Joseph “Joe” Edward Mallery, age 68, of Shafer MN, passed away on July 10, 2020 after a year-long battle with cancer and a pissed off attitude towards COVID.
Joe was born on February 2, 1952 to William and Agnes Mallery in Anoka, MN. When Joe was seven-year-sold, the family moved to Shafer, where he has called home since.
He was united in marriage to Nancy Biggins on April 8, 1972. They raised their kids on the family farm in Shafer. Joe very rarely stepped away from the family farm, but when he did he was at an auction or watching his grandchildren. No one who met Joe would forget his quick wit and love for his Jerseys. Joe had a way of instilling a work ethic with his grandchildren at an early age, as they recall papa’s favorite line “ Get to the Barn ” …...
He is survived by his wife of 48 years, Nancy; daughters, Bobbie Jo (Jason) Peterson, Tina (Brad) Midtling and son, Jeff Mallery (Karla); brother, Bill (Barb) Mallery; sisters, Rose Anderson, Mary (Wayne) Johnson, Bonnie (Larry) Houger and his seven grandchildren, Kysen, MaKenzie, Eddie, Colton, Tommy, Libbie and Jerzie Jo, and many family and friends.
Joe is preceded in death by his parents and son, Jimmy.
In lieu of flowers go buy a gallon of milk ...... and drink it!!
Visitation will be held from 5 pm to 8 pm, Thursday, July 16, 2020 at Grandstrand Funeral Home in Lindstrom, MN. A private funeral service will be held for the family. Arrangements are with Grandstrand Funeral Home. Condolences may be expressed online at www.grandstrandfh.com.
