Dale Reisner

Dale Alvin Reisner passed away at the age of 79 on Thursday, October 17, 2019. He was born April 16, 1940 in West Union, where he graduated from West Union High School. He graduated with an Associates from Upper Iowa University and went to seminary at the Saint Paul School of Theology in Leawood, Kansas. He served as a minister in the United Methodist Church in the Iowa communities of Luverne, Livermore, New Virginia, Medora, Pershing, Attica and Waucoma before his retirement to Traer in 2004 following a stroke.
He married Mary Reisner on April 29, 1983, and raised two stepsons, Russell and Nicholas Ahlhelm.
Dale possessed a strong spirit of community and the church. He took great pride in his family, especially his grandchildren. He enjoyed Iowa Hawkeyes and Green Bay Packers football, and cheered greatly when his beloved Chicago Cubs finally won the World Series. He endeavored to never “mish” a M.A.S.H. episode.
Dale was preceded in death by his father Everett, mother Laura, brothers Donald, Gene and Laverne, and sister Etta Mae Gage. He is survived by his wife Mary, sons Russ (Leslie) and Nick (Gloria), four grandchildren Hannah, Jade, Vanessa and Sienna, and numerous nephews and nieces.  A funeral service will be held at the Traer United Methodist Church at 11 a.m. on Tuesday, October 22. Visitation will be from 9:30 to 11:00 AM prior to the service at the church.
