Obituary for Clifford O'Toole

CLIFFORD O’TOOLE was born September 23, 1926 to Clyde and Alice (Kingsborough) O’Toole in their farm home in Drammen Township near Lake Benton, Minnesota. He was baptized at St. Genevieve’s Catholic Church in Lake Benton. He moved with his family to the Russell, Minnesota area, and in 1940 moved to the farmstead east of Tyler, Minnesota, which became his home for over 50 years. He attended Tyler High School. On November 10, 1953 Clifford married Betty Lou Ortmann at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Remsen, Iowa. Their union was blessed with two children and 64 years of life together. The couple made their home on the O’Toole family farm, where they raised crops and livestock until retiring in 1992 and moving into Tyler. On Sunday, July 29, 2018 Clifford passed away peacefully at the Avera Sunrise Manor in Tyler at the age of 91 years, 10 months, and six days.

Clifford was a member of St. Dionysius Catholic Church in Tyler, and a member of the Knights of Columbus. He loved all things farm-related, and enjoyed polka music and playing cards.

Clifford is lovingly remembered by his wife, Betty; their children, Linda (Larry) Dolan of Sartell, Minnesota, and Patrick (Brenda) O’Toole of Tyler, Minnesota; four grandchildren, Sean (Lisa) Dolan, Sr. Maria Laudem Gloriae Dolan, SOLT, Kyle O’Toole, and Ryan(Lyndsay) O’Toole; three great-grandchildren, Patrick, Annabelle and Jack Dolan; two sisters, Arlene Maertens of Marshall, Minnesota, and Loretta (Francis) Haper of Sioux Falls, South Dakota and many other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister Doris Lewandowski.
