PEQUOT LAKES -- Mary F. Tkalcich, Pequot Lakes, was called to her eternal home on Saturday, June 11, 2005. She was born to Yugoslavian immigrants in Pennsylvania. Mary moved to Minnesota after marrying her husband, Frank, whom she was given 75 years to share with him and her three sons, Raymond, John and Joe. She and her husband raised their family first in Ely and later in Staples, Minn. Health issues brought her to St. Cloud and finally to the Heritage House in Pequot Lakes. Everywhere she resided, Mary left behind friends who knew her as a gentle soul with an easy and understanding nature. Her sons, her grandchildren and her friends will all miss her and would invite those wishing to memorialize her to join them on Wednesday, June 15.
A committal service will be held on Wednesday, June 15, 2005, at 11:15 a.m. at the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery, Camp Ripley, Minn., and a memorial service at 1 p.m. at the Halvorson-Johnson Funeral Home in Brainerd with Pastor Jim Rogers officiating. Friends and family are invited to gather after the service at Joe and Tammy Tkalcich's home later for refreshments.
Arrangements are with Halvorson-Johnson Funeral Home in Brainerd.
