Obituary for Eugene Raymond Yerhart

Eugene 'Gene' Raymond Yerhart was born to Emil and Gertrude Yerhart in Waterville Township, MN on January 26, 1939. He was the youngest of 10 children. Gene grew up in Waterville Township, where he attended school. Gene worked on the family farm before joining the United States Army in 1956. Following his honorable discharge, he returned to the family farm for a time, before moving to Algora, Iowa to work in the Hormel Company. Gene worked with Hormel for many years before retiring to the Mankato area. After retirement, Gene worked as a courier at the Taylor Corporation. In addition to his work as a courier, he provided care for his mother Gertrude until her death. Gene maintained a close relationship with his sister, Irene, especially after the death of their mother. The two lived together and cared for each other until Gene's health declined which lead him to receive care at the Monarch Meadows.
Gene's family would like to give special thanks to the staff at Monarch Meadows for their care and support.
Gene is survived by his sisters, Irene Lynaugh, Agnes Brisbane, Teresa (John) O'Leary; brother-in-law, Steve Ballard; nieces, Victoria (Bryan) Zernechel, Cindy Lynaugh, Gloria (Mike) Mikolai, Susie Brisbane, and many nieces and nephews. Gene was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Marie Ballard, Helene (Clarence) Radel; brothers, Edward Yerhart, Leonard (Barbara) Yerhart, George Yerhart, and Joseph Yerhart.
