Obituary for Wanda Nordmeyer

Wanda Maxine Nordmeyer was born August 30, 1930 to Arnt and Nettie (Ruen) Larson in Tyler, Minnesota. She was baptized and confirmed in First English Lutheran Church in Tyler. Her faith shaped her attitude and actions throughout her life and she has passed her trust in God and those Christian values onto her children and grandchildren.

She grew up in Tyler and graduated from Tyler high school in 1948. She went to teachers training and taught in a county school near Tyler. On Oct 7, 1950 Wanda married Eldon Nordmeyer. Their union was blessed with 62 years of life together and five children. The couple farmed near Lake Benton, MN until 1972 when they moved to their Lakeview Street home in Lake Benton. She worked at Lake Benton School until she purchased and operated the Valley V Store in Lake Benton. The store was known for Wanda’s custom embroidery.

Eldon passed away Oct 23, 2012. Although this changed her life and she missed him greatly, she carried on as she continued to live in Lake Benton. On Thursday, August 24, 2017 Wanda died peacefully with family at her side at her daughter’s home in Redwood Falls, Minnesota, six days before her 87th birthday. She described herself as the last leaf on the tree as she was the last of her siblings and cousins. What a reunion they must be having now!

Those who knew and loved her would tell you she enjoyed fishing, dancing, playing cards, holidays and reunions with family, watching birds and wildlife, and spending time with friends. She had a sweet tooth and started every day with coffee and chocolate. She’d best be described as kind and selfless.

Wanda is lovingly remembered by her children, Peggy Schwarz of Knoxville TN, Nancy (Gale) Wilson of Sheridan WY, Jane Nordmeyer of Minneapolis MN, James (Sandy) Nordmeyer of Dayton MN, and Joan (Dan) Koster of Redwood Falls, MN; 10 grandchildren, Michelle (Bill) Scoby, Jennifer (Heath) Harden, Kelly Krantz, Jason Wilson, Zachary (Samantha Olson) Krog, Amber (Brian) Stuart, Brooks (Sherri Bloomquist) Nordmeyer, Jackson (Sarah) Koster, Bailey (Justin) Theis, Alec Koster; and 11 great grandchildren Bridgette (Jordan Bennett) Schwarz, Alex Sensing, Brandon Krantz, Dakota Scoby, Trey Scoby, Louis Stuart, Miles Stuart, Brianna Bloomquist, Lillietta Lyngstad, Harriet Krog, and Kason Koster. She was preceded in death by her husband, Eldon; her parents; Arnt and Nettie; and her siblings, Allen Larson, Martin Larson, Norma Nielsen, Erma Olson, Lue Hoiland, and Alvin and Bertha Larson (infant twins).

Blessed be her memory.
