In Memory of




Obituary for Clarence Erich Niermeier

Clarence E. Niermeier was born on Friday the 13th of October 1949, in Colby, KS. He was the fifth of six children and only son born to Erich and Mildred (Dankert) Niermeier. He passed on to his Heavenly Home and ultimate life goal on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, in Oberlin, KS.

On New Years Eve 1972, Clarence ventured to Herndon, KS, where he met his soul mate, Margaret Stoney. They were married June 3, 1972, and shared almost 51 years. This union was blessed with three sons, Bryan (Tanya), of Edmond, OK, Jayme (Jill), of Ludell and Chris (Kayla) of Ludell; ten grandchildren and four great grandchildren.

Clarence enlisted in the United States Army and proudly served his country for two and a half years.

Clarence was a very hard-working man and loved working beside his wife and sons. His favorite farm chore was fixing fence and watching baby calves play about.

Clarence had great pride in the years that he worked for Atwood Township where, with the help of Norton Correctional Inmates, he built up Lake Atwood again to the beautiful feature it is today. They planted many trees and spent uncountable hours on a mower landscaping the grass.

Clarence’s final request is that everyone learn to live their lives with love of each other and lots of laughter.

A Funeral Service will take place at 11:00 a.m. Monday, March 13, 2023, at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Atwood, KS. Memorials may be made to God’s Little Saints Preschool, Burning Bush Ministries or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and sent in care of Baalmann Mortuary, PO Box 391, Colby, KS 67701.
