Annie L. (Galatz) Peroceski
October 20, 1941 — November 24, 2020
Annie L. Peroceski, 79, of Kelly Lake, MN, passed away Tuesday, November 24,
2020. Annie passed peacefully, surrounded by loved ones as she joined the love of her
life, Bob, in heaven. Annie will always be remembered as a loving and gracious wife,
mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, and beloved friend to many.
Annie was born on Oct. 20, 1941, in Hibbing, Minn. to Louie and Marie (Swanson)
Galatz. She was the twelfth of thirteen children.
In 1959, she married the love of her life, Robert “Bob” Peroceski. Bob and Annie
celebrated a loving 60 years of marriage. Annie’s greatest joys in life were spending
time with her husband and their large family.
She loved playing catch with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren,
cooking Saramas, Potica and Bakala for the holidays, she enjoyed bowling with her
siblings and in-laws, and playing cards. Many will remember Annie smiling and ending
nearly every game with “I win.” Her competitive nature was equally endearing as it was
annoying, especially for family members that shared that same competitive nature.
Above all, Annie was most known for her unconditional love and acceptance. She had a
way of making everyone around her feel like family. She was “Ma, Auntie and Grandma”
to far more than just her biological family.
Annie is survived by her loving children: Robert (Joann) of Kelly Lake, Timothy of Kelly
Lake, Kelli (David) of Plymouth, Minn., Bonnie (James) of Minneapolis, Minn., Brenda
(Chad) of Sauk Rapids, Minn., Samuel (Connie) of St. Cloud, Minn., James (Christina)
of Hibbing; 21 grandchildren; 32 great-grandchildren.
Her siblings, Samuel (Carol) Galatz of Hibbing Minn., Bonnie Dilley of Hibbing, Minn.,
Donna Thellin of Hibbing, Minn., Eva (Al) Bement of Boise, Id, Sister-in-law Carol Galatz
of Hibbing, Minn., Mary Ellen (Bill) Suhonen of Hibbing, Minn., plus a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and other beloved family and
friends that were welcomed into the family.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband Bob Peroceski, her parents, Louie
and Marie Galatz; brothers, William, George, Vernon and Charles Galatz; and sister,
Bobbie Jones, Rosey Peasley.
A Memorial service will be held on a future date yet to be announced.
