How Did We Do?

Joseph M. Leffler, 87, of Keokuk, passed away Friday morning, July 27, 2018, at Unity Point Health of Keokuk.

Joseph was born January 2, 1931 in Warsaw, Illinois, the son of Wayne and Bertha Nesbit Leffler.

He and Dorothy were lifetime members of the Southside Boat Club where they tirelessly helped with any project that was under taken. He enjoyed mowing lawns, attending any family function, and his cats. Joe and Dorothy looked forwarded to spending Thanksgiving and Christmas Eve with their neighbors. After his wife died he would also have Sunday morning breakfast with the neighbors.

Joseph is survived by two brothers, Dale and Beverly Leffler of Florence, AZ, and Don and Francis Leffler of Warsaw, IL; four sisters- in- law, Doreen (Bill) Bergman, Wilma (Jessie) Forquer, Zelda (Rockie) Sturm, and Hazel Crowe.
