Elisio Bartolus, 93, of Chisholm, MN, died Sunday, September 30, 2018, at Diamond Willow Assisted Living in Grand Rapids, MN. He was born to Frank and Marguerite (Toti) Bartolus in Eveleth, MN, on November 10, 1924, and grew up with his eight brothers and sisters before joining the United States Navy at the age of 17, where he served as a gunners mate in World War II and completed six years of service.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Mary “Geta” Amato in 1996. They were married on May 28, 1949, and he remained a resident of Chisholm since that time. Elisio worked for Barrett Drilling, Mesaba Service and Supply, and St. Louis County Road and Bridge. He was a member and Commander of the VFW Post 8510, and also a member of American Legion Post 247, Chisholm Sportsmen’s Club, and the Knights of Columbus. Elisio was an avid curler and member of the Chisholm Curling Club, its Ice Crew, and curled in the 2017-18 season. Carpentry was his passion.

He is survived by his second wife, Shirley (Bussey/Kordish) Bartolus; daughters, Nancy (Joe) Sertich and Debbie (Mike) Toldo; grandchildren, Tony (Tallie) Sertich, Manda Sertich (Malvin Moore), Jessalyn (Jared) Sabin, and Emmalee Toldo; step children, Kathy Kordish, Mary Beth (Dale) Henningsen, Cindy (Dave) Rice, and Sue (Randy) Lehna; three great-grandchildren; eight step grandchildren; four step great-grandchildren; sister, Marge (Norman) Olson; sisters-in-law, Florence Kotonias and Ardyce Bartolus; and numerous nieces and nephews.
