Jarrett Harms 1954-2019 On February 16, 1954, Jarrett Ray Harms was born to Glenn E. and Eleanor (Wright) Harms in Shenandoah, Iowa. His youth was spent in Shenandoah from which many a story arose about the fun and sports games played by the whole neighborhood. In 1972 he graduated from Shenandoah Community High School. On November 21, 1974 he was joined in marriage to Jacqueline M. Laughlin. They were blessed by two children Jason R. Harms and Amanda M. (Harms) Wiltz. Jarrett worked at Tyler Bottling Co, MidContinent Bottling Co, Eaton Corporation and spent the last 25 years working faithfully at Pella Rolscreen Co achieving recognition for his continuous work record. He treasured the relationships he had with his co-workers. Jarrett was a faithful and loyal man who enjoyed his family and friends. Fishing trips to Canada and hunting in the Loess Hills with friends and family were cherished memories of his and the source of many stories. He also loved gardening and working in the yard creating beautiful flower beds and landscapes. He loved nature. He also appreciated good music and was often found listening to one of his favorite bands. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family and following their activities. He might have been known to "brag" a little bit about his grandchildren. He was a wonderful, devoted husband, father, grandpa, son, brother and friend and he will be sorely missed. Jarrett was preceded in death by his father Glenn E Harms and mother Eleanor I. Harms. Left with many cherished memories are his wife Jacqueline "Jackie" Harms, son Jason Harms and daughter-in-law Michelle, daughter Amanda "Mandi" Wiltz and son-in-law Chad, sister Marla Worthington and brother-in-law Joe, four grandchildren Gabriella Harms, Isabella Harms, Jada Wiltz, and Jackson Wiltz as well as many friends and family members. We are comforted that he is now at peace in Christ in his Father's loving arms.
