Stanley "Stan" Stalboerger

 

 

Stanley Joseph Stalboerger, age 83, was called home by our Lord from amidst his family in Elrosa, MN on December 6, 2023.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. Monday, December 11 at Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Elrosa with Rev. Mark Botzet officiating. Interment will be in the parish cemetery. 

Visitation will be from 2 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the Patton-Schad Funeral Home in Sauk Centre and from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. Monday at the church. Parish prayers will be held at 5:30 p.m. Sunday evening at the funeral home.

Born at home in Lake George Township, MN, he was the second son of Edmund and Selma (née Eibensteiner) Stalboerger.

Stan was married to Evelyn (née Borgerding) in August 1966.  Their children are Michael (Aly) Stalboerger, Michelle (Blake) Carlson, Mary (John) Rademacher, Brian (Risa) Stalboerger, Aimee (John) Huston, Christine (Steve) Schulz, Eric (Stacy) Stalboerger, Jonathan Stalboerger, Kayla (David) Meier, Allison (Ross) Hollermann.  Stan & Evie enjoyed all 38 of their grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren.

Before taking over the family farm, Stan served in the National Guard and worked for Beuning Fertilizer and Cold Spring Granite.  The bulk of Stan’s working years consisted of dairy farming with his wife Evie.  He served on the board of DHIA  and Northfork Mutual Insurance.  In 1998, they sold the cows and Stan began a new stage in life exchanging being home every night with the new concept of “weekends off” and “vacation”.  He worked for Mages Farms, drove semi over-the-road, and as a shuttle driver for Bayer Built Trucking.

It was often said of Stan during his farming years that his main hobby was visiting.  However, after selling the cows, he devoted more time to traveling with Evie to places like Washington D. C., Arizona, Oregon (via Amtrak), and Hawaii.  In addition, he liked to travel with his Eibensteiner cousins to Las Vegas.  He also enjoyed singing with the Maennerchor (men’s chorus), watching Twins games, playing 500 and Solo, and took up fishing with coworkers (with no luck).

Along with Evie, Stan worked to raise their family in the faith by strong example and supported the parish as president of the St. James Society of Catholic Aid, decades as a Lector, and teaching CCD classes.

Stan was best known for his ability to visit with anyone for any length of time.  His kindness and willingness to help a neighbor or a stranger will never be forgotten.  Stan’s ability to crack a joke in the face of trials gave encouragement and perspective to whoever came to him in their own times of doubt.  After talking with Dad, his kids knew everything would be ok.

He is survived by Marilyn Schoenberg, Sharon and Daniel Hemiadan, Ramona Stalboerger, Barbara and John Barten, Roxane and Gene Kampsen and Robert Braun. 

Stan is preceded in death by his siblings, David, Patricia (Seitz), Irene (Braun), stillborn brother Joseph, in-laws Dennis Seitz and John Schoenberg, and granddaughter Sarah Huston.
