Charles Bergstrom, 78

Charles Edward Bergstrom, age 78, of Shoreview,  (formerly of Buffalo) died at his home on Friday, December 13, 2019.

Charles Edward Bergstrom was born October 10, 1941 in the Swedish Hospital in Minneapolis, to Edward and Ruth (Gilberg) Bergstrom. He lived in Camden Station (now Brooklyn Park) until age twelve. He attended Berg and Benson grade schools and attended seventh grade at Anoka High School. After moving to Buffalo, in August 1954, he graduated from Buffalo High School in 1959.

“Chuck” was drafted into the US Army in 1964 and after basic training in Missouri, he served in Fort Riley, KS and in Vietnam, and also visited several other countries. Chuck, a Spec. E-5 served as a helicopter parts specialist.

On November 17, 1966, he married Coralyn Virginia Florell at the First Baptist Church in Sioux Falls, SD. He had just received three speeding tickets, so Coralyn drove as they eloped, stopping in Pipestone, to ask his sister, Muriel and husband, Pete to stand up for them. God blessed them with two wonderful daughters.

Chuck worked for his dad in the farm implement business and eventually bought the business, originally with his brother, Doug in the 1970’s. Chuck liquidated the farm store in 1994. After taking a year off, he worked for Long Lake Tractor, and after they closed in 2000, he worked part-time as a driver for an auto parts store.

Chuck and Coralyn, in their first thirty-three years together, moved a total of nine times, always thinking of a home more suitable for their current needs. In 2015, they moved to Shoreview, to be closer to their daughters and their families.

Chuck gave his heart to his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ at the age of twelve, but was not always a perfect Christian. In the years of retirement, his desire to serve his Lord and Savior increased significantly. Though most of his years he served at Buffalo Evangelical Covenant Church, he and Coralyn started attending a monthly hymn sing at a small country church and became involved serving at other churches as well.

Chuck has also enjoyed water sports, friends, travel, hymn sings, and best of all his children and grandchildren and loved to plan fun events with them.

Chuck is survived by: his loving wife, Coralyn; daughters, Lisa (Erik) Lovdahl of Falcon Heights, and Emily (Rob) Stigney of Vadnais Heights; grandchildren, Jessalyn (Derrick) Benner, Bo and Nick Lovdahl, and Ty and Cal Stigney; sister, Muriel Lindquist of Buffalo; brothers, Douglas (Judy) Bergstrom of Buffalo, Donald (Debi) Bergstrom of Douglas, WY, and Dale (Diane) Bergstrom of Monticello.

He was preceded in death by: his parents; sisters, Janice Olson and Ginny Semelsberger; and brothers-in-law, Eldon Olson, Peter Lindquist and Larry Semelsberger.

Visitation was held at Holcomb-Henry-Boom-Purcell Funeral Home of Shoreview, Tuesday, December 17 from 3:00-7:00 p.m. and one hour prior to the service at Buffalo Evangelical Covenant Church of Buffalo. A funeral service was held at the Buffalo Evangelical Covenant Church of Buffalo on Wednesday, December 18 at 11:00 a.m., with visitation one hour prior to the service at church.

Edward Bokusky, 75

Edward Jacob Bokusky, age 75, of Buffalo, passed away peacefully at home on December 10, 2019.

He was born in Delano, on April 7, 1944 to Jacob and Margaret (Pillatzke) Bokusky. After graduating from high school in Delano, he furthered his education at the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, Minnesota. He received his Bachelor’s degree in Political Science in 1966.

Following his college graduation, he enrolled in to the Air Force Officer Training Program to serve his country during the Vietnam War. He flew trainer planes and trained pilots, did rescue missions, and was honorably discharged with a rank of Captain in 1971. He proudly served in the military for five years.

While stationed overseas, there was an ad in the local newspaper for people to write letters to men and women in the service during the holidays, and that was how Ed and Gerri Havisto initially “met.” She sent him a letter and, eventually, the two became pen pals. When he returned home, they went on a very memorable date; dinner at the Dairy Queen and a Movie at the “old” Delano Theater. Eventually, the two were joined in holy marriage on June 13, 1970 at St. Francis Xavier Church in Buffalo. They were blessed with two children.

Ed was known for playing pranks on his family and friends; he went as far as placing mouse traps in Gerri’s lunch bags and hiding crescent wrenches in her purse when she went to the bank to cash in spare change!  He always had a funny joke to tell.

He was an avid gardener, and would grow an amazing assortment of vegetables, fruits, plants, and flowers. Ed would make jellies and wines with the various fruits he would grow, and would enter his jelly in the Wright County Fair. Later in life, he became a well-known baker also entering his baking items in the same fair as well. He also grew a unique love for his pets, reluctantly feeding his outdoor cats and even recently enjoyed walking his grand-dog Teddy. You could also find him in a fishing boat, spending many hours on the lake catching all kinds of fish mostly with his trusty cane poles.

Ed and Gerri loved to travel and taking road trips across the country were some of the most memorable moments they spent as a family.

Overall, Ed was truly a genuine, loving, and kind person. He was devoted to his faith, and loyal to God, family, and country. He was a proud member of St. Francis Xavier Church, and was a member of the church choir, adoration, Bible study, and Knights of Columbus.

He was preceded in death by: his parents, Jacob and Margaret; brothers, Leo and Louie; sisters, Laura Karels and Mary Kowalke; brothers-in-law, George Karels Sr, Leo Neaton, and Donny Kowalke; father-in-law, Ben Havisto; and many other beloved family members.

Ed is survived by: his wife of 49-1/2 years, Gerri; son, James “Jim” (Jody); daughter, Amy (Scott) Thorpe; grandchildren, Jacob, Samuel, Eben, and Lauren; sister, Helen Neaton; brother, Joe (Diane); mother-in-law, Bernice Havisto; and many other in-laws, relatives, and friends.

Visitation was held Monday, December 16, 2019 from 5:00-8:00 p.m. with prayer service at 7:30 p.m. at St. Francis Xavier Church in Buffalo. Mass of Christian Burial was held Tuesday, December 17, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. with visitation one hour prior at the church.

Mass of Christian Burial was held 10:30 a.m. Saturday, December 14, 2019 at St. Ignatius Catholic Church, Annandale with Fr. John Meyer as Celebrant. Burial followed at Pleasant View Cemetery.

Michael John Dougherty was born August 13, 1965 in Osmond, Nebraska to John and Dolores (Fischer) Dougherty. As a young child, Mike’s family moved to Annandale in 1971. In 1983, he graduated from Annandale High School and then continued his education at the University of Minnesota.

On July 12, 1985, Mike was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Coreen “Cork” Johnson, at St. Ignatius Catholic Church. They continued to make their home in Annandale where they raised their three sons. Mike worked at Turf’s Up and as an engineer at Wright-Hennepin before starting Dougherty & Associates in 1995 in Buffalo.

Mike always made his family and friends his top priority, whether it be coaching his kids’ teams or hosting and entertaining guests. When hosting, Mike could usually be found cooking or manning the grill. He and Cork loved to travel, go for walks, and be on or near the water. He always found a project to work on around the house. Mike also tended to listen to music at a high decibel and sought out a way to satisfy his sweet tooth. As much as Mike cherished being a husband and father, becoming Grandpa to his seven adoring grandchildren heightened his role as a family man tenfold.
