Obituary for Leon Thooft

Leon Camillus Thooft was born June 22, 1923 to Camielle and Maria (Lamote) Thooft in Lincoln County near Tyler, Minnesota. He grew up on the family farm and became a farmer himself. On June 19, 1962 Leon married Lucy Balster at St. Columba Catholic Church in Iona, Minnesota. The couple was blessed with 48 years of life together. They farmed near Tyler and then moved into town in 1965. Following a decline in health, they became residents at Sunrise Manor Nursing Home in Tyler. Lucy died December 21, 2010. Leon died on Thursday, October 13, 2016 at Avera Sunrise Manor Nursing Home at the age of 93.

Leon was a member of St. Dionysius Catholic Church. He enjoyed his life work of farming, as well as playing cards, playing ball with the family, and the outings taken by residents at the nursing home.

Leon is lovingly remembered by a brother, Ernest E. Thooft of Tyler, Minnesota, many nieces and nephews, and other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his wife, Lucy; his parents; his sister, Julia Labat; and a brother, Andrew Thooft.

Blessed be his memory.
