About George John Nistler

George John Nistler

George was born in Watkins, Minnesota on October 27, 1932, the son of Anna (Braun) and Bernard Nistler. He attended Eden Valley High School. After graduation, he enlisted in the United States Army where he was stationed at Marshall Islands in the South Pacific. While at a barn dance, after being honorably discharged, he met the love of his life, Annabelle Huberty. George was a wonderful polka dancer and caught Annabelle’s eye. The two were equally smitten with each other and were married on September 17, 1957 at St. James Catholic Church in Jacobs Prairie. After moving to the Twin Cities, they made their home on Geranium Avenue in Maplewood where they raised their five children. George was a proud German and a very hard worker. He worked for the St. Paul Postal Service and later within the ISD #622. After retiring, he and Annabelle began traveling extensively with their siblings and friends. They took many bus tours throughout the United States with their most memorable trip being to Alaska. In his spare time, he enjoyed fishing, camping, playing card games or horseshoes, and spending time with his family. George was a wonderful husband and father, he had a quiet demeanor, and his family meant the world to him. He will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

George passed away peacefully on the evening of March 26, 2020 while surrounded by his family. He had been living at Ecumen Seasons in Maplewood with Annabelle. His family would like to thank the staff of HealthEast Hospice and of Ecumen Seasons for their compassionate care of both George and Annabelle.

George is preceded in death by his parents, Anna and Bernard Nistler; his siblings, Mary (Al) Theisen, Adeline (Edwin) Theis, Bernard Nistler, Ed (Cindy) Nistler, Ray (Barb) Nistler, and Ralph Nistler.

He will be dearly missed by his wife of 62 years, Annabelle Nistler of Maplewood; his children, Mary Ann (John) Pfaff of Oakdale, Margaret (Bruce) Koopmeiners of North St. Paul, Linda (Bruce) Schmidt of Lake Elmo, Bob Nistler of Watkins, and Gerry Nistler of Maplewood; his ten grandchildren, Andrea (Matt) Gramse, Lauren Pfaff, Daniel Koopmeiners, Jeremy (Morgan Solfest) Koopmeiners, John (Leah) Schmidt, Andrew (Melissa Wikman) Schmidt, Nick (Jess Saba) Nistler, Hannah Nistler, Elizabeth (Seth) Olson, and Ben Nistler; his only great-grandchild, Calvin; his sister-in-law, Marie Nistler of St. Cloud; and many other family and friends.

The family held private services for George with Fr. Nicholas Froehle leading prayers and another at Ecumen Seasons where they held a beautiful Dignity Veteran Service.

There will be public services for family and friends at a later date at Transfiguration Catholic Church in Oakdale with military honors and burial at Fort Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis. Thank you for your support and understanding as we wait for more details regarding George’s Mass of Christian Burial.
