Harold Dean Yoble, of Dubois, Nebraska, died Thursday, February 22nd, at the age of 88.

He was born February 26th, 1935 at home on the farm East of DuBois to Hettie (Westerman) Yoble and Edmund F. Yoble, the youngest of 6 children.

Harold went by the name ‘Dean’ a majority of his life. Dean attended school at the DuBois School and graduated in 1953.

On June 3rd, 1956, Harold was united in marriage to his high school sweetheart, Carolyn Rohlmeier. Four children were born to this couple, Roy David, Susan Kay, Sheryl Lynn, and Lisa Deanne.

Dean served in the Army Reserve until he had a medical discharge. He was engaged in farming with his father and brother Floyd.

Dean was an International fan and belonged to the Nebraska Chapter #12 International Tractor Club. He had several restored tractors and also a crawler. Dean and Carolyn went to many of the National I.H. Tractor shows, and state shows. He made sure Roy got a tractor for his first birthday.

Dean and Carolyn were members of the DuBois United Methodist Church. He served on its Board of Trustees at various times. When Dean was a youth, he would walk from the farm into town for Sunday School at the church. Usually, Carolyn- aunt Valma would pick him up along the road and give him a lift.

Dean enjoyed working with wood and made shadow boxes, doll cradles, various decorative barns, creches, and a rocking horse. Also sheds for Roy- toy implements and a wooden combine to play with.

Carolyn and Dean enjoyed gospel music and the old-style country music. Three Wooden Crosses was one of their favorites. Its story describes a farmer and a teacher which they were. The song also shows that God has a plan even if we don’t know it at the time.
