Delmar J. Wilson

May 25, 1941 — August 12, 2017

Delmar John Wilson, the son of Harold Willard and Margaret Helen (Pattison) Wilson, was born May 25, 1941, in Adams County, Iowa. Delmar entered eternal rest on Saturday, August 12, 2017, at CHI Health Mercy Hospital, Corning, Iowa, at the age of seventy-six years, two months, and eighteen days.
Delmar’s family moved to Oregon, then Hopkins, Missouri, where he graduated with the class of 1960. Following graduation the family moved to Corning, Iowa. Delmar served his country in the National Guard from 1958 to 1960. Delmar was united in marriage to Barbara Jeanette Forbes on October 18, 1961, at the Salem Church of the Brethren, Lenox, Iowa. Three children were born to bless this union: Rosalie, Scott, and Kevin.
Delmar started working at the Corning Creamery where he hauled cream and eggs. He then started work at the D L factory in Red Oak, Iowa, in 1973, and would work there for 33 years, until his retirement. Delmar had many interests. He belonged to the Boots Bows Square Dance Club, and Barbara and Delmar would travel southwest Iowa attending square dances. He also enjoyed woodworking and playing cribbage. He liked being outdoors where he could spend time camping or walking his dog. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
Left to cherish Delmar’s memory are his children: Rosalie Lamb, Corning, Iowa; Scott Wilson, Corning, Iowa; Kevin (Tammie) Wilson, Shenandoah, Iowa; granddaughter: Kimberly Wilson, Shenandoah, Iowa; many nieces, nephews, and other relatives and friends.
Preceding Delmar in death were his parents; wife Barbara in 1996; sister: Mary Tiemann; brothers-in-law: Marvin Tiemann; Charlie Osborn; sister-in-law Jean Osborn.
