Allyn Jarred

Allyn Lee Jarred, son of Wayne Arthur & Clara Dale (Motsinger) Jarred, was born at home, north of Delphos, Iowa, on March 23, 1936.

Allyn’s dad did construction work, so the family traveled with his work. They would eventually settle in Mount Ayr. Allyn attended school in Benton, Diagonal, and Mount Ayr, graduating from Mount Ayr High School in 1955.

Allyn enlisted in the US Army and served his country in Korea. After he was honorably discharged, Allyn returned to Mount Ayr. While on a blind date at Nevinville, Iowa, Allyn met his true love Nancy Darlene Schroder. They were united in marriage on September 26, 1959. They made Tingley their home, living in several places in Tingley.

Allyn began working land construction with his dad before creating his own dirt construction business called Jarred Construction. He had a big part in the construction of Sun Valley Lake. His son and grandsons would eventually follow in his steps and there have been 4 generations of Jarred’s in the land construction business. He was a member of Local 101 of Operating Engineers.

Allyn was active in his community, serving as Tingley mayor for 16 years. He was on the Tingley Volunteer Fire Department for awhile and was a member of the Emmett Liles Post 541 at Ellston.

Allyn loved to drive around Tingley each morning checking things out and tooting his horn at certain places. He had a great sense of humor and loved a good joke. Allyn enjoyed a couple of cold ones after work and when he retired, he looked forward to visits by Larry & his dog, Jade. Even though he couldn’t operate anymore, he always made the rounds inspecting things. Allyn loved & enjoyed his grandchildren and great grandchildren. He looked forward to Saturday evening supper with the family; trips to Toot-Toot’s in Bethany for his birthday and he even got to ride in the party bus for his last birthday trip in March!

Allyn passed away on June 2, 2021, with his family by his side. He was preceded in death by his parents, Wayne & Dale Jarred.

He is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Nancy Jarred of Tingley; daughter Monica (Bill) Wiederholt of Stanberry, MO and son Larry Jarred of Tingley; five grandchildren Brenda (Rodrigo) Soares, Sean (Heather) Murphy, Ashley Jarred (Cullen Morrison), Levi (Macy) Jarred, Tyler Jarred; four great-grandchildren Addison Deets, Alyssa Deets, Tell Morrison, Mila Morrison, and one more on the way; his sister Myrna (Rex) Luko of West Des Moines, IA; in-laws Jean Graves of Omaha, NE, Bert Lowenberg of Nevinville, IA, Carl (Ruth) Schroder of Macksburg, IA; several nieces, nephews, other relatives and many good friends. 

A memorial fund has been established in his name to be decided.

Please accept my humble prayers for your loss. I shared the bench seat on that CAT many times in my youth. I was on leave in 1972 and told Allyn I wanted to find a CAT belt buckle. He took the one off of the belt he was wearing and said " you tell em that came off a CAT skinner". I wear it daily. I don't smoke WOLF Brothers Crooks anymore. May God Bless the memories of a great man.

I was a classmate of Allyn's graduating with the Class of 1955. I hadn't seen Allyn in many years but have good memories of him. I remember his parents well and where they lived in Mount Ayr. My heartfelt prayers go to his wife and family.
