Funeral Services for Montana “Monty” James Schany, 60, of Graettinger, Iowa were held Tuesday, August 25, 2020, at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Graettinger. Burial was at St. Jacob Catholic Cemetery in Graettinger.

Montana “Monty” James Schany, son of Richard and Bettie Marie (Martinson) Schany was born April 29, 1960, in Emmetsburg, Iowa. He graduated from Graettinger High School in 1978.

Monty was the owner of MonKass Construction and Schany Trucking. Prior to that he worked for Schany Construction for several years. Monty loved spending time watching his children play sports and spending time with family and friends. He loved chocolate cake, Busch Light and enjoyed Taco House. Monty was known as a very hard worker and was only a phone call away. He would help anyone in need at any time they needed it.

Monty was an avid Green Bay Packer fan and loved going to Lambeau Field. Monty served, as he liked to say, as the “Honorable” Mayor of Graettinger. He will always be remembered as a person who could get anyone to react to his unique personality (in other words piss you off) and the self proclaimed “Nicest Guy in Graettinger”
