William Balkenende was born May 27, 1911, in Sheboygan, Wis., a son of Cornelius and Nellie (Hens Dyke) Balkenende, and died Monday (Aug. 24, 1998) at his home in rural Marble Rock.

At the age of four, the family moved to Vesper, Wis., where he received his education in the schools nearby. He first started working on the family farm and at the age of 18 moved to Iowa, where he worked in and around Mason City, and later Marble Rock as a farm laborer and a gas station attendant. For several years he operated the Cities Service Station in Marble Rock.

On Oct. 27, 1939, he was united in marriage to Christine Claire Weiss at St. Raphael Rectory in Dubuque. They made their home near Marble Rock where he was an independent truck driver for Cecil Swant until 1954, when he became employed by the Greene Limestone Company. Following his retirement in 1974 he farmed and raised livestock on his acreage. He enjoyed tinkering and fixing things at home, going to auctions, fishing and hunting.

He will be remembered as a devoted husband, father and grandfather. He was a member of St. Mary's Catholic Church in Roseville.

Living family members include his loving wife of 58 years, Christine, of Marble Rock; four daughters and their spouses, Jane and Jerry Dutcher of Lehigh, Judy Balkenende of Minnetonka, Minn., Nancy and Raymond Guthart of Craigville, Ind., and Sandra and Jim Sanford of Mesa, Ariz.; five sons and their spouses, Jim and Nadine Balkenende of Floyd, Bob and Betty Balkenende of DeFuniak, Fla., Jack and Jane Balkenende, and Tom and Rhonda Balkenende, all of Mason City, and Don and Annette Balkenende of St. Louis Park, Minn.; 19 grandchildren; six great-grandchildren; and two sisters, Frances Balkenende of New Jersey, and Elsie Schilling of Oregon.

He was preceded in death by his son, Dick Balkenende in 1962; grandson, Michael Balkenende in 1972; his parents; six sisters; and three brothers.
