Louise Chalupsky passed away Thursday, Dec. 26, 2019, at Scandia House in Pine City at the age of 88. Louise was a social, intelligent, funny, beautiful soul all the way until the end of her life on this earth. A very special thanks to the staff at the Scandia House and St. Croix Hospice for their loving care.
Louise Blanche Chalupsky was born on April 20, 1931, to Louis and Lydia (Mikyska) Chalupsky on the family farm in Beroun. She was the first of four children. Louise graduated from Pine City High School on June 1, 1949, as the Salutatorian of her class. She became a bookkeeper and had a long career in this field. She moved to various residences in Minneapolis before she settled into her own comfortable condominium in St. Anthony. This is where she lived until she was unable to live alone, due to a diagnosis of Parkinson’s. She moved back to Pine City to be with her family. Louise had many friends and enjoyed her social life outside of work. She loved seeing plays, spending time with her family and friends and enjoying time at Nye’s Polonaise Room. She was an avid Minnesota Vikings and Twins fan.
Louise is survived by siblings: Butch (Karen) Chalupsky of Las Vegas, Lorraine Kozisek of Pine City, and Lawrence (Laura) Chalupsky of Beroun; nieces, nephews whom she loved like they were her own: Tim (Karen) Kozisek, Kathryn (Dale) Olson, Karen (Bryan) Stumne and Kristen (Tim) Struss, all of Pine City, Steven (Liz) Chalupsky of Falls Church, Virginia, Amy (Aaron) Perry of Baltimore, Maryland, Jill Griffin of Santa Ana, California, Nichol (Mike) Herzog of Auburn, Washington and Paige Chalupsky of Brooklyn Park; many great-nieces and nephew; many other relatives and wonderful lifelong friends.
Louise was preceded in death by her parents Louis and Lydia Chalupsky; brother-in-law Robert “Bob” Kozisek and her loving partner Charlie Kochta.
She will be dearly missed by all who loved her for her fun-loving spirit and her generosity and graciousness. You could never leave visiting her without her telling you how much she loved you and how thankful she was for the visit. Well Louise, it was always our pleasure.
Monsignor Aleksander Suchan celebrated a Memorial Mass for Louise on Wednesday, Jan. 8, 2020, at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Beroun. The interment took place in the Beroun Calvary Cemetery next to her parents.
