In Loving Memory of
James “Jim” Allen Bose
Jim Bose was born on November 23, 1949, in Slayton, Minnesota to Henry and Johanna Van Eck Bose. He grew up on the family farm north of Lake Wilson, MN and attended Lake Wilson High School. On February 8, 1969, he and Sylvia “Terri” Hale were married in Flandreau, SD. Following their marriage, they made their home in the Lake Wilson area. Jim work as a machinist in Chandler, MN before going to work for the Hadley Elevator. The family made their home in Slayton for a time before moving to an acreage north of Slayton. They eventually built a new home east of Slayton. A partnership was formed to buy the Lime Creek Elevator and it was decided that Jim would operate the elevator. Jim also kept busy farming and raising pigs. Due to failing health Jim moved to Our House Hospice Home in Slayton on March 22, 2023, and passed away there on April 2, 2023, at the age of 73. Jim enjoyed spending time with his family, gardening, and hunting. A highlight of Jim’s life was being asked to be best man in his grandsons wedding in 2017. Anyone that knew Jim knew that he was meticulous about everything he did in life, whether it was family, working or farming.
