July 8, 1948 - September 15, 2011
Mrs. Caroline Kalthoff (nee Frank), 63 years of Humboldt, passed away on Thursday, September 15, 2011 at Humboldt District Hospital due to complications arising from Diabetes and a stroke. Caroline was born to Joseph and Emily (nee Jaeb) Frank on July 8, 1948 in Humboldt. She attended St. Matthew’s School until grade eight and then graduated from the Humboldt Colligate Institute in 1966. Caroline began to work at Dr. Rooney’s office in Humboldt. Within a year she was swept off her feet by the love of her life and she married Wayne Kalthoff on August 2, 1967 at Willmont. They then moved to the farm near Fulda where they began their farming career. Caroline was very active in the daily operations of the farm working side by side with Wayne. Together they were blessed with three children. Caroline’s duties as domestic engineer were taken seriously and she provided a warm, loving and welcoming home to her family and friends. She was a very hard worker who kept her large vegetable and flower gardens meticulously manicured. She became a Weekender Home Party Sales Rep for many years. In 1992 they moved to Humboldt where she was kept busy with her “moms” running them to appointments, etc. Caroline entered the Office Education Program and graduated in 1999. Her greatest love was to create Christmas wreaths and she gained quite a reputation of making beautiful pieces that she shared with her family and friends. Her family always praised her for her ability to bake the best sweet treats. They could never figure out how she could be such a great baker and not be able to eat any of her creations. Caroline was a very spiritual lady who was private and yet very outgoing and social and loved a good laugh. She would surprise many with an unexpected joke or comment that would crack everyone up. Caroline would join Wayne regularly on a road trip to different parts of Canada and the USA where she would assist him with the farm progress shows or just enjoy some quiet time resting and her trip usually included a good day or two of shopping. In 2007 Caroline began employment with Malinoski & Danyluik Funeral Home as a funeral/office assistant. As with any job she took on, Caroline gave her best, everything was always done to the highest level of perfection. Many families commented on her compassion and friendliness shown to them. Caroline was always very proud of her family and their accomplishments and loved them very much. Caroline was the captain of her team of sisters - enjoying shopping sprees or just talking on the phone and will always have a strong bond with them. She always kept in very close contact with her extended family if not daily then on a weekly basis. Always giving and loving unconditionally was what made Caroline the happiest. Caroline will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband of 44 years, Wayne Kalthoff of Humboldt; their three children and three grandchildren: Wesley (Colleen) Kalthoff of Humboldt; Denise (Barry) Nett and children, Chelsea and Colby of Prince Albert; and Darrell (Shauna) Kalthoff and daughter, Sierra of Saskatoon; her mother, Emily Frank of Middle Lake; three sisters: Marci (Fabian) Paydli of Humboldt, Dolores (David) Hauber of Cudworth and Colette (Pat) Miller of Bonnyville, AB; sisters and brothers-in-law: Karen (Ralph) Fleischhacker, Neil (Mary Ann) Kalthoff of Calgary and Myles (Sherry) Kalthoff; and by numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

November 25, 1930 - August 26, 2011
Mrs. Mary Hagen, age 80 of St. Mary’s Villa Humboldt passed away peacefully at her residence on Friday, August 26, 2011. Mary was born on November 25, 1930 to Andrew and Mary (nee Rutchuck) Nicholat in the Fosston District. She took her education at Mallard School and then began working at the Wadena Bakery, a job she excelled in and little did she know this job would expand her talents as she raised eight children. On June 8 1952 she married Raymond Hagen. Together, they began a mixed farm on the land Raymond’s grandfather previously owned in the Rose Valley area. She was a very active partner in the day to day operations of the farm. Mary always made time for company and usually on a daily basis would have someone sitting at the kitchen table sharing stories. They were blessed with one daughter and seven sons, so needlessly to say she produced large vegetable and fruit gardens. These gardens were used for necessity and meditation where she would escape and enjoy some quiet spiritual times. Mary was a natural homemaker and taking on the role of domestic engineer came very easy. She loved to cook and that showed in her delicious dishes she would create that filled the house with wonderful aroma for the children to remember including the 48 loaves of bread she would bake on a weekly basis. Preparing the Ukrainian traditional meals for Christmas and Easter brought her much pleasure as her family would sit around the large table and enjoy her cooking. Mary was a very strong hard working woman who wasn’t afraid to get dirty, but when it was time to be seen in the public she always presented herself with elegance and beauty. She would make sure not a hair was out of place and her lipstick was on. In 1994 Raymond and Mary retired to Muenster where she continued to enjoy her domestic duties. Due to failing health Mary had to move to St. Mary’s Villa where she resided until her passing. Mary will be sadly missed and lovingly remembered by her husband of 59 years RAYMOND Hagen of Humboldt; eight children, 18 grandchildren and 10 great grandchildren: Valerie (Gordon) Olynick of Quill Lake and family Falen (Greg) Nelson of Tisdale and Garett Olynick of Quill Lake; Dwight (Barbara) Hagen of Archerwill and family Darnell Hagen (Donna) and their children Ella and Freya of Saskatoon, Somer Wourms (Shawn) and children Warren, Austin and Kenton of Grayson, Lance Hagen (Courtney) of Saskatoon, Adriel Hagen (Alicia) of Muenster and Whitney Hagen (Brad) of Saskatoon; Elvis (Maryann Major) Hagen of Muenster and family Shannon Barth (Kevin) and children Callum, Hailey and Jackson of Brampton, ON, Cory Hagen of Saskatoon and sons Kyle and Tyler, Greg Hagen of Vancouver, BC Nicholas Hagen-Major and Christopher Hagen-Major both of Muenster; Gerry (Denise) Hagen of Saskatoon; Merlin (Angela) Hagen and daughter Savannah of Saskatoon; Lyle (Bernadette) Hagen and family Katelynn, Alyssa and Derek of Saskatoon; Curtis Hagen of Yellowknife, NWT and Nevin (Linda) Hagen and family Reese and Liam of Fort McMurray, AB; one sister Christine Fedirko of Saskatoon and sisters and brother-in-law Irene (Ken) Donald of Kelvington, Sagne (Larry) Hunter of San diego, CA and Ivan Hagen of Winnipeg, MB; and by many nieces and nephews.
