Gale E. Rundell

March 5, 1938 — December 23, 2013

Gale E., son of Charles and Ethel (Stoner) Rundell, was born March 5, 1938 on a farm near Mt. Rose, South Dakota. Dale graduated from high school and then lived and worked in Sioux City, Iowa. He served in the United States Army and was honorably discharged in 1967. On April 9, 1967 Gale was united in marriage with Barbara Sonksen in Sioux City. Barbara had moved to Sioux City from Manning where her grandparents still resided. Gale and Barbara adopted a son David and the family lived and worked in Sioux City. In 1975 they moved to Omaha, Nebraska where Gale worked many years at Mutual of Omaha in the Materials Management Department. Gale was very interested in politics and faithfully read the Omaha World Herald Public Pulse, having at least one letter published. When he was younger and healthier he attended huge family reunions in South Dakota every two years. Gale and Barbara were faithful members of the Midlands Baptist Temple in Omaha. After Barbara's death in 1993, Gale continued to live in Omaha. He died at the Florence Home in Omaha on Monday, December 23, 2013 at the age of 75 years. Preceding him in death are his parents; wife; sister Joyce Wagner; two brothers Lowell Rundell and Keith Rundell. Gale is survived by his son David Rundell and wife Tara and two grandchildren of Sultan, Washington; brother in law Adam Wagner of Pennsylvania; sisters in law Catherine Rundell of Bloomington, Minnesota and Hazel Rundell Hanson of Bemidji, Minnesota; nieces and nephews, including Daniel Rundell of Bemidji, Minnesota; other relatives and friends. There will be a service at Midlands Baptist Temple in Omaha on Sunday, January 5, 2014, and then his cremated remains will be buried in the Manning Cemetery next to his wife.
