Russell L. Mulholland
September 20, 1934 ~ January 10, 2024 (age 89) 89 Years Old
Russell “Russ” Mulholland, 89, of Spring Valley, MN, died on Wednesday, January 10, 2024 at Seasons Hospice House in Rochester, MN.
Russell Lloyd Mulholland was born on September 20, 1934 to Lloyd and Mildred (Lewis) Mulholland. After Lloyd passed away when Russell was young, Mildred remarried Russ Kessler, who was a wonderful step-father to Russell. Russ served in the US Army and was proud of his military service. Russ married Kathleen Stanek at The Cathedral of the Sacred Heart in Winona, MN on July 10, 1954 and together they raised three children; Stephen, Scott, and Tracy.
Russ and Kathleen not only raised a family together, but they worked together as well. They ran a Sears catalog store and also ran R&K Antiques & Jewelry in Spring Valley. Russ sold and collected antiques, Ertl toys and many other unique and beautiful treasures. He had a hard time passing up a good auction because you never know what you could get in a box for just $1! Russ also worked at Amoco Oil as a dispatcher. Additionally, Russ enjoyed serving his community. He served as the Treasurer and Commander for the Spring Valley American Legion and as the Treasurer for the Knights of Columbus. He was also an usher, Trustee, and ran Bingo at St. Ignatius Catholic Church where he and Kathleen were members. In his free time, Russ enjoyed gardening and talking to anybody who would lend an ear.
Russ is survived by his wife Kathleen Mulholland of Spring Valley, children Scott Mulholland (Stephanie Derby) of Spring Valley and Tracy (Tim) Bly of LeRoy, MN, daughter-in-law Sue Mulholland of Duluth, MN, half-brother Ryan Kessler of Glenwood, MN, grandchildren Sarah (Josh) Perry, Michael (Amber) Mulholland, Nicholas Bly Laguna (Aleks) and Lindsay (Cassidy) Milks.
He was preceded in death by his mother and father Lloyd and Mildred, step-father Russ, son Steve and daughter-in-law Dorothy Mulholland.
Memorial Mass for Russ will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, January 18, 2024 at St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Spring Valley with Father Russell Scepaniak officiating. Burial will take place at a later date at St. Ignatius Cemetery. The Knights of Columbus will lead the Rosary at 5:15 p.m. on Wednesday, January 17th at St. Ignatius. Visitation will be held from 6-8 p.m. at the church following the Rosary and will continue from 10-11 a.m. Thursday morning.
If you would like to share a gift in Russ’s memory, the family is suggesting memorials might also be sent to Seasons Hospice at 1696 Greenview Drive SW, Rochester, MN 55902 or to the American Legion Post #0068.
