    John Henry Nordmann, died September 29, 2020, at home after surviving several years of bad health.


    He was born November 15, 1935 at St. Joseph’s Hospital in Breese, Illinois, the son of the late Frank and Christine (Tebbe) Nordmann. He married Marilene Kunz on February 7, 1959, and she survives.


    Also surviving are his children: Mary C. (Wayne) Madson, New Baden, Illinois, Dennis R. (Debbie) Nordmann, Trenton, Illinois, and Roseann E. Nordmann, Trenton, Illinois; his grandchildren: Vincent (Angel) Madson, John (Stacy) Madson, Wayne Madson, Jr., Kyle (fiancée Brittany Noll) Nordmann, Amy (Scott) Kaltenbronn, William (special friend, Essie Meeker) Nordmann, Emily Nordmann and Tyler Nordmann; his great-grandchildren, William Madson, Skylar Kaltenbronn and Rylie Kaltenbronn; his sister, Jane Diesen; his brother, Virgil Nordmann; his sisters-in-law: Jane Kruep, Isabel Hull, Emma Nordmann, Letty Rathmann, and Karen Kunz; his brother-in-law: Frank Kunz; and nieces and nephews.

    John was a life-time farmer, most of it as a dairy farmer. He passed his love of farming to his son and grandsons.


    He liked country music and old time western tv shows. Also, he liked to work in his shop doing repairs or just sitting and visiting with whoever came that day.
