Maurice "Michael" Cotter

1931-2017

April 13, 1931 - July 31, 2017

“My name is Michael Cotter. I am a third generation farmer from Austin, Minnesota where the land is flat and the soil is black. Many of those farms have been in the same families for a hundred years, and ours is one of those farms.” Excerpt from The Killdeer by Michael Cotter.

Michael Cotter died on July 31 at his home in Albert Lea.

Maurice Michael Cotter was born on the family farm just west of Austin on April 13, 1931. He was the son of Richard and Rose Cotter, youngest of a family of eight children, six sisters and one brother. He was a graduate of Pacelli High School.

In 1957 he married Genevieve Ward and they were blessed with six children, and they later divoroced. In 2006 he married Beverly Jackson and moved to Albert Lea. The farm where he was born is now run by his youngest son, Tom, who is continuing the same healthy farming practices that Michael believed in. In 2016, the family won the Mower County Conservationist of the Year award. Michael spent his entire life nurturing the land and the animals, respecting and protecting his heritage.

In the 1850s, his pipe smoking great-grandmother brought her family to America from Ireland’s potato famine, and in 1875 his grandfather broke the Southern Minnesota prairie sod with a team of oxen. Michael began sharing this legacy when, at 50 years of age, he was introduced to storytelling. His stories of the farm, his strict Irish Catholic upbringing, the hoboes who worked there during the Depression, the animals and their personalities, his Irish sense of humor, and his love and respect for the natural world carried him across the U.S. to festivals, schools, conventions, reunions, workshops, the Smithsonian Folk Festival, and the Jonesborough, Tennessee International Storytelling Festival.

For twenty-two years he served as artistic director of the Minnesota Storytelling Festival held annually in Austin, and for thirteen years he hosted “Remember When” on KAUS Austin radio and for three years the Michael Cotter Show on WHO Des Moines. He is the recipient of the Circle of Excellence Storyteller award presented by the National Storytelling Network. His legacy and stories will continue on through his voice and words on cassette tapes and CDs and in his books.

He is survived by his wife Beverly, his daughter Michele Cotter of Apache Junction, Arizona, daughter Catherine (Bob) Ormberg of Anchorage, Alaska, daughter Mary Cotter of Chapel Hill, North Carolina, son Marty (Jolene) of Northwood, Iowa, Son Tom (Alma) of Austin, Minnesota, daughter Rose (Pete) Lyford of Wasilla, Alaska, grandchildren Colleen, Martin and Sean Ormberg, Jordan, Brady, Tegan Cotter, Ray, Priscilla (Gilberto), Brandon, Vanessa, Iris Cotter, Laura Lyford, great-grandchildren Julian and Romeo, stepchildren Toni (Scott) Lorenz, Scott (Jeannie) Jackson, Ken (Judy) Jackson, Rick (Alice) Jackson and several step grand and great-grandchildren, Sister Teresa of Cleveland, Ohio and numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, sisters Dorothy (Chet) Langowski, Jean (Gus) Manthy, Cecelia (Bruce) Longtin, Sister Audrian, Sister Estelle, brother Richard Cotter, and nephews Richard Cotter and Stacy Cotter.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, August7 , 2017 at St. Edward's Catholic Church.

Darrell Lee Erickson

1937-2017

Darrell Lee Erickson, 80, a longtime Austin, Minnesota, teacher, died Wednesday, August 2, 2017, in Billings, Montana.

He was born, as he liked to say, “29 March, 1937.” He was born in Chicago, Illinois, and adopted as an infant by Lee and Gertrude Erickson. The family moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota, while Darrell was still a baby. Several years later his sister, Rita, was adopted and the family was complete. Darrell went to Catholic school through eighth grade and graduated from Washburn High School in 1955.

After high school, Darrell enlisted in the Marine Corps. He served as an aircraft mechanic and was honorably discharged in 1958. Upon returning to Minnesota, he used his GI Bill to get his elementary teaching degree at the University of Minnesota. He taught one year in White Bear Lake, Minnesota, then came to Austin Public Schools in 1965 and taught there until his retirement in 1997. Darrell was a fourth, fifth and sixth grade and Chapter 1 teacher. He taught at Woodson, Sumner, Webster, Neveln, Banfield and Ellis schools. Darrell continued his education at Minnesota State-Mankato and graduated with a master’s degree, plus sixth year.

During his tenure in Austin, Darrell coached girl’s volleyball, girl’s basketball, and track and field. He was a season ticket holder to Gopher women’s basketball and volleyball. Darrell was also an enthusiastic Austin Packers fan. No matter the weather, he would never miss a game.

There will never be another unique man quite like Darrell. He was truly a renaissance man. He enjoyed being with any group of people anywhere in the world. Darrell loved to travel. Every summer he traveled somewhere in the United States or the world. In 1976 he biked across the United States from coast to coast to celebrate the bicentennial. He visited every continent, took many river cruises, and made it almost to the base camp of Mt. Everest.

Darrell never went anywhere without his camera. He photographed many beautiful scenery photos and was the family photographer. At one family wedding, his were the only photographs that recorded the wedding as the hired photographer’s pictures never turned out.

The Austin YMCA was his second home. He was a lifeguard and lifeguard instructor. Darrell could be found at the Y several times a day and made many friends there. He also spent many hours as a Red Cross Volunteer and instructor.

In June 2014, he made the decision to move to Billings, to be with his cousin, Judy Frank, and her husband, Warren. His memory was starting to fade and he needed someone to care for him. Darrell moved into Mission Ridge Independent Living and was there for eight months. His Alzheimer’s disease became more aggressive and he moved into a secure memory cottage where he lived until his passing.

Darrell was preceded in death by both parents and his sister. His cousin, Judy Frank and her family survive him. He also leaves behind many cousins and friends that were his family, in Minnesota and around the country.

A memorial service will be held 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 17, 2017, at Mayer Funeral Home with Father Raul Silva officiating. Friends may call one hour before the service at Mayer Funeral Home on Thursday.
