father, grandfather, friend, mentor and prolific journalist. We honor a great man who was blessed with a quick wit, a huge heart, an epic laugh, and a razor-sharp mind. A man's life is defined, to great extent, by his values and his passions. Paul lived his life to the fullest and was loved by many - a testament to the values and passions that guided him. Come celebrate his life and share stories and memories on Sunday July 7th, 2019 at Wilson Park Pavilion 625 Riverside Dr NE, St Cloud, MN 56304 from 2pm-4pm.

She and Larry shared four children, Tom and Tim Berube, Laura Berube, and Richard Voelbel, six grandchildren & twelve great grandchildren. Joan always said she couldn't believe that she got to be a great grandmother! Joan had an interesting life, beginning on the East Coast near Philadelphia and then New Jersey. At one point she and her sister and brothers and her young son decided to move west looking for a new start. They ended up in the wild wild west of Colorado and greatly enjoyed the outdoor life and the beautiful Rockies. It became her home in her heart. She met her dear Larry Berube in Boulder and they had a long life together moving to Minnesota and then to Utah and finally back to Colorado where they retired. Larry worked hard at teaching her golf and bridgethe bridge worked really well, but the golf - not so much. In her last years she decided to move back to Minnesota to be with the Minnesota contingent of the family. She lived at Jones Harrison Residence and was well known as the champion (pure luck?) of the weekly Bingo game! Truth be told, she also enjoyed the occasional trip to the casino to play the slots. She was very active at JHR, taking part in the many activities, exercise classes, and worship services - both the non-denominational and the Roman Catholic, but the Roman Catholic faith was always central to her life. Just days before she passed, she was intentional about thanking her many caregivers for the kindness and good care she had received. She was known as Nana to grandchildren and great grandchildren who got quite a kick out of celebrating her birthday on Christmas Day. Services will be at Jones Harrison Residence at 3700 Cedar Lake Ave., Minneapolis 55416, to be held at 10:30 AM, Thursday, June 13. In lieu of flowers, memorials appreciated to Jones Harrison Residence. (Published in the Star Tribune June 2, 2019)

Larson, Lynda Gae (nee Ebert)
September 15, 1947 - May 16, 2019
Age 71 of Ramsey. Can a smile be infectious? Lynda's smile was a confirmation of unconditional love to her husband Roger as they cruised the open road or open water on one of their many journeys; a comfort to her father as he returned home from loading the ore carriers in the port of Two Harbors; a gentle challenge to her mother and three sisters to catch me if you can; a safe harbor of encouragement and wonder to her son Trent, daughter Tanya, and their families; a beacon for adventurous stories to her four grandchildren; Trevor, Drew, Jack and Lauryn; an invitation for fun to her friends and colleagues from the North Shore to the Twin Cities, California to South Carolina and all points in between Lynda touched millions of lives with her gracious, giving way. She had a passion for music and oil painting, crocheting, baking, card-playing and simply being a friend. After a courageous two-year battle of melanoma cancer, Lynda passed peacefully at home on May 16, 2019, 71-years young, surrounded by family and friends.

Her funeral service will be held Saturday May 11th at 11 am with a visitation one hour prior. Sharon was born on October 19, 1941 in Shakopee, Minnesota.  She met the love of her life, Edwin Niemela, when she was just 17 years old.  They got married in December of 1959. They started their family living in Minneapolis, Coon Rapids, Isanti, and finally in Harris.   They had 5 children; Tim, Ron, Jeanna, Renee, and Shari. Sharon worked as a mother first, but had various jobs through the years, including Foley Manufacturing Co, and County Market grocery bakery.  She loved being home and loved being out making friends in the working world. Sharon and Ed started going south in the winters to Mesa, Arizona.  They loved the warm weather and gained many friends in their travels. they continued to go there for over 20 years and enjoyed their time. In 2017 Sharon convinced Ed to take her to the ocean.  They enjoyed several months at Orange Beach, Alabama. While they were there they watched the ocean and enjoyed the sunshine. Sharon had many interests and hobbies.  She loved to bake and enjoyed doing that with her daughters and granddaughters especially for holidays.  She made several embroidered hand towels for herself, family and friends She also enjoyed crocheting blankets. But her favorite pastime had to be playing cards. Years ago they would host poker parties with the neighborhood. In more recent years she enjoyed playing “Pepper” and “Pinnacle”  with friends and family. She loved teaching her granddaughters new games and made sure they knew that future husbands should also know how to play cards. One of Sharon’s life desires was to live on a lake.  In 2000 she and Ed built a beautiful home on Horseshoe Lake in Harris. She was always so happy to share her home with family. She loved to have everyone over, have a BBQ and sit back and watch everyone enjoy being together.  Even though it was always crazy and chaotic she loved every minute. In more recent years family became extremely important as loss, after loss took loved ones.  She learned to say “I love you”, she learned to accept Jesus, she learned that the people in her life were the most important thing. In the last weeks of Sharon’s life she made it a priority to let each one of her family know what they meant to her.   She made sure to tell everyone to take care of her husband. She cried and fought hard to stay here with us as she said her goodbyes. She said I love you over and over in her last hours before leaving for her next journey.

Carlson, Edward Jerome
May 25, 1943 - April 10, 2019
Age 75 of Plymouth. Jerome Carlson passed away peacefully of natural causes on April 10th, 2019 surrounded by his loving family. His life was full of joy, work, adventure and generosity. Jerome will be missed terribly by his large, blended family and dear friends, who strive to pass on his love and legacy. Jerome was predeceased by his father and mother, John and Myrtle Carlson; daughter, Lucy; brothers, Donald, Lary, and Bill. He is survived by his wife, Linda; children Kjersti Francis (Tim), Juliana Teske (Aaron), Jed (Kerry), Siri Kristenson (David), Dr. Mary Bianco (Dr. Joe), Ed Ulmaniec (Tara), and Chris Swenning (Terry); brothers, Oscar (Val), Martin (Peg), and Fred (Marti); and thirteen grandchildren. On May 25, 1943, Jerome Carlson was born in the farmhouse of John and Myrtle Carlson. He was raised on the farm to age 18. He first attended Hamilton country school and then attended town school graduating in 1961. He was co-captain of the football and baseball teams, served on the Student Council from 5th grade through senior high year, and sang solos in the high school choir. For 15 months following graduation, he worked on construction to earn money for college tuition. In 1962-1963 Jerome attended the University of Minnesota. In the fall of 1963, Jerome transferred to MacPhail College of Music majoring in Voice. He continued at MacPhail for three years and served as the Student Body President during the 1965-1966 school year. While at MacPhail, Jerome also sang professionally with the Lamplighters Sextet and with the popular Edgewater Eight. In 1967, he moved to Chicago, IL continuing with voice lessons and performing. In 1968, Jerome married Julie Diercks from Mound, MN (they later divorced). They had 5 children together, Kjersti, Juliana, Jed, Lucy, and Siri. In 1968 he also co-founded The Instant Web Company. The company grew and in 1976 moved to a larger facility in Chanhassen, MN. In 1979, Instant Web purchased United Mailing, a small mailing company. That same year, Jerome purchased a 40 acre farm from Mr. and Mrs. Schmieg, which became part of an industrial park on the west edge of Chanhassen. In 1981, Instant Web purchased Victory Envelope and in 1982 Instant Web moved into a new facility in the industrial park in Chanhassen. In 1983, United Mailing Company joined Instant Web on the campus. In 1986, Victory Envelope completed the campus by moving into the 3rd facility. The single source, total package option of eliminating freight for the companies' clients paid off. The growth continued and when Jerome retired in 1998 after 30 years, the Instant Web Companies employed 1,000 Minnesotans. Later, in 2003, he and his partners would sell the companies. In 1984, Jerome would meet and later marry Linda Carroll who brought three children to the blended marriage, Mary, Ed, and Chris. In 1987, Jerome and Linda built New Beginnings, a day care center next door to the companies so that employees could have lunch with their children or be available when needed. In 1999, Jerome built Brendon Pond, a group home for his Downs daughter, Lucy, and three other women. Jerome sang at dozens of weddings, at Orchestra Hall, and at the Carlton Celebrity Theater as a fundraiser for Groves Academy. He sang for Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush, Governor Rudy Perpich, General Colin Powell, and at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Writing lyrics and creating melodies was another one of Jerome's passions. This culminated in the production and staging of the musical "Gin" at the Music Box Theater in Minneapolis in 1994. "Spirit of Christmas", a Holiday song he wrote and recorded, earned him a Gold Record. He also recorded one of his songs in Nashville with Chet Atkins. Jerome was a generous contributor to Mora Dollars for Scholars Program, the Mora Education Foundation, VocalEssence, the Paradise Community Theater, the Kanabec County History Center, and Mount Olivet Rolling Acres (the service provider for daughter Lucy's group home). He served on various boards including MacPhail School of Music, Groves Learning Center, and The Printing Industry of Minnesota. Jerome was honored by his home town of Mora, MN as their Grand Marshal in 1987. In 1989, he was named Citizen of the Year in Chanhassen, MN and in 1999 was the Grand Marshal in Chanhassen's annual 4th of July Parade. Jerome enjoyed hunting, fishing and camping in North America, especially in Alaska with his family. Jerome was a bow hunter and quite proud of harvesting a few trophy bucks, a huge black bear, and a classic 6 x 6 bull elk. He traveled to Sweden, England, Germany, France, and Italy. He trekked up the Solukhumbu Trail in Nepal to near the base camp at Mount Everest. He traveled to Japan, Philippines, Hong Kong, and China. He trekked to the summit of Kilimanjaro after camping in the Serengeti. When asked about his spirituality, he said, "It was anchored in the worship of God in nature; always humbling and giving him comfort." In 2013 he traveled to Antarctica as his brother Martin's guest. It was an extraordinary experience sailing on the Lindblad/National Geographic ship from Argentina to Antarctica. When they reached Antarctica they stopped several times to hike and to visit with some researchers there at the time. Seeing and watching the orcas, hump backed whales, sea birds, penguins, seals, and icebergs was an experience! A memorial service will be held for Jerome on Sunday, April 28th at 11:00 AM at The Grand Event Center, 2025 Rowland Road, Mora MN 55051. Memorials appreciated to either of these charities that Jerome supported: Mora Dollars for Scholars at PO Box 422, Mora 55051, or in support of the Uveal Melanoma Program at the Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center at Jefferson Health in Philadelphia.

After a career with the US Department of Customs as an import specialist, he consulted, and then became a real estate agent. Retired in 2002, Steve was able to devote more time and attention to his passion, backgammon. Steve was a nationally ranked backgammon player and played weekly at the Twin Cities Backgammon Club. His most memorable recent accomplishment was to win the Championship, the Badgers Classic Masters, and the Doubles championship in the Wisconsin State Backgammon Tournament in 2017, a very rare trifecta. He was extremely proud of finishing ranked as number 7 in the 2018 American Backgammon Tour awards. Always young at heart, Steve was known for his kindness, generosity, good sportsmanship, and always present sense of humor. A memorial service and celebration of Steve's life will be held on March 30, at 1:30 p.m. at St. John the Evangelist Episcopal Church, 60 Kent Street, Saint Paul, MN with a reception to follow. Suggested memorials are the American Diabetes Association or Animal Humane Society in Golden Valley. We want to especially thank the excellent caregivers at Regions Hospital, St. Paul, who made Steve's last days comfortable. In addition our thanks to the wonderful care he received at the University of Minnesota Fairview Hospital and Bethesda Hospital in recent months. Lastly, we were able to enjoy three weeks at home thanks to the exceptional care provided by home caregivers from Olidia. Steve will be greatly missed, but Steve's spirit and joyfulness will live on in the hearts of all who knew him. (Published in the Star Tribune on Mar. 22, 2019).

Bauer, Jason David
January 8, 1973 - February 7, 2019
Age 46 of Minneapolis. died February 7 after a valiant battle with cancer lasting four years, eight months, and sixteen days. He passed peacefully at home with his beloved wife Amanda and faithful dog Niko at his side.Jason was born on January 8, 1973 to John and Elizabeth Bauer of Blaine. He was a quiet kid with a big imagination and a flair for art. Jason's friends remember him as a compassionate kid with a big smile, always on his bike or skateboard. He attended Jefferson Elementary, Northdale Junior High, and Blaine High School.When Jason was 18, he met his person, Amanda. The two were inseparable, and they married in 1998. They shared a unique connection and truly cherished each other's company. Although unequivocally a team, they respected and encouraged each other's individuality. Whether traveling cross-country, watching a movie, walking around Lake Nokomis, or trapped in a hospital room, they were better together.Jason earned a degree in electronics technology from Brown Institute and spent almost 18 years in Information Systems at Ziegler. He quickly gained a reputation for resolving the most difficult issues with personal computers and applications. Later, as Production Support Manager, he led a team that supported the entire company. He was known throughout the organization for his initiative, ideas and dedication.Jason loved music even as a child, but once he signed up for guitar lessons at age 15, he was on the road to a true passion. He became a prolific bassist admired by many local musicians, playing in punk, hardcore, ska, indie rock, and metal bands. Jason was a quiet man, but words like thunderous and face-melting were used to describe his bass tones. He loved playing live more than just about anything. He continued writing songs and performing even after he lost feeling in his fingertips due to chemo side effects, and like a true rock star, he played two live shows after entering hospice care. His sound, style, and presence provided the foundation for songs and stories that will live on forever.Jason was incredibly strong, as he proved many times over while fighting colorectal cancer. He survived surgeries most people have never heard of, and endured endless radiation and chemo, all of which slowly forced him to give up most of the activities he enjoyed. He was always kind to those who cared for him and maintained his sense of humor, even while in terrible pain. When standard treatments failed, Jason didn't give up. He participated in three consecutive clinical trials at Mayo Clinic. Jason knew it was unlikely these experimental drugs would cure his cancer or give him superpowers, but thanks to his unselfish participation, future generations may have a better chance at beating this awful disease.Jason loved road trips, sunsets, death metal, singletrack mountain biking, and driving too fast. He had an innate sense of style and was always dressed better than his wife. He remodeled nearly every inch of the home they shared. He was always willing to lend a hand to friends and neighbors. He enjoyed photography and had a great eye for design. He loved animals and volunteered walking dogs at the Humane Society until he was too weak to continue. He was genuine and humble and kind, and he deserved more time than he got.Jason will be missed by his wife, Amanda Allen-Bauer, his parents John and Betty Bauer, his brothers Todd & Chris and their wives Kellie & Shari, nephews Joshua and Jacob Bauer and Sidney Allen, mother-in-law Sue Allen, sister-in-law Emily Allen and countless other family members and friends. He will be deeply missed by everyone who was lucky enough to know him. He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Emil & Anita Johnson and John & Ann Bauer, and his father-in-law Randy Allen.Jason chose to celebrate his life before it ended, and he did so in November 2018 at a party so epic that over three hundred people and a woolly mammoth were in attendance. No further services will be held. (Published in the Star Tribune on Feb. 10, 2019).

Dick graduated from Waverly High School in 1948, received a BA from Wartburg College in 1952 and a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Iowa in 1961. He served for the Atomic Energy Commission. He joined the faculty of Wisconsin State College, River Falls in 1955, where he taught chemistry, physics, mathematics, and team-taught Great Ideas in Science. In 1970 he was selected by seniors and alumni as the Johnson Foundation Distinguished Professor. He served as chairman of the chemistry department and, from 1969 to 1988, as dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. He returned to teaching and retired in 1993. He instituted faculty exchanges in Europe and the Pacific Rim and brought numerous internationally recognized individuals and groups to the campus.
Dick found joy in the strength of the faculty, the positive accreditation of college programs, and the designation by the Board of Regents of the undergraduate programs in Chemistry and Physics as Centers of Excellence for the University System. 
In recognition of his many contributions to the college, the Richard D. Swensen Sundial was constructed on the River Falls campus. At the time of dedication, it was the largest, most accurate vertical face sundial in the world. 
His many community activities included member and vice president of the River Falls Board of Education, member and chair of the Board of Deacons, St. Andrews (Ames), and Ezekiel Lutheran Churches. In his youth he obtained the rank of Eagle Scout.

He consulted for numerous programs to Europe, East Europe, and the Far East. He initiated the first UWRF music tour to Europe and then to the Far East.
Dick and Grace were among 31 who were awarded the Department of State's Millennium International Volunteer Award in 2000 for their contributions to international educational and cultural exchange and enhancing the cause of global understanding. The award was part of an official program of the White House Millennium Council. 
With all his accomplishments he was most proud of his family, and he and Grace gathered them often. Dick and Grace and their six children travelled the world together and found comfort in time spent with each other. His love for photography, travel, music, bringing people together, good food, science, and most of all family lives on in and enriches his family.

John could seemingly build and fix anything and was always ready to explain engines and machines, usually with his mechanical pencil hovering over a drawing or diagram. He loved to socialize and regularly checked in with neighbors, breakfast buddies, friends, and family. A sentimental guy, he often teared up over good memories, hymns, stories, or moments of human kindness. A sincere thank you to Colonial Acres and Good Samaritan Ambassador care centers for compassionate care during some difficult months for John. A memorial service will be held Wednesday, January 2, 11 a.m. at Normandale Lutheran Church, 6100 Normandale Rd, Edina, visitation preceding at 10 a.m. Interment at Fairview Cemetery, Lindstrom. Memorials may be made to the Normandale Lutheran Church Organ Restoration Fund or the Norman-dale Lutheran Church Foundation. (Published in the Star Tribune on Dec. 23, 2018).

He was a United States Army veteran and worked most of his life in quality engineering.  A resident of Palmetto, FL for the past several years, he hosted many memorable family  visits to the sunshine state. He will be lovingly remembered for his generous giving, incomparable sense of humor, commitment to family, joy in being a father, and knack for always finding the fun in life.  Mark was an adventure seeker who enjoyed traveling, playing pranks, watching movies (especially family and shockingly bad sci-fi films), and coin collecting.  He was a self-proclaimed sock connoisseur, an aspiring gator hunter, and was ahead of his time as the best Daddy shark before that was ever a thing.  He was an extraordinarily fun Dad, a dependable friend, brother, and uncle, and truly found - or created - any good humor that was to be had in good times and bad.  In his own words, he "lived a great life with few regrets and a wonderful family." He was a pillar in our family and will be missed tremendously. Preceded in death by mother, Cleo Dahl and brother, Richard Heideman.

You fought your battle against an ugly cancer with a beautiful grace and remarkable courage, and showed us all what strength really looks like.  You held on as long as you could, and treated us all with love and grace along the way. It was a testamanet to how strong and how loving we all already knew you were. We hope you found the "Hawaii" you were looking for - maybe you're checking it out on your Harley, your spirit free as a bird. We love you infinitely.

She was fiercely independent, raising her children and working for RJ Reynolds Tobacco, Dayton-Hudson, Der Kel Employment, Travel Career School and operating her own business, Teddie Greene’s Travel Agents at a time when women often stayed in the home.She traveled, entertained and brought smiles to faces with her outgoing nature and outlandish sense of humor. She eventually moved to the Twin Cities and married Clifford Leacock in 1987.

Christmas was particularly special, when she would sit in her chair and tilt her head to the ceiling and laugh at the gag gifts she would receive from her daughters. At the end of the night, there would be hugs and kisses and a phone call the next day to relive it all. Teddie is preceded in death by her parents, Theodore and Anetha, sisters Anetha, Bertha, Lenore and Monica and brothers Joseph, Pete and Theodore. She is survived by husband Cliff, sister Nella children Deanna, Billie Jo (Mike Schons) and Lance (Patricia), stepchildren Anne (Tony Henseler), Theresa (Greg Tackman), Mary Bistram and Jim; grandchildren Jon, Kelly, Dustin and Colin; stepgrandchildren Heather, Justin, Samantha, Jessica, Evelyn, Luccia, Giovanni and Joshua and eight great grandchildren/stepgrandchildren.

Farley, Marie Meyers
December 17, 1929 - September 27, 2018
Age 88 of Lilydale. Died peacefully at home surrounded by family on September 27, 2018. She was born on December 17, 1929, in Chicago, Ill., to Anthony and Ruth (Rispen) Meyers. After graduating from South Shore High School, Marie went on to earn her associate's degree from William Woods College in Fulton, Mo., in 1950. That spring, she met her future husband, Harrison, and they were married on June 23, 1951. They moved to New York City, where Harrison completed medical school at Cornell University and New York Hospital, and Marie worked in the gift shop and health services until their first child was born in 1953. In 1954, the young family moved to Chicago, and their second child was born. It was there that Marie honed her skills at sculpting, painting, and crafting clothes for her family. She had a gift for art, especially creating pencil portraits, painting, and drafting, and her work was destined to cover the walls of the two homes she herself had designed. The Farleys moved to Edina, Minn., in 1957, and lived on Grove Street while Harrison completed his surgical residency, and then on Dublin Circle, in 1963, the first home Marie designed with their builder and draftsman. Harrison and Marie raised four girls and two boys: After Marie had a miscarriage, she was intent on fostering and did so for two boys; she advocated for the interracial adoption of the second boy in 1969 just as the Civil Rights Movement was ending, and he became their sixth child. Marie was a superb mother and loved her children dearly, and she was resolute in rearing children of strong character. From a young age, Marie developed an innate sense of rightness after learning about the crimes against her Jewish friend's family in Nazi-occupied Germany, and she had a desire to see everyone benefit from equal rights. She championed support for the Civil Rights Movement at her church and in her community. She was a fighter for the underdog, and worked tirelessly to get struggling families a home and education in finances, eventually founding her own nonprofit, Consumer Credit Counseling Service. In 1991, she suffered her first stroke and retired. The following year, when Harrison retired, the couple set their sights on building a custom log home that Marie designed in Cannon Falls, Minn., where they lived for 10 years. There, Marie resumed work on her art and gardening. The couple sold their home in 2004 to live in a condo in St. Paul, enjoying views of the Mississippi River for nine years. As the consummate planner, she pushed forward to secure a new home where more care and assistance would be available, and they relocated to the Villas of Lilydale senior apartments in 2013 soon after Marie began having further extension of her compromised cerebrovascular system. While Marie's death was not unexpected, she died with grace and without complaints. Her faith was not worn on her sleeve but was deep and rooted in the New Testament. She was a treasure to her family; those who knew her loved her tenacity and indomitable spirit. She was guided by integrity, beauty, ethics, and the conviction that we are all capable of creating a better world. As a devoted and influential matriarch, she will be forever imprinted on her family and friends through her legacy of strength, determination, and encouragement for us to always "rise above it." Preceded in death by her parents and sister, Dorothy Bower. Survived by her beloved husband of 67 years, Harrison Hatheway Farley, Claudia (Pedro) Diaz Pow Sang, Jeff (Carrie) Farley, Karen "Kim" (Mark) Lewis, Robin (Dean) Herbst, Ty Farley, Julie (Jim) Leahy, niece Carol-Lynn Bower, seven grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. On behalf of Harrison and the entire Farley family, we would like to express our deep gratitude for the wonderful love and care the Lilydale nursing staff gave to Marie. In respect of her wishes, immediate family will hold a private gathering in celebration of her life. (Published in the Pioneer Press on Oct. 7, 2018).

Shreve, Robert Francis
November 20, 1924 - September 25, 2018
Age 93 of Lakeville, formerly of Wayzata, passed away peacefully on September 25, 2018, with family at his side. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife Barbara, to whom he was married almost 59 years, sons Paul and Jack, his parents, sister Sarah, and brother Bill. The 3rd child of six of William Guy Shreve and Mary Byrd Shreve, "Bob" was born and raised in Falls Church, VA until his entry into the armed services during WWII, serving in Patton's 89th Division as a heavy weapons squad leader. After the war, he was graduated from Carnegie Mellon Institute as a Chemical Engineer. But Bob's interests and talents were eclectic. Bob and Barbara moved many times during their early married life; in each new home, Bob painted fabulous murals on the basement walls: Pogo, maps, Picasso's Don Quixote, the Aztec calendar, among them. He demolished walls and floors, built rooms, staircases, a welding shed, and then there was the Epoxy Era.... He enjoyed golf, tennis, cross-country skiing, and bicycling, and he and Barbara traveled widely 6 continents (declaring that after living in Minnesota for so long, a trip to Antarctica was superfluous), often in the company of dear friends Stan and Pat Cairns. After retiring to Savannah, he wrote a mystery novel ("The Wanton Wedge"), a chapbook on his war experiences ("A Small War"), hundreds of humorous poems, stories, and articles, many of them for This Week in the Landings magazine (for which he received a fan letter from Bobbie Gentry), and took up photography and computer graphics. He performed a mean Shuffle Off to Buffalo and warble of "Jealousy, You've Made a Fool of Me." He loved wine and ice cream and chocolate, socializing with friends, his family, terrible puns and limericks, was a voracious reader, a whiz at crossword puzzles and Sudoku. For many years he read for Radio for the Blind and as a youngster in his 80's, delivered Meals on Wheels. He was a gentleman, possessed great integrity and dignity -  and wore cereal boxes on his head and fluttered wrapping paper eyelashes at Christmas. Oh, how we miss him! Survived by daughter Virginia (Carey Edwin Gregory), sons Daniel (Tami) and Michael (Judy);  grandchildren Sam, Charlie, Tom, Jack, and Greta; siblings Ann, David, and James; and many nieces and nephews, including Margie Ann, Betsy, Jon, and Larry Nerenberg. A memorial service will be held at Skidaway Island United Methodist Church after the new year. In lieu of flowers, donations welcomed to Habitat for Humanity, Red Cross, Warriors and Quiet Waters, or the National Parks. (Published in the Star Tribune on Oct. 14, 2018).

A unique part of Sandy’s childhood was growing up as the daughter of a candy maker. Walter, her father, was the co-owner of Miss Morris Candies, Inc. of Minneapolis, a manufacturer of fine candies in the 1940’s. Sandy loved sampling the candies and helping package gifts that went out to their customers on Valentine’s Day. Sandy graduated from Washburn High School, Minneapolis in 1946 and went on to college, finishing her degree in Home Economics and Nutrition from Milwaukee-Downer College (now Lawrence University) in 1950.

for 66 years until Max passed away in 2017. Max’s career in the Federal Bureau of Investigation required frequent moves across the country and they did so five times until he retired in 1977. After a number of years of living in a Chicago suburb, they moved to Minocqua to enjoy the Northwoods life and remained residents for 35 years. Sandy’s interests included golf, gardening, and cooking for her family. She found great joy in having family visit and enjoy the lakes and recreation of the Minocqua area. Sandy and Max were members of the Minocqua Country Club and Calvary Lutheran Church where they made lifelong friends. Sandy was also a member of the American Association of University Women (AAUW). Sandy was preceded in death by her husband Max, their son Mark R. Fritschel, and her 2 brothers Robert and Richard Sandell. She is survived by daughter Linda (Tom) Reasoner of Lisle, IL, daughter Mary (Tim) Doerr of Minocqua, WI, and son Jamie (Colleen) Fritschel of Inver Grove Heights, MN. Also
surviving are 8 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren. The family is grateful for the loving care provided by the Memory Care Unit at the Rosemount Senior Living Campus (augustanacare.org) and Brighton Hospice Care.

As a literary scholar Kim's published work appeared in a number of academic journals, and he also collaborated widely as an editor and translator. Tom Conley, friend and colleague, remembers Kim's work for Enclitic this way: "With wit and a discerning eye that isolated pared words and images into fields of tension, he was (if I may cite Paul Valéry, a great poet and critic) a créateur par la forme." John Beckmann, friend and writer, describes Kim's artistic output in the past decades as follows: "For many years, Kim worked tirelessly to perfect written discourse that was lyrical, intellectually challenging and densely meaningful. As a prose stylist and thinker, he was the boldest of adventurers as well as a gifted designer and artist." Kim co-founded the original Loring Café in 1985. He was a superb photographer, a classical guitarist, and excelled in sports in his youth. Kim is survived by his family: Kay, Lynne, Jessica, George, Tony, Audrey, Adam, Kris, Hannah, Rosie, Sam, and Alek, as well as by many other friends and relatives. We will all miss his kind and gentle company. (Published in the Star Tribune on July 29, 2018).

We watched him as he went through all his various phases from Goth to Hippie, but he was passionate about them all. His infectious laugh will heal us as we grieve.

Age 91 of Edina, MN - Nationally prominent bandmaster, age 91, of Edina, Minnesota, and formerly of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, died July 9, 2018, in Minneapolis.

He attended a one-room schoolhouse and graduated in 1944 as valedictorian from Lane High School. He enlisted in the U.S. Army, serving as drum major and clarinetist with the 71st Army Band in Panama. In 1951 he graduated magna cum laude from Augustana College in Sioux Falls; while there, he was student body president and student band conductor. Leland married his childhood sweetheart, Ardis Scheel, June 10, 1951 in Lane. The couple lived for a year in Vienna, Austria, where Leland studied at the Academy of Music as Augustana's first Fulbright scholar.

Shea and Dorothy Lonergan, he is survived by his children, Andrew T. and Glynis C.; his sister, Margaret Zera and brother, Daniel Shea as well as a large clan of nieces, nephews and cousins. He was preceded in death by his brother, Patrick; his wife, Marilyn and Seamus, his enormous poodle. His drive and wanderlust led to a remarkable life. Although his childhood was tumultuous, he attended Cretin High School, St. Thomas College then received his law degree from George Washington University. During law school, he prepared legislative briefs at the Library of Congress. He followed in his father's footsteps by fundraising for churches, a skill he later used to help sustain Regina High School (which his daughter attended). After private practice, he joined and became a partner at O'Connor & Hannan and was a founding partner of McGrann Shea Carnival Straughn & Lamb, Chartered in 1989. He focused on corporate law, municipal utilities and defending unions and their pensions. In 2001, as general counsel for the Metropolitan Sports Facilities Commission, he led the team that successfully enforced the Twins' contract to ensure the future of Major League baseball in Minnesota. Andy was actively involved in national political affairs throughout his life: fundraising for the Humphrey-Muskie ticket in 1986, assisting the DNC Treasurer from 1969-72 and directing the 1974 Conference on Democratic Party Organization and Policy. In 1976, he was Manager of the Democratic National Convention in NYC. He loved travel and adventure. As a young man, he worked and climbed in Glacier National Park. With his family, he sailed in Lake Superior and the Aegean Sea and traveled in Ireland, England, France, Italy, and Mexico. Upon retirement, he moved to California and fulfilled a dream of living on the ocean at the Sea Ranch, where he hiked among the redwoods and along the rocky coast with his wife and poodle. Father and Shea family patriarch, Andy was generous, loving, funny and protective. His roles included defender of errant family members, girls basketball coach, ice-skating and tennis instructor, pinewood derby engineer, doll house and puppet theatre builder, subzero grill master, and ill-gotten winner of board games. He gave freely of his time, legal expertise and financial resources. Shortly after his return to MN, Andy was diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease. While his final years were heartbreaking, we are delighted that he remained unaware of 45. With his death, we know that the road is rising up to meet him, the wind is at his back and the sun is shining warmly on his face always. As a memorial to his life and work, please make a donation to the ACLU. An Irish wake in his honor will be held Kieran's [601 1st Avenue North, Minneapolis, MN 55403] on August 7th from 4-8pm.

Growing up, Daniel was in Boy Scouts Pinewood Derby and marching band, where he played the saxophone. He performed in several plays and musicals, where he sang and danced.

Daniel could light up a room and create a smile from anyone who ever heard his joyful, bellowing laugh.
