Obituary for MYRON "MIKE" CLAUDE WEPFER

On Friday, August 16, 2019, at 2:57 p.m. former Wisconsin resident, Myron Claude Wepfer, passed into eternity at the South Cox Hospital in Springfield, MO, at the age of 86, after hip surgery. Mr. Wepfer was born on August 21, 1932, in Chippewa Falls, WI to Harold and Norma (Zahorka) Wepfer.
On June 27, 1951, he married Ellen J. Thompson, from Berlin, WI. They raised six children, two sons, Rodney and Duane, and four daughters, Lou Anne, Beverly, Laurel, and Kristl.
Myron, known as Mike, worked in several sales businesses in his life, opening Dairyland Realty with his wife in 1955. He loved to fish and would often take his grandchildren out on North Harper Lake, near Rib Lake, Wisconsin, to fish. He also enjoyed music. He and Ellen would often sing together while he played guitar or piano. When he was no longer able to sing or play, he would spend time listening to gospel music. He spent much time reading the Bible and studying biblical history. He was faithful to God, enjoying the Sunday fellowship meetings and gospel meetings.
He was preceded in death by his parents, a baby son, Myron Claude Wepfer, Jr., and brother-in-law, Gordon Hatton. He is survived by his wife of 68 years, Ellen; sons Rodney (Gina) Wepfer of Springfield, MO and Duane (Carla) Wepfer of Marshfield, WI and daughters Lou Anne (Steve) Klefstad of Flagstaff, AZ, Beverly (Brian) Suckow of Hudson, WI, Laurel (Stanley) Shipton of Unity, WI, Kristl (Tom) Kenny of Rudolph, WI; sixteen grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren and 3 great-great-grandchildren, and sister Maureen Hatton.
