Darrell Andrew Wadle was born November 24, 1931 to Henry Leo and Clara Angela Wadle at their home in Lacona, Iowa. Darrell was one of nine children born to the couple. He grew up a mile and a half north of Lacona and attended country school through the 8th grade.

Darrell was married to Erma Louise Ohnemus on November 5, 1952 at the Rosemount Church in Lacona. To this union, three children were born: Susan, Frank and Marge. The family moved to a farm near Chariton in 1976. Darrell enjoyed farming and gardening. He often took vegetables around Chariton to the elderly.

Darrell was a motivated and strong-willed person who loved to learn. He went on to receive his GED in 1975 and held the top scores in his class. He loved to read and was full of random knowledge. He often read the newspaper, Reader’s Digest, and the encyclopedia. He was innovative and could fix anything. Last year, Darrell installed solar panels on his house.

Darrell enjoyed the simple things. He loved homemade wine, old westerns, playing card games, and he was a great cook. Above all else, Darrell enjoyed time spent with his wife, children, and granddaughter. His family will miss his bright smile and his great sense of humor.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Henry and Clara Wadle; and siblings: Helen Wadle, Irene Jacops, Marvin Wadle, Glen Wadle, Alfred Wadle, Virgil Wadle, and Don Wadle.
