The death of Roman Albert Gerwing, 89 years, of St. Mary’s Villa, Humboldt and formerly of Lake Lenore occurred on Monday, December 27, 2021. Roman was born on November 15, 1932 in Humboldt to Ewald and Irene (nee Skalicky) Gerwing. He grew up in the Lake Lenore area and then went to St. Pete’s at Muenster for High School. Roman married Viola Stroeder on May 24, 1954 and they raised a family of seven children. They operated a grocery store for a while and then Roman started farming. He later worked as a mustard grain buyer for a number of years and then at the Lake Lenore seed plant, eventually returning to farming. Roman enjoyed the outdoors, spending time fishing and hunting. He was a very active member of the Lake Lenore Lions Club. Socializing with family and friends over a card game was a favorite pastime. Roman dedicated much of his time after retirement to caring for Viola until her death in 2007. In 2011, he moved to Humboldt where he lived at Caleb Village. He enjoyed his time there and then in March 2020, requiring more care, he moved to St. Mary’s Villa where he lived until the present.
