Marvin L. Wergeland, 88, of Hardy, passed away on Tuesday, January 9, 2024, in the Long Term Care Unit of the Humboldt County Memorial Hospital.

Marvin LeRoy Wergeland, the son of Miller and Bernice (Reed) Wergeland was born on June 10, 1935, in Hardy, Iowa.  He attended school in the Renwick School District, graduating with the class of 1953.  He was united in marriage to Dolores D.

The thing Marvin loved doing most was farming.  In his free time, he enjoyed spending time with the family, fishing at the cabin in Minnesota, and traveling with Dolores in winters during retirement.  Marvin also loved watching his favorite team, the Iowa Hawkeyes, playing football or basketball.  He was a member of a bowling league and a neighborhood 500 card club.  He also enjoyed playing cards with his family and reading his farming magazines and joke books.  He had a great sense of humor and enjoyed telling jokes. 

Marvin served as a member and Board President of the Boone Valley Community School District Board of Education for many years, as a member and President of the Hardy Cooperative Elevator Board, as a member of the Hardy Trinity Lutheran Church Council, as a member of the Humboldt County Memorial Hospital Board and as a member of the Humboldt County Compensation Board.
