Albert Elmer was born Sept. 8, 1925 on the family farm in Wyoming to Elmer and Hazel (Brutsman) Storm. In 1943, he graduated from Wyoming High School. He was drafted into the United States Army in 1951. He was very dedicated and proud to have served in the United States Army. He continued his patriotism by joining the Wyoming American Legion Post #251 serving as the post commander for many years. On Oct. 7, 1951 he was united in marriage to the love of his life, Margaret Ann Edwards in Onslow. He tried to find time for activities outside of the farm and was proud to be one of the community members who initiated the startup funds for Little Bear Country Club. He and Margaret enjoyed a good round of golf. Albert also devoted years to serving on the Fair Board for Wyoming. Albert continued farming until 1993 when he retired and they moved to Wyoming. After moving in town, Albert had found a new job driving a school bus for the Midland Community Schools and he spent 10 years driving buses for kids to various events. After retirement, weekends were meant for camping and fishing as much as possible. They developed new friendships with two different groups of camping friends and spent years doing mostly local trips throughout the spring, summer, and fall. His camping friends were an extension of their lives; they became another family and Albert’s life was certainly enriched by each and every one of them.
Those left to cherish his memories are his wife of 68 years Margaret, his two daughters; Shirley (Gene) Smith of Byron, Ill. and Sheryl (Kenny) Burns of Maquoketa, three grandchildren; Stephanie (Lou) Casaceli of Winter Garden, Fla., Cassie (Ryan) Edwards of Delmar and Emily (Michael) Stearns of Mansfield, Ohio, five great-grandchildren with another one soon on the way, his sisters; Ruth (Leland) Nowadzky of Cedar Rapids, Jean (Robert) Stinocher of Solon and a brother Robert (Shirley) Storm of Cedar Rapids.
He is preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Mary Hunter.
