Elmer Lee Loethen, 87, of Jefferson City, passed away Wednesday, February 14, 2024, at his residence surrounded by his family.

He was born on October 17, 1936, in Jefferson City, Missouri, the son of Sylvester and Matilda (Feltrop) Loethen. 

He was united in marriage on November 16, 1957, at St. Peter Catholic Church in Jefferson City, to Donna Marie Moon who survives.

Elmer worked as a dedicated salesman who spent the majority of his life working at Tennyson's Furniture Store.  

Elmer's faith played a significant role in his life, as a member of St. Martin Catholic Church.

Beyond his professional and religious commitments, Elmer had a range of interests that brought him joy.  He was an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals, eagerly rooting for them during their games. His fascination with antiques led him to build an impressive collection over time.

In his leisure time, Elmer cherished moments spent in his man cave, indulging in classic western movies.  He admired Ford Cars and Mustangs for their timeless design and craftsmanship.

Above all else, Elmer treasured the company of his loved ones. He relished the opportunity to be with family and create lasting memories together.

He was preceded in death by his parents; one great-granddaughter, Grace Farris; and three brothers, Robert Loethen, Jim Loethen, and Gene Loethen.
