I need to to tell a story that was told to me one year ago on my mothers birthday. Joann Lauersdorf and her family lived down the road from us. She said one day she asked her kids what they wanted to do and they responded "We want to go and see Aunt Mary"! When they got to the house it was filled with children, she counted 19! Joann asked my mom "How are you going to feed all of them!?" My wonderful mom shrugged and said, "I don't know but I'll figure it out". That was my mom, always giving, our home was always open to anyone, there always was enough food for all and we never went hungry. Watching her daily taught me how to be generous, loving, selfless, compassionate, how to work hard and feel proud about being able to work. She was never a negative person and only said kind words of all. I strive to be like her but know I can not fill her shoes. (Even though I do have big feet!) This past year was hard on her. She was a joy to the staff that took care of her, but she wanted to go home. Now she is truly home with the Lord. I will miss her shining bright blue eyes, big smile, and big heart. They will always be with me and her light will always be in my heart. Smooches and Kisses to you my wonderful, beautiful mother!!

As we all know, obituaries tell a summary of a person's life, but a person's life cannot effectively be summed up and honored in such a manner. Grandma Rennhack was a funny, cheerful, God loving, yet a stern, German woman whom was loved dearly and will be missed. I'll never forget the time my cousins, brother and I were up-north at the cabin having a pillow fight and all of a sudden Grandma walked around the corner while the feathers were flying, just hollering at us kids...boy did we get it! (Good thing we were told old for spankings at that time :-) But the amazing thing was, later she could laugh about it and still loved us. I am forever grateful that she and my grandpa raised such wonderful children so that I could be blessed to have the best mom in the world and wonderful, caring, loving aunts, uncles and cousins. Grandma fought a good fight at the end...would we expect anything less from her? Grandma you will be loved and missed however your pain and suffering is now over. You can pull that slot machine handle with both hands, pain free because you are a winner; a believer in Christ! He will raise you up on eagle's wings, bear you on the breath of dawn, make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand. Peace and love Grandma!

I've always loved that you were true to you, your values and put God and family first. We are all so blessed to have been apart of your life. This is a goodbye for now Grandma.

So very sorry to hear of Marion's death. She was a very nice lady and obviously so loved by her family. Sweet little Rosie will miss her mom so much! You were all wonderful to Marion. She was so lucky to have a loving husband and children to visit her frequently. It will be a big change for you, but hopefully time will ease your sadness.

It hurts to see you go but I know that in life their is also death and a new beginning. I remember going to grandma and grandpa's and try fixing the broken toys. (Especially the ones that made noise). Though every time I would come by later they seem to be broken again not sure how it would happen. Grandma you will be missed and always in our hearts now and always.

Just a few things about ma...... thoughtful, kindness, whitey, loving, sympathetic, forgiving, everyone else before herself and these are just a few of ma's best attributes. She is the best ma ever, she will be missed dearly but NEVER forgotten. Ma will ALWAYS be in my heart. With all my love to an amazing woman. Love you, your Putzer.

Cheryl left a message on November 15, 2015:

What I know about Mary, she is a wonderful mother, always caring, excepting and loving. She has a beautiful warm smile, always gave big hugs and kisses. She enjoyed fishing, gardening, watching the birds just outside her patio door and snuggling with her Rosie. I also know I will miss her dearly and I also know that heaven has another beautiful angel watching over us all.

Diane Thompson left a message on November 15, 2015:

Let me tell you a little about my mother she loved her flowers! She could not get enough of them. Right after the flowers were planted the hummingbirds would show up. She would try to outdue the neighbours to get the most hummingbirds. My father and her were great fisherman! Trout fishing was their Big challenge no stream to long for these two. My mother was a garage sale person you could put a bumper stickers on her car that stated this car stops for all garage sales. Most of all my Mom was all about her family she always said God first family second and GOD will take care of the rest. I will miss her but I know she is in heaven with all are other family members and friends. God bless ! See you in heaven!

"My loving Mother. She was always strong and there for me, to help an guide me throughout my life. She will always be missed, and in my heart forever. Mom had a special love for Hummingbirds, I will think of her often in May when they return for the summer. I wish we could have had more time with our Mother, but now she is at her new home in Heaven. At peace, no more pain or suffering.

michelle zimmermann left a message on November 14, 2015:

She loved with all of her heart. When she hugged you she would squeeze the stuffing out of you. As if saying I will never let go. She also would kiss you with her red lips and laugh at the Mark she left on your check. You will be deeply missed. I love grandma.

Gods Gift :Her name is Mary, a Strong Woman in every way. Weather it be cooking, cleaning, or cutting Hay. Every Sunday you go to church an see, Howard, Mary an 8 children, that is where they would be. I have seen Mary cooking, canning an mopping the floor. When all of a sudden, there was a knock on the door. They were her nieces an nephews, that wanted to stay. Although Mary had 8 children, she would not turn them away. She was a Woman of Great Pride. Then one day her health decided to slide. On Nov.12th she had pain No more. God said, I am opening my door.God took Mary, she needed a Rest. God knows he received the Very BEST.

Donald Rennhack Jr left a message on November 14, 2015:

It hurts my heart that she has left us but I am glad that she is finally in a better place, and in peace. Visiting her as of late often made me think of my childhood and visiting Wisconsin for the summers. Every time I arrived here, and departed back for home I was graced with the biggest hug and kiss that I believe any human could handle. Not to mention she always had to make my favorite meal for me. I still love those cabbage rolls! As we all know, there are a lot of friends and family... I think its quite amazing that she kept us all straight and cared for us all so deeply. She always asked how my life was going as well as my kids and was always lovingly concerned for everyone. I turned 37 today and realized that I wont receive that birthday card with $10 in it that I have gotten every year since I was a child. I will always love and miss you grandma
