Herman G. Schiroo, 96, of Hutchinson, formerly of Stewart, died Saturday, May 9, 2015, at Harmony River Living Center in Hutchinson.
The funeral service was held Wednesday, May 13, at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Fernando, rural Stewart, with the Rev. Aaron Albrecht officiating. Loretta Ahlbrecht was the organist. Adline Kottke played the prelude. Soloist Kimberly Maiers sang “Watching Over Me,” a song she composed.

Herman Gustav Schiroo was born July 26, 1918, in Round Grove Township, McLeod County, the son of Herman and Louise (Buehler) Schiroo. He was baptized Aug. 25, 1918, at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Fernando, where he was confirmed in his faith on April 9, 1933. He grew up in Round Grove Township. He attended country school District 24, which was located west of Fernando.
In January 1942, he was inducted into the U.S. Army. He had attained the rank of corporal when he was honorably discharged on April 24, 1945.
On May 8, 1948, Mr. Schiroo was united in marriage to Margaret Frauendienst at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Penn Township, rural Brownton. Their marriage was blessed with two daughters, Kathleen and LaMae. The couple lived on and operated a dairy farm in Round Grove Township, south of Stewart. He retired in 1979, and in May 1994, he and his wife moved to Hutchinson.
Mr. Schiroo was a lifetime member of St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Fernando, and had served as a council member. He also was a member of DeGree-Fleisch American Legion Post 125 of Stewart.
Mr. Schiroo loved his cows and farming. He thoroughly enjoyed the time spent with his family, especially the grandchildren and great-grandchildren; they always brought a smile to his face, followed by a slight chuckle and a head shake.
In 2005, he moved into the care of the Harmony River Living Center, where he passed away in the early morning hours of Sunday, May 9.
He is survived by his daughters, Kathleen (Delroy) Bierstedt of Gaylord and LaMae (Tom) Maiers of Stewart; grandchildren, Jeremy (Rachel) Bierstedt, Angela (Bert) Honl, Hollie (Kevin) McCann, Kimberly Maiers, Nathan (Tammy) Maiers, Jonathan (Kate) Maiers and Matthew (Melissa) Maiers; great-grandchildren, Jackson and Jayson Bierstedt, Carter, Camden and Cadence Honl, Miles McCann, Nicholas, William, Bennett, Dylan, Alexandra, Jack, Mason and Blake Maiers; sister-in-law, Grace Sabrowsky; nieces; nephews; other relatives; and friends.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Margaret, on April 3, 2001; his parents; and his siblings, Rudolph Schiroo, Lillie Roepke, Herbert Schiroo, Mabel Rickheim, Clarence Schiroo, Edwin Schiroo and Lester Schiroo as a young man.
