    • Wilbur Charles "Junior" Poggemiller, Jr., 95, of Wapello, died at 5:25 a.m. Wednesday, July 30, 2014, at the Wapello Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in Wapello.

      Born July 24, 1919, in rural Mt. Union, he was the son of Wilbur Charles Sr. and Alice Mae Fye Poggemiller. On December 14, 1940, he married Lucille May Dotson in Newport. She preceded him in death on April 30, 2007.

      Wilbur enlisted in the United States Army in 1945 during World War II, and served as a chaperone for military elite. He was a farmer and truck driver for most of his life in the Des Moines and Louisa County area until 1979 when he semi-retired and moved away from the area.

      He was a past member of Wapello United Methodist Church, Wapello VFW, Fraternal Order of Eagles, and was a founding member of the Louisa County Izaak Walton League. He enjoyed traveling, fishing, telling stories, and pulling pranks. He also loved spending time with his family and friends.

      Survivors include one daughter, Kathy Moore of Wapello, and two sons, Randy (Cyndy) Poggemiller of St. Joseph, Missouri, and Danny (Kerry) Poggemiller of Round Rock, Texas; nine grandchildren; twelve great-grandchildren; and one great-great grandson.

      Besides his wife, he was preceded in death by his parents; one son, Terry; three sisters, Maxine Metzger, Guyla Linder, and Delores Black; and a son-in-law, Steve Moore.

      Cremation has been entrusted to the care of Thielen Crematory.

      The memorial service for Mr. Poggemiller will be 1:00 p.m., Friday, August 8, 2014, at Grandview Community Bible Church with Pastor Darryl Erickson officiating. A private family Burial will be at a later date.
