According to the Minnesota Death Index on Ancestry.com, the Eugene Walfred Niemi born 26 Jul 1914 and died 5 Jan 1976, mother's maiden name was Hannuksela.
Eugene Niemi born 18 Oct 1913 and died 27 Jul 1965, mother's maiden name was Honkanen. This should be yours.
The Eino F Niemi 18 Jan 1916 and died 29 Sep 1993, mother's maiden name was Hammerstrom. Did not find an Eino Niemi in index with Honkanen, but they don't always give mother's maiden name, so he could be there.
