Leota was born on December 17, 1923, in Mt. Carmel, Iowa to Frank and Emma Steinkamp. The family moved to their Arcadia, Iowa farm in 1929. She married Harold Eich on November 3, 1953 at St. John's Catholic Church in Arcadia. Leota and Harold had met at a dance and she recalled fondly every opportunity to dance throughout their 54 years of marriage. They resided in Manning and Denison before establishing their permanent residence in Ogden in 1962 where she lived until moving to the Woodlands in 2014. Leota was a member of St. John's Catholic Church in Ogden where she was a member of the St. John's Altar and Rosary Society.

Leota, who those close to her affectionately referred to as Odie, raised two boys and three girls. Odie was a fixture at Ohlson/Swanson Drug in Ogden for nearly 40 years and enjoyed her many friendships throughout the community. Faith, family, and friends were the foundation of her life. A lifelong card player, she especially loved games of rummy with her grandchildren and especially relished winning their quarters. A meticulous cleaner, Odie could be found sweeping the sidewalk as frequently as she would vacuum the carpet.

Leota is survived by her son Randy and his wife Michele of Ogden, with children Nolan and Drew; son Terry and his wife Jenny of Overland Park, KS, with children Jamie (Drew Van Scyoc and son Parker), Kelly, and Kacie; daughter Kristy Whigham and her husband Lyle of Phoenix, AZ, with children Cory (Morgan), Carrie, and Connor; daughter Mary Jensen and her husband Jeff of West Des Moines, IA, with child Travis; daughter Paula Olson and her husband Randy of West Des Moines, IA, with children Marissa and Trevor; sisters Virginia Wernimont of Atlantic, IA, and Neva Whitaker of Orange, CA; nieces, nephews, and other extended relatives.

Craig A. Wernimont
Craig Alan Wernimont, age 62, of Omaha, formerly of the Cumberland-Massena area, passed away on Wednesday, Sept. 7, 2011, at Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha.

Craig was born on December 18, 1948 at St. Anthony Hospital in Carroll, Iowa to Wilfred and Virginia (Steinkamp) Wernimont. Craig attended Cumberland-Massena schools, and graduated with the Cumberland Massena High School Class of 1967. He then went on to attend and graduate from Northwest Missouri State University in 1971 with a degree in Agricultural Business.

Craig was employed with Iowa Workforce Development in Council Bluffs for 36 years. Through his years of dedicated employment, Craig received many state awards for his job placement skills. These were awarded to him because of his incredible work ethic, trustworthiness, and reliability on the job. Upon retirement in 2007, Craig spent countless hours volunteering his time to help anyone he could. He was especially dedicated to volunteering at Madonna School, Jesuit Volunteer Corps, and Habitat for Humanity. Craig was a member of Holy Cross Catholic Church in Omaha. His faith was very important to him and he found great comfort in praying the rosary and attending mass regularly.

On Sept. 18, 1976 Craig was united in marriage to Jane (Sullivan) in Omaha. Craig was blessed with two sons, Jeff in 1981 and Cory in 1993, whom he adored. Some of his fondest memories were the times he spent with his sons. He coached their teams in little league baseball, basketball, and soccer, and spent endless hours in the backyard family pool. Craig was an avid Nebraska "Big Red" football fan and a Creighton Bluejay basketball follower. One of his favorite pastimes was cheering on these teams with his sons at his side. He loved to spend time with Jeff and all of his friends, exchanging stories, laughs, and the talk of sports. One of his greatest recent joys was the birth of his grandson, Jordan in 2010. He cherished the time they spent together; he was so proud to be a Grandpa. Craig also enjoyed spending time dining out, doing yard work, caring for his pool, and coupon shopping. Craig always took great pleasure in helping others and was always willing to give his time to those who in need.

Craig is survived by his wife: Jane Wernimont; sons: Jeff Wernimont and wife Kelly, Cory Wernimont; grandson: Jordan; mother Virginia Wernimont; sisters: Carol Kramper (Ralph), Sharon Becker (Jeff), Shele Blum (Scott); brothers: Dan Wernimont (Leah), Al Wernimont (Kris); and many nieces and nephews.

Craig was preceded in death by his father, Wilfred Wernimont and nephew, Weston Wernimont.

Craig will be remembered by everyone for his devotion and loyalty to his family, his kindness, patience, generosity, and unwavering passion for sports. He will also be remembered for his uncanny ability to fix just about anything that was broken. Craig will be greatly missed, and a void will be left in the hearts of his loving family and friends forever.
Services were held on Monday, Sept. 12 at Holy Cross Catholic Church in Omaha, Nebraska.

Memorials will be directed by the family. Condolences and memorials can be sent in memory of Craig Wernimont to West Center Chapel 7805 West Center Road, Omaha, Neb. 68124.

Aldon "All" Wernimont
Aldon “Al” Mark Wernimont, son of Wilfred and Virginia (Steinkamp) Wernimont, was born on December 23, 1953, in Corning, Iowa. After an almost 4 year battle with pancreatic cancer, Al passed away on November 6, 2011, at the Cass County Hospice Center surrounded by his wife and children. Al was 57 years old.

Al grew up in rural Cumberland where he attended grade school in Grant and Cumberland. In 1970, his family moved to Atlantic, and Al attended Atlantic High School, graduating in 1972. While at AHS, Al received much joy from being a member of the football, wrestling and track teams. He won many local and state awards and recognitions in football and wrestling. Al went on to attend the University of Northern Iowa under a football scholarship. His love for farming brought him back to the land after one year at UNI.

On July 29, 1978, Al was united in marriage to the love of his life, Kristi Ann Hensley, in the SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Atlantic. Al and Kris spent their entire married life south of Atlantic, on the farm, raising their children. Al was a dedicated family man; decisions in his life were guided by his faith and love for his wife and children. He was also a respected farmer and steward of the land.

Al was an active member of SS Peter and Paul Catholic Church and volunteered his time on the finance and trustee committees. Al was a founding member of the Atlantic Junior Sports Association, encouraging the success of the youth padded football program. He volunteered at AHS athletic functions, particularly the detailed set up of the hurdle events.

Al always looked forward to the summer breaks taking his family to the mountains of Colorado. He also had many memorable moments with his brothers and sisters at Lake of the Ozarks. Every morning, Al could be found drinking coffee in his chair next to Kris before heading to the farm. He was passionate about farming and specifically enjoyed calving season, as it was a time for “new life.” Al also received much joy from playing cards with “the guys,” attending his children’s events, and fishing and watching his beloved Bears with Bryce. He was also looking forward to becoming a grandpa in March.

In the spring of 2008, the community gave an outpouring of emotional and financial support to Al and his family at the event known as the Wernimont Rally. This gave Al the much needed emotional lift to move through these past years of treatment with hope. During his time of treatment and doctor visits at various hospitals, Al would often escape to the healing garden for quiet and calmness. Last year, the family chose to give the financial support back to the community for the creation of a healing garden, which will be incorporated into the new addition and renovations on the Cass County Health System campus. Al’s intention is the garden will be for the community what the Wernimont Rally was for him: a physical reminder of hope for all of us, as we are a community of support to one another, and we are never alone. Memorials will be given to CCHS for the development of the Healing Garden.

He was preceded in death by his son, Weston Wernimont; father, Wilfred Wernimont; brother, Craig Wernimont; and father and mother-in-law, Bill and Charlotte Hensley.

He is survived by his wife, Kris of Atlantic; four children, Maggie Muller (Kelly) of Griswold, Sarah Wernimont of Omaha, Anna Wernimont, a sophomore at Loras College in Dubuque and Bryce Wernimont, a junior at Atlantic High School; his mother, Virginia Wernimont of Atlantic; one brother, Dan Wernimont (Leah) of Pocahontas; three sisters, Carol Kramper (Ralph) of Omaha, Sharon Becker (Jeff) of Ames and Shele Blum (Scott) of Ames; three brothers-in-law, Kerry Hensley (Patti) of Massena, Tony Hensley of Massena and Andy Hensley (Jana) of Carson; two sisters-in-law, Deb Sova (Ron) of Omaha and Tracy Daugherty (Dan) of Massena; and numerous nieces and nephews.

The family of Al wishes to express their gratitude for all acts of kindness shown to them during Al’s cancer fight and in this time of sorrow. Please join the family for a luncheon at the church parish center following services at the cemetery.

A prayer service will be held at 5:30 p.m., Thursday, November 10, 2011, at SS Peter & Paul Catholic Church with visitation following from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. also at the church.


A mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:30 a.m., Friday, November 11, 2011, at SS Peter & Paul Catholic Church in Atlantic, Iowa. Interment will be in the SS Peter & Paul Catholic Cemetery in Atlantic.
