Morey Owenson, 54, peacefully passed away the morning of May 6th, 2020.

Morey was born and raised in Dayton, Iowa by his loving parents, Carroll and Monelle Owenson. In his youth, he threw caution to the wind and lived with a spirit of adventure with his dog, Sheba and loving brother, Chris. Morey graduated from the University of Northern Iowa and dedicated 26 years at Farm Bureau, bringing joy to everyone in the office. This is where he met his wife, Kathie, and became a father to their four children.

Some might call him an old soul. Fishing was a past-time, along with his artistic self-expression through photography, woodworking, polishing rocks, and writing poetry. He was a man of deep faith and he and his family were members of Lutheran Church of Hope, West Des Moines.

Morey was a beloved father and grandfather, a loving husband, and always aimed to make others laugh. He will be deeply missed by those he left behind.

Left to grieve his passing are his wife, Kathie; their four children: Nathan (Kristin), Jacob, Jenna, and Taylor; Owen, his grandson and namesake; brother, Chris (Jenifer); niece, Anna; nephew, Taylor and mother-in-law, Marilyn Tracy. Preceding him in death were his parents, Carroll and Monelle Owenson and father-in-law, Lloyd Tracy.

A special thank you to the amazing team at Hospice of the Midwest for their exceptional care for Morey and his family. Memorials may be directed to Hospice of the Midwest. A private service is planned and online condolences are welcome at
