Douglas 'Gene' Streeter
Douglas Eugene "Gene" Streeter had his last BV and told his last joke on Sunday, July 18, 2021. He passed away peacefully in his sleep after losing his battle with lung cancer, surrounded by his wife and daughters.
Services will be held on at 1 p.m. on Saturday at Immaculate Conception Church, 720 West Willow, Cherokee. Monsignor Kenneth Seifried and Father Dan Rupp will officiate. Visitation with the family present will be held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday at Boothby Funeral Home, 207 East Main Street, Cherokee. Online condolences may be left at www.boothbyfuneral.com.
Gene was born on Oct. 31, 1945, in Cherokee to Marius and Ruth Streeter. He attended college at Estherville Community College and worked as an insurance agent for Mass Mutual for 50 years. On June 10, 1972, he married RobN Teichman and raised three daughters.
Gene was an avid golfer, loved fishing, and had a special affinity for corvettes. He was happiest when surrounded by his close friends and family and never missed a cocktail hour. We will miss his colorful language, dirty jokes, and most of all, stories of the pranks he pulled during his life.
He is survived by his loving family, wife, RobN; his three children Heather Streeter (Nick Westphal) of Ankeny, Iowa, Holly Streeter-Schaefer (Ken Schaefer) of Overland Park, Kan., and Heidi Conley (Jacy) of Prairie Village, Kan.; his two grandchildren, Morgan and Logan Kinch; and his sister and brother-in-law Marilee Strenge (Daryl) of Melvin, Iowa.
Gene was preceded in death by his father, Marius; his mother, Ruth; and brother, Michael "Butch" Streeter.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials made to Cherokee Regional Hospice in memory of Gene.
