Mary Ann Wildeman's Obituary


MARY ANN WILDEMAN, January 26, 1931- May 15, 2014. After 83 years Jesus saw that our dear mother was growing tired and decided that it was time to take her home to be with her husband and heavenly family. She was a caring loving mother, grandmother and great grandmother who always put her family first. We will miss you so much and all the words of wisdom and lessons that you taught us. Beautiful memories of you will live forever in our hearts.
Mom was born at home in Round Lake MN to Herman and Marie Posorske.  She attended Round Lake public school and graduated in 1949. After school mom worked at an office supply store for a short time, and then at the A & W Root Beer stand; where she met the love of her life.
Mary Ann was united in marriage to Arthur Wildeman on September 2, 1951 at St. Matthew’s Lutheran Church in Worthington. After their marriage the couple farmed in Ransom Township. Later, after she had raised her children she worked for Sather’s candy company for 12 years.  
Mom and Dad enjoyed many things together such as bowling, square dancing, roller skating, fishing trips to Canada, gardening, and canning. For 20 years they had a second home in Texas where they met many new friends who they considered their second family. This is where they acquired their favorite board game, joker, which has been passed on to us kids and grandkids. Mom was also very active in her childrens’ lives bringing them to school and church activities.
  Mom was also a member of the Bigelow Auxiliary and the PTA.  She was a very dedicated wife, mother and grandmother. Her greatest joy in life was spending time with her husband, children and family. She was a former member of St. Matthew Lutheran Church and currently a member of the Solid Rock Assembly Church in Worthington
   Mary Ann is survived by her children, Jim (Rhonda) Wildeman, Olive Branch, MS; Jerry (Janet)  Wildeman, Sibley, IA; Debbie Kunkel, Little Canada; Lori (Doug) Nau, Worthington; Greg (Patti) Wildeman, Lake Park, IA; Paula (Denny) Engesser, Worthington and Scott Wildeman, Bigelow; 18 grandchildren, Marc, Brandon, Cody, Chris, Craig, Bradley, Tracy, Tim, Jenny, Kimberly, Kirsten, John, Eric, Jessica, Jimmy, Jason, Michael and  Britney; 14 great grandchildren;  and one sister, Myrna Bisch, Pipestone.

I have been thinking of you all since the 1st of April. The weather has been cool and wet. As you all know I had a  rough winter at Magnolia and when we got home I was immediately hospitalized with congestive heart failure and pneumonia so spent a week there, then transferred to a nursing home for rehab, then an apartment where I waited my turn for an assisted living bed so yesterday the family came and moved me again- this time I hope I don’t have to move again. Makes me realize I did the right thing selling my trailer because I sure couldn’t come down now.  Enjoy the news etc. and will always have fond memories of my Magnolia friends.

Prepare a hot charcoal or gas grill. Grill steak and onions, turning once and basting halfway through cooking, until onions are browned (6 to 8 minutes) and meat is done the way you like it, 10 to 12 minutes for medium-rare (cut to test). Makes 4 servings.

Char has been very ill since they returned to Michigan. Low hemoglobin and other blood issues have been the problem. Things have now started to turn around for the better but they still need our love, support and prayers.

Tax increase

The following letter was posted on Rio Valley Estates Blog. I am posting it because the info may be useful to Magnolia Park mobile owners also.
From Rio Valley Estates:
Posted: 05 May 2014 07:19 PM PDT

I have been gathering data on fair market value of Mobile Homes in Rio Valley Estates as you know.

After talking to the Appraisal District and other I would like to make the following recommendation.

We all use a Tax Consultant from McAllen who has been used in the past by a owner in Rio Valley Estates successfully. The firm is Wilkins and Co. Mr Wilkins will only represent Mobile Home Owner as a group where they are in one location. Because of the time remaining he request one person head up our group and provide him with the name and address of each person requesting him as their agent. His fee is 40% of the tax savings he can provide. Ex. If your tax for 2013 was 400 and the 2014 tax is 800. If he gets the tax reduced to 600 you would owe him $80.00. If he doesn't save you anything you don't owe anything. Once he has the name he will prepare all the forms required with data filled out and send them to each person at there home mailing address. He said he would not represent anyone who has filed a protest already, although if you have filed the protest he can provide a form to withdraw your protest and file a new one in the group. He stated that it was much easier to have all the protest together to allow him to use the same data to get the fair market value reduced.  

I will act as the one who forwards all the names of Mobile owners who would like to pursue this approach. Any amount he gets the tax reduced will be for more than one year unless the tax district tries again next year, and with his 40% and our tax for the year we will be out the same money this year and less next year.

I will not be paid anything as a referral fee, I will just act as a go between.
If you would like to join in this group please contact me by email by next Monday May 12 in order to get the names to Mr Wilkins.

If you know anyone who does not read this blog, please contact them to pass this information along.

Fairy Tale endings

I copied and pasted these picture into this post. I previewed it and it seemed okay but sometimes when I do it this way it does not work. Also if you rely on email to read the posts it may not work well and in that case you may want to try going to www.brooker3.blogspot.com and see what it looks like from there. If none of these things work, let me know and I will take it off. It is cute though.


Cinderella is divorced.

 
 Snow-white has not been so lucky

Little-Red-Riding-Hood hasn�t seen the Wolf since


Sleeping Beauty is still asleep

  
 
The Little Mermaid has met a sad fate   
 

 Barbie celebrated her 50th Birthday, this year
 
Little Tweety is 60 years old
 
So is Superman

Wonder Woman is menopausal

As for Batman and Robin they�re living it up at the Nursing Home
