Glenn

    Glenn L. Nauman, age 86, of Cannon City, was called to be with his Lord Jesus Christ on Monday, October 26, at St. Lucas Care Center in Faribault, surrounded by his dedicated wife of 61 years and other family members.

    A Celebration of Life service will be held Friday, October 30, 2009 at 11:00 a.m. at St. Lukeís Church, 1100 SW 9th Ave., Faribault, MN 55021. Interment will follow at Maple Lawn Cemetery in Faribault with veterans military rites provided by the Central Veterans Association. Visitation will be held at Boldt Funeral Home, 300 Prairie Ave., Faribault, MN 55021 on Thursday, October 29, 2009 from 3 to 7 p.m. and also in the church for one half hour prior to the services on Friday.

    Glenn was born on October 21, 1923 to Clarence and Florine (Bosshardt) Nauman. He attended Cannon City School through 8th grade and graduated from Faribault High School, class of 1941. Glenn grew up working with his siblings and cousins at the family owned Nauman Bros. Store in Cannon City. He played tuba in the ďNauman Family BandĒ, participated in band and choir while in high school, attended music classes at MacPhail School of Music and was a member of the United States Naval Training Center Great Lakes Choir. He also played piano and organ for his own enjoyment and as a testimony of his lifelong love for music.

    After graduating high school, Glenn graduated Minnesota School of Business. He served in World War II, Pacific Theater, in the United States Navy as Radioman on the USS Boxer Aircraft Carrier.

    On September 18, 1948, Glenn L. Nauman and Beverly J. Morelan were united in marriage at Cannon City Community Church. Glenn owned and operated a diversified farming operation and later purchased Naumanís Farm Supply Store from his father, Clarence, and operated it until his retirement in 1990. His generosity, happy demeanor, and honesty blessed many customers through the years and exemplified his walk with God. At the time of his retirement, the forgiving of all past due bills incurred at Naumanís Store served as a reflection of Godís forgiveness in his own life.

    Glenn served on many boards through the years including those of Cannon City School District #1774, Maple Lawn Cemetery, and Cannon City Community Church. He was also a member of the American Legion and the Gideon International Bible Society.

    Left to cherish Glennís memory are his wife Beve, children Sherry (Richard) Truman of Fairmont, Sue (Robert) Feyereisn of Faribault, and Scott (Lynn) Nauman of Littleton, CO; grandchildren Nathan (Amy) Truman of Faribault, Amber (Jason) Folkmann of Medford, Carissa (Trey) Stevenson of Hutchinson, and Bethany Truman of New Ulm; great-grandsons Peyton Truman, Logan Folkmann, and Easton Truman; sister Catherine Geisler of Faribault, brother Willard (Dorothy) Nauman of Northfield, sister-in-law Elayne (Richard) Lewis of Northfield, brother-in law Robert (Genie) Morelan of Faribault, and many other nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

Memories

Dear Beve & Family, Our heartfelt sympathies are with you all in the passing of Glenn from this life, but we also rejoice with you in the sure knowledge that he is in the loving arms of our Savior. Some of my strongest and fondest memories of growing up in Cannon City are those of the wonderful neighbors we had; and Beve and Glenn are right at the top of that list. My mother, Betty Thompson, who also lives in Blue Earth, sends her love and condolences, too. May God's comfort and strength uphold you all and give you peace.

Memories

As a child I enjoyed going up to Nauman's Farm store. Mr. Nauman was a kind man and always took a minute to visit with us kids. Halloween was a special time. We made sure to stop up to Nauman's. Mr. Nauman wouldn't give us candy, though. Instead he pulled out a jar of pennies and dropped a few into our candy sack while he shared a memory of his childhood. Cannon City was a special place because of neighbors like the Naumans. Heaven will be a little sweeter now with Mr. Nauman's arrival.

Memories

We wish we could be there to join you in mourning our loss and celebrating both Glenn's homecoming and all the ways he has blessed those of us who are left here to continue the work for Him that Glenn was a faithful part of all these years. Know we will be thinking of each of you as you face all that his absence takes from your lives. I feel so fortunate to have grown up close enough that our families could spend much time together and am thankful to have had a little time with Glenn when I was in the States this summer. I know that each time that we are back we will miss the joy he always brought everyone around him, but we are thankful that he gets to experience the eternal joy that heís been looking forward to more and more each day.
