Gerald "Jerry" Tschida

April 14, 1947 — January 11, 2018

Gerald "Jerry" Tschida of Pine City passed away Thursday, January 11, 2018 at the University of Minnesota Fairview Hospital in Minneapolis at the age of 70.

Gerald Eugene Tschida was born to Gene and Dorothy Tschida on April 14, 1947 in St. Paul, Minnesota and raised in Roseville.  He graduated from Ramsey High School in June 1965 and started working for Chandler Wilbert Vault Company the following Monday.  He retired after 43 years in 2008.

As a young man Jerry enjoyed playing softball (summers) and bowling (winters).  He had season tickets to the Minnesota North Stars, Minnesota Vikings, and Saint Paul Saints for many years and enjoyed watching all sports.

Jerry and Jane moved to Pine City in October 2007.  They joined Our Redeemer Lutheran Church where they made many friendships.  Jerry enjoyed the men’s Bible breakfast and volunteering with the guys as long as his health allowed.  Jerry battled lung disease his entire adult life which gradually diminished his ability to be involved in the community.

His greatest joy has been his three children and two grandchildren.  Jerry had bad lungs but a strong, caring heart!

Jerry is survived by his loving wife Jane Tschida of Pine City; daughter Jennifer (Jon) Hobbs of Bloomington; sons Jeff Tschida of Maplewood and Jim (Christine) Tschida of Shoreview; grandchildren Victoria and Andrew Hobbs; parents Gene and Dorothy Tschida of Roseville; siblings: Diane (Mike) Newman of Rosemount, Pam Tschida of White Bear Lake, Rick (Sandy) Tschida of Oakdale, David (Janet) Tschida of White Bear Lake and MaDonna (Troy) Kauma of Plymouth; many nieces, nephews and friends.

Reverend Fred Hanson will officiate funeral services for Jerry:  11:00 AM Wednesday (1/17) at Our Redeemer Lutheran Church in Pine City.  A time for family and friends to gather for visitation and reviewal is planned for Tuesday evening 5-8 PM at the Swanson Chapel and also 1 hour prior to the service at the church.  The interment will take place at Roselawn Cemetery in Roseville on Wednesday at 2:00 PM.
