David Anthony Boeckman

David A. Boeckman was born September 16, 1957, in Sacred Heart Hospital, Yankton, South Dakota. He was the first of five children born to Rudy and Betty (Brown) Boeckman. Dave grew up in Wynot, Nebraska, attending Wynot Public School and graduating in 1975. After high school he relocated to Norfolk, Nebraska and worked in Madison, Nebraska at the pork production facility there.

From the pork production plant, Dave moved on to work for his stepfather Lambert (Butch) Vrba for many years as a farmhand. This had the added benefit of access to wild game, which Dave loved.  He was a phenomenal cook, and could create all manner of wild game dishes as well as traditional breakfasts, cook for fish frys, and all kinds of dishes in between.

In 1987 Dave met Carlene Mathers. They relocated to Phoenix for a short time, then returned to Wynot where Dave ran his father’s bar for a couple of years. He and Carleen moved to the Lincoln, Nebraska, area, where they eventually married and had four children. Dave found work in the area of his first interest, that of lawn and tree maintenance. He loved working with trees; he was able to tell a tree species by looking at a piece of bark or a leaf. He worked as a Lincoln city arborist until his health no longer allowed it.

Dave’s health began to decline and he had to give up many of the pursuits that gave him pleasure in life. Relentless arthritis restricted much of his movement, and congestive heart failure began to take away his energy and ability to breathe normally. He had several trips to the hospital, always beating the odds, until the last one. Friday morning, April 30, Dave quietly and peacefully left this world to join his father and brother in Heaven.

Dave is survived by his children, Brandon (Natalie), Troy, Keesha (Nate Brooks), and Cole Boeckman, all of Lincoln, Nebraska; his mother; Betty Vrba of Wynot, Nebraska; brother; Brad (Dawn) of Lincoln, Nebraska; sisters; Lori Coffman of Yankton, South Dakota; Brenda Boeckman of Lincoln, Nebraska; and Kim (Patrick) Henry of Council Bluffs, Iowa; girlfriend; Vickie Stueck, aunt; Karen Melton of Omaha, Nebraska and a loving family of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his brother; Steve, father; Rudy, stepfather; Lambert (Butch) Vrba, grandparents, 2 brother-in-laws; Greg Donner and Jeff Coffman, 6 uncles, and 4 aunts.

“The wheel in the sky keeps turning; don’t know where I’ll be tomorrow.”

Maurtae Lamont Cole

God blessed us with Maurtaé (Grown Man) Lamont Cole. He was born July 1, 2011, in Bellevue, Nebraska.

Maurchupie, as his dad would call him, was a fourth-grader at Lothrop Elementary. He enjoyed sports and playing video games. He had BIG DREAMS of doing whatever his big brother was doing. We would ask Maurtaé, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” He would say, “I want to work at Applebee’s like Lamont.”

Maurtaé loved being a big brother to Maurjon. He made sure no one in the house could say or do anything to his baby brother. But not least, Maurtaé loved being with his friends. No matter what he did, it had to involve his buddies. They all loved and looked up to him. If you met Maurtaé, you couldn’t help but love him; his shyness, his smile, and his personality always brightened up the whole room.

Maurtaé will forever be missed by many. Although he’s gone in body, he will remain in our hearts forever.

Maurtaé Lamont Cole departed this life on April 20, 2021 in St. Louis, Missouri.

Those left to cherish his memories: parents Jontae Palmore, Maurice Cole, and Adrian Turner; brothers, Maurjon, Maurice Jr., Nashawn, and Armani; Big sister, Keonna; niece, Lamiya; uncles and aunts, Jamar Palmore, Jay (Alice) Johnson, Pallas, Lee, Mareiko, and Marissa; grandparents, Vicki Palmore, Pallas Cole, and Darlene Turner; godparents Lafessa and Ramon Patterson and a host of cousins (Jaisiah), other relatives and friends.

Neville Glen Anson (Neve)

Neville (Neve) Glen Anson passed away peacefully at home on April 26, 2021 at the age of 91.  He was born in White River, SD on March 9, 1930.  He was the fifth of nine children born to Glen Marvin and Frances Marguerite Watson Anson.  He married Dorothy Marie Pfanstiel on December 27, 1950 at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Osmond, NE. They were married for 63 years before Dorothy’s passing in 2014.  To their union were born 5 children.  He was a member of Mount Olive Lutheran Church.

Neve spent his early years in Johnstown, Royal & Osmond, NE. As a child, he often found fossils in the fields where he helped his family farm on what later was discovered to be the Ashfall Fossil Beds near Royal, NE. He was called to serve his country overseas in the Army in Korea shortly after he & Dorothy were married.

Neve’s character was that of the greatest generation. Born at the beginning of the Great Depression, the work ethic he developed would accompany him beyond his 90th birthday, as he would continue to mow his own yard & clear his driveway of snow until he chose to move in with his son, Jeff. His frugality dictated his daily habit of wasting nothing & conserving all he could. That frugality, along with his personal discipline provided his children’s security & well-being, as well as a comfortable life and retirement for himself & Dorothy.  Respect, consideration and generosity were always forefront in every relationship he had throughout his life. He was always willing to help, pitch in, or even gift support wherever his heart led him.  Neve was a true friend and a good neighbor and a wonderful father & role model to his children, grandchildren & sometimes perfect strangers.

Neve is survived by his daughter Neva Anson (Jack) Mielke and his sons Gregory (Paula), Mark & Jeffrey  Anson; his sister Alice Anson Mahood, sister-in-law Elizabeth Pfanstiel (Dwaine) Johnson, brothers-in-law Charles (Delores) Pfanstiel, & Grant (Charlene) Pfanstiel. Also survived by his grandchildren Joseph, Wendy, Makayla (Jon) Blake & Daniel (Emily) Mielke; Melissa Anson (Evan) Graff & Erik Anson; Clint (Beth) Osler, Ryan (fiancé Tori) & Connor (Morgan) Anson; Tom (Kari) Giles, Jeremy (Jill) Giles, Cassondra Anson (Jeff) Meyers, David (Alicia) Anson; great grandchildren Burklee Mielke, Lily Anson, Jackson Giles, Emalee Giles, Avery Clawson, Harrison Meyers, Larissa Prudhome, Isaiah Caldwell, Alexis Anson; 2 great great grandchildren, Kendall & Gracelyn Greenwood; and many nieces, nephews, friends, neighbors and loved ones.

Neve was preceded in death by his parents, his infant daughter Lynneva, mother & father-in-law, Harry & Emma Pfanstiel, his brother-in-law Dwaine Johnson; his brothers & sisters-in-law David (Lucy), Delbert (Phyllis) & Arvin (Ruth) Anson; his sisters and brother-in-law Audree Anson (Orville) Bahr, Lucille Anson & Rosalee Anson (Jerry) Taylor.
