Throughout the years he enjoyed many activities, including running marathons (twice in the Boston, as well as the first City of Lakes marathon). He has been the consummate fisherman (there’s always a bigger boat), bagpiper (Brian Boru Irish pipe band), woodworker, reader, and so much more. With the progression of macular degeneration and Alzheimer’s he slowly gave up these activities in recent years, but he still enjoyed time at his cabin in Nevis (since 1975) and his home in Port Charlotte, FL (since 2005). Memorials are preferred to one’s charity of choice. Special thanks to Ecumen Hospice, Havenwood Memory Care, and HCMC who cared so lovingly for Jerry. A celebration of Jerry’s life is pending.

Theodore Wilson

Minneapolis, MN

Theodore (Ted) Wilson died at home on February 21, 2024. He was born in Elgin, Illinois in 1935. In high school, he earned straight A’s which led him to receive a scholarship to attend Cornell University. Both his Bachelors in Engineering Physics and his Ph.D. is Aeronautical Engineering were taken at Cornell. He enjoyed being a member of the Beta Theta Pi Fraternity. Ted was a member of the ROTC in college and completed his service at the Jet Propulsion Lab in Pasadena, CA from 1962-1964. He was offered a job at CalTech, but he wanted to return to the Midwest. Ted joined the Department of Aerospace Engineering and Mechanics at the University of Minnesota in 1964 and remained a valuable teacher and researcher for 38 years. As a Professor, he taught courses in all three subfields in the department, both laboratory and lecture courses, and courses at all levels, from sophomore mechanics to courses at the graduate level. He advised 15 students to the Ph.D, all of whom went on to successful careers. The students awarded him the Outstanding Instructor Award in 1990. He also served the department as Director of Graduate Studies and as Associate Head and served the national scientific community as a member of the Respiratory and Applied Physiology Study Section of the National Institutes of Health. Ted was one of the earlier workers in Biomedical Engineering, and for most of his career his research focused on respiratory physiology. He collaborated with physiologists, many at the Mayo Clinic, in developing mathematical models for the mechanics of respiration. This work contributed to understanding the relationship between micro- and macro-mechanics of the lung. His tenure included sabbaticals at Universities in Oslo, Berne, Boston, Houston, Brussels, and Naples where he made lifelong friends. He was the author of more than 100 research papers and became an authority in his primary field, respiratory mechanics, which resulted in his book, Respiratory Mechanics, in 2016. Besides doing meaningful work, Ted enjoyed life. He played baseball (catcher) in high school and college, and enjoyed going to Twins and Saints games with his family, as well as coaching his son’s baseball team. He loved all things Italian, which resulted in taking many trips there, cooking Italian food, and driving a Vespa around Minneapolis for many years. He loved music, especially Bach and Hayden, and played the piano and harpsichord. He loved croissants, chocolate, puzzles, math, eating outside, reading, Lake Superior, camping, cakes, wine, roses, gardening, and making jam. Most of all, he loved sharing all of this with his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. He is survived by his four children, Rosalind Elstrom, Alexander Wilson (Jeanne Finley), Margaret Wilson (Joseph Gray), and Emily Hall (Tucker Hall); grandchildren, Katrina, Ben, Dan, Thea, Zane, August, Annalee, Clara, Naomi, and June; great grandchildren, Anna and Kloe; and niece Laura Wilson (Tom). He is buried at Oak Hill Cemetery in Minneapolis, MN. A memorial service will be held at a later date.

location-icon

Minneapolis, MN

"Ruth Hagestuen started her nursing career as an Air Force nurse during the Vietnam War after which she lived and worked for 13 years as a nurse and collaborator in developing health care programs in Madagascar and Bangladesh. Her Madagascar experience included an opportunity to work with a team of Malagasy midwives in conceptualization and delivery of a program providing health services and education for mothers with children under the age of five. This program, developed through dialogue with villagers in Madagascar, expanded to become national in scope. In Bangladesh, she was a consultant for nursing administration and nursing education at the International Center for Diarrheal Research to raise the level and quality of care offered through the Dhaka based hospital. After returning to the US, Ruth completed her Masters in Theology. Two years later, she accepted the position as nurse coordinator and then program manager of the multidisciplinary team in the Parkinson\u0027s clinic at Methodist Hospital. As this expanded to become the Struthers Parkinson\u0027s Center, Ruth became its Program Director. Because of her passion to meet the needs of many people whose lives were affected by Parkinson\u0027s disease, Ruth joined the staff of the National Parkinson Foundation in June of 2000 as National Program Director. As director, she implemented the development of Centers of Excellence using Struthers as a model. She designed a program called Allied Team Training for Parkinson\u0027s to educate health care professionals in interdisciplinary care. And she facilitated outreach to underserved communities to provide state of the art, culturally competent, interdisciplinary care in Parkinson\u0027s disease both nationally and internationally. As a speaker and writer regarding care and support of persons with Parkinson\u0027s, Ruth co-authored a book entitled Health Connect, a Practical Guide to Community Outreach. In retirement, Ruth tapped into her wild side and joined the senior rock performance group called Alive and Kickin\u0027. Performing on stage with raucous, beloved friends gave her profound joy. Calmer days found her wrapped in her love of nature. And just beginning to dabble in rosemaling, she said it could wait to be perfected in heaven! Ruth\u0027s wife Bonnie, her children Nathan (Christy) and Michele, and grandchildren Rowan and Elizabeth deeply mourn her loss while celebrating a life well lived. A Celebration of Life will be held at St. John\u0027s Episcopal Church, 4201 Sheridan Ave. S., Minneapolis, MN, Saturday March 9 at 1:00 p.m. with a reception following. In honor of Ruth, memorials are graciously accepted for Grace Hospice, Struthers Parkinson\u0027s Center, or Alive and Kickin\u0027. Washburn-McReavy.com Edina Chapel 952-920-3996"
