Eden Prairie, MN

It is with profound sadness that we let you know that Evan Schmidt passed away unexpectedly on Saturday night, 2/17. He took his own life. Evan was an involved student at Mound Westonka High School. He enjoyed playing soccer and playing Saxophone in Westonka Bands. He was a compassionate caretaker for his classmates, bandmates, fellow soccer players (as a captain), friends, and family members. Many of our friends affectionately referred to him as "Grandpa Evan" because he was the one who would take care of everyone else. He always had a smile on his face (often under a pristine baseball cap atop his head). He was quick to help whether it was doing work around the yard, in the house, volunteering, helping with projects on boat, on the docks, and at Big Island. He and his brother Alex both volunteered for the HopeKids Day on the Lake event. He enjoyed driving boats, a snowmobile, and a truck. He kept everything immaculately clean. He loved Kaden, the family dog, and enjoyed walking him, especially with friends and their dogs. He was also often found pushing a cart around Costco with his mom so that she wouldn't have to lift the heavy items and it gave him a chance to rack up some miles behind the wheel. Like his father, Evan was very particular about his hair and where he got it cut. He found his favorite stylists at Great Clips in Shorewood MN but would also visit the Mound location. He loved vacationing with family and friends and found great pleasure in being able to go on two cruises in the past year. He enjoyed his fist job at Dakota Junction. He was looking forward to hopefully working on or around Lake Minnetonka this summer. Evan's family is grateful for the outpouring of love, support, and sympathy from friends, the community, fellow students, and the school district's leadership and faculty. Grief Counselors were on-site on Tuesday when classes resumed at MWHS. They will continue to be available to staff and students as long as needed. If you, or someone you know, needs help, you can text 998 to access the National Suicide & Crisis Hotline. Help is available! Also, please feel free to share a memory or picture honoring Evan on Instagram, Facebook, or this site. His family would love to be able to save your favorite photos and stories and for them to be available to others. Evan is survived by parents Denise and Eric Schmidt; brother Alex Schmidt; pet Dog Kaden; uncle Greg Arnold; grandparents Dewey and Shirley Arnold and Bob and Gay Schmidt; numerous other relatives; The WexPack Friends; The Motorcycle Gang; his classmates, teammates, coaches, teachers, and school staff. Memorial Service is scheduled for 2:00 PM on Sunday 2/25 at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 3745 Shoreline Drive, Navarre, MN, with visitation from 12:30 PM to 2:00 PM at church. Comfortable and casual attire is encouraged. Come as you are (this includes shorts, t-shirts, and flipflops, if you'd like)! Wearing or bringing your favorite baseball cap is highly encouraged! Reception with some of Evan's favorite sweets and treats to follow the service. There will also be a gathering at a local establishment after the reception, for those wanting to continue celebrating Evan's life and sharing stories. If you'd like to make a memorial to Evan, consider donating to Mound Westonka Band Boosters and/or Mound Westonka Hawk Vault. The funeral will be live streamed, and the link will be added when ready.

Darla Joyce Ripley Gilbertson

Eden Prairie, MN

"Darla Joyce Ripley Gilbertson passed away on February 13, 2024 after a long battle with Alzheimer\u0027s disease. Darla was born April 25, 1949 in Buffalo Center, Iowa to Richard and Joyce Ripley. She grew up on a farm west of Elmore, Minnesota, the third of four siblings. She went to the Elmore Public Schools, graduating in 1967. She graduated from the University of Minnesota in 1972. While at the U, she met the love of her life, Roger Gilbertson, and the two were married on June 23rd, 1973. Her first teaching job was in Slayton, Minnesota followed by a job at Rockford High School. Together, Darla and Roger had two sons, Jeffrey and Steven. Being a mom was truly her greatest vocation and she was the best mom a kid could ever hope for. Her love was exemplified by her daily e-mails and Sunday night phone calls once Jeff and Steve headed off to college (and beyond.) Darla served as a GED examiner for those seeking to get life back on track and was a long-time German teacher in the Hopkins School District, retiring in 2007. After retirement, she volunteered in a number of capacities, including as an ELL teacher and at the ICA Food Shelf. Darla\u0027s interests were numerous and varied, and she always sought to find joy in all she did and inspired others to do the same. She loved reading and even tried her hand at writing children\u0027s books. She loved traveling, including taking many trips to Germany both personally and professionally, leading trips with student groups. Music was a major part of her life, winning the John Philip Sousa award in high school, playing in the St. Louis Park Community Band, serving as a pianist and organist at her church, and instilling in her two sons a deep love of music. The three of them could often be found singing and playing songs around the piano. She liked staying active, going on regular walks and bike rides. She loved baking and made the best chocolate chip muffins and caramel rolls enjoyed by all. And very importantly, she was an amazing grandmother to her four grandchildren, taking them to plays at the Old Log Theatre, writing letters, and immersing herself in childhood play. Her greatest gift was her ability to love others fiercely and unconditionally, a love that was felt by her friends, family, and all that knew her. A close family member accurately summed up Darla\u0027s disposition, calling her, \u0026quot;Easily the sweetest gal I ever knew.\u0026quot; She had a way of conversing with people that helped them feel cared about and understood. She made it a point to show up for people at the right time and in the ways that mattered most. She was truly one of a kind and will be missed more than words can describe. Darla is survived by her loving husband of 50 years, Roger Gilbertson; brothers, Steve (Janice) Ripley, Roger (Gail) Ripley, Verlyn (Brenda) Ripley; sons, Jeff (Nicolle) and Steve (Jessica); and grandchildren, Amri, Eli, Gavin, and Harper. The family would like to thank the staff at Trouvaille for the exceptional care and love they showed through the last years of Darla\u0027s life. Memorials in honor of Darla can be directed to the ICA Food Shelf or BeneTrou. Inc. Details regarding a Celebration of Life to follow."

Eden Prairie, MN

Kathleen Stallard, who died on February 8, 2024, was introduced to this world 84 years ago, but we all knew and loved her as Spike. To say she embodied every single letter of her name is an understatement. Spike loved fiercely, was passionately devoted to her family and friends and had a signature spunk all her own. Spike graduated from Hamline University where she received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She also met her future husband Don at Hamline. They were married in the fall of their senior year and lived in the infamous "Quonset Huts" which were provided for married students. After graduation she worked as a nurse at St. Barnabas Hospital for six months. When the Minnesota National Guard stationed Don at the Fort Sam Houston base in San Antonio, Texas, Spike became a nurse at the Santa Rosa Hospital. Upon returning to Minnesota, Spike taught Obstetrical nursing at Ancker Hospital's School of Nursing in St. Paul for three years. She left teaching to start her own family. While Spike missed nursing, she loved working full-time as a mom raising her three children (Greg, Lisa and Jodi). Eventually, Spike would welcome four beautiful granddaughters. Meeghan, Molly, Mara and Ella were her pride and joy. Don and Spike divided their time between their home in Eden Prairie and cabin on Ten Mile Lake. They loved taking family and friends on evening boat cruises, entertaining during all holidays and taking the grandkids fishing. Not only was Spike devoted to her family, but also to her church family, Rotary and various organizations. She rarely rested and loved to be surrounded by people and activity whether it was the annual lutefisk dinner, talking about the latest book at book club or getting ready to spend time at their timeshare in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Spike was proceeded in death by parents Tony and Helen Stallard and husband Donald Sarles. She is survived by son Greg (Andrea Nyhusmoen), daughters Lisa McCay and Jodi (Frank Seigars), granddaughters, Meeghan, Molly, Mara McCay, and Ella Sarles, countless extended family and friends, and her cherished dog, Zelda. Spike's Celebration of Life will take place at 11:00am on Friday, February 23rd at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Eden Prairie. In remembrance of Spike, the family asks that any charitable donations be made to the Eden Prairie Rotary Foundation (Eden Prairie Noon Rotary PO Box 524 Chanhassen, MN 55317) or to Immanuel Lutheran Church, Eden Prairie, MN.
