Obituary

Anthony Dennis Nilles, 78, of Madison, South Dakota, formerly of Le Mars, Iowa passed away on Tuesday, June 15, 2021 at Madison Regional Health System. A Celebration of Life Service will take place at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, June 21, 2021 at the Mauer – Johnson Funeral Home in Le Mars. Father Travis Crotty will officiate. Burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery in Le Mars. Visitation with the family present will begin at 11:00 a.m. on Monday with a Rosary at 11:30 a.m.

Anthony Dennis Nilles was born on June 14, 1943, in Remsen, Iowa, one of eleven children born to Peter and Olga (Krieps) Nilles. He graduated from Remsen St. Mary’s High School. He married Barbara Rokes on August 19, 1961. They made their home in the Cherokee, Iowa area where he farmed.

Tony married Lynette Ames on May 28, 1969 in Marcus, Iowa. They made their home in Le Mars, Iowa and Tony began work at Supersweet Feeds. He later took a position at the Seney Elevator and then with Meis Seed and Feed where he served as store manager for 15 years.

Tony married Julie (Snyder) Kobs on June 2, 1984. Tony worked briefly for Pacesetter Windows before working as a machine operator at Wells Dairy. He retired from Wells in 2000 but continued to operate an appliance repair and sales business.

He could often be found snacking on ice cream and root beer barrel candy. Tony watched MASH daily and could recite lines before the actors could say them. He also collected clocks and had several in each room of the house.

Grateful to have shared his life is his wife, Julie Nilles of Madison, SD; his children, Becky (Matt Dial) Nilles of Springdale, AR, Jim (Amy) Nilles of Merrill, IA, Dale (Jan) Nilles of Las Vegas, NV, Ray Nilles of Aurelia, IA, Christine (Mike Anderson) Nilles of Des Moines, IA, Angie (Matt) Steeg of Le Mars, IA, Jacquie Monen of Sioux Falls, SD, Merrie Nilles of Douglas, GA and Pat (Monica) Nilles of Le Mars, IA; a step-daughter, Danyel Bergjord of Coon Rapids, MN; numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren; brothers, Dennis (Bev) Nilles, Peter (Judy) Nilles and Mark (Jean) Nilles all of Le Mars, IA; sisters-in-law, Shirley Nilles of Kingsley, IA and Florence Nilles of Remsen, IA; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; wife, Lynette; a son, Jeff; step-son, Jon Kobs; siblings, George (Phyllis) Nilles, Betty Nilles, Stan Nilles, Marcella (Nubs) Hansen, Clarice (Don) Bainbridge, Lorne Nilles and Ruth (Jerry) Grage.
