Mark Haupert, 84, What Cheer

WHAT CHEER — Mark Haupert, 84, of What Cheer, died Jan. 19, 2013, at the Veterans Home in Marshalltown.

He attended Catholic school in Harper and later enlisted in the U.S. Army. Mark served two years during the Korean War. Mark, like most farmers, worked from sunrise to sunset. He valued honesty, integrity, honor and most of all faith. Mark made certain he and his family attended Mass each Sunday.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his wife, Roberta; a sister, Irene Haupert; and a brother-in-law, Eugene Reed.

Mass of a Christian burial will be 10:30 a.m. Thursday at the St. Mary Catholic Church in Sigourney. Burial will be in Sixteen Cemetery at Thornburg.

Visitation will be from 5-8 p.m. Wednesday at the Holland-Coble Funeral Home in What Cheer. A rosary will be recited at 5 p.m.
