Obituary for Myrtle Wendt

Myrtle Wendt
Myrtle Elaine Wendt, 75, of Staples, Minnesota, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, November 30, 2017. Born June 6, 1942 in Aliceton Township, North Dakota, she was the daughter of the late Charles & Adelaide (Williams) Rourke.

Left to cherish Elaine’s memory are her children: Shelli (Michael) Martin of Scott, AR, Dina (Chad) Wuornos of Big Lake, MN, and Rhonda (Russ) Ekholm of Staples, MN; grandchildren: Jeff (Chery Koran) Braun of Kimbolton, OH, Mike (Katie) Braun of Monticello, MN, Giselle (Justin) Hattesohl of Big Lake, MN, Corey Ekholm of Staples, MN, Kyle Ekholm of Staples, MN, and Sage Wuornos of Big Lake, MN; great grandchildren: Isaiah Braun, Shayla Braun, Dominic Braun, Joyce Braun, Finley Hattesohl, and Weylin Hattesohl; sister, Joanne Erbstoesser of West Fargo, ND; brother, Jack (Marie) Rourke of Verona, ND.
Elaine is preceded in death by her parents; husband Gary; brothers Donald, Charles, and Patrick.
Elaine held many professions throughout her life. She worked in retail both at the lunch counter for Woolworths and at the Northtown Hallmark; she provided administrative support for many of Gary’s entrepreneurial endeavors, and worked in an administrative role for many years with Kate-Lo Tile & Stone. One of Elaine’s biggest adventures was her travel across sea on board the USS General William Mitchell to live in Chitose, Japan. She loved to cook and bake and enjoyed crafting gifts for loved ones. Elaine always spoke the truth even if it wasn’t what you wanted to hear. She was a loving friend, kindhearted, humorous, and true.
Memorial services will be conducted 11:00 AM on December 7th, 2017 at Trinity Lutheran Church, in Staples, MN, with Pastor Robin Collins officiating. Family and friends are gathering one hour prior to the service at the church. Interment will be at the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery in Little Falls, MN.
The family will receive friends and family Thursday, from 10:00 AM until 10:45 AM at the church.
