Obituary for Dale W.A. Wenndt

Dale W. A. Wenndt, 84, of Oxford Jct. Iowa passed away peacefully in his home Nov. 7, 2019 surrounded by his family. Visitation will be held Tuesday Nov. 12 from 4 to 7 p.m. at Chapman Funeral Home in Clarence with funeral services on Wednesday November 13 at 10:30 am also at Chapman’s in Clarence with Rev. Matt Schneider-Adams officiating. A lunch will be served at St. John’s United Church of Christ, Clarence, immediately following the funeral. There also will be a visitation held one hour prior to the service at the funeral home. Dale will be laid to rest next to his loving wife in a private family burial plot at Diamond Cemetery in rural Clarence at a later date.

Dale was born March 28, 1935 in Lowden, Iowa to Walter and Anna (Kruckenberg) Wenndt. He married Janice Conrad on June 17, 1956 in Clarence, Iowa. She passed away on June 18, 2019.

Dale farmed in Lowden, Iowa and rural Oxford Jct. Iowa until 1989. Following his farming career, he owned and operated a lawn mowing business until earlier this year. He was most proud of the cemeteries that he maintained and especially the Olin Cemetery, as well as the many private lawns he cared for. He spent many years setting on various county boards and doing local community service. His biggest joy was making sure his family, his special neighbors and their families, John and Linda Sander, and Monti and Margo Ahrendsen, knew he was always available to lend a hand or to give advice. Dale can be remembered by the friends of Bill & Lois W. for always offering guidance and support. He was known for never shying away from building or fixing anything, and was a strong, generous and independent person who always offered his assistance and help with anything anyone wanted or needed. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather and will be dearly missed by his family and those who knew him.

Dale is survived by his children Karlene (Dennis) McAtee, Karrie (Bret) Classen, Keith (special friend Sheryl Leonard) Wenndt, Kurtis (Ute) Wenndt, seven grandchildren, five great-grandchildren, & brother Lester (Uncle Butch) Wenndt.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 63 years Janice; parents; brother Wilbert Wenndt; and sisters Lavone Driscol & Phyllis Boedeker.
