OBITUARY-
Raymond Winfield Finkelson, age 82, of Starbuck, Minn., formerly of Austin, passed away on Feb. 1, 2006, in Glenwood, Minn.

Raymond was born in Adams, Minn., on June 4, 1923. One of 10 children, he grew up and worked in rural Adams and married Florian Wagner on June 24, 1943. His work life was devoted to the grocery business in Adams and Austin, Minn. He loved woodworking and gardening and made quite a number of handcrafted pieces for family and friends. He retired in 1985 and traveled with his wife to Kentucky and on to Texas, always staying close to his grandchildren. Raymond was active in the Knights of Columbus in Austin and spent a lot of his time on the golf course with his wife and friends. Raymond and Florian moved back to Minnesota from their travels in 1990 and lived in Austin until June of 2005 when they moved to Starbuck, Minn., to be closer to their daughter and her husband. Ray will be missed by all of the people he touched throughout his life. He was always a friend and good listener and never turned down a cup of coffee and something sweet.

Raymond is survived by his wife, Florian; daughter, Sharon (Tom) Olejnicak, of Glenwood, Minn.; a brother, Harvey (Barbara) Finkelson, of Jackson, Wyo.; and many nieces and nephews. Ray and Florian had four grandchildren: Darcy Ritchie, of Waconia, Minn.; Teresa (Alex) Cimochowski, of Eagan, Minn.; Pamela (David) Chenvert, of Rosemount, Minn.; and Marc Olejnicak, of San Antonio, Texas; and nine great-grandchildren.
