Obituary

Herman Henry Gansemer, 88, of Sherrill, passed away Saturday, August 17, 2019, at Hawkeye Care Center.

Services will be at 10 a.m. Friday August 23, at Egelhof, Siegert & Casper Funeral Home and Crematory, 2659 John F. Kennedy Rd., Dubuque, where friends may greet the family from 9 a.m. to 9:45 a.m. Br. Stephen Markham will officiate. Interment will be at Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic Cemetery, Sherrill. Friends may also greet the family from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, August 22, at Egelhof, Siegert & Casper Funeral Home and Crematory.

Herman was born August 21, 1930 in Sherrill, the son of Henry and Theresa (Butlett) Gansemer. He married Marie Osterkamp on January 8, 1952, at Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic Church. She preceded him in death on April 23, 1997.

Herman farmed for many years on the family dairy farm in Sherrill. Along with Marie, he enjoyed dancing, including Polka, and was a member of the Gold Rush square dancing group.

In 2006, Herman met Lelah Peet, whose companionship he enjoyed until her passing in January of 2019. Herman and Lelah enjoyed vacationing in Mission, TX during winters. Herman was an avid recycler, and was devoted to cleaning up the beach at Finley’s Landing.

Herman is survived by three children, Kathy (Del) Winter of Marion, Joan (John) Lux of Dubuque, and Ron (Delores) Gansemer of Sherrill; eight grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren; and four siblings, Henry (Mary Jane) Gansemer, Darlene (Emil) Weber, Clarence (Darlene) Gansemer, and Sally (Cletus) Bleile.

In addition to his wife, Herman was preceded in death by his parents; his sister Viola (Mick) Hefel; and two brothers, Lawrence Gansemer, and LaVerne in infancy.

In lieu of flowers, memorials will be accepted by the family for later donation to Herman’s favorite charities.

Herman’s family would like to thank the staff at Hawkeye Care Center and Hospice of Dubuque.
