Mary Byrne Matejcek, one of our grandest Irish ladies who grew to adulthood in St. Thomas has joined her soulmate Tom on January 8th, her Mom and Dad, Dick and Celie and her siblings Alice, Lucille, Millie, Kay and Jimmy. A “Celtic Farewell” will be at a later date. Our sympathies to their family:
Anne and Rick, Nancy and Jack, Mary, Tom, Michael and Lisa, Catherine and Al, John and
Jolene. Tom and Mary have a dozen Grands and 9 Greats to carry on their legacy.




PRAYERS for Michael: Michael Phillips has had a kidney transplant on Thursday. It went well and his mother, Mary Elizabeth, thought he was coming home, but now he’s having a blood transfusion because his hemoglobin is so low. She is begging for prayers for Michael’s comfort, good health, and his life. His dad had a surgery the day before. Michael is on the Burns/Fogarty Branch of our St. Thomas Tree.

We thoroughly enjoyed the opening and The Charlie Sticha Band at the Toy Box in Killkenny Sunday afternoon. Lexi O’Connell, Jimmy’s princess was a waitress and will be for another week before she heads back of to the University of Wisconsin in Lacrosse. She’s going into Elementary Ed... Oh, those students are going to love her.

Roger and Eileen Meger Reak also enjoyed the celebration. They are proud grandparents of 4, now. Adam and Nicole just had their first baby on December 29th in New Prague. “Falyn Kayleen” was named after Grandma Kay and Grandma Eileen. Steve and Julie Tiede are the maternal grandparents. Sarah and Nick Johnson had baby number 3, Oliver Mack born on October 25th 2021, with Breck and Henrick present to welcome him home. New owner of the Toy Box is Steve Rutt...Yep. St. Thomas’s own...Gary and Shirley’s lad.

The Le Center Legion is having a steak fry on Saturday, January 22nd. St. Thomas folks who would like to attend can arrive between 6:00-7:00pm for social hour before supper. The menu includes steak, shrimp, salad bar and kid's meal.


The Sportsmen will be hosting Bowling Night at the 300 Club in Le Sueur on Saturday February 19th from 6pm-8pm. All members and their families are invited.

Winter’s half over, that mean’s spring is half here!

Maureen Meger Busse’s Memorial Mass was at Our Lady of the Prairie, Saturay, January 8, 2022. Maureen fought her battle with the dreaded cancer with a brave and cheerful attitude. In our memories Maureen will always be one of the kindest ladies we know. John and Maureen were eager and active Pioneer Power members, she helped with the flowers and mixed pancake batter for the breakfasts during the show, among other various jobs. Our Sympathies to her loving husband John, and their
children Laura, Pete, Kristi and Baby Busse...and to Maureen’s siblings, who will all meet together again... someday.

Orrin Retka and Dick O’Connell enjoyed lunch at the Toy Box in Kilkenny, Monday .

Congratulations to Hattie Tuck and Caleb Sullivan on being selected as one of the Le Sueur Henderson School ‘Students of the month.’

Davie Connelly spent time ice fishing with friends on Lake Washington over the weekend.

Mike and Paula O'Connell enjoyed Friday evening at the Roadhaus.

 Emily Sullivan is once again playing basketball with the Wild Wheelers, a wheelchair basketball team based out of Mankato. Last season had been canceled due to Covid, so she was especially excited to get back on the court with her teammates. Practices are held every Saturday for the next few months and culminates with one or two scrimmages against the Rolling Rowdies from the Twin Cities.

Bob and Casie Graham joined Tom and Loni as they attended the Mitchell Hall Concert at the Waconia High School Saturday evening. The concert was a fundraiser for Alyson Feltmann, a former member of Mitchell’s original band, ‘The Six Outlaws’. Alyson was in a devastating motorcycle accident in October. Alyson appeared on stage with Mitchell’s former band as a surprise to Alyson, and Mitchal’s present band ‘The Tennessee Three.’ They sang Elvis songs,and of course Johnny Cash... and we raised the roof with the Feltmens’ requested “everybody join in and sing”… ‘How Great thou Art” Amazing!

Speaking of Johnny Cash...Tom and Loni were killin’ time Friday afternoon at The Unique Classic Cars collection in Mankato, when we happened upon the last car owned by Johnny Cash on display there. Sign said, “Not for Sale!”

Have a great week, folks. We’re off to see “Spider-Man”... Fran, Dee...and Me!

Mickey Sullivan and Mike Holden attended the outdoor hockey game between the Minnesota Wild and St. Louis Blues at Target field in Minneapolis Saturday night. Brrrr.
Bruce and Cathy Halloran postponed Christmas. It was their daughter Ellen Bartyzal and grandson Adam Case birthday. They celebrated at daughter Rita and Nick Bartyzal’s home in Union Hill Sunday.
The O’Connell boys were up an at ‘em pretty early Thursday morning. Mike and Doc enjoyed biscuits an’ gravy and bacon an’ eggs at Annie’s in Belle Plaine with friends. They are probably there every morning, just that Thursday... we saw them.
Diane Burns, Deb and Jasmine Telon, Dale Ruhland and their white Maltese, “Snowball” enjoyed a short get away to Baraboo, Wisconsin last weekend.
After 44 years of employment at United Steel Products in Montgomery, Vern Tricka was honored at a retirement party at the White Front on Friday. Tom and Loni Graham enjoyed the gathering. Loni was formerly employed at United Steel Products during the 1970s and 80’s, and she can vouch for Vern, he was a hard worker and quite dedicated.
Hang in there! Our days are getting longer, and spring is on the way.

Christmas Eve Mass in St. Thomas was wonderful. It always is... Father James Burns officiated with Jonathon and Stephanie Cink assisting as altar servers to a little over 200. Todd Sullivan read the Liturgy. Jim Flaspeter, Jim Connelly, Bob and Becky Block took up the gifts, Jim Oak and Debbie O’Connell assisted Father with Communion. Jessica Retka played the organ while her mother Marie, directed 25 choir members. Father loves being here at St. Thomas as much as we do. Rumor has it He may be here for Easter. Now, I wonder who started that rumor...hope it was Father Burns.


Some folks spent a quiet, cozy Christmas Day at home, because of the times... This writer smiles knowing of two, oh there’s more, who are resting among our Dearly Departed who truly enjoy their families dearly, but loved the cozy quiet after the party and all went home... more. Many enjoyed family gathering to celebrate Christmases past, present and thinking of Christmases in the future. Our family was home... all of them...It was wonderful! Until somebody let our outside “Cat from Hell” in. Number one brave grandson, who thinks he’s a “Cat Whisperer” gently caught her and cradled her in his arms on the way to the door, when the cat realized she was on her way out! Number one grandson was determined she was! Total Chaos! Good thing he lives in Rochester where the ‘Love of his Life’ is a physicians assistant. Cole ended up in E. R., later that evening getting checked. All is well...NOW.


Caleb Sullivan and his dad Jim went to the Vikings game. Caleb turned 12 a couple weeks ago and this was one of his presents. The outcome of the game wasn't ideal, but the meal at Buffalo Wild Wings after the game was.


Have a Healthy, Happy, and Blessed New Year
