Arthur Wolf

Arthur "Art" Wolf, 89, of Cozad, formerly of Gothenburg and Farnam, passed away Sept. 22, 2012, at the Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney.

Art was born on Sept. 2, 1923, at Eustis to William and Bertha (Reiker) Wolf. He was baptized and confirmed at St. John´s Lutheran Church in Eustis. Art attended school at Eustis and was a member of the graduating class of 1941.

Art farmed with his father east of Farnam for a number of years before taking over the farming operation himself.

On Feb. 16, 1961, he married Gladys Miller at Bertrand. The couple resided on the farm for a number of years, eventually moving to Harlingen, Texas, in the late 1960s.

In the years to follow, Art and Gladys enjoyed wintering in Texas and spending summers in Farnam. In 1997, the couple moved to Gothenburg where they lived until 2009, when they moved to Meadowlark Pointe in Cozad.

Golf was always one of Art's passions. He loved to play the game, and excelled at it. While he was a gifted player, he was perhaps an even better teacher. Art spent much time helping others learn the game, including his grandson, patiently answering questions and refining the mechanics of their swings.

When Art wasn't on the golf course, he could be found spending time on his old classic pickup that he restored or cooking some of his favorite German cuisine.

Art was a member of the American Lutheran Church in Gothenburg, the Cozad Elks Club and the Farnam Lions Club.

Art was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Harold and Howard; and two sisters, Wilma VanSalsen and Julia Yardley.

Survivors include his wife, Gladys, of Cozad; two daughters, Geraldine (Larry) Adler, of Overland Park, Kan., Beverly (Del) Van Der Werff, of Curtis; six grandchildren, Jay (Kelly) Van Der Werff, of Kansas City, Kan., Stacy (Jeff) Weller, of San Antonio, Texas, Julie Van Der Werff, of Rapid City, S.D., Jacqueline Hughes, of Salida, Colo., Marty (Dana) Adler, of Olathe, Kan., Jaylyn (Brice) Maddock, of Nixa, Mo.; 14 great-grandchildren; and many other relatives and friends.

Services will be at 10:30 a.m., today, at the St. John's Lutheran Church in Eustis with Pastors Beverly Rautenberg-Panko and Tom Wilson officiating. Burial will be at the East Cemetery at Eustis.

Berryman Funeral Home in Cozad is in charge of arrangements.

A memorial has been established. Condolences may be shared at berrymanfuneralhome.com.
