Clelland Rush Darr
Clelland Rush Darr, 96, died Tuesday, January 13, at the Homestead in Anoka.

Son of Russ and Hattie Darr, Clelland was born December 13, 1918, on a farm near Webb, IA. His childhood was spent on farms where Clell grew to love the land and farming became his life's calling.

Following graduation from Ayrshire High School, Clell married the love of his life, Ellen Rouse. Together they shared 77 years of marriage and farm life in Iowa and Minnesota.

In addition to his wife Ellen, Clelland is survived by their children: Mardell (Wayne) Truog of Emmetsburg, IA; Darrell (Sharon Lee) of Dodge Center; Dennie (Shirley) of Rushford; Sharon (Dick) Gibbs of Wynantskill, NY; and Virginia (Tom) Ritchey of Andover, Minn. Deeply loved and mourned by 18 grandchildren, and many great and great-great grandchildren.

Clell was preceded in death by son Richard, granddaughter Mary Ann Darr and siblings Cleo (Harold) Olson, Clayton (Dorothy), and Lurvene (Darrell) King.

Clell's family and friends mourn his passing. As husband, father, farmer and friend, Clelland was a respected role model to whom anyone could aspire. He was a good and kind man, the best of men.

A Celebration of Life will be held May 16th at the Community Center in Dodge Center. Visiting hour starting at 11; Memorial Service at noon, followed by reception and interment of ashes at the Riverside Cemetery in Dodge Center.
