James Frank “Jim” Sherack, 79, passed away on December 22, 2022 at Paramount Park Assisted Living.
Jim was born in Crookston, Minnesota to Frank and Marie (Kruse) Sherack. The family resided in Crookston, Angus, and Warren, Minnesota. In 1958 after Frank passed away, the family moved to Thief River Falls, Minnesota where Jim and his sister, Margaret helped raise his younger siblings. He graduated from Lincoln High School in 1961.
On August 8, 1964, he was united in marriage to Jane Amberg at St. Michaels Catholic Church in Mahnomen, Minnesota. Jim’s career was in banking in Minnestoa (Karlstad, Morris, Hallock, New Prague, Waconia) and Wisconsin (New Richmond).
Jim loved bowling, golf, bridge, fishing, hunting, Sudoku and was a loyal fan of the Twins and Vikings. Other favorites were coffee, popcorn and Hershey Kisses. One of his greatest gifts in life was playing Woody Puzzles with his two grandchildren and just being able to know them. He served on church finance boards, community organizations, banking associations and was a member of the Knights of Columbus.
