Stan Antonson's Celebration of Life to be held when it is safe

Stanley Dale Antonson, 85, of Eyota, passed away Dec. 5, 2020 from COVID-19 at Cottagewood Senior Communities, Rochester, where he had resided since August.
Stanley was born Oct. 17, 1935 in Quincy Township, Olmsted County, to Herman and Gladys (Dawson) Antonson. He attended St. Charles High School.
Stanley married Arlene Edwards in 1954, and they resided in Rochester. Arlene passed away in 1996.
On Feb. 14, 1997, he married Janet (Raddatz) Mahon at Oak Hills Wesleyan Church in Rochester. In 1998 Stan and Jan moved to the Branson, Missouri area where they lived until moving to Stewartville in 2008 and then to Eyota in 2018. Stan was employed at the Mayo Clinic for 40 years, retiring in 1994. Stanley was a member of Faith United Methodist Church in Eyota and had been a longtime member of the Elks in Rochester and Missouri. Stan was a very sweet man, and his humor and wit kept all those around him smiling. He will be greatly missed.
He is survived by his wife, Janet, of Eyota; daughter, Melinda Antonson of Eyota; stepchildren, Jill (Gary) Johnson of St. Paul, Trina Urban of Stewartville and Jay (Dawn) Mahon of Duluth; 11 grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; one sister, LaVonne Christie of Chatfield; and several nieces and nephews.
Stan was preceded in death by his parents; brother, David Antonson; daughter, Wanda Harvey; son-in-law, David Harvey; and infant granddaughter, Zara Harvey.
A special thank you to the staff at Cottagewood for the excellent care they provided Stanley, and to the Mayo Clinic staff, especially Joy Stevens, who took such good care of him.
A celebration of Stan's life will be held when it is safe. Burial will take place at Grandview Memorial Gardens in Rochester. Memorials are preferred to the Alzheimer's Association.
Schad & Zabel Funeral Home in Eyota is assisting the family with arrangements.
