Maynard W. Heman

Maynard W. Heman was born in 1928 and passed away on December 7, 2022, at 94.

Maynard H Heman.jpgMaynard lived his entire life in the Femme Osage Valley area. He loved farming, grew up farming, and continued that profession until he moved into a nursing facility at the age of 90. Maynard had no desire for travel, but after a few trips, he still claimed his most scenic view was his cornfield across the road from his front porch.  Maynard was a lifelong member of the Femme Osage United Church of Christ and trusted in the Lord for all things.

He raised three daughters on his farm and enjoyed teaching them all the facets of country living.  Denise Stewart (Gary), Karen LaRue (Skip), and Lynette Heman will forever be grateful for the humility and standards Maynard instilled in them.

Maynard is preceded in death by his parents, Elvin and Clara Heman (Laumeier); two sisters, Darlene Bade and Margie Heman; two wives, Ida Mae (Bollman) and Ruth (Struckhoff); sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law.  He is survived by his three daughters, many family members, in-laws, nieces, nephews and friends.
