Gerald Marthaler

May 1, 1930 — November 6, 2020

Osakis, MN

Gerald ‘Jerry’ Marthaler, passed into his new life by taking the hand of an angel on Friday, November 6, 2020 at the Galeon in Osakis, MN at the age of 90 years.

Gerald Anton Marthaler, the eldest of five children, was born on May 1, 1930 in Osakis, MN to John and Marcella (Beste) Marthaler.  He grew up on the family farm where he enjoyed working alongside his parents and siblings.  Jerry never married but was very close with his parents and siblings.  He especially enjoyed his many nieces and nephews and their families.  Jerry was a loyal John Deere fan and was quite proud of his collection of tractors and implements.  Each fall, Jerry would take a ride out to the family farm where he could observe what was taking place.  He also loved to check on the crops to see how they were coming along.

Jerry is survived by his two sisters, Lois Marek of Albuquerque, NM and Gladys Leonardi of Wheat Ridge, CO; many nieces and nephews and a sister-in-law, Carol Marthaler of  Alexandria, MN.  He is preceded in death by his parents, an infant brother, his brother, John Marthaler, Jr., a sister-in-law, Dorothy Marthaler and brothers-in-law, Larry Marek and Larry Leonardi.

A Mass of Resurrection will be held Thursday, November 12, 2020 at 11am at Immaculate Conception Church in Osakis, MN with Fr. David Petron officiating.  Interment is at the St. Alexius Cemetery in West Union, MN with active pallbearers, Karen VonWahlde, Pat Marthaler, Linda Uhlenkamp, Janet Neu Ramos, Ken Marthaler, Colleen Miller and Dennis Marthaler.  Honorary pallbearers are Dan Marek and Debra Vigil.
