Joseph G. Dierckman, 91

Joseph G. Dierckman, 91, Batesville, died Tuesday, March 11, 2014, at Margaret Mary Health. 

Born March 20, 1922, in Ripley County, he was the son of Ruth (Kirschner) and Edward Dierckman. 

The farmer and member of Holy Family Catholic Church, Oldenburg, and Knights of St. John Commandery 220 was a U.S. Army World War II veteran.

Joe enjoyed following college basketball. He liked to watch Cincinnati Reds baseball on television or just sit by the radio to listen to games. He was fond of many kinds of foods and desserts. Joe and his brother Ralph would faithfully attend many of the area’s church picnics and enjoyed the dinners that were served there. 

They could often be found tending to their garden and when the vegetables would ripen, they would pick and can them to enjoy later. Joe’s true passion, though, was farming. He could be seen working in the fields early in the morning and wouldn’t come in until after it was dark. 

He is survived by his brother, Ralph Dierckman, Batesville; his sister, Cleora “Sis” Kuntz, Brookville; and numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. 

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by sisters Dolores Reer and Roberta Brunsman and brothers Milton and Elmer Dierckman.

Visitation is Thursday, March 13, from 4-7 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home, Batesville. Funeral services are at 10 a.m. Friday, March 14, at Holy Family Catholic Church with the Rev. David Kobak, OFM, officiating. The burial will follow in the church cemetery with military rites conducted by Batesville Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3183 and Prell-Bland American Legion Post 271, Batesville. 

The family requests memorials to the Rosemary and Melanie Dierckman Oldenburg Academy Scholarship or Morris Volunteer Fire Department.
