Ross was hospitalised in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, for a couple weeks after becoming unwell unexpectedly and developing additional health issues. At the Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, SD, on July 12, 2022 he went to join his parents.
Clarence and Leona (Roles) Eischens had Curtis Clarence Eischens on July 3, 1952 in Clarkfield. He was raised in St. Leo and went to school at St. Leo Catholic. At Minneota High School, he competed in sports like wrestling, baseball, and track as well as FFA.
He graduated in 1970. Later on, he attended the Canby Vocational Technical School for Ag-related Business in Canby, Oregon.
He married Wendy Merritt at St. Leo on December 2, 1972. The couple farmed and reared a family up north of Minneota, Minnesota. Curt had a deep and abiding love for farming and agriculture.
It wasn’t a surprise to anyone who knew him that he was always looking ahead. In addition, he was a pillar of the community. In Canby, he was elected to the board of the Farmers Co-op Association.
He went on to be elected to the Cenex Board of Directors, where he served for 27 years in a leadership role. When Cenex combined with Harvest States to establish CHS, he was a part of the organisation. CHS is the largest Farmer’s Cooperative in the United States.
In addition, he was very active in the Minnesota Democratic Party, the Farmer’s Union, the Ralph Morris Foundation, and the Cooperative Network. FFA, the St. Leo Lions Club and various other local boards were also among Curt’s interests.
He was also a big fan of the Minnesota Twins and antique tractors.The long and valiant battle Curt waged against cancer is a source of encouragement for others.
Curt passed away on Sunday, July 3, 2022, at his home in Minneota, despite a protracted illness. Sons Ross Eischen of Minneota and Wade Eischens of Hendricks survive him, as do daughters Stefanie Eischens of LeSueur and Laura Bjorgo of Woodbury;

He was the Vikings’ “Voice of the Vikings” and admitted to rehearsing his announcing in the many hours he spent working on his farm machinery.
“Welcomed” football fans for 24 seasons, while also providing public address for high school wrestling and the Minneota Mudhens for many years until retiring.
A number of years ago, he served as Master of Ceremonies at the coronation of the Boxelder Bug Days queen under his belt.
When it came to volunteering or assisting others, Eischens didn’t say “no” to anything.Since I grew up in the city, Ross was always eager to explain the complexities of farming to me whenever I had a question about planting or harvesting.
A few years ago, Ross requested that I not drive all the way from my house in Willmar to snap photos of farmers planting for an article. Instead, he climbed into the cab of his tractor and snapped a picture of me from the back of the vehicle. I’m pleased with the results.
Just nine days after his father Curt Eischens died, Ross Eischens, at 42, also took his own life. On Page 5, you’ll find obituaries.
While working for the West Central Tribune in Willmar several years ago, I wrote in this column about an incident that occurred.
To my surprise, I received a phone call from an elderly woman claiming to know me and praising my love of solving riddles. Her voice was unfamiliar to me, and I was unable to discover her identity.
A few miles north of town, she gave me a list of things to search for at an abandoned country church that she said would be worth my time if I could figure them out. I assumed it was a joke, but I went to the church anyhow to see what was going on.

A medical examiner at the Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, pronounced him dead on July 12 of that year.
When a deceased person is laid to rest according to Christian traditions, it is known as a Christian burial, and it is usually performed on holy ground. The concept of the resurrection of the dead was a major issue for Christians prior to modern times, and they preferred to bury their loved ones in the ground.
Despite the fact that Eastern Orthodox churches still condemn cremation, Protestants and Catholics no longer oppose it in the same way.
The Greeks and Romans both used burial and cremation as methods of final disposition, but by the time Christianity emerged during the Principate, Roman funerary rituals favoured cremation over burial.
Although the Jewish people buried their deceased, they never buried anyone else. In the Torah, God himself is shown performing burial:
“Then buried him across the road from Beth Peor, in a dip in the territory of Moab. Even now, no one knows where he was interred.”
It is mentioned in Deuteronomy 34:6. As seen by the witness of Tertullian and the emphasis placed on the similarity between the resurrection of the body and the resurrection of Christ, early Christians employed only burial.
In light of the belief in the resurrection of the body and Jewish tradition,the burial of Christian dead has traditionally been considered a sacred act. There is always some sort of religious ceremony going on around it.
Little is known with regard to the burial of the deceased in the early Christian ages. Early Christians did employ the usage of an ossuary to store the skeletal remains of those saints at rest in Christ.
This custom is thought to have originated among the Jews of the Second Temple period. As long as they were not directly worshipping idols, other early Christians probably adopted the national practises of the people with whom they lived.
As an early Christian custom, St. Jerome describes the procession of St. Paul the Hermit’s corpse to the grave as hymns and psalms are being sung.
