Obituary

Gene Raymond Korzan, 84, of Kimball, SD passed away Wednesday, April 21, 2021 at Sanford Chamberlain Medical Center, Chamberlain, SD. A Public Visitation will be from 4:00 – 7:00 P.M. Sunday, April 25, 2021 at Kimball Protestant Parish, Kimball. A Private Family Funeral Service will take place on Monday followed by a Private Family Committal Service at Kimball Community Cemetery. The Funeral Service will be live-streamed under "Photos and Videos" on the funeral home website (Webcasting), also through “Mount Funeral Homes” and “Kimball Protestant Parish” Facebook pages.

Gene Raymond Korzan was born on June 8, 1936 in Chamberlain, SD to Lester and Blanche (Martin) Korzan.

After attending Swanson Country School, he began a lifetime career of farming west of Kimball, SD. On August 12, 1961, he married Betty Erickson in Reliance, SD. They lived on the family farm where they raised three daughters.

Their house was always filled with music and he loved to listen to his wife, daughters and grandchildren play the piano throughout his life. He welcomed many students to their home for piano lessons, helped Betty with countless piano recitals and loved hearing her students play.

Gene took great pride in having good cattle and taking care of the land that had been in his family for several generations. In 1994, he and Betty moved into town but he continued farming until he retired in 2014.

At the youthful age of 70, he fulfilled a lifelong dream of owning a Corvette. He and Betty enjoyed attending Corvette rallies in Spearfish. He also entered his car in area shows where he won numerous awards.

He was a member of the Kimball Protestant Parish and was on the Cleveland township board for many years.

Grateful for sharing his life are: his wife of 59 years, Betty; three daughters: Kathy (Tom) Wipf of Gravois Mills, MO, Diane (Keith) Weller of Minnetonka, MN and Lynda (Brian) Price of Mitchell, SD; six grandchildren: Anne (Caleb) Hayden, Sam and Andrew Weller, Mitchell, Madison and Ethan Price; one sister, Nila (Merle) Ketelhut; and 10 nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents and an infant son.
