Delores Wollman, age 89, died on August 16, 2016 at the Good Samaritan Center, Tripp, SD.
Delores was born December 22, 1926 to Christ F. and Emma (Roduner) Mettler on the family farm outside of Menno. She attended a one-room country school and later graduated from Menno High School in 1945. She married Walter Wollman on June 5, 1949 at Zion Reformed Church where she had been baptized and confirmed.
After high school, she worked at the drug store in Menno and later as a switchboard operator for the phone company before stopping work to be a full-time mom. After moving to Tripp in 1966 and the kids were all in school, Delores worked at the Good Samaritan Center for 24 years.
Delores was a faithful member of Emmaus Lutheran Church where she taught Sunday School for many years and was active in the Ladies Aid (LWML).
She and Walter shared their married life together for over 60 years and raised three children, Fredrick in San Diego and Robert and Susanne in Minneapolis. Delores was proceeded in death by her parents; husband Walter; five brothers: Harvey, Clifford, Gideon, Alvin and Marvin; three sisters: Edna Aisenbrey, Thilma Guthmiller, and Idella Goehring. She is survived by her three children; Fred’s wife Kathy and their two children: JC Niesley (her husband Adam) and Andrew (his wife Amber) and two great-grandchildren Noah and Juniper; her sister Dorothea Prouty of Sioux Falls; and sisters-in-law Gertie (Mrs. Clifford) Mettler of Menno and Margit (Mrs. Harvey) Mettler of Sahuarita, Arizona; brothers-in-law Harold (Lucille) and Lloyd (Darlene) Wollman and Duane Knittel.
Delores was a kind and loving person. She never said an unkind word or criticized anyone. She may not have agreed with all her children did but she allowed us to grow up and make our own mistakes and learn from them. In all that she did, she never cut corners. If you do something, do it right and never compromise. That was Delores. We will miss you Mom.
