Jerry Barnard

November 21, 1932 — March 15, 2019

Jerry Lee Barnard, the son of Harry Hobart and Mildred Ann (Wuelser) Barnard was born November 21, 1932, in New Bloomfield, Missouri. Jerry entered eternal rest Friday, March 15, 2019, at Corning Specialty Care, Corning, Iowa, at the age of eighty-six years.
Jerry attended school through the eighth grade in Jefferson City, Missouri, and later obtained his G.E.D. Jerry joined the United States Air Force on December 29, 1951 and served his country as a Medic during the Korean Conflict. He was honorably discharged on December 15, 1955, having received the National Defense Service Medal, Korean Service Medal, United Nations Service Medal, as well as the Good Conduct Medal. Following the service, Jerry moved to Kansas City, Missouri where he worked at St. Luke’s Hospital.
Jerry was united in marriage to Marilyn Odson on June 5, 1960 at the Baptist Church in Kansas City. Two children were born to bless this union: Tanya and Darren. The family moved to Adams County in the spring of 1966 and lived 14 years in Douglas Township across the road from the Strand Church. They moved to Corning in 1980. Jerry worked for Union Carbide and retired in May 1991. He then began working part-time at Mercy Hospital as a courier.
Jerry was a member of the Strand Lutheran Church and the Corning American Legion. Jerry enjoyed camping and his yard work. In his younger days he enjoyed fishing and he was quite accomplished as a roller-skater. He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him.
