Sample ImageHerman G. Sime, age 92 of Prairie du Chien formerly from Ferrryville, died Sunday, January 5, 2020.


Herman G. Sime was born November 1, 1927 to Herman Sr. and Grace (Helgerson) Sime. He was only able to get through the sixth grade back then in order to stay home and work on the farm. He farmed pretty much his whole life, both before and after serving his country in the United States Army. He married Alice Kapanke and together they raised six children. Alice passed away February 8, 1971.


Continuing his love for life and friends and family, Herman entered holy matrimony again, this time with Sandra Lee Hauge at the Franklin Lutheran Church on July 6, 1974. Herman loved his family. He also enjoyed his lefsa and lutefisk, and all fish for that matter. He liked fishing and hunting as well. He enjoyed working at the recycling center since he collected rare bottles and he might find a treasure. Then there was yard work, always yard work…his lawn was immaculate.


God bless our memories of Herman.


He is survived by his wife, Sandra Lee Hauge Sime; his children, David P. (Judy), Linda (Dick) Coleman, Donna M. Bolstad, Donald (Susan), Dawn D. (Butch) Hauge, Ruthie A. Williams, Jolene G. Wilson, honorary son Kermit T. ‘Terry’ (Kathy) Sime; 17 grandchildren; 31 great-grandchildren; two great-great-grandchildren; as well as siblings, Geraldine Faerber, Roger (Elaine) Sime, Janice Roberts, Mary Lou Burton, John (Louise) Sime and Jim (Lila) Sime and many nieces, nephews, cousins and relatives.


He was preceded in death by his first wife, Alice; a son, Daniel H. Sime; a son-in-law, Rodney Bolstad; and siblings, Kermit Sime, Clarabelle Horner, and Arlene Deml.
