Bernard L. Wanless, age 90, of rural Decorah died Wednesday, April 10, 2013 at the Winneshiek Medical Center in Decorah, IA.
Bernard was born August 8, 1922 on the family farm near Burr Oak, Iowa to Paul and Mariam (Carr) Wanless. He attended the Burr Oak School and graduated from the Canton High School, Canton, MN.

On October 3, 1946 he married Phyllis Dahlen. In 1964 they moved to a farm near Hesper and have resided there since. In “retirement” he drove truck and for 14 years volunteered to drive veterans to the VA Hospital in Minneapolis. He enjoyed mowing their lawn and neighbors’ lawns.
Bernard is survived by his wife, Phyllis of Decorah; three children, Barb (Carsy) Christopherson of Cedar Rapids, Iowa, DiAnn (Don) Lundtvedt of Decorah, and Dalen Paul Wanless of Decorah; five grandchildren; eighteen great grandchildren; and two step great grandchildren.
