Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, May 31, 2017 at St. Columbanus Catholic Church in Blooming Prairie with Father Tom Niehaus officiating.  Visitation will be held from 4:00-7:00 p.m. on Tuesday, May 30 at Worlein Blooming Prairie Funeral Home and one hour prior to the service at the church on Wednesday.  Interment will be in Red Oak Grove Cemetery, rural Austin where she will be laid to rest beside her husband of 73 years.  Memorials can be directed to St. Columbanus Catholic Church or recipient of donor’s choice.
