Glenn W. Ebenhoh -- Claremont

CLAREMONT -- The funeral for Glenn W. Ebenhoh will be at 2 p.m. Tuesday at First Presbyterian Church in Claremont. Burial will be at the Rice Lake Cemetery in Claremont.

Mr. Ebenhoh, 82, of Claremont, died Friday (April 8, 2005) at Rochester Methodist Hospital.

He was born June 27, 1922, on the family farm in Claremont Township in the house the family still owns. He married Donajean Vosburgh on June 25, 1944. He was a Mason and a Shriner, and a life member of Elks Lodge 1395. He was a lifelong member of First Presbyterian Church in Claremont, where he served as an elder and trustee for many years. He served on the Dodge County extension board for three terms, was chairman of the ASCS board for nine years and served 36 years on the Dodge County fair board. He also served on the Claremont Creamery board for six years. He served on the District 201 school board for 18 years and owned and operated the first school bus service in Claremont.

He spent 10 years on the Dodge County zoning board, and was a director of the Norwest Bank board for 19 years. His hobby was work and his passion was land improvement. In 1957, he organized a group of landowners to drain the overflow water from Rice Lake into the North Zumbro branch of the Zumbro River and provided tile outlets for hundreds of acres. In his lifetime, he installed over one million feet of tile and thousands of feet of waterways and filter strips and terraces on his farms.

Survivors include his wife, Donajean, of Claremont; a son, Daniel Ebenhoh of Claremont; two daughters, Vicki (Lowell Berge) Ebenhoh of Dodge Center and Connie Bagley of Rochester; 10 grandchildren; a great-grandson; and a sister, Ethel (Robert) Klein of Owatonna. He was preceded in death by a son and a sister.


Friends may call from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. Monday at Michaelson Funeral Home in Owatonna and an hour before the service Tuesday at the church.
