SIGOURNEY-Victor Menke, age 76, of Sigourney, passed away Wednesday, November 29, 2017.
Victor was born January 8, 1941, at home near Houghton, Iowa, to Alvin and Anna (Woerdeman) Menke and graduated from St. Elizabeth High School in 1960. He then served in the Iowa National Guard. On September 7, 1963, he was united in marriage to Kathleen Weber at Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in rural Harper. Victor farmed in the Harper area and was a crop adjuster for many years, most recently with RCIS. He was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Sigourney and the Knights of Columbus. Victor enjoyed hunting, fishing, Hawkeye sporting events, SK football and feeding cattle, but he got the most enjoyment out of being a big part of his grandchildren's lives.
Survivors include his wife: Kathleen of Sigourney; four children: Ann Marie (David) Orham of Savage, Minnesota, Christine (Adel Bozorgzadeh) Menke of Hopkinton, Massachusetts, Cynthia (Dan) Luloff of Eden Prairie, Minnesota and Stephen (Megan) Menke of Harper; 11 grandchildren: Rebekka Orham, Ryan Orham, Paige Roff, Noah Orham, Sam Menke, Eric Orham, Jake Luloff, Owen Menke, Zachariah Bozorgzadeh, Dillon Menke and Lucas Menke; one great grandchild: Matthew Orham and four siblings: Jane Clarahan of Iowa City, Eileen Clarahan of Marion, Don Menke of Macon, Missouri and Mary Ann Bohr of Columbia, Missouri. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister-in-law: Betty Menke.

Funeral Mass will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 2, 2017, at St. Mary Catholic Church in Sigourney, with Rev. Charles Fladung officiating. Burial will be at Holy Trinity Cemeteries - St. Elizabeth Cemetery in Harper. Visitation will be from 4:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. on Friday, December 1, 2017, at the church, where there will be a wake service at 4:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, memorials will go to feed the hungry. Powell Funeral Home and Cremation Service in Sigourney is caring for Victor and his family. Tributes may be made at www.powellfuneralhomes.com.
