Private family service planned for Denny Berhow

Dennis Dean "Denny" Berhow, age 78 of Pleasant Grove, was called home to be with the Lord for all eternity on Thursday, June 11, 2020, at Mayo Clinic Hospital Rochester, Saint Marys Campus.
He was born Feb. 23, 1942 in Austin, to Carrol and Mathilda (Krantz) Berhow. He lived most his life in Pleasant Grove. Denny graduated from Austin High School in 1961. He worked at Winona State College and later at Strains's Bus Company before retiring.
In July of 1964, Denny married Norma Onstad. They had three children, Timothy, Randy, and Sheila. They were later divorced.
On Sept. 16, 1972, Denny married the love of his life, Sandra "Sandy" Noble. They celebrated 47 happy years together. He loved his wife and rarely was one seen without the other.
Denny's interests were fishing, especially at Happiness Resort on Ten Mile Lake, cribbage, shooting pool, nice cars, western movies, exercising at DAHLC, and mostly spending time with his family. He was meticulous in caring for his vehicles. He was known as "Uncle Denny" to many more than just his nieces and nephews. Denny liked to tell jokes. He is noted for his favorite sayings when leaving some place, "Where ever you go, there you are," and "If you're not alone, you're with someone," and "Glad you got to see me."
Denny is survived by his loving wife, Sandy Berhow of Pleasant Grove; son, Randy Becker of Pine Grove, Cal.; daughter, Sheila (Craig) Muller of Hudson, Wis.; grandchildren, Joey Becker and Brody Muller; sisters, LaVonne Husemoller, Linda (Marshall) Halvorson, and Janice (James) Benesh all of Austin; sisters-in-law, Donna McPhail of Riceville, Iowa, Marie King of Austin, and Carol Schlichter of Austin; numerous nieces and nephews, great-great-nieces and nephews, and cousins.
Denny is preceded in death by his parents, Carrol and Mathilda "Tille" Berhow; infant son, Timothy Berhow; brothers, Jerry McFarland and Jimmy Berhow; brothers-in-law, Leslie Munson, Russell Husemoller, Charles "Mick" McPhail, Darrell King, and Virgil Waltz; father and mother-in-law, Ralph and Clara Noble.
Denny will be remembered as a kind and thoughtful husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle, and friend. He will be forever missed by those lives he touched and be in our hearts and memories forever.
Thank you to the Stewartville First Responders, St. Marys Hospital, and all our neighbors for their assistance. Thank you also to Dr. Thomas McLeod for taking such wonderful care of Denny for so many years.
A private family service will be held with Pastor Madison Chelberg officiating. Interment will be in Oakwood Cemetery in Austin. There will be a small gathering following the service from 1-3 p.m. on Tuesday, June 16, 2020, at River Oaks in Austin. We will be practicing social distancing and masks will be recommended.
Memorials are suggested to an organization of your choice.
Services are prearranged and performed with Worlein Funeral Home of Austin. Condolences may be expressed to the family online at
