Neal Edward Christoffersen

July 13, 1954 — August 17, 2023

     Neal Edward Christoffersen, the son of Lyle “Shorty” and Dorothy (Beermann) Christoffersen, was born July 13, 1954 at the Audubon County Memorial Hospital in Audubon, Iowa and died at his home in Rural Audubon, Iowa on August 17, 2023 at the age of 69 years, 1 month, and 4 days.


     Neal was baptized and confirmed at the St. John’s Lutheran Church in Audubon, Iowa. He attended rural schools and later went to the Audubon High School where he was on the wrestling team. Neal graduated from the Audubon High School with the Class of 1972. Following graduation, he farmed with his father. They raised hogs and Salers purebred cattle. They grew Clover Hill hybrid corn and soybeans.


     On August 19, 1978, he was united in marriage to Janet Stolz at the St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Audubon. They were blessed with three children, Ann, Alicea, and Eric. They lived on and operated the family farm until he just recently semi-retired.

Neal enjoyed bowling and slow pitch softball. He was member of the Cattleman’s Association and liked attending the Audubon County Fair. Neal was also an avid Kansas City Chiefs fan. But, most of all he enjoyed watching his children and grandchildren participate in their many activities.
