Tillie "Toot" Jean Chase

February 2, 1964 ~ July 1, 2020 (age 56)

Tillie "Toot" Chase, born February 2, 1964, passed away unexpectedly on July 1, 2020 in Minneapolis, MN.

She is preceded in death by her parents Valentine and Arthur Chase.

She is survived and will forever be missed by her children Ursala (Philip) Pankonin, Shanda (David) Martin, Amanda Watts and Quint Ironnecklace; her grandchildren Christopher, Aneema, Guinevere, Thaddeus, and Auberon; her siblings James, Roberta, Arthur, Valerie, Joseph and David; her fiancé Daniel Ritzman, and her large family of aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews.

Toot will be remembered for her strength. She was a fighter, with an enviable resilience and fierce determination. Toot turned pain into strength and conquered many of life's obstacles.

Toot will be remembered for her beauty. She was beautiful in her youth and in her maturity. She was beautiful in her heart with her ready ear and her open door.

Toot will be remembered for her love. She enjoyed singing, dancing, and spending time with her family, particularly her grandchildren with whom she shared so much of her goofiness. Her other great love was her pets, Elvis and Lexie, the two most spoiled dogs you would ever meet. Her last days were spent with her beloved fiancé, her precious puppies, and her loving family.

The visitation will take place at the Bena Community Center in Bena, MN starting Sunday, July 5, 2020 at 4:00 p.m. The visitation will be followed by a funeral service on Monday, July 6 at 11:00 a.m. Reverend Lenny Fineday will officiate. Helping to lay Toot to rest are Art Chase, Dan Ritzman, Quint Ironnecklace, Joe Chase, Jim Chase, David Chase, and Philip Pankonin. Her honorary pallbearers are all her family and friends. Tillie's body will be interred in the Washburn-McReavy Hillside Cemetery at Minneapolis, MN per her request.

Please wear a mask to keep Toot's family safe.
