Elsmore Indgjer, age 87, lost his battle with pulmonary fibrosis on Tuesday, September 6, 2011, in Green Bay, WI.
He was born March 24, 1924 in Muskegon, Michigan to Arthur and Olga (Mathieson) Indgjer. Elsmore was raised and lived in the Eleva-Strum area nearly all his life. He married Myrtle Myren on March 30, 1944 at St. Paul's Lutheran in Strum. They farmed in the Strum area, and he later retired from the Trempealeau County Highway Department where he had many fond memories with the "boys."
Elsmore is survived by a son, James and daughter-in-law Shirley of Green Bay; two
grandchildren, Nikki (fiancé Andrew Dionne) of Las Vegas, Nevada and Travis (Rachel) Indgjer of Austin, Texas; three great grandchildren, Rowan, Abigail, and Magdalena of Austin; two sisters Eileen Myren and Eldora (Howard) Johnson both of Eau Claire; three brothers, Dennis (Ramona) and Mike (Natalie) Indgjer both of Janesville and Eugene Indgjer of Adams-Friendship; an uncle, Romaine Indgjer of Eau Claire and many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his wife Myrtle in December, 2009; his parents and many great brothers and sisters-in-law.
Elsmore had a kind heart, lived life to the fullest, and always gave more than he received. He will miss the many friends he leaves behind, but will also rejoice in the many friends and loved ones with whom he is reunited.
Funeral services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, September 10, 2011 at Immanuel Lutheran Church, Strum, with Rev. K. D. Taylor officiating. Burial will be in St. Paul’s Cemetery, Strum.
