Berniece Dorothy Segebart

December 3, 1929 — February 14, 2024


Berniece Dorothy Segebart was born on December 3, 1929, in Crawford County, Iowa, the daughter of August and Mahala (Johannsen) Petersen. She was baptized on February 9, 1930, and confirmed at Zion Lutheran Church in Denison. Berniece attended Country School in Hanover Township and later at Denison School. Her early years instilled in her the values of hard work, determination, and a deep sense of community.

On June 19, 1949, Berniece was united in marriage to Carl Segebart at the Zion Lutheran Church. Together they created a life filled with love and cherished memories. Their union was blessed with six children: Terry, Debra, Cole, Jim, Ryan, and Doreen. They made their home on the family farm south of Vail.

Berniece found solace and strength through her strong faith. Over the years, she was an active member of several churches including: Zion Lutheran Church, Trinity Lutheran Church, and finally Our Savior Lutheran Church where she found great fulfillment. Berniece participated in the Trinity Lutheran Ladies Guild,  SNAP Club, and a Sunday School Teacher over the years.

Berniece had various interests that brought joy to her life. She enjoyed bowling, playing cards with loved ones, making cream puffs, dancing to lively tunes and hosting Father's Day picnics. She took pleasure in quilting, sewing, needle work, and creating handmade toys for her beloved grandchildren. She also had a green thumb and took great pride in her gardening endeavors. Berniece loved to travel and she enthusiastically supported the Kansas City Chiefs, Kansas City Royals, and Iowa Hawkeyes, embracing the joy that sports brought to her and those around her.

Berniece passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family on Wednesday, February 14, 2024 at Gracewell-Eventide Lutheran Home in Denison, attaining the age of 94 years, 2 months, and 11 days.
