Born to John and Josephine (Schelle) Reiling on February 15, 1929, in Algona, IA. On October 5th, 1948, Dad married our mom, Ilene Kent at St. Mary’s church in Auburn Iowa. From this union are 6 children. Phyllis, David, Kay, Denny, Carol, & Michelle. 15 Grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren. Dad’s greatest love was farming, playing drums, golfing, and taking care of golf greens after retiring from farming. Father’s Day was his special time to go golfing with his boys, son-in-law’s and grandson’s. Sometimes us girls got a chance to golf with Dad and he would give us a few lessons. He was known for being straight out on the fairway. “Steady Eddie” was his nickname among the other golfers. On July 2nd, 1983, Ilene (Mom) passed away. Dad met 5 years later Marguerite (Marge) Stork who had 6 children. On August 6, 1988, Ed and Marge were united in marriage. We became a family of 12. They enjoyed 33 years of companionship and family fun and laughter. There were times of joy and times of sadness, but we helped each other through those times with love and support. We are a family that doubled in size and quad tripled with grandchildren and great grandchildren. They were the light of Dad and Marge’s life. For 93 years our dad was a loving father with a big heart who loved to have conversations with everyone he met, play cards, sing in the choir, greeter at the churches he attended, and big fan of the Cubs. When the Cubs were playing the Yankee’s dad and Marge had their gloves on. He loved to watch Lawrence Welk, Molly B, and Westerns. Dad touched many lives and will be remembered. We will miss our Dad but know he is forever in our hearts, and we have memories that will keep us laughing and remembering our Dad who showed us Faith is our strength. Thank You Dad!! Ed is survived by his children: Phyllis (Dennis) Cannon, David (Mary Ann) Reiling, Kay Getzfred, Denny (Diane) Reiling, Carol (Virgil) Mohr, Michelle (Alan) Reicks. Our additional family: Gary (Kate) Stork, Doug (Kerry) Stork, & Dean (Cheryl) Stork, son-in-law Bill (Karen) Rohde, Elaine Corsbie, 13 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, & 4, great-great grandchildren.
