Glenn Todd
Glenn H. Todd, 78, of Holstein, Iowa passed away Tuesday December 4, 2007 at the Buena Vista Medical Center in Storm Lake, Iowa.

Services were held on December 8 at the Holstein United Methodist Church, with Pastor Todd Schlitter officiating. Burial was in the Holstein Cemetery.

Glenn was born to George and Mary (Meister) Todd on December 21, 1928 on the family farm in rural Washta, Iowa. He attended country school at Douglas Center and high school in Cushing. Glenn started farming at the age of eighteen and was named by the Farm Bureau as Iowa's youngest Farmer in 1947. He loved working the soil and raising livestock. He enjoyed all the seasons of farming - especially the summer, when he tended the new crop and fall, when he gathered the bountiful harvest. Glenn and Arliss moved to Holstein in 1984, and he continued to farm until his retirement in 1993, then farmed in his heart until his death.

Glenn was united in marriage to Arliss Ann Bendixen on December 29, 1953 in Schleswig, Iowa. Three children were born to this union: Cindy, Craig and Corine.

His family will always remember his influence in their lives through his strength, character, integrity and wonderful sense of humor.

He is lovingly remembered by wife of 53 years, Arliss, and his children - Cindy (Doug) Barry of Holstein, Iowa, Craig (Gloria) Todd of Washta, Iowa, and Corine (Patrick) Krapfl of Cedar Park, Texas; Eleven grandchildren - Brian (Sarah) Clark, David Clark, Scott (Natasha) Clark, Jodi (Evan) Johnson, Cammy (Shawn) Stricklett, Matthew, Stacey and Larson Todd, Shane and Chad Pierce, Cassandra Krapfl; three step - grandchildren, Anthony, Naomi and Scott Krapfl; seven great grandchildren - Devin, Samantha, Adrianna, Alexa, Christian, Allie and Madeline; three sisters, Irene (Delbert) Kohn of Cushing, Betty (Pete) Paulsen of Holstein, Mary Lou (Norman) Carstensen of Ida Grove; father-in-law Raymond Bendixen; brother-in-law Jerry Bendixen and nieces, nephews and extended family.
