Virtus Boege Ramundt, 80, of Reinbeck passed away July 24, 2015. He was born August 7, 1934, in Reinbeck, Iowa, to Henry and LaVera (Boege) Ramundt, the youngest of three boys. He graduated from Reinbeck High School in 1952.

He married Shirley Cain of Beaman in the Reinbeck United Church of Christ on June 12, 1955. They had two sons, Curt and Randy, and farmed in the Reinbeck, Dinsdale and Lincoln areas for many years, including 37 years as a seed corn producer for Pioneer Hybrid. After retiring from farming, Virt enjoyed being part of the team at CPS of Reinbeck.

Virt was a loving husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather and a friend to all he met. In addition to being a passionate card player, good fisherman, and lousy golfer, he enjoyed the many groups he belonged to during his life, including the Masonic Coin Lodge No. 394, El Kahir Shrine Temple, Lincoln Co-op Board of Directors, Jaycees and Lions Club. He was a lifetime member of the Reinbeck Union Congregational United Church of Christ.
