Obituary for Jerome A. Vierling

Jerome Albert Vierling, age 82 of Shakopee, entered eternal life on Thursday, April 6, 2017 at McKenna Crossing in Prior Lake.
Jerome was born on December 25, 1934 in Shakopee, the son of Alphons and Catherine (Stoffel) Vierling. He was a Ford man. Started work at Ford Motor Company in St. Paul in 1955 at the age of 20, beginning on the Assembly Line and working the bulk of his 30 years in Standard Parts Stock. Retired in 1985 at the age of 50.
After retiring from Ford, Jerome did clock repair not only for Real Gem Jewelry, but also for many individuals in Shakopee and the surrounding area. People from miles around would bring their antique clocks for repair and to hear a good story or two.
Until just a few years ago, he was a familiar face for over 20 years at the Canterbury Car Wash doing maintenance and lending a helping hand when needed.
Work was balanced with a playful side. His interests ran the gamut over the years from softball, to snowmobiling, slot car racing, shuffleboard, ping pong, bumper pool, radio controlled airplanes and throwing darts.
His stories, laughs and good nature will be missed by all who knew him.
Jerome is preceded in death by his wife of 40 years, Gloria; son, Steve; parents, Alphons and Catherine Vierling; sister-in-law, Connie Vierling.
He is survived by children, Monica (Jerry) Hall, Gregory (Vicki) Vierling; grandchildren, Chad (Faye) Kannenberg, Trent (Mariah) Kannenberg, Ryan Vierling, Mathew Vierling, Joseph Vierling; great-grandchildren, Akaya, Freedom, Sterling and Gloria Kannenberg; brother, Lawrence Vierling.
