Henry C. Plagman

July 21, 1951 ~ September 30, 2022 (age 71) 71 Years Old


Henry Christopher Plagman, 71, of Guttenberg, IA, died Friday, September 30, 2022 at Guttenberg Care Center.

A Graveside Service will be held at Mt. Harmony Cemetery in Garber, Iowa on Tuesday, October 4, 2022 at 10 a.m. Pastor Margaret Yackel Juleen will officiate.

Henry was born on July 21, 1951 at Mercy Hospital in Dubuque, Iowa to LaVerne and Minnie (Bottleman) Plagman. Henry grew up around the Elkport area where he received his education locally. Henry spent his life working for various local farmers.

He met and married the love of his life Sandra Jean Krugger. On March 12th, 1971 they married at the Methodist church in McGregor Iowa, blessing them with 4 children: Wendy, Mary, Kimberly and LaVern. He lost his wife in 1974, and a part of Henry died that day as well. The past 15 years of his life Henry resided at Scenic Acres in Elkader Iowa, where he reconnected with his children. It’s no secret that he had a very strong bond with his twin great granddaughters. He lit up with smiles just speaking of them, and he knew what twin they were by name. They loved him just the same. We are all at peace knowing our dad today is in the arms of his beautiful wife, and his broken heart is now whole.

Survivors include his children, Wendy Plagman of Manchester, Mary (Breyon) Gibson of Wadena, Kimberly (Don) Buckley of Elkader, Lavern Plagman of Wadena, six grandchildren: Kevin & Justin Krapfl, Jordon (Rich) & Alisha Cook, Tessa (Eric) Barger & Tiffany Plagman, and five great grandchildren.

Henry was preceded in death by his wife, Sandra Jean Krugger, parents- LaVerne & Minnie Plagman, brother, LaVerne Plagman, and a sister-in-law, Shirley Plagman.

The family would like to extend a special Thank-You to all the nurses who took great care of Henry at Scenic Acres, Guttenberg Care Center and St Croix Hospice. We will forever be grateful for your love and care.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Croix Hospice.
