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.
