Adella Wilhelmina Nickelena (Erps) Wold was born on a farm in Hutchinson County north of Scotland, South Dakota on Sunday, September 24, 1911. She was the youngest of six children born to August and Lena (Dockweiler) Erps. In 1915, the family moved from the farm into Kaylor. Adella attended the Kaylor Public School through the 10th grade. In March of 1928, they moved to Scotland. She worked in various homes in Scotland for several years. Adella was united in marriage to Albert Wold on January 21, 1931 and they raised a family of three children. She worked for Wold’s Grocery Store for nine years. She worked at the Scotland High School for seven years, first in the school lunchroom and later with her husband, “Ep,” as a janitor, retiring in 1964. She was a member of the United Methodist Church in Scotland and the Scotland VFW Auxiliary. Adella passed away on Tuesday, July 24, 2012 at the Landmann-Jungman Memorial Hospital in Scotland, having achieved the age of 100 years and 10 months.
Adella is survived by her three children: daughter Mina Treick of Ohio, son Gary Wold of South Dakota, and son Gale Wold of Texas; and three grandchildren: grandsons Scott Treick of Ohio and Tim Wold of Montana, and granddaughter Rhiannon (Wold) Gonzalez of Texas.
In addition to her parents, August and Lena Erps, she was preceded in death by her husband, Albert “Ep” Wold in 1993; a grandson, Steven Treick; a son-in-law, Ronald Treick; four brothers: Bill, Emil, Ben and Edward; and a sister, Malinda (Erps) Lerssen.
In lieu of flowers, the family prefers memorials to the Good Samaritan Society of Scotland or the Landmann-Jungman Memorial Hospital in Scotland.
Gary, I was sorry to hear of your mothers passing away and would like to extend my deepest sympathy and prayers to your and your entire family. What a long life your mother had to live to be over 100 years old. May all of your wonderful memories be a source of peace for you now. Lois Polfus

I have fond memories of Adella and "Ep", not only from church but from school as well. They were both always so pleasant and nice to us kids. It was wonderful to see that Adella had reached 100+ years. We should all be so healthy. My sympathies to her family in the lost of their dear matriarch. Nancy

Thoughts and prayers go with you on the loss of your Mother. No matter how old, it is sad to have our parent/s gone from our life. Mina, I remember fondly being a twirler for the SHS band, and you, our leader, what fun! Be proud to have had such a loving Mother, I heard about her 100th birthday celebration and what an honor that had to have been.

We extend or sincere condolences to the Wold families --- your mother and father were very dear, gracious, and loving people. Yvonne and I remember them well; Yvonne and Mina were friends and classmates in high school. I remember my first acquaintance with them when I delivered the Yankton P & D to your home; I was in grade school--couple years later I worked with your father at Wold's store--stacking shelves,cleaning and delivering groceries in the Model A Ford delivery truck. Then in high school I worked part time on Saturdays helping your father clean and polish the high school. I have so many fond and thankful memories. Yes, Gary, you were a few years younger, but you always were friendly and respectful just as your parents were. Fond memories linger in our minds and hearts. Bless you all and give thanks for the loving parents you had. Ray & Yvonne
