Loren Andrew Schaust, age 89, of Delano, went to be with his perfect partner Dorothy, and son Loren Robert, Monday, April 29, 2013.
A devoted husband, father, grandfather, and great grandfather, Loren was always willing to lend a helping hand and provide a quick pearl of wisdom.
Loren was a lifelong resident of Delano. A proud and humble man with a twinkle in his eye, he was always ready to share a story or a quick little phrase, i.e. “if it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing right.” He provided a great foundation for his family through his work ethic and lifestyle.
A wonderful resource of wisdom, Loren was also a great promoter of common sense to his children and grandchildren. He was always willing to listen, and full of encouragement.
He is survived by his loving children, Donna Nesbitt (Richard Tucker), Doug (Becky) Schaust, and Bonnie (Steve) Meyer; grandchildren Brandon Nesbitt (Kristy Johnson), Amber Nesbitt, Robert Schaust, Ryan Schaust, and Andrew Meyer; and great-grandson Kadin Nesbitt.
Mass of Christian Burial took place Friday, May 3 at 11:30 a.m. at St. Peter Catholic Church in Delano. The Rev. Paul Kammen was the celebrant for the Mass. Interment followed at Calvary Cemetery in Delano.
Visitation was Thursday, May 2 from 4 to 8 p.m. at Martha’s Hall of St. Peter Catholic Church, with a 3:30 p.m. rosary, and a 7:30 p.m. prayer service. Visitation continued Friday at St. Peter’s for one hour prior to the Mass.
Loren’s grandchildren and great-grandchild were his casket bearers.
Arrangements were by the Iten Funeral Home in Delano.
