HOLSTEIN– Private family services for Lyle W. Buell, 86, of Holstein were Aug. 30, 2015, at Schaller Cemetery in Schaller, with the Rev. Doresa K. Collogan oficiating.

Lyle W. Buell was born January 24, 1929 in rural Holstein, Iowa to William and Elna (Goettsch) Buell. He was baptized in the Methodist church in Schaller, Iowa. He lived in rural Galva when he attended and graduated from Galva High School in 1946. Lyle farmed with his father until he left to serve in the U.S. Army from 1951-1953. During that time he was a member of the 341st Engineer Panel Bridge Company in Korea and earned the rank of Sergeant. After he returned from the service, Lyle returned home to farming. He was united in marriage to Melba “Jane” Kostis on October 1, 1960 at the United Presbyterian Church in Morningside, Sioux City, Iowa. To this union two sons were born, Jeffery Lyle Buell and Timothy Lyle Buell. Lyle started custom farming before he was married and raised Black Angus Cattle and hogs, corn, beans and oats. Lyle also farmed in Schaller and later in Galva. He never really retired from farming; he was up and out early to help his son in his later years. In 1994 he built his retirement home in Holstein. Lyle died Aug. 24 at University Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.
He was preceded in death by his parents; wife Jane; son, Jeffery; brother, Dennis Buell; sisters, Joelle and Marylin. Lyle is survived by son Tim and wife Vicki Buell of Galva, IA; granddaughters, Natalie and husband Mike Boshart of Holstein, IA and Ashley Buell of Galva, IA and her special friend Cole Magnussen of Newell, IA; great-grandson, Keegan Boshart; and many extended relatives and friends.
