Neal Francis Lemonds

Visitation: Friday, March 29, 2024, 2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M., Peterson Mortuary, 212 S. Locust Street, Glenwood, Iowa.

Neal Francis Lemonds was born to John and Esther Lemonds December 22, 1949. He lived his entire childhood and early years in Glenwood, Iowa. Neal graduated from Glenwood high school class of 1968. He was a member of the high school band and baseball team and was also Homecoming King. Neal married his high school sweetheart Suzanne Lemonds (Sell) shortly after graduation that led to an incredible 55 year marriage. He also served on the Glenwood Volunteer Fire Department as an EMT. Neal is survived by two children and eight grandchildren. Daughter Amie and her three children Autumn, Blake, and Brock of Sacramento, California and son Jeff and his wife Michelle and their children Maddie, Hayden, Grace, Avery, and Tommy of St Michael, Minnesota.

One of Neal’s greatest passions was following his grandchildren’s sports and academic accomplishments. He was always watching either in person or via online streams and sending texts of encouragement.

Neal worked in the industrial laundry industry for over forty years and established lifelong friendships with many of his co-workers in multiple states. He was always willing to pass on his knowledge of the industry to the next generation.

Neal was a loving husband, father, and grandfather who loved spending time with family and friends golfing, playing card games, and ending the week with Friday night pizza. Neal impacted so many lives for everyone’s betterment through faith, family, and hard work and he will truly be missed.

Interment to be held at a later date.

Memorial donations may be directed to: First Congregational U.C.C. in Glenwood, Iowa or Open Door Mission in Omaha, Nebraska.

    We are so very sorry for your loss. We have such fond memories of living across the street from Neil and Suzie in Menomonee Falls. Neil was so kind, friendly and funny. I recall a funny conversation about dog names and how he didn’t want to be calling a dog with a super girlie name! Our prayers are with you all during this difficult time. May all the wonderful memories of him help you through. Tammy and Jeff Kops
