Henkes, Dale (12/05/2012)

Dale Henkes, age 69, of Winona, passed away on Saturday, December 1, 2012, at home with his family by his side.

Dale was born on July 12, 1943, to Howard and Frieda (Koopman) Henkes on the family farm in Harpers Ferry, Iowa (rural Waukon). He attended Fairview School #5 Allamakee County, Iowa. He graduated from Seneca High School, Seneca, Wis., in 1961.

On April 24, 1971, he was united in marriage to Donna Myers in Prairie du Chien, Wis. To this union two sons were born: Denny and John. In 1976, he founded Dale’s Carpet Cleaning in Winona. In 1983, he and wife, Donna, founded Discount Liquor in Winona. Dale served in the Wisconsin National Guard for 31 years. He enjoyed hunting, bowling, farming, gardening, flowers, and the Green Bay Packers.

Dale was preceded in death by his parents, Howard and Frieda Henkes; brothers: Verdene and Howard Jr.; sisters, Margie Henkes and Gertie Kraus and his favorite pet and loyal companion, Molly.

He is survived by his wife of 41 years, Donna; sons: Dennis “Denny” and De Lyle “John”; brothers: Claison and wife, Pat, Shepherdstown, W. Va., and Maurice and wife Joanne, Eastman, Wis.; a sister Betty Monroe, Winona, Minn., and many nieces and nephews.

We would like to give a special thank-you to Winona Area Hospice staff and volunteers for their help and support given to Dale and our family during this time.

Memorials may be directed to Winona Area Hospice, 175 East Wabasha, Winona, Minn., or Souper Thursday at First Congregational Church, 161 West Broadway, Winona, Minn.

God saw he was getting tired

And a cure was not to be,

So He put His arms around him

And whispered, “Come with Me.”

With tearful eyes we watched him suffer

And saw him fade away

Although we loved him dearly

We could not make him stay.

A golden heart stopped beating

Hard working hands to rest,

God broke our hearts to prove to us

He only takes the best.
