Eugene Herman Wedeking, age 84 of Clarksville, was born the son of Emil C. and Louise (Wilken) Wedeking on Nov. 23, 1938, in their home near Clarksville. 

He received his education in the Clarksville Public School and graduated in 1956.

Eugene was united in marriage with Delores M. Reints in 1958 at the First United Church of Christ Pleasant Valley, in rural Clarksville. After marriage they made their home in Clarksville until September 1999 and moved to Nashua. 

Gene had worked for Robert Dempsey Electrician, Williams Oil Company and Oren Bohlen Grinding, all of Clarksville. In 1964, Gene started employment with Mid-American Energy Company, from which he retired in 1996. In 2020, the couple moved to their present home in Clarksville.

Gene had served several terms on the church council and the Clarksville City Council. 

His interests included fishing, gardening, hunting, playing cards and golf. Most of all he loved the time spent with his family — especially the time spent with his grandchildren and great0grandchildren.  

On Saturday, March 11, 2023, Gene passed away at UPH-Allen Memorial Hospital in Waterloo of natural causes. 

He is preceded in death by his parents and brother, Lyle Wedeking.
