John Mahalitc Sr., 85. of Eagle Lake, passed away Sunday, November 18, 1990 at 5:15 p.m. at the Eagle Lake Community Hospital following a lengthy illness. Born, June 24, 1905 in Columbus, to Joe and Veronica Jasek Mahalitc, he grew up in Columbus and attended local schools. On April 5, 1931, he and Hattie Buxkemper were united in marriage from the St Peter and Paul Catholic Church of Frelsburg. On January 1, 1940, they moved to Eagle Lake where Mr. Mahalitc continued his long and distinguished career in farming and ranching until retirement in 1980. He was a faithful member of the Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church of Eagle Lake and the Eagle Lake Knights of Columbus. He was preceded in death by his parents, a sister, five brothers and a grandson, Russell Mahalitc. Survivors include his devoted wife of 59 years, Mrs. Hattie Buxkemper Mahalitc of Eagle Lake; sons and daughters in law, John Jr. and June Mahalitc, Kenneth and Jo Ann Mahalitc, all of Eagle Lake; sisters, Mrs. Mary Sommerlatte, Columbus and Mrs. Minnie Balcer of Weimar; grandchildren, Clayton Bradley Mahalitc, DeRidder, Louisiana; Ronald D. Foster, Webster; Lisa Hoffman, Nada; Lori Faldyn, Sealy; Lana Stein, Eagle Lake; 11 great grandchildren and a host of nieces, nephews, and other relatives and loved ones. A Parish Rosary was held at 7 p.m. Monday, November 19, led by Rev. Jesse Euresti followed by a Knights of Columbus Rosary at 7:30 p.m. led by Council #4843, Knights of Columbus, Eagle Lake. Funeral services were held at 3 p.m. Tuesday, November 20, from Our Lady of Perpetual Help Catholic Church of Eagle Lake with Rev. Jesse Euresti and Rev. Tom Hanus officiating. Interment followed in the Lakeside Cemetery in Eagle Lake. Pallbearers scheduled were Allen George Mahalitc, Clayton Mahalitc, Mark Faldyn, Thierry Hoffman, Jim McCartney, Wilbert Bankston, Johnny Prazak and Weldon Buxkemper. Mr. Mahalitc's dedication to his family, his church and his community will long be missed. A good, hard-working man who was always willing to help any one or any organization when called upon. He was a man who, due to illness, had to live with a lot of pain and frustration the last 10 years of his life. But through it all, he kept his wit, his faith and never gave up the fight. Sympathy is extended to the family in their loss
