Bearbel Youssefpour

November 20, 1948 — November 29, 2022

             Bärbel Anne (Kloß) Youssefpour, 74, passed away peacefully at Casa de Paz Health Care Center in Sioux City on November 29th, 2022, after a lengthy battle with cancer.

            Services will be held at Meyer Brothers Morningside Chapel in Sioux City, Iowa on Sunday, December 4th, 2022.  The service will start at 11:00 AM.  Her burial will be at a later date in Dakota City Cemetery.

            Bärbel was born on November 20th, 1948 in Witzenhausen, Germany to Oskar and Dina (Schlarbaum) Kloß.  Her childhood was difficult living in the post-war country.  She later graduated from high school in Germany and soon met her future husband.  He was attending university in her home city.  They had two children and lived between Germany and her husband’s home country of Iran.

            In 1995, the family immigrated to the United States and settled in the Midwest.  Her husband tragically passed away in 1999 and Bärbel would become the head housekeeper at a local hotel until her retirement in 2019.

            She enjoyed fishing, going on motorcycle trips with her son and friends, knitting, gardening, the Nebraska Cornhuskers, and German soccer.  Bärbel loved cooking and spending time with family and was kind to everyone she met.

            Bärbel is preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Yadollah Youssefpour.  She is survived by her brother, Peter Kloß, her sister, Margit Harirchi, two children, Florian Youssefpour and Jasmin (Jeff) Harstad, four grandchildren, Simone and Josef Youssefpour, Laylah and Alexandria Harstad, and one great-grandchild, Emmett Tenold.
