Iver WACKERNAGLE, 60, of Bedford, Iowa, passed away Nov. 23, 1983. He had been in failing health the past year in and out of the hospital and the Clearview Nursing Home in Mount Ayr, Iowa.

Iver's entire life was spent around and near the Clearfield community. He attended country schools south of Clearfield and then stayed with his aunt, Rose WACKERNAGLE part of the time while attending high school in Clearfield. He graduated with the class of 1942.

He enjoyed taking care of the livestock and farming, with his son Jack helping.
