    Isaiah Matthew Thooft was born November 21, 2009 in Mankato. He was baptized at Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church in Lucan. Isaiah attended pre-school at Wabasso Public School. He loved school and his teacher. Isaiah liked playing hide and seek and playing tricks on people. He loved to help and shadowed his parents wherever they went. Isaiah liked helping his dad with chores and feeding the animals. He was very curious and wanted to know what you were doing. Isaiah loved to be snuggled, squeezed with big hugs, and tickled. He was always very talkative whether people were there or not. Isaiah loved books and being read to, and visited the library several times a week. He loved his little sister, and protected and watched out for her. Isaiah loved to laugh and had a big grin.
    Isaiah is survived by his parents Matt and Bernadette Thooft; siblings: Zachary, 11, Augustus, seven, Maxwell, four, Abigail, four, and Beatrice Grace, two; grandparents Leona Thooft of Tyler and Barbara DeCann of Belview (formerly of Osakis); godparents Mike and Annette Rohlik of Lucan; many aunts and uncles; and other relatives and friends.
