James Clarence Reemts

James Clarence Reemts of New Prague, Minnesota, passed away on Wednesday, October 14th, 2020.

James was preceded in death by his parents, Bennie and Marie, and brothers Ray, Gene, and  Ronnie and sisters Shirley and Ann. James was also preceded in death by his grandson, Noah.  

James is survived by his loving wife Joanne and his four children, Jeannie, Nisi (Tom), Chris  (Kelly) and Colleen (Brian). James is also survived by brothers Dave and Bob; seven  grandchildren, Rachel (Connor), TJ, Rayna, Ryan, Taryn, River and Wren along with great-grandchildren  Rose, Tony and Caryline.  

James grew up on a farm near Deer Creek, Minnesota. He then moved to the Twin Cities, where  he worked for Dayton Hudson Corporation for forty-four years. He was also a firefighter and fire  marshall for the city of Apple Valley before moving to New Prague.  

In 1979, Jim and Joanne bought a small property east of New Prague, spending thirty-six years  transforming it into a beautiful hobby farm that was a gathering place for the family. In 2015,  they sold the farm and moved into town. They joined Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, where  James enjoyed his time on the kitchen crew.  

A small service was held Saturday, October 17th at the family home gathering immediate family  only, followed by a memorial parade hosted by the church. Both were captured and shared via  Holy Trinity's Facebook Live.

 In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred to the Holy Trinity Lutheran Church Kitchen Fund.
