Duane Norman Benedict, the youngest of three children of Norman Thomas and Sylvia Gladys (Boyce) Benedict, was born on April 25, 1925 in Glenwood, Iowa. He graduated from the Glenwood High School in 1943. Duane farmed at an early age by helping his father. He continued farming on land near Emerson, Iowa, but in 1954, Duane found that carpentry work was more to his liking. He worked in the carpentry business until his retirement.

Duane and Lois Ellen Jurgens were united in marriage on August 19, 1945 at St. John Lutheran Church in Mineola, Iowa. They were blessed with a son David.

Duane enjoyed carpentry and landscaping. He was extremely proud that a photo of his home was featured on the cover of the Better Homes & Garden magazine; showcasing his beautiful landscaped yard. He loved spending time with his grandchildren and great grandchildren.

Doyel, and Viva Miller and her husband George.

So sorry to read about Duane. Duane did a lot of carpentry work for me over many years, along with Markie Harrington. He was a great person to know. Regards, Peggy Kruse
