2019 November 18 St Thomas News Tom Graham 11/19/19 01:11 PM
2019 November 18 St Thomas News

Masses at St. Anne’s in Le Sueur are Saturdays at 5:15 p. m., and Sundays 8 and 10:30 a. m. with Father Chris Shofner officiating.

John Callahan passed away Wednesday in Alaska at the age of 94. Many of us know him better as Bud Callahan and Marie Hayden’s brother. He was very well known in the St. Thomas, Belle Plaine and Le Sueur areas. He will be buried up in Alaska. The family is planning on a memorial service for him, here in the spring.

A good crowd and many good friends showed up for the KCHK member appreciation and 50th birthday party. Visited with the KCHK crew and Eddie Shimota and Friends entertained and sounded so good. Among the crowd were the St. Thomas connections having a great time; Bill Byrne, Mary Catherine Connelly, Fran Tiegs, and their great niece, Tammy Erickson, Mosie and Mary Jirak, Mary Jean, Bruce and Cathy Halloran. Cathy was one of the many winners. Our daughter Cari and her girls, Katelyn and Madelyn Landwer joined us again this year, enjoyed popcorn, pop and ‘danced like Grandma’ when she used to take us in the 70’s to what she called “the free dance”.

It was our pleasure to gift “Jirak” glasses to Mosie and Mary. We knew they’d be at the dance, they never miss. After 5 generations our Jirak blood is getting mighty thin and Mosie and Mary Shaughnessy Jirak are the only Jiraks we know with St. Thomas connections.

With a heavy heart, Chuck Kajer’s voice, smile and stories are on our minds this week and will be for a long time. Years ago when I started writing “The St. Thomas News”, our setup here at home wasn’t so good. Tom was gone more and “Everything goes wrong when Tom is gone” a phase our daughter, Cari used to say. I was worked up, the news wouldn’t send, this writer was going to print it out and drive it over. I called Chuck “What’s a matter, Loni? Can’t send an e-mail during a snowstorm?” He chuckled at my delayed reaction to catch the full picture, zapped my stress, and walked me through the sending part. He had empathy, understanding and was so down-to-earth. What a great guy. Our sincere sympathy to Jenny and their family. Sometime through the years, finding out Chuck’s relationship to Virginia Brown of St. Thomas endeared him to us even more. We keep an old picture of Chuck in the office, great smile... probably his 1978 graduation picture, my uncle came across it while writing the Pexa book years ago. R.I.P., Chuck.

Til next time, have a good week folks. Stay safe and God bless.

Services for Edward Rasmussen of Le Sueur are Thursday and Friday in Le Sueur. Ed has been a Le Sueur Henderson School math instructor 1967 till 1997. He was married to Annette O’Brien on the Halloran and Burns Branches of our St. Thomas Tree. Our sincere sympathies to Annette and their family.

Father Roger prayed for good health to Ronnie Callahan at Mass last week. Dick O’Connell among others have been visiting Ronnie at Abbott the last few weeks. Ronnie has been admitted with a rare virus. We wish him well with warm thoughts and prayers. We visited with Ronnie, who was out and about during the Dozinky parade this year, all smiles and good humor, a picture of good health.

Scott County Conservation Officer James “Jim Bob” Fogarty appeared on the KCHK DT Squared Show on Wednesday with law enforcement guys Dave and Dennis Tietz. Jim Bob talked about rules and regulations regarding the deer hunting season. Jim Bob is the son of Gert and Joe Fogarty. Gert is on the Halloran Branch of our St. Thomas Tree, being Gert’s son and John Anthony’s grandson. Kinda sounded a little like Dr. Tim.

Joe and Emily O’Connell Grote welcomed Nora Ann into the world November 5th at 6:24 p. m. weighing 7 pounds and 7 ounces, and 20.5 inches long. Congratulations to maternal grandparents Doc and Rita, and great grandma Sharon.



Megan Rutt was named First-team All-Conference in Volleyball for the third-straight year in a row at Bethany College in Mankato!

Masses at St. Anne’s in Le Sueur are Saturdays at 5:15 p. m., and Sundays 8 and 10:30 a. m. with Father Chris Shofner officiating.

Father Roger Hessian blessed the graves of our Dearly Beloved on All Souls Day, included were the graves of his ancestors, grandparents, John H. and Nellie Shea and his great grandparents Timothy and Mary Hessian Shea. Mass was held following the blessings to about 70 as Father Roger officiated,
Jim Walker read the Scriptures, and T. C., Jim Oak, Gary and Shirley Rutt presented the gifts. Debbie O. and T. C. assisted Father as Eucharistic Ministers.

Father announced from the altar, he was using his cousin, Monsignor Pat Hessian’s Chalice. The Chalice the monsignor used through two Tours of Duty in Viet Nam.


Max, Jim and Mickey Sullivan attended a memorial service at the Historic Hope Glen Farm in Cottage Grove, MN
for Bonnie Lowe on Monday, November 4, with Pastor Nicholas Kooi presiding.  Bonnie was the wife of Gregg Lowe, son of the late Milton Lowe.


Tom and Loni Graham attended the visitation for Janice Geckler on Monday in Edina. Janice’s husband Roger, was a longtime manager at Minnesota Valley Electric Coop.

Great job at State Cross Country Hunter Rutt! St. Thomas is so proud of you and all your hard work and dedication you have put in this year! Congratulations also to Hunter’s older sister Megan on completing 4 successful years on the Bethany College Volleyball time. Joe and Jenny are Megan and Hunter’s folks.
Ladies Night Out was a fun time in Henderson on Thursday evening. Guys were enjoying themselves as well, Davie and Ryan were out and about enjoying the meat raffle and socializing.

Erik, Jill, and Alison Holden enjoyed Leo Berger’s 80th birthday party at the Roadhaus Saturday night.
Luke Cornelius’s Birthday was celebrated at the Roadhaus Event Center that evening also.

One of my St. Thomas besties asked me to use “vulnerable leap”, as in a large uncontrollable step out of one’s comfort zone, in the column this week. This writer is not a “vulnerable leaper”, all my steps are carefully planned and deliberate. How’s that, “Bestie”?
