Hubert Teslow, age 85, of Decorah, passed away on Sunday, April 28, 2024, at his home in Decorah surrounded by his family.

A memorial service for Hubert will be held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, May 9, at Helms Funeral Home, 306 E. Water St., in Decorah with Rev. Michael Wilker presiding. Visitation will be from 4 p.m. until the time of service at the funeral home on Thursday.

Hubert was born on May 25, 1938, to Henry and Ethel Mae Teslow in Decorah. He graduated from Decorah High School in 1956. Shortly after graduating, he joined the Army. Upon his return, he worked as a draftsman for Deco Products for 41 years. He was also a volunteer fireman for 16 years for the Decorah Fire Deptartment. Hubie married Mary (Hovden) Cornelius on Oct. 17, 1970. Together they raised four children. Throughout Hubie’s life he enjoyed many sports and was good at them all.  His favorites were playing basketball, softball, bowling, golf, and cards. He even won a tournament or two. He enjoyed listening to music but always said he couldn’t dance. After retirement in 2003, he traveled to visit his kids and spent many winters playing on the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail. Hubie was diagnosed with atypical Parkinsonism and this illness took those things he loved away from him. However, he found joy and happiness watching Westerns with his daughters and game shows with his wife. Winn Med Home Health brought new faces for him to see. Hubie enjoyed his OT time with Stacey. Nurse Keegan, as well as Stacey and Toni, always brought a smile to his face. They helped him enjoy his life again. Hubie loved his family and was a great father. The way his eyes lit up when he smiled and laughed will forever be missed.

Hubie is survived by his wife of 53 years: Mary; daughters: Keri Cornelius of Decorah, Dawn (Richard) Mall of Long Beach, Calif., Pam (Todd) Schorzmann of Helena, Ala.; brother: George (Gail) Price, Rochester, Minn.; sister-in-law: Kathy Teslow of Lake Wales, Fla.; along with many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his son: Curt Cornelius.  Parents: Henry and Ethel Mae Teslow.  Brother: Don Teslow.  Sister: Audrey Hahn
