Obituary for Bernard Demuth

BERNARD NICHOLAS DEMUTH was born on December 30, 1922 to Joseph and Lucy (Heger) Demuth in Gray Township, Pipestone County, Minnesota. He was raised on a farm north of Hatfield, Minnesota and attended elementary school in Hatfield, and the Pipestone High School, graduating in 1940. On June 1, 1948 he was united in marriage to Bernece Boomgaarden at St. Leo Catholic Church in Pipestone. In 1950 they moved to a farm in Burke Township where he farmed until the early 1980s. He remained on the farm where he pursued his hobby of woodworking. In October of 2017 they moved from the farm to their current residence in Pipestone where he remained until recently. After suffering an injury, he entered the care of the Good Samaritan Communities of Pipestone and from there the Pipestone County Hospice House in Pipestone. He passed away peacefully there on Sunday, September 22, 2019 at that age of 96 years, eight months, and 23 days.

Bernard was passionate about his hobby of woodworking, using his big hands to make delicate and precise pieces of furniture, especially baby cradles, and many other unique pieces. He also enjoyed reading, gardening, and traveling to visit family.

He is lovingly remembered by his wife, Bernece of Pipestone; six children, Linda Beggerly of Troy, Virginia, Carol (Bill) Rollins of Tuscon, Arizona, Steve (Laura) Demuth of Decorah, Iowa, Roger (Gail) Demuth of Portland, Oregon, Tom (Roxane) Demuth of Vesta, Minnesota, and Rosie (Jerry) Nold of Brookings, South Dakota; 13 grandchildren, Kathryn (Scott) Corbin, Brian (Candice) Beggerly, Jennifer Nulty, Sarah Beggerly, Bathsheba (Alex) Demuth, Gabriel Demuth, Joel (Amber) Demuth, Rosie (David) Petty, Crystal Demuth, Dustin Demuth, Mary Nold, Emily Nold, and Josie Nold; three great-grandchildren, Victoria Beggerly, Evelyn Nulty, and Olivia Beggerly; one sister-in-law, MariLyn Boomgaarden; and numerous nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother and father; his sisters, Florence Haberman and Irene Jensen; and one son-in-law, James Beggerly.
