Date Published:

Summary

            Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Woodbury County, Duane E. Hoffmeyer, Judge.  AFFIRMED AS MODIFIED.  Heard by Tabor, P.J., and Greer and Ahlers, JJ.  Opinion by Tabor, P.J.  (19 pages)

            Julie Davis appeals from the dissolution decree that ended a fifty-six-year marriage.  OPINION HOLDS: The district court properly excluded the former husband’s gifted property from the marital estate, and, given the circumstances, the allocation was equitable.  But given the lopsided distribution, we increase the spousal support award.  Attorney fees are denied.
