Please join us in celebrating the life of AUSTIN JEREMIAH MALLINGER who passed away July 26, 2020. He experienced a long and wonderful life and touched the hearts of everyone he met. He was preceded in death by his parents, Michael and Margaret Mallinger, and his six siblings: Eileen Callahan, Tom Mallinger, Margaret Condon, Steve Mallinger, Sr. Mary St. Stepen, and Lorayne O’Leary.

He is survived by his wife of 72 years Margaret Sullivan Mallinger, St. Paul, MN; three daughters, Jane (Kurt Williamson) Williamson, St. Paul, MN, Nancy (Jeff Engberg) Mallinger, Big Lake, MN, Mary (Kirk Ankerstjerne) Ankerstjerne, St. Paul, MN; and Dan Mallinger (Marina) Windemere, FL.

Austin was born and raised in Webster County and met his beloved wife through family members. He started his life farming and then moved on to the transportation industry where he spent the majority of his life. Austin was best known for his kind and gentle attitude. He was willing to experience new things: including having a home at Twin Lakes, without knowing how to swim, traveling to China and Ireland with his family and being involved in the lives of his children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.

The services celebrating his life will be limited to close family members due to present Covid-19 circumstances. If so inclined, please make donations to the Scholarship Fund at St. Edmond High School. The funeral will be live streamed via Laufersweiler-Sievers Funeral Home Facebook Page, Thursday, July 30, 2020 at 11:00 a.m.
