Obituary

Kay Satterlie, 85, of Evansville, died Thursday, June 9, 2022 at St. William’s Living Center in Parkers Prairie.  

Kay Arthur was born on March 2, 1937, in Evansville, MN, the son of Sidney Vernon and Corinne Florinda (Larson) Satterlie. He attended school in Evansville graduating in 1955.  He played basketball and football as well as participated in FFA.  He was also active in 4-H.

On September 20, 1958, he married Marion Prechel at the Salem Lutheran Church in Comfrey, Minnesota. In 1958, the couple rented the Lester Schuelke farm which they later purchased in 1963. Kay milked cows and raised steers. He farmed for many years with his father, Sidney and brother Sid Jr. Later he grain farmed with his sons until 2021. The tradition continued when a 3rd and 4th generation of Satterlies farmed the land. Kay was chosen as Conservation Farmer of the Year in 1989.  He was a lifelong resident of Evansville Township.

Kay was an avid outdoorsman enjoying many trips fishing and hunting geese in Canada and South Dakota pheasant hunting. He also cherished his time in the woods trapping and cutting wood. He served on the Evansville Township Board and was a member of Faith Lutheran Church where he served on the church board.

Blessed be the memory of Kay Arthur Satterlie.

He was preceded in death by his brother, Sid Satterlie Jr in 1991; son-in-law, Charles Martin in 2005 and great grandsons, Payton and Leighton Thoennes in 2017.
