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. They spent her remaining years together, living in Florida and Minneapolis.As the years went on, Teddie became known as “Gram,” a doting, supportive and sometimes kooky grandmother, who wrapped her grandchildren and stepgrandchildren with the warmth of an electric blanket.Rain or shine, Teddie was at sporting events, concerts and every family gathering on the calendar. 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.

Grater, Elliot

Age 73 of Maplewood.

Osmondson, Aarika James Automn
June 11, 1991 - February 22, 2018
Age 26 of Hudson, Wisconsin. Aarika James Automn Osmondson, aka “Baby V,” “Peanut,” “Nutmeg,” “KA-Ka,” and Mall of Aarika, a beautiful and brilliant 26-year-old woman, made her incredulous unpredictably predictable, “that’s so Aarika” exit on Thursday, Feb. 22, 2018, at 12:58 p.m., with the love of her life holding her earthly body. Our Peanut came into this world, like she did everything, on her own terms, on June 11, 1991, and was immediately dubbed “our favorite first-born child.” An amazing athlete, she loved the water and lettered early before swimming like a shark through her world. But her competitive spirit did not stop at the water, especially with two younger siblings. One of her most finely-honed skills was creating games with ever-evolving rules, such as the “I Forgot to Tell You, I Can Do That, but YOU can NOT” Rule, which was never to be confused with cheating. However, even in victory, she was benevolent with her brother and sister:  exercising her GENTLE WILL, Aarika’s four $1 bills were often exchanged for their single $10 bill – “As everyone knows, FOUR is more than ONE!” Aarika was one of the most generous souls we ever had the pleasure of knowing. Some know she had her head SHAVED more than once to donate to Locks of Love, most notably just before Christmas 2017 … really!!! Nice family picture!  But Aarika didn’t care about that. Rather, someone who didn’t have hair, now got her beautiful locks – after all, she could just grow more. Baby V’s uncanny ability to transform herself into the most absurdly silly-faced, blueberry-eyed cartoon character would routinely create laughter and face contortion contests in equal measure. Her irreverent sense of humor could not be contained, as she would bust out wiggling to “Achy Breaky Heart,” “Mombo #5,” “I Like Big Butts,” or “Rock Lobster” or performing an interpretive dance as a velociraptor in the middle of the road or even through the showroom of a car dealership. A trend setter and modest young woman, Aarika was quite possibly the only SIZE 0 who thought she NEEDED SPANX with her 5" heels or 4″ strappy-zippered-platform boots. The designers behind Dolce & Gabbana, Clinique, Louis Vuitton, Maybelline, Gucci and SpanX are expected to be devastated by the inspirational loss caused by the final closing of the Mall of Aarika. Our Nutmeg enjoyed Zebra Cake Rolls, Peanut Butter Cups, chocolate milk, spaghetti, eggnog, McGriddles, freshly-baked, squished bread and every crisp juicy apple that ever crossed her path. She loved to entertain and to help people join her in inappropriate laughter at the absurdities of life.  She hated “poison” (mustard), political correctness, CoNfOrMiNg, hypocrisy and stereotypes. Aarika lived more EVERY day than most do in a lifetime. Although Aarika’s language skills were no secret, most were surprised to learn that English was actually her third language, behind Mumble and Profanity. But her artistic expression went deeper than just language. Her works expressed raw emotion; from a deep, dark, cold, lonely pain that could be felt with every charcoal smudge, to the UnPaRaLLeLeD JOY brought to life through a single jubilant brush stroke. Her collections of quotations were applied equally across soul penetrating collages, insightful journals and playful ransom notes. If you are among the blessed, you possess one of Aarika’s creatively handmade-just-for-you gifts that will undoubtedly be cherished forever. Aarika’s regrets were few, but included the snake-skin pants worn in Miss Koskela’s third-grade class, “bathing” the family kitty in the LAKE, adding hot sauce to her sister’s spaghetti in 1999, crashing her brother’s car, shooting more deer than her father, allowing Jason to win at Thumb War, and beating her Mom-Bomb at Spoons, “that one time.”  Aarika considered a dare a challenge, with nearly nothing she wasn’t willing to try at least TWICE. Aarika is survived by her faithful best friend and partner of three years, Joe Zillgitt; “Mom-Bomb,” Pamela Scharton; step-dad “Three-Top,” Jason Scharton; father, James “Dork” Osmondson; stepmother, Michelle; brother, “Captain Cupcake Krusty Pantz,” Landon Osmondson; Big-Lil Sis, “Brussel Sprout,” Allaskah Scharton; stepbrother, “Bronze Charmer,” Joey Scharton; stepsister, “Llama Legs,” Jenny Scharton; stepsister, Sarah Hesse; grandma, Pauline Lawrence; grandma, Marlene Osmondson; Grandma Elsie and Grandpa Terry Scharton; and grandma, Gretchen Becherer. She is also survived by many aunts, uncles, Great-But-Not-as-Awesome as Aarika; cousins, friends and acquaintances who may have thought they were there, in part, to help Aarika. In truth, they soon realized that they had unknowingly become HER student. Preceded by many, but most notably grandpa, Floyd, grandpa, Richard, grandpa, Carl and nephew, Baby Ascher. Aarika died, as she lived, on her own terms, KICKING ADDICTION’S A$$!!  While the true cause of death has yet to be determined, she is believed to have passed after delivering a dose of her scathingly sharp wit, in an unfortunate, “I’m Rubber, You’re Glue” stand-off.  While far-fetched, it will turn out to be, most assuredly, more interesting than the facts.  Aarika’s proudest achievements were the time spent with family and the years at Joe’s side, though he is quick to say that he was most often just trying to keep up with her unlimited zest for life. Aarika filled our lives with adventure, artistry, laughter and JoY.  Thank-you, Aarika, for blessing our lives with All of YOU. Services will be held at Mount Carmel Lutheran Church, 1701 St. Anthony Pkwy, Minneapolis, MN 55418Tuesday, March 20, at 11 a.m., with snacks and laughter to follow.  Attendees should avoid wearing black and be prepared for spontaneous renditions of, “You are My Sunshine.” In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Saint Stephens Human Services (ststephensmpls.org/donate, 2309 Nicollet Ave. South, Minneapolis, MN 55404.  Gifts to the family will also be donated in Aarika’s name. The family’s condolences are extended to those who don’t have a daughter, sister, aunt or friend as STUPENDOUSLY FANTASTIC as our Aarika.

Bailey, Vicki Lynn
November 19, 1955 - February 19, 2018
Age 62 of Lake Elmo. A woman of extraordinary talent, integrity, and generosity, died peacefully at home in the loving arms of her husband and daughter. Born in 1955, Vicki grew up in Black River Falls, Wisconsin and was educated in Minnesota, earning a BA in History at St. Olaf College, graduating magna cum laude from William Mitchell College of Law, and earning an MBA from the University of St. Thomas. She met her husband, Louis Speltz, at William Mitchell and they married in 1982. Vicki began her 31-year career at Advantus Capital Management as an investment attorney. When she retired, she was Chief Legal Officer for Advantus Capital Management, Chief Compliance Officer for Advantus and Securian Funds Trust, and a Vice President of Securian Financial Group. An example of just one of her accomplishments at Advantus was her key role in creating, developing, and implementing its compliance program. Vicki advised and served on many boards, and her expertise was recognized nationally: she served as President of the American College of Investment Counsel and in 2012 was named a Top Woman in Finance by Finance and Commerce. Equally important was Vicki's ability to provide leadership and to foster community at Advantus. She expected and modeled integrity and respect for others, and was a trusted mentor and legal advisor. She founded the MIMLIC Fairies, a singing group that wrote and performed original songs at company celebrations and recognition events, and even used games, skits, and an Oscar-themed ceremony to make mandatory compliance training fun. Vicki's generosity and passion for service extended far beyond her professional life. She championed the work of Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest, served on its board, and grew Junior Achievement's partnership with Securian, while also teaching classes about entrepreneurship and financial literacy for fifteen years. Her work was recognized with a top leadership award from Junior Achievement in 2012. Vicki was also a driving force in developing the Primary Ciliary Dyskinesia Foundation. As Chairman of the Board, Vicki spear-headed fundraising for the Foundation, the development of clinical centers, and the creation of a patient registry. Vicki hosted four to five holiday parties a year at Visitation Monastery of Minneapolis, where children played games to win school supplies, homemade cupcakes, Halloween costumes, household staples, and toys. Over the course of twenty years, these parties have strengthened community ties for thousands of schoolchildren in North Minneapolis. Vicki's love of parties, and gift for connecting people, carried over into the many ways she brought together her friends and extended families, baking magnificent desserts, hosting exuberant showers, and most important of all, initiating an annual Speltz family reunion. When the children were young, the latter included "Olympic" games, complete with an opening ceremony, flags, and trophies. Her creativity and level-headed thinking will be sorely missed by all. Vicki is survived by her husband Louis Speltz and her daughter Elizabeth Speltz (David DeWitt); her sisters Patty Iverson, Betty Dobson, Nellie Kniseley and Donna Larson; and her brothers Bill Bailey and Jim Bailey. The memorial service and reception will be held at The Woman's Club in Minneapolis (410 Oakgrove St., Minneapolis, MN) on March 19, 2018 at 11 am. Her private interment will be at the Lakewood Cemetery Garden Mausoleum. Memorial gifts can be made to the PCD Foundation, Junior Achievement of the Upper Midwest, or the Visitation Monastery of Minneapolis. (Published in Pioneer Press from Feb. 26 to Mar. 4, 2018).

Farmer, Judith Lehman
October 8, 1935 - February 14, 2018
Age 82 of Minneapolis, passed away on February 14, 2018, after a year-long struggle with neuro-endocrine cancer. She was 82. Judy was a life-long leader and organizer who became the longest serving member of the Minneapolis School Board. Judy was born in 1935 in Denver, Colorado, the only child of Amer Lehman and Joy Kinkel Lehman. She attended elementary school in Denver and a one-room school in Idalia, Colorado, where she lived on her grandfather's homestead. She then moved to nearby Wray, Colorado. Growing up, she raised 4-H calves including a grand champion, Coronado. Judy was determined, stubborn and persistent, even in her teens. When a family friend boasted that he made the world's best fudge, she spent many hours developing a recipe that even he had to admit was better. It became a family Christmas favorite. In college at Stanford she majored in History and studied Russian, and met her future husband, Ted. Judy dedicated her life to public education, children's and social justice issues, and Democratic politics. She inherited her passion for politics from her father, and first became personally involved as a volunteer coordinator for Citizens for Kennedy in 1960. After college she took education courses and became a high school teacher. She taught social studies at the Taipei American School in Taiwan, in Seattle and in Sudbury, Massachusetts, before moving to Minnesota in 1968. She served as the director of the Southeast Cooperative Nursery School and then helped to plan and implement Southeast Alternatives (SEA), an innovative, federally supported choice program within the Minneapolis Public Schools. She was most deeply involved with the establishment of Marcy Open School, a component of SEA. There she worked as the parent and community resource coordinator in an office marked with big letters "OPOP" - Other People Other Places - that helped students go out into the community to learn about things they were interested in and invited people from the community to come into the school and tell students about what they did. In 1979 Judy ran for the Minneapolis School Board where she served for 27 years. At the state level she served a term as the president of the Minnesota School Boards Association, and at the national level chaired the Council of Great City Schools. She had awesome people skills, mobilized large numbers of volunteers for causes, and mentored many individuals who were new to public service. Judy was active in DFL politics, and in numerous campaigns, including service as the 5th District coordinator for Jessie Jackson's presidential campaign in 1988. She was a long time member of the League of Women Voters, the National Organization for Women, and the NAACP, Planned Parenthood, the Southern Poverty Law Center. She was on the board of Way to Grow, and after retiring from the school board, she headed Kids Voting Minneapolis. Judy had an insatiable curiosity about the world. After college she spent a year working in Denmark and traveling in Western Europe. Later adventures took her to East Asia, Southeast Asia and the Middle East. For her 50th wedding anniversary she organized a trip to Greece and Turkey. In 2012 she and Ted traveled around the world with the Semester at Sea Program. She is survived by her husband of 59 years Edward (Ted) Farmer, a daughter, Joy, a son, Edward (Ellen Gunnarsdottir), and two grandsons, Henry and Edward (Teddy). Plans for a memorial service are pending. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be sent to Way to Grow (125 W. Broadway Ave. Suite 110, Minneapolis, MN 55411) or the Southern Poverty Law Center (400 Washington Avenue, Montgomery, AL 36104). (Published in the Star Tribune on February 20, 2018)
