Dennis "Woody" Widhalm

Dennis Elwin "Woody" Widhalm, 90, of Ozark passed away on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 in his home. Woody was born on April 22, 1929 in Humphrey, Nebraska, the youngest of 14 children born to Leopold and Walburga (Russler) Widhalm. In his younger days he worked alongside his siblings on the family farm. He married Ruth Lucille (Kluever) Widhalm on October 26, 1953. Woody was a 38 year Air Force Veteran. Following his service career, he was employed by America West Airlines. He and Ruth retired to this area to enjoy seasonal changes in the Ozarks. Woodworking kept him busy, and he enjoyed playing cribbage. Surviving are three children, Todd Widhalm of Sioux City, Iowa, Debra Charondo of San Francisco, California, and Mark Widhalm, also of Sioux City, Iowa; one grandchild, Andre Charondo; and a sister, Anastasia Keller of Columbus, Nebraska. He had been a member of St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church in Ozark for the past two decades. A Funeral Mass will be held for Woody at 8:30 AM Friday, May 31, 2019 at St. Joseph the Worker Catholic Church in Ozark, with Father Scott Sunnenburg officiating.

Woody was such a great guy. Saw him almost every Saturday at the 4pm mass. Anyone from Humphrey Ne has to be great. My sister Helen Witt went to school with one of Woody's brothers in Humphrey. Later my parents moved to Columbus, Ne. I felt it was a privilege knowing Woody and Ruth. I'm sure he is in a much better place free of pain. I could see his breathing was labored . He will be remembered in my prayers and will have a mass said for him Pat Gibbons
