Darrell Klein

September 4, 1942 — January 26, 2024

Darrell A. Klein, age 81, of Council Bluffs, passed away peacefully Friday, January 26th at the Hansen House Memory Care Residence in Council Bluffs.

Darrell was born at home to the late Joseph and Mary Ann (Schmitz) Klein on September 4, 1942, on the family farm near Defiance, Iowa. He graduated from Panama High School with the class of 1960 and continued to be close and active with his classmates for many years.

Upon graduation, Darrell moved to Council Bluffs where he later met his wife, Mary Jo (Green). Darrell and Mary Jo were married in 1964 and later blessed with two sons, Jeff and Todd.
