Ramona "Mona" Mildred Mueller

February 15, 1933 — August 1, 2019

Ramona “Mona” Mildred Mueller was born on February 15, 1933 to Leonard and Marie (Schaal) Mueller at her grandparents’ home in Tripp, South Dakota. She was baptized into the Christian faith on March 10, 1933 in Tripp and was later confirmed at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Tyndall in 1947. She grew up in Tyndall and graduated from Tyndall High School in 1951. For a year, she attended Augustana University in Sioux Falls, South Dakota before completing her degree in education at St. John’s College in Winfield, Kansas. Following graduation, she taught at Trinity Lutheran School in Winfield for a year.
While attending college, she met her future husband, James Lee Mueller. In 1957, they were united in marriage and enjoyed 62 years of Christian ministry together. Her joy in ministry included serving as Sunday school leadership, Lutheran Women’s Missionary League, and Laborers for Christ.

Mona’s greatest joy in life was her family and service to her Savior, Jesus.
Mona passed peacefully into the arms of her Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, August 1, 2019 at the Good Samaritan Society of Tyndall at the age of 86 years.
