Edmund ‘Ed’ Janish, 88

Edmund “Ed” Janish, age 88, of Little Falls, passed away Friday, Dec. 7, 2012, at St. Otto’s Care Center in Little Falls.

A Mass of Christian Burial was held Tuesday, Dec. 11, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Royalton, with Fr. Laurn Virnig officiating. Interment was in the parish cemetery.

Ed was born Nov. 8, 1924, in North Prairie, to the late Henry and Anna (Popp) Janish. He married Rose Hesch June 19, 1948, at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Royalton. The couple resided in Brooklyn Park, for 30 years and raised five children. In 1987, Ed and Rose retired to their new home on the Mississippi River north of Royalton. There they enjoyed many happy years with family, relatives and friends. He was a member of the Catholic Order of the Foresters and the Royalton Sportsmen’s Club. Ed was an avid woodworker and carpenter. He enjoyed making things for his children and grandchildren, especially as gifts for Christmas. He loved to play cribbage and could beat pretty much anyone! Ed enjoyed fishing, boating on the river, trips to the casino with Rosie, visiting and spending time with his family and friends. One of his favorite summer pastimes was cheering for (and being frustrated with) the Minnesota Twins. He will truly be missed by everyone who came to know and love him.

Left to cherish his memory are his children, Jerry (Rita) Janish of Waseca, Judy Janish of Victoria, Tim (Mary) Janish of Brooklyn Park, Dan (Beth) Janish of Coon Rapids and Patty (Gary) Bona of Blaine; brother, Jerome (Alice) Janish of St. Paul; grandchildren, Coreen, Melissa, Nathan, Jacob and Hannah; great-grandchildren, Anthony, Annabelle, Micah and Jonah.

Ed was preceded in death by his parents; spouse, Rose Janish; siblings, Norbert Janish, Ludvina Broda, Leona Michalski, Idella Hesch; Delmore Janish, Claude Janish and Irene Hesch.
