Excerpts from Pierschbacher Funeral Home Obituary:
Austin Monroe Bennett was born March 29, 1929 at the family home in Wright, Township, Wayne County, to Lewis Earl and Julia Viola (Buttz) Bennett. He passed away on April 20, 2012 at Legacy Lodge in Chariton, Iowa at the age of 83 years.
As a child Austin attended Hickory Ridge Country School until the fifth grade. He then attended Fairview Country School through eighth grade. Austin took two years off from school so he could help on the family farm during World War II. He finished his schooling at Promise City High School graduating at the top of his class in May 1949. After high school he continued working on the family farm.
Austin was drafted into the United States Army on January 9, 1952. While serving two years, he graduated from the Food Service School and served as an Army cook. Upon returning to Iowa, Austin farmed until he began attending college at Centerville Community College.
Austin was preceded in death by his parents, brothers: Richard Dan (1931), Roy LaVern (1985), Ermal Lewis (1998); and sisters: Edna May (1916), Lola Fern (1997), Audrey Evelyn Schultz (2006), and Eliza Elizabeth Chapman (2007).
Austin is survived by his brother, Bernard and wife Barbara of Chesapeake, VA; sister-in-law, Mary (Bennett) and husband Rev. Charles Kirtley of Corydon, and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
