Louis Henry Boell

March 11, 1929 — August 27, 2012

Louis Henry, son of Paul and Helen (Baumhover) Boell, was born March 11, 1929, at Carroll, Iowa. Louis was baptized in 1930 at St. Paul's Lutheran Church. He attended country school north of Manning through the eighth grade and then worked on his family's farm. Louis entered the United States Army in March of 1951 and served in Alaska driving trucks that transported nuclear weapons. Following his honorable discharge in March of 1953 he returned to the area of his youth and began farming. On December 15, 1954, Louis was united in marriage with Lucille Agnes Lamp at Zion Lutheran Church in Manning. One daughter, Brenda, was welcomed to this family. The couple farmed southeast of Manning and then north of Manilla. In 1983 Louis retired from farming and held a number of jobs in the area, including R.L. Kraft, M.A.C., Henningson Construction, Aspinwall Co-Op and RJV Trucking. He finally retired to his farm at the age of 80. Louis was a member of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Manilla. He was active on the ceremonial teams and served as commander for the American Legion and Veterans of Foreign Wars posts in Manning and Manilla. Louis always had a soft spot in his heart for animals, especially dogs and horses. Along with his wife and daughter, he was actively engaged in the Manilla Rough Riders Saddle Club, serving as its President. On Monday, August 27, 2012, Louis died suddenly and unexpectedly at his home near Manilla, Iowa. He was 83 years, 5 months and 16 days of age.
