Greeting From Our Reunion Association President


Hello Everyone,

We are very excited and are looking forward to seeing everyone again this year. Our first page has the lineup for our programs and our activities, and I just want to say, that these activities are provided for you, and at your disposal, nothing is mandatory! If you so choose, feel free to ask for help from Peter Richardson, Historian Emeritus, or from Ken Kalloch, our Webmaster/Historian, for what type of information you are interested in, your families, relatives, please do so. We invite all of you to get acquainted, and feel free to say hello, if you are comfortable with that! Or, if you just want to look around by yourself, feel free to do so!

I feel that it is important today, to draw your attention to the Obituaries this year, on the back sheets, as there are some very close family members who have passed on, and who have been so very active for many, many years! The first person I speak of is, Barbara Wilson! She is the Grandmother to our Treasurer and Registrar, Paul Wilson! Paul is quite proud to say that it was his Grandmother, Barbara, who was Paul's inspiration to begin attending our Kalloch Reunions in the beginning! He has enjoyed being our Treasurer, and he has added being the Registrar to his duties since he came on board. We are delighted that John and Bev Wilson, Paul's parents, have also been coming to our reunions for quite a while, and are enjoying themselves! Bev, has just recently, become our Co-President! I also want to add, that Barbara Wilson, has been attending our Kalloch Reunions for many, many years, but, I don't know many, and, I believe that our Historian Emeritus, Peter Richardson, would know as he has been coming to the Kalloch Reunions since he was four (4) years old! I am a relative "Newcomer" so to speak, compared to others, as I began attending only since 1989!

Evelyn Kalloch, obituary, cannot hold all the information for her, as she has been attending reunions for many, many years, and has been a major supporter, volunteer worker in anything and everything, that needs to be done, plus being a Full Time Real Estate Owner/Manager. She arrived in America from Finland, and married into my Mother's Kalloch family, a few years ago, to my Mom's Cousin, Phillip Kalloch, Evelyn was incredible as our Newsletter writer and correspondent, for many years, also our Treasurer for many years after that, even on up into her 90's! Her Daughter, Vickie Hammond, also a work-a-bee just like her Mom, and had been our best Secretary for over 25 years, and she is still a very strong supporter of our Kalloch Family reunions!

Anita Nelson: Co-President/Newsletter editor

A Note From Our Kalloch Family Historian Peter T. Richardson


The demise of the First Baptist Church in Rockland is noted by Kallochs with more than passing interest. One of Rockland’s original four congregations, the church succumbed to a hostile takeover during the past year by a group calling itself Pursuit Church.

Amariah Kalloch I was its first minister. Known for his preaching, at Baptist conventions he was often the speaker while his brother, Joseph, usually gave the prayer. Amariah eventually went west to preach to the ‘49ers. Fourth minister of the church was the famous Isaac Kalloch, of the “golden voice.” Like his father, Isaac too went west, preached in a large Baptist Temple in San Francisco and was elected Mayor on the “Know-Nothing” ticket. Kallochs have been members of the church ever since. My great grandfather, Frank Kalloch (of coffee pot fame), sang bass in the choir while his wife, Almeda, led the “Kalloch Class,” drawing over 100 women a Sunday. My Grandmother attended Sunday School there and her sister, Mabel Kalloch Rollins, gave an oil portrait of Rev. Amariah to her church.

Alas, the church records and Amariah’s portrait now reside at the Rockland Historical Society where they will be safe for historians to learn their story.

In Remembrance - Some Obituaries of Family & Friends Who Have Passed



Barbra H. Wilson
BANGOR - Barbara H. Wilson, 92, of Bangor, Maine moved on to the next stage of her spiritual journey May 12, 2019 following a brief illness. She was born on October 29, 1926 in Clearwater, Florida; the daughter of Ernest and Hazel Crosby. Barbara was predeceased by two daughters Susan and Carolyn. She is survived by sons Ed Wilson and wife Linda of Pompton Plains, NJ; daughter Katie and husband Pat; Paul Wilson and wife Gail of Toms River, NJ; children Susan, Steven, Gail-Ann, and Robbie; Carolyn's daughter Danielle; John Wilson and wife Bev of Hampden, ME their children Paul and Kim; David Wilson of Orono, ME and children Sami and Carter. Barbara is also survived by brother-in-law Ray Wilson and wife Eleanor, sister-in-law, Ginny Hill and husband Dick. Barbara's love of children was exhibited in her work at Head Start, providing respite care for foster children, and her "job" as a nanny to Ben and Bekah Jaffe. Barbara enjoyed being friends with people of all generations, knowing that each age had something special to offer. She loved knitting and sewing, providing hats for newborns at EMMC, blankets for animals at the Bangor Humane Society, and countless items for her grandchildren. Barbara enjoyed gardening, reading, collecting teddy bears and spending time with her beloved pets. Barbara was devoted to her many faith communities throughout the years, the most recent being the Veazie Congregational Church, 1404 State St., where a memorial service will be held on Friday May 24, 2019 at 1 PM. In lieu of flowers, Barbara requested donations be made to the Veazie Congregational Church or Pancreatic Cancer Action Network, 1500 Rosecrans Ave., Ste. 200, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266 or pancan.org. Condolences to the family may be expressed at BrookingsSmith.com



Evelyn V. Kalloch
Evelyn Violet Kalloch, 91, passed peacefully away on Oct. 10, 2018, surrounded by her family. She will be dearly missed by daughter Victoria Levesque Hammond and son Phillip Kalloch, her grandchildren Mya-Lisa and Aaron King and Jonathan and Andrew Kalloch, Mark Levesque, Hannah Sirois, and Ben Schulz, and great-grandchildren, Tessa and Jack Condon, Will and Jake King, Justin Levesque, Cameron, Elliot, and Alexandra Schulz, Finleigh and Auguste Sirois, as well as many other family members and friends. She was predeceased by her WWII veteran husband, Phillip Carroll Kalloch, who died in 1989. The daughter of Finnish immigrants, Evelyn was born in Rockland on May 3, 1927, and lived most of her life in Owl's Head and Cushing, before moving to the Portland area. Over the years, Evelyn embodied the Finnish tradition of "sisu," a word that typifies the Finnish spirit: grit, tenacity, and determination. While raising her son and daughter, she obtained her GED, took college courses, did bookkeeping at Sylvania and the Trade Winds Hotel, and later ran a convenience store with her husband in Rockland. After obtaining her real estate license in 1975, she established and owned Town Line Real Estate, and continued selling real estate into her 80's. She was named Realtor of the Year in Knox County two separate times, in 1988 and 2011. Of her many civic contributions to the Rockland-Thomaston area, she was President of the Thomaston Chamber of Commerce for six years, and served as Cushing Town Assessor from 1978 to 1984, and again from 2001 to 2017, on the Cushing Planning Board from 1997 to 2017, and the Board of Assessors from 2004 to 2013. Evelyn was honored by the town of Cushing in 2018 for 40 years of service. After her husband's death in 1989, she continued maintaining their 28-acre property on the Saint George River. She mowed multiple acres of lawn with a tractor, wielded axes and saws, and tended fruit trees and vegetable and flower beds. She complained occasionally about how much work she had to do, but clearly enjoyed the hard physical labor and loved walking the property and shoreline with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Later, she downsized to a smaller house and property, but still kept her tractor. Evelyn never forgot her Finnish heritage, traveling to Finland with her daughter Victoria, hosting her Finnish relatives in Maine, and even attempting to share the challenging and convoluted Finnish language with her family but with little success. She took a sauna, a tradition established when she was a young girl, well into her late 80s. A talented gourmet cook, she delighted in cooking and serving delicious meals from food plucked from her garden. She was a connoisseur of exotic olive oils, and an aficionado of canning and pickling. Plus, time in the kitchen led to enjoying a "short slurp," as she called it, with family and friends. Evelyn will be dearly missed. The family will be holding a memorial service in June. To share a memory or story with Evelyn's family, please visit their online Book of Memories at www.bchfh.com. Arrangements are in the care of Burpee, Carpenter & Hutchins Funeral Home, Rockland. Those who wish to remember Evelyn may make donations to Cushing Rescue Squad, 39 Cross Road, Cushing, ME 04563, or the Finnish Heritage House, P.O. Box 293, So. Thomaston, ME 04858



Rev. Clark B. Olsen
Asheville - The Reverend Clark Bird Olsen, born June 22, 1933 in Boston Massachusetts, passed away at his home in Asheville, NC, January 21, 2019. The son of the late Arthur and Catherine Bird Olsen, he grew up in Massachusetts and Ohio. He is survived by his wife Anna Rogers, daughter Marika, son Todd, and his brother Lee. His sister Elaine, brothers Dexter and Tyler, and first wife Ludmilla predeceased him. Clark received a BA degree from Oberlin College, a Bachelor of Sacred Theology from Harvard Divinity School, and a Doctor of Sacred Theology degree from Starr King School for the Ministry. He served as Minister at Unitarian Universalist churches in Westboro, Massachusetts, Berkley, California and Morristown, New Jersey. In the late 1970 his work focused on consulting in areas of organization and individual effectiveness for UU Churches, corporations, and non-profits. Clark always considered his life to be a gift. Two bouts with rheumatic fever as a child left him with damaged heart valves and his doctors predicted a short life span. And, an incident in Selma, Alabama brought him inches away from serious if not fatal injury. In 1965, and the midst of the civil rights struggle in the south, Clark's Berkley congregation answered the call of Dr. Martin Luther King for ministers to come to Selma in response to "Bloody Sunday", where civil rights marchers were brutally beaten while trying to cross the Edmund Pettus Bridge in a walk to Birmingham. Clark was ready to stand up for justice, but knew, "I was not going to a picnic." His first night in Selma, while walking to Brown's Chapel to hear Dr. King speak, Clark and two other UU ministers, Orloff Miller and James Reeb, were accosted and beaten with clubs by four men. A blow directly to Rev.Reeb's head proved fatal. "I saw the man swing the club, I heard it hit Jim's head" Clark explained at the time. "Jim was walking on the curb, I was walking next to the building. Call it chance or happenstance, as I lived and he did not." This incident proved the pivot point to the passing of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, and provided the moral compass for the rest of the Rev. Olsen's life. He has spoken world wide about civil rights, and took part for many years in the Sojourn Project which takes young people on a living history tour and introduces the places and people who forged the pathways of understanding and awareness to civic responsibility. "Don't be a silent witness," Clark implored everyone he spoke to about his experience. "Whenever you see injustice, speak up, take a stand, be in solidarity, you never know what may be the outcome." A Celebration of Clark's life will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville on Saturday, February 2, at 11 AM. Donations in memory of Rev. Clark Olsen can be made to the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Asheville, 1 Edwin Place, Asheville, NC 28801.



John A. Jura
UNION — John Arthur ‘Art’ Jura, 88, formerly of Union, died Monday, March 18, 2019 at Mid-Coast Hospital in Brunswick. Born in Union, May 13, 1930, he was the son of Erland and Alli Kajander Jura. Educated locally, he was a graduate of Warren High School. Enlisting in the U.S. Air Force in 1948, he served as a photographer with the Strategic Air Command. Art married his high school sweetheart, E. Joyce Butler at the Warren Baptist Church on June 17, 1950. While on their honeymoon, the Korean War broke out and Art was immediately recalled to his assignment in Rapid City, South Dakota. After obtaining an apartment, he sent for Joyce, and she bravely traveled alone 2,400 miles by train to join him for the remaining years of his service to his country. During those two years,the couple occupied four different apartments, and their first child was born in an Air Force hospital. Returning home after his discharge, the couple made their home on Pacific Street in Rockland, and later purchased a home on Cedar Street where they raised their family. Ultimately, they built a new home in Union where they resided together until Joyce’s death in 2010. Since 1954, Art and his wife worked together in their various businesses, including Schoolphoto Inc., Jura Studio, Jura Photo Lab and Oyster River Range. Art has always been an active community member and proud of his Finnish heritage. He was instrumental in reestablishing the Pine Hill Shooting Club, and extremely active with the Finnish Congregational Church, Finnish Heritage House, and Finnish American Society. He served for many years as a Deacon of the Finnish Congregational Church, as well as the Littlefield Memorial Baptist Church in earlier years. Traveling to Finland in 1992 and 2001, he completed many hours of research for his three books Fenni, Fenni-II and Norden. The three books are about the culture and history of Finnish Americans written between 2001 and 2005. Art felt it was his mission to honor his ancestors, and to make sure the roots of the Finnish culture remained in the area so people could research their history. Predeceased by his wife of 60 years E. Joyce Jura; and a grandson Phillip A. Jura; he is survived by his two sons, Mark Jura and his wife Debbie of Union, Erik Jura and his wife Michelle of Cushing; his daughter Peggy Smist and her husband Mark of Thomaston; eight grandchildren, Matthew Jura and his wife Melina, Heidi Hall and her husband Scott, John Smist and his wife Alyson, Megan Thill and her husband Craig, Jennifer Jura, Andrew Jura, Aaron Lavoie, Shane Lavoie and his wife Megan; fourteen great-grandchildren, Zackery Hall, Mya Hall, Kissandra Hall, Gilbert Thill, Caroline Smist, Damon Carlton, Arianna Byron, Makennah Jura, Jacob Frost, Emily Frost, Isabelle Kaler, Phillip N.

Family and friends are invited to visit Friday, March 29, from 5 to 7 p.m., at Burpee, Carpenter and Hutchins Funeral Home, 110 Limerock Street, Rockland. A celebration of his life will be held Saturday, March 30, at 2 p.m., at the Finnish Congregational Church, 172 St. George Road, South Thomaston.
