James R. Olin

For about 40 years, veterinarian James R. Olin worked wonders with pets in St. Paul.

He could talk to animals and make them feel better, said Dr. Sam Hunter, a heart surgeon who became friends with Olin after the vet began taking care of his German shepherd in the 1960s. "There was a magic about him."

Olin, a decorated veteran and longtime Mendota Heights resident, died April 15 of natural causes. He was 80.

He was training to become an engineer as a young Army recruit during World War II but he knew he wanted to work with animals, said his wife, Marilyn Olin. So, at the end of the war, he headed back to Kansas to study veterinary medicine.

He rejoined the U.S. Army as a member of the Veterinary Corps at Fort Snelling in 1950, the year he completed his veterinary studies. He quit the service in 1953 to work with Arnold Feist, then one of only a few St. Paul veterinarians. A year later he bought Feistís hospital.

His specialty was small animals, but he treated all kinds of sick animals, including a tiger from the Como Zoo, his wife said.

Earlier in his career, Olin treated dogs and cats that were hit by cars and became an expert in fixing broken bones, she said, adding that he was always on call.

"He was tall and big, yet so gentle," and he felt for both the animals and the owners, she said. He would put his arm around grieving pet owners and console them about their injured or dead pet.

His other interest was community service, Hunter said. Olin was involved with the St. Paul Rotary Club, the Salvation Army Advisory Board and the Humane Society for Companion Animals. He donated time to perform surgeries on small animals for the group until he had a stroke in 1994, his wife said.

Olin loved talking about his years in the Army and "would tell a good story," Hunter said.

In addition to his wife of 54 years, survivors include his son David of Mendota Heights and two granddaughters.

Services were held in St. Paul, Minn.

This obituary was reprinted from the St. Paul Pioneer Press at the request of friends.

William E. Farrell

William E. Farrell ("Bill") died May 12, 2006, after a brave nine month battle with lung cancer.

He was born July 31, 1940 in Chicago, Ill, son of William and Loretta Farrell. He graduated from St. Ignatius College Prep in 1957; he married Karen Lee Goodfellow in 1960. He received his bachelor's degree from Loyola University in Chicago and Juris Doctorate in Law from the University of Arizona.

Bill built a reputation as one of the premier municipal attorneys in the state of Arizona. He served as town attorney or legal consultant for several municipalities over the years, including Yuma, Glendale, Scottsdale, Litchfield Park, Paradise Valley, Apache Junction, Chino Valley, Fountain Hills, Queen Creek and Cave Creek.

For the past five years, Bill worked for the law firm of Mariscal Weeks McIntyre & Friedlander. His accomplishments include crafting state legislation, incorporating towns and arguing hillside development regulations before the U.S. Supreme Court in the Corrigan case.

He was very proud of his work in persuading the PGA to move the Phoenix Open to Scottsdale which included the acquisition and development of the Princess Hotel and the Tournament Players Club for Scottsdale.

Personally, he influenced hundreds of young men by serving the community as a baseball coach for more than 15 years. His love for baseball was rewarded in 2005, when his beloved White Sox won the World Series.

He was a devout Catholic and he and Karen are twelve year members of St. Patrick's Catholic Community where he served in various ministries.

Bill is survived by his wife of 46 years, Karen Lee; sons and daughter in-laws Terry and Naomi of Gilbert, Bill and Sandy of Phoenix and Tim and Tara of Mesa; daughter and son in-law Pam and Bill Nielsen of Henderson, Nev.; and eight grandchildren: Kristen, Kimberly, Kelley, Kelsi, Billy, Caitlin, Kendra and Erin.

In his last days, he was surrounded by loving friends and colleagues, to whom his family is very appreciative. His passing has left a void in all who were fortunate enough to know him.

Beth Kalmbach Shafe

Beth Kalmbach Shafe of Fountain Hills died Monday, May 15, as the result of a stroke.

Beth was born March 31, 1917 in Detroit, Mich., to Louise and Josephine Kalmbach. As her family didnít have the wherewithal to send her and her brother, Don, to college, she worked her way through on her own, demonstrating at an early age her uncanny ability to accomplish a goal in spite of significant obstacles.

After graduating with bachelorís and masterís degrees from Wayne State University in Michigan, Beth taught music and related studies in the Detroit public schools for 32 years. She also performed on cello and harp and gave many hours as a volunteer promoter of the musical arts.

Beth married Fred Shafe in 1942. The two of them shared a deep love of music and the arts that would help bind them together for more than 50 years. They had two children, Tim and Jeff, both of whom shared their love of music.

Beth was an incorporator and president of the Mu Phi Epsilon, a musical arts fraternity that promotes music, friendship and harmony. She was presented the fraternityís first lifetime achievement award and was the recipient of the Hixon Award for service to Children.

After she and Fred moved to Fountain Hills in 1994, she became an active volunteer. She served 11 years on the In-Home Concerts Committee and was most involved with the Fountain Hills Arts Council.

She has also served as president of the Fountain Hills P.E.O. chapter and served terms on the boards of the Noon Kiwanis Club and the Fountain Hills Historical Society. Most recently she was inducted into the Lower Verde Valley Hall of Fame in recognition of her many volunteer efforts.

In spite of her many achievements, Beth will most profoundly be remembered by those whose hearts she touched along the way. Her cheerful, "can-do" spirit was appreciated by many and will be remembered for many years to come.

A memorial service is planned for Friday, June 16, at the Fountain Hills Presbyterian Church.

Memorial donations may be sent directly to the Fountain Hills Historical Society or the P.E.O. Cottey College scholarship program, care of Joan Pharr, 13771 N. Fountain Hills Blvd., Suite 114, Box 203, Fountain Hills, AZ 85268 Checks should be made payable to Chapter DZ P.E.O. and designated for the Cottey College fund.
