Harold F. Dannehold

Harold F. Dannehold, 91, of Waterloo, died Aug. 6, 2017, in St. Louis.

He was born Dec. 14, 1925, in Waterloo, son of the late Leo and Rose Dannehold (nee Kolmer).

Harold was a member of SS Peter & Paul Church, Monroe County Farm Bureau, and a US Navy Veteran.

Harold was a proud lifelong farmer, seeing every innovation and hardship of farming since the Great Depression.

He was proud of his naval service. He trained to invade Japan and later served on the Battleship Missouri.

He enjoyed attending auctions and adding to his collection of tools and equipment. Harold particularly loved his TD-18 and earth moving equipment.

Harold was dedicated to his farm and family. Groundhogs rest easier now that he is not on the farm. Above all, he became one half of the best, most hardworking farm partnership ever formed when he married Irene Heiken in 1952.

After seven years apart, they are together again, enjoying the rest they earned many times over.

He is survived by his children Terry Dannehold and Sandra Dannehold; sister Rosalie Baum; nieces; nephews; and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his wife Irene M. Dannehold; parents; sisters Evelyn Janson, Kathleen L. Straub, and Alberta Hicks; and brothers Warren H. Dannehold and Eugene C. Dannehold.

Visitation is 3-8 p.m. Aug. 17, and 8-9:30 a.m. Aug. 18, at Quernheim Funeral Home, Waterloo.

A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 10 a.m. Aug. 18, at Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic Church, Waterloo, Father Von Deeke officiating.

Interment will follow at Ss. Peter & Paul Catholic Cemetery, Waterloo.

As an expression of sympathy the family prefers memorial contributions to in the form of Mass at Our Lady of Good Counsel Home or to Our Lady of Good Counsel Home.
