A sister Gertie Krebs, sisters in-laws Marlene Muesch and June (Charlie) Hagen.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her beloved husband Wallace in September of 2023, siblings Katie Pfeifer, Joe and Henry Muesch, Grandchildren, Claytin and Lexy Rettler; and many other cherished relatives and friends.
The family would also like to extend special thanks to Serenity Villa III, Julie her nurse and the entire staff. You made our mom’s final home a place where she was treated just like everyone’s Grandma. You were all of Grandma’s Angels and we thank you for all your love you showed to her!
