Stanley William Henry Mohning was born Nov. 19, 1921, on the family farm in Marion Township, rural Plymouth County, the son of William and Rose (Bruns) Mohning. Stan was baptized and confirmed into the Christian faith at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Remsen. He attended country school in Marion Township. Following his schooling, he began farming.
He was united in marriage to Blanche Petersen on Aug. 23, 1944 at Gethsemane Lutheran Church in Oyens. They farmed for many years near Oyens. Following their retirement, they continued to live on the farm.
In 2008, they moved to Prime Living in Le Mars. In May 2011, he became a resident at the Good Samaritan Society-Le Mars.
Stan was a longtime member of St. John's Lutheran Church in Le Mars.
