Walt Viering Obit

Once again, we need to let people know that Walt Viering, a long-time contributor to the All Saints Lutheran Church Food Pantry and Clothing Closet, has passed.

Walt Viering, of North Liberty, Iowa, formerly of Davenport, passed away October 24, 2021, at University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Walt was a teacher to his core, serving Davenport Schools as a teacher, Associate Principal, and Principal. He loved interacting with students and staff alike and taught with compassion, caring, and humor. After retiring as Principal, Walt spent several years as Home Instructor working with students who were unable to attend school in person. He gave more than 100% to these students and their families and loved being part of their lives.

He is survived by his wife, Sue, and their children, Michaela, Alex (Regina), Ben (Jessie), Andy (Rhonda), Megan, Mindy (Matt Best), James and Ossie and nine grandchildren. He is also survived by his sisters, Meta Lage, Linda Marlow, Ilene Cook, Helen Hinders, and their families.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Fritz and Augusta Viering, of Beaman, Iowa and by his brothers, Fred and Warren.

A private family service will be held at a future date. Two causes close to Walt’s heart were education and the food pantry at All Saints Lutheran Church in Davenport. Memorials may be directed to All Saints’ food pantry, 5002 Jersey Ridge Rd., Davenport, Iowa, 52807 or to Holt International Children’s Services, P.O. Box 2880, Eugene, Oregon, 97402. Holt has several programs that support education throughout the world and memorials may be directed toward any of their education funds, especially those that support education for girls.
