Birth: May 23, 1881
Osage County
Missouri, USA
Death: Dec. 20, 1956

Steve the youngest of the Wilhelm Friedrich and Anna Catherine Winkelmann Bode family. He was born on 23 May 1881 in Osage County on a farm located south of the Osage River two miles above the Federal Lock and Dam, about 11 miles north of Westphalia then known as the Bode Ferry Road.

Steve was baptised in the St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Westphalia, Missouri. He attended a neighborhood public school known as the Bexton School, he also had additional schooling at St. Peter's High School in Jefferson City.

As a young man he worked at home on the farm, and later as a farm hand in Illinois for some of his relatives (the John Peter Bode family).

He married Johanna Mary Koetting on Aug. 7, 1907 at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church in Taos, MO. They had 10 children.

Stephen's brother Henry Bode married Johanna's aunt Wilhelmina Rehagen, and his sister Elizabeth Amalia married Johanna's uncle Frank Rehagen. Thus leading to the intricate intertwining of the Bode and Rehagen Families.
