Milo Hugo Schiernbeck

May 26, 1947 — January 19, 2022

Milo Hugo Schiernbeck was born on May 26, 1947 to Hugo and MaryJean (Bengford) Schiernbeck in Carroll, Iowa. He graduated from Ida Grove High School with the class of 1965. Upon graduation, he served in the United States Air Force until his honorable discharge in 1967. He worked for United Builders and later for Midwest Industries in Ida Grove for over 30 years until his retirement in 2004. Following retirement, he worked as a driver for Lewis Family Drug in Ida Grove.

Milo married Wanda Wade on June 6, 2003 at their acreage near Schleswig. He possessed a witty personality and loved conversation. He cherished living on the funny farm, caring for their different animals and tinkering outside. He never missed a Saturday at the sale barn, and he looked forward to teaching his kids and grandkids how to enjoy the full sale barn experience. His grandchildren allowed the world to see a tender side of Milo that no one knew existed. Milo was always willing to lend a helping hand.

Milo passed away at home, surrounded by his family, on January 19, 2022 at the age of 74 years, seven months and 24 days.
