Eldeane Pauline Klindt Quintieri, daughter of Joseph William and Luella Emelia (Deitchler) Wriedt, was born on June 12, 1929 in Council Bluffs, Iowa. She grew up in the Silver City, Iowa area and attended Silver School where her father and grandmother attended. Eldeane graduated from the Glenwood High School in 1947.
Eldeane and Walter Edgar Klindt, Jr. were married on September 12, 1948 at St. John Lutheran Church in Mineola, Iowa. The couple was blessed with two children, Marcia Diane and Rodney Alan. They lived on the Klindt family farm until 1951 when they moved to the Wriedt family farm. It later became a Century Farm in 1985.
Eldeane was a busy farm wife and mother. She and Walter enjoyed traveling in their pick-up camper. Walter passed away at the age of 53 on October 3, 1980.
Eldeane and Mike Quintieri were united in marriage on May 30, 1993 at the Grace United Methodist Church in Glenwood. The couple made their home in Glenwood and enjoyed traveling to Texas and Arizona in the winter, the Heritage Club bus tours, playing cards and dining out with friends. They were married 14 years when Mike passed away at their Glenwood home on November 23, 2007.
Eldeane was a member of the Grace United Methodist Church and served as an assistant Circle Leader. She served on the Mills County Extension Council and was a member of the Share a Book Club of Glenwood and Farm Bureau. She loved spending time with her friends, especially her family and grandchildren, who were her pride and joy.

I dearly recall visits to Eldeane with Marcia, a WONDERFUL daughter! She would always bring her Mom beautiful flowers. May she Rest In Peace for eternity! Fondly, Lynn S
