OBITUARY ~ HENRY MICHAEL "HANK" SEIFFERT

Henry Michael SEIFFERT was born March 12, 1921 in Waterloo, Iowa, to Michael and Florence SEIFFERT, and departed this life at his farm home in Redding, Iowa on August 17, 1988.

He was graduated from high school in Waterloo, and attended college at Northwest Missouri State University in Maryville, Mo.

On May 13, 1943, he married Barbara THOMAS of Redding, Iowa, at Bethany, Missouri. To this union were born two children, Ila Kay THUMMEL of Lawson, Mo., and Thomas Michael SEIFFERT of Florissant, Colorado.

The home was first established in Ft. Dodge, Iowa, where "Hank" was employed by Firestone Tire and Rubber Co. In 1948, they moved to Blockton, Iowa, where he was engaged in the oil business.

In 1964 he assumed the duties of Field Auditor with the Iowa Department of Revenue, a position he held until his retirement in May of 1986.

"Hank" served his country as Signalman 1st Class in the U.S. Navy during World War II. He was a member of the American Legion in Blockton, and the V.F.W. in Creston, Iowa. He was a very active member of the United Methodist church in Redding, where he served as a member of the Board of Trustees.

"Hank" and Barbara moved to their present farm home in 1966. Hank enjoyed living in the country and worked on the farm. He took great pride in preserving the family farm and derived much pleasure from the hours he spent there. He was a very unassuming person, always ready to lend a hand and was sincerely interested in others. His presence in the church and community, as well as the family circle, will be sorely missed.

He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Eugene; a sister-in-law, Frances; his mother-in-law, Bernice LYNCH, and a brother-in-law, Esse FREED.

He is survived by his wife, Barbara; his daughter, Ila Kay and her husband, Steve; his son, Tom; four grandchildren, Jennifer and Jason THUMMEL and Carly and Allen SEIFFERT; two nephews, Gene SEIFFERT and family of Hazelton, Iowa and David FREE and family of Emporia, Kansas; a niece, Connie ALBERT and family of Waterloo; a sister-in-law, Kathleen FREED of Redding, and a cousin, Marian HUGHES and family of Lenox, Iowa.

Funeral services were held August 20, 1988, from the United Methodist church at Redding, Iowa, conducted by Rev. Samuel FRY. Music was provided by Mrs. John SHAFER.

Casketbearers were H. W. COMBS, John SHAFER, Henry MOSER, Howard KOBBE, Gary LAMBERT and Stephen AMRINE. Burial was in the Rose Hill Cemetery at Blockton, Iowa.
