Terese Yetzbacher lost her father when she was 9.
Bill Yetzbacher, a World War II veteran, returned home to run Yetzbacher Liquor Store in downtown Iola.
He?d been injured during the war, shot in the Battle of Luzon while fighting in the Philippines, and still carried a bit of shrapnel in his body. He also suffered from high blood pressure afterward, which Yetzbacher believes led to his premature death of a heart attack while undergoing a dental procedure.
