|Let the memory of Arthur be with us forever|
Arthur John Reeson was born August 23, 1920 on the family farm near Beemer to John and Mary (Buerman) Reeson. Art attended country school and Guardian Angels School. On April 11, 1944, Art married Mary Ann Wiesen at Holy Cross Catholic Church at Beemer. The couple farmed north of West Point, retiring and moving into West Point in 1997.
Art was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Knights of Columbus, past President of the Cuming County Feeders and served as their State and National Delegate, served on the Logan Township Board, Guardian Angels School Board, and the Pork Producers.
Art was a long-time farmer and livestock feeder in Cuming County. He loved playing cards, putting jigsaw puzzles together, and watching baseball games. Many summer evenings were spent playing softball with his children, and many Saturday evenings were spent dancing at area ballrooms. He enjoyed “talking farm” with his sons, family, and friends. His many grandchildren and great-grandchildren were his pride and joy, and he spent countless hours watching his children’s and grandchildren’s athletic events. According to Art, he never missed a county fair in his lifetime.
Survivors include wife Mary Ann of West Point; children Conrad of West Point, Marilyn Sexson of Johnstown, CO, Deanne (Gene) Wieneke of Beemer, Jane (Kevin) Knobbe of West Point, Jon of Giltner; daughter-in-law Jean (Richard) Baumert of West Point; 16 grandchildren; 23 great-grandchildren; sisters Loretta Muhs of West Point and Arlene Reeson of Cedar Bluffs; brother Brother Leonard Reeson of Brazil. Art was preceded in death by his parents; son Donald; and sisters Anna Kappius and Leona Rubino.
