Obituary for Ernest "Ernie" Satnik

Ernest "Ernie"  Satnik
Ernie Satnik was born in 1926 in Roseau County, Minnesota. He had three brothers and one sister and was a devout Catholic all his life. He grew up on a farm and learned to work hard and created family entertainment by learning the piano and accordion.

Ernie attended the Crookston, Minnesota agriculture school, continued farming and met his bride in Alberta, Canada. After some time on the farm the decision was made to move to Saint Paul, Minnesota to seek more fruitful employment. Ernie worked a variety of jobs, including fixing McCulloch chain saws. (Loved that tune! "You're in luck when you've got a McCulloch chain saw!") He ultimately decided to return to school and become a bookkeeper.

Unbeknownst to the children, the times were tough and Saint John's Catholic Church kept the family in food until Ernie got a job as a bookkeeper with the local Teamsters union. Then the good times rolled. The pressure was off, and 8 children later he was a father, just one short of a complete baseball team.

What to do? Be the full time pitcher!

He kept the family close by having them participate in many things together. It's one of those things only a large family could understand. Many of those times were Sunday afternoons when he slyly took all of the children out on adventures so Agnes could rest!

Once the children were out on their own, Ernie and Agnes moved to White Bear Lake Minnesota where they spent their retirement years, other than a brief stint in Santa Cruz, California where they took care of Ernie's aging sister.

In his 80's Ernie developed Parkinson's disease and struggled with determination against this condition; the worst part being difficulty swallowing. Thank goodness he could still eat ice cream! That always brought a smile to his face. White Bear Lake Cup n' Cone was well visited!

Ernie died peacefully under hospice care with Joanne, his eldest daughter, playing gentle music on his piano.
