JERRY B. OSTRANDER

Jerry Bennett Ostrander, age 65, of Kahoka, MO, died Saturday, May 12, 2012 in the emergency room of Keokuk Area Hospital following a demolition accident in Kahoka.

Jerry was born December 7, 1946 in Chico, CA, a son of John Bennett and Argyl Conklin Ostrander

He married Nancy Wolf on July 28, 1965, in Reno, NV.

Survivors include his wife, Nancy, of Kahoka, MO; two sons, Michael Ostrander of North Dakota, and Jeffrey (Sharon) Ostrander of Springfield, OR; two daughters, Stacy (Mrs. Stan) Palmer of Platina, CA and Jennifer (Mrs. Todd) Everhart of Sterling, CO; seven grandchildren: Amber Ostrander, Amanda (Mrs. Eric) Hontou, Brian (Rachel) Aldridge, Andrew and Ryan Ostrander, and Tate and Chance Everhart; two great grandchildren, Brian Aldridge, Jr. and Bria Louise Hontou; one brother, LeVoy (Ramona) Ostrander of Paynes Creek, CA; two sisters, Sharlene (Mrs. Tommy) Parker of Red Bluff, CA, and Darlene Long of Clear Lake, CA; as well as nieces, nephews, cousins and other relatives.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his in-laws, Donald and Mabel Evermon Wolf; a granddaughter, Jordan Whatley; and one brother, Ben Ostrander.

Jerry graduated from Hamilton Union High School in Hamilton City, CA with the class of 1965. He spent the majority of his life as a professional bee keeper in the California area, branching out on his own as long as his health permitted. After raising their children and retiring, he and Nancy moved to Missouri to be near Nancy's large, extended family. Jerry loved living in the rural area and spending time with Nancy's family and on their farms.

Jerry and Nancy enjoyed crafting together and selling their wares at various venues and visiting with the many friends they made. He always thought of Clark County as home and had only exchanged one small town for another. He was interested in preservation of history and spent many hours with Rodney Harvey restoring old cemeteries in Clark County. He was also a member of the Friends of Athens.

Funeral services were held Friday, May 18, 2012 at 11 a.m. at Wilson Funeral Home in Kahoka, Clark County, Missouri with Pastor Rob Quillin officiating. Cremation followed with inturnment to be at a later date in the Kahoka Cemetery.

Memorials were suggested to the family.

BURIAL UPDATE: WIFE, NANCY, DECIDED NOT TO HAVE JERRY BURIED AT THE KAHOKA CEMETERY, ALTHOUGH THEY DO HAVE PLOTS. SHE DECIDED TO KEEP JERRY'S ASHES WITH HER. SHE MADE THIS DECISION THINKING SHE MAY MOVE FROM KAHOKA.
