Obituary for Larry Chambers

Larry Carroll Chambers, born December 6, 1933 to Clayton and Freda Chambers on the farm in Bartlett Iowa. Larry had one sister Gloria. Larry attended Bartlett school and graduated in 1951. Larry attended Peru State college where he received a Bachelors of Science.

On June 12, 1953 Larry was united in marriage to Marilyn Yvonne Taylor, daughter of Russell and Marie Taylor. At this time Larry and Marilyn moved into an apartment in Tabor Iowa and Larry began teaching 7th and 8th grade at Tabor Schools. Larry and Marilyn had two children, Jim and Kathy.

In 1960, Larry and his family moved to Thurman Iowa where he spent the rest of his life. Larry taught school for 5 years and then started working for Stauffer Chemicals. At Stauffer Chemicals (now Syngenta) Larry worked there for 33 years before retiring. Larry was a chemist before becoming a production supervisor. Larry enjoyed dancing and gliding across the floor with his wife Marilyn, to his son’s band, Mirage. Larry also loved to play golf and working crosswords and various different puzzles from the Omaha World Herald. Larry bowled at Chops Bowling alley in Omaha with people that he worked with at Stauffer Chemical and also at Midwest Lanes in Glenwood, Iowa with family and friends. Larry’s favorite times was when his grand and great grandkids would stop by unannounced. Larry loved life and his family more than anything. Larry will be missed greatly by many.

Larry has now joined his love, Marilyn. He is survived by his son Jim (Michele) Chambers of Thurman and daughter Kathy Chambers and Troy Donahue of Thurman; 8 grandchildren; 11 great grandchildren, his sister Gloria Schroder as well as many nieces and nephews.
