In memory of
Mary Ann Imdieke
Mary Ann Imdieke, 90 Elrosa August 27, 1926/August 3, 2017 Mary Ann Imdieke, 90, died Thursday, August 3rd, 2017, of pneumonia in Sauk Centre Minnesota. Mass of Christian Burial will be 11:00 am, Thursday, August 17th, at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Elrosa.  Visitation will be 4-8:00 pm, Wednesday at Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church with Parish Prayers at 7:30 pm.  Visitation will continue Thursday, one hour prior to the service.  Arrangements are with Johnson Funeral Home in Belgrade. www.hafh.org   Mary Ann was born in the farmhouse of her parents, Henry and Mary (Schoenberg) Braun on August 27, 1926, near Spring Hill, Minnesota.  She attended country school near their farm and graduated from Melrose High School at the age of 16.  After high school, Mary Ann helped with farm chores and thus was present when Bob Imdieke called on the farm to test the cow's milk for butterfat content. They fell in love and within a year they were married. The young couple moved just six miles west to Elrosa where they farmed, raising crops, cows and chickens. They also raised kids, 13 in their first 20 years of marriage.  Mary Ann was a wonderful mother and homemaker.  She took her turn leading her children's 4H Club; she also taught religion classes and participated in a Home Makers Club. Even while working around the farmhouse she wore red lipstick; she always looked pretty.   Mary Ann was a devout Catholic. Even when pregnant she fasted during lent, and she knelt on their hard living room floor when the family said the rosary. Mary Ann was a member of Sts. Peter and Paul Catholic Church and the Christian Mothers for many years.    When her last baby was grown and out of the house Mary Ann began a new career. Initially she studied to become a Licensed Practical Nurse, and a few years later she went back to school to achieve her RN degree, graduating at age 64. She worked into her seventies, and after she retired, friends and family benefited from her nursing skills.     During the last years of Mary Ann's life she resided at Fairway Pines Assisted Living in Sauk Centre, Minnesota, where both residents and staff loved her smile and cordial disposition. As health issues limited her independence, staff helped her maintain her chic appearance and they assisted her with daily activities.    Mary Ann is survived by 11 children, 27 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren, all of whom she still knew by name at age 90: Mary Ellen; Bonita (Thomas) Malterer, child, Ann; Norine (Gary) Mohs, children: Sara (Dave) Osterloh, Angela (Keith)Weber, and Kari (Gino) Untalan ; Gerianne (Hal) Roadman, children: Keri (Patrick) Ryan and Nicholas; Robert (Pamela), children: Brian (Heather), Kelli and Scott; Richard (Michelle), children: Jordan and Riane; Roger (Judy), children: Tracy (Troy) Knudsen, Katherine (Patrick) Hentges and Jaclyn; Rolland (Kimberly), children: Adam (Megan), Aaron, Anton (Shannon) and Austin; Amy Irons, children: Daniel (Stacy), Matthew and Jonah; Thomas; Todd (Julie), children: Brooks, Trent and Travis; daughters-in-law Pam Vrieze and Sally Imdieke, children: Dustin (Amber), Jonathan and Patricia; great-grandchildren: Austin, Brady and Kylie Osterloh; Abby, Karson and Garrett Weber; Raina, Kiera and Ivy Untalan; Hailey and Bella Ryan; Taylor, Luke and Abby Knudsen; Vince and Colie Hentges; Dalton, Tatum and Delaney Imdieke.
