Jeffry Lew Post, son of Arnold and Lois (Christoffer) Post, was born on Monday, April 26, 1943, in Worthington. He was baptized and confirmed at the Rost Lutheran Church.
Jeff grew up on a farm in rural Okabena. He attended Rost Lutheran Parochial School and graduated from Okabena High School in 1961. Jeff went to college for three years, then attended Woolworth Management Training.
Beginning in Estherville, Iowa, his career with Woolworth spanned from 1966-1982. In 1970, Jeff was assigned as store manager in Cortez, Colo.
Jeff was united in marriage to LoAnn Ingbritson on Aug. 19, 1967, at Bethany Lutheran Church in Bergen. They were blessed with two children, Sarah and Jason. This marriage was dissolved in 2002.
In 1982, Jeff relocated to the area to help his ailing father-in-law farm near Bergen. He also worked as a nursing assistant and home health aide until his retirement in 2012.

Upon some health issues that arose, Jeff became a resident of the Good Samaritan Society in Windom, where he entered eternal rest on Thursday, Nov. 19, 2020, at the age of 77 years, 6 months and 23 days.
Jeff was a member of the YMCA in Worthington where he had a great group of friends that he played pickleball with. One of his greatest pleasures was travelling, both with family and tour groups.
Jeff loved being outdoors his entire life, whether camping, hiking or gardening. He assisted his brother Marlyn on several Fishing Has No Boundaries trips.
