Rev. John Jeremiah McRaith, bishop emeritus of the Catholic Diocese of Owensboro, Ky., was towed to his rest behind a tractor, on a dusty flatbed between bales of hay. It was a tribute to the native Minnesotan's lifetime affinity for the world of farming."He was buried 15 miles outside of town at a convent cemetery," said his successor, Bishop William Francis Medley, "and all along the way, farmers parked their tractors and farm equipment along the road and stood there in silent salute. It was one of the most moving things I have ever seen."McRaith served as bishop of Owensboro from December 1982 until ill health cut his career short in January 2009. He died March 19 at the age of 82."It was corn and beans country, beef and pork, a bit of tobacco but less and less, so he would have felt right at home here, coming from a farm in rural Minnesota," Medley said.McRaith's sister, Margaret Mary Madden, said she felt a powerful blast of grateful warmth from the community in Kentucky when she traveled there for the funeral mass. The Owensboro diocese covers 32 counties in the western third of the state."I feel like I was sucked up into the eye of a tornado," she said. "I found there such love...Saturday, April 08, 2017
Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa in 1953. He attained his Masters in Journalism from the University of Wisconsin in Madison and a PH.D. in Higher Education from the University of Minnesota. Norm’s vision for merging higher education with moral based leadership is seen on Lutheran campuses across the nation. More broadly his calling was to guide those around him to live lives of purpose and meaning. For him that meant helping young people find their vocations through a liberal arts education.A committed servant leader, Norman assembled a talented team of colleagues who together developed the first strategic plan at Roanoke College. He set them free to realize that plan, which led to a transformative time in the life of the college. The college thrived with advancing enrollment, faculty, endowment, academics and national recognition. At the same time he strengthened the college’s relation to the Lutheran Church and to its historic Christian heritage. Retiring from Roanoke in 1975, Norm and Jo successfully took on several interim presidencies at other Lutheran colleges who were facing serious challenges. In 1979, he and Jo were invited to spend 5 months working with Bishop Qweka to work with building the strength of the Lutheran Church and its services for the people.In recent years they moved to the Brandon Oaks Retirement Community, where they delighted old and new friends with their presence.Though Norman would be the last to claim such praise, it is quite likely that on that Great Day the Lord will greet him with: “Well done, thou good and faithful servant.” (Matthew 25:21)A celebration of his life will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, April 9, 2017, in the Antrim Chapel at Roanoke College. A reception will follow, also at the College.In lieu of flowers the family asks that donations be made to The Fintel Scholarship at Roanoke College. Online condolences may be conveyed to the family at www.johnmoakey.com.
