Albert Peter Timmermann was born on January 16, 1921, the son of PFL and Trentje (Behrens) Timmermann in Sibley, IA. He grew up in the Sibley area and attended country school through the eighth grade. On November 16, 1941, he married Marjorie Dagel on the family farm near Sibley. After marriage, the couple remained on the farm. In August of 2000, they moved into Sibley. Albert was a life long member of the Trinity Lutheran Church in Sibley, member of the Farmers Bureau and Bigelow Elevator Board. Albert's life was farming. He also did some dozer work and made many county waterways. He also helped his neighbors out, custom combining and bailing. At one time, he was a rural telephone lineman for Viola Township. He loved animals and his hobbies included Ballroom Dancing and Bowling with his friends from the Adrian and Ellsworth areas. Special memories his family will never forget is his smile, whistling and his love of the land and his family.
