‘Mr. DeWitt’ to celebrate his 97th birthday


Everyone is invited to help “Mr. DeWitt,” William D. “Bill” Homrighausen, celebrate a life well lived  Sunday, March 13, 2-4 p.m. A drive-by with treats, will take place at his home, 825 Seventh St., DeWitt, IA 

Bill was born in Clinton, March 12, 1925, and spent the first five years of his life on the family farm near Grand Mound. He and his parents, Ed and Mary Homrighausen, then moved to DeWitt so little Billy could begin school. He graduated with the DeWitt High School Class of 1943.

He had a 42-year business career with Iowa Mutual Insurance Co., retiring in 1986. 

Bill married Shirley Davis, a journalist with the Quad-City Times, in 1983. Her passing in 2018 ended 35 years of marvelous matrimony and adventure.
