The Jeppson's are an amazing family and Indianola Iowa was so blessed to have them in our small community the time that we did. They brought love, talent, integrity and class to our town. We were very lucky to have them for the time that we did. What a great legacy Gordy has left behind.

We are so sorry to hear about the loss of Gordy. He was a wonderful neighbor and good friend. We will miss him very much. Gordy, Mary and Rolf have been our neighbors in Tempe, Arizona for many years. We always looked forward to seeing them come back to Arizona every winter. They have always been so kind and generous to us. Gordy was such a pleasant person to be around. He always had a smile on his face and was such a cheerful and positive kind of guy. Gordy enjoyed riding his bike during the pleasant Arizona winter days. He also loved his cactus garden and working in his yard. Our regret is that we had known him for such a short time. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Jeppson family during this difficult time.

Gordy was such a great man, a great father and a great husband. He had a major impact on me while Dain and I were in college together and I cherish those memories of he and Mary both during the days in Mankato and after. We know he is in a better place but he will be missed by many I am sure. God Bless the entire Jeppson family during this time. We love you.

I just of heard of Gordie's passing..Mary and I wish to extend our sympathy to all the family. I particularly will remember his positive attitude and good will whenever I was with him. His ability and character contributed much the the "old" Aid Assn. for Lutherans. May God comfort you at the time.

Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Gordie was a good friend who made life brighter wherever he was. His faith, smile and positive attitude reflected his inner faith in Jesus. Mary and Gordie made us feel blessed whenever we were around them. I will especially miss him on my birthday which was the same day as his and opened the door for endless opportunities to experience Gordie's sense of humor!

Mary and family.... So many great memories... Too many to number!
God truly Blessed us when He gave us Gordie. It was great talking to Gordie just a few weeks ago. Thought of him yesterday... And was going to call today... God called first and we know he is at home in Heaven.
We love you... Jerry and Jacquie
