Gerald “Jerry” Merfeld


Gerald “Jerry” Merfeld passed away peacefully, early Monday morning, May 8, 2023, with his family by his side.

Jerry was born in Monticello, Iowa, on May 28, 1942. He was a lifelong resident of Monticello, attending Sacred Heart Catholic School. After a stint in the United States Navy, Jerry was employed at various sale barns in the area. He enjoyed being a resident of Pinicon Place, in Anamosa, for the past five years. In his later years Jerry was an avid reader of anything Western or history. He enjoyed the activities at Pinicon Place, especially playing bingo and doing puzzles. He rarely missed a Chicago Cubs game on TV. But his favorite activity was playing the card game Shanghai with his family.

Jerry was preceded in death by his parents, Lester and Elizabeth (Redmond) Merfeld, Ash, and a sister, Mary Baker. He leaves behind four siblings, Louise (Ed) Harn, Cedar Rapids, Richard (Sandy) Merfeld, Tama, Nancy (Larry) Meier, Monticello, and Barbara (Mark) Embree, Arizona.

The family would like to express a sincere thank-you to the staff at Pinicon Place for all their compassionate care during his stay with them. Also a thank-you to St. Croix Hospice for his care in his final days.

Goettsch Funeral Home, Monticello, has taken Jerry and his family into their care. By visiting you may leave a condolence or memory about Jerry on his page. The family will be having private graveside services at a later date.
