Dorothy and Maurice Omdoll

Always insisting on being together, Maurice Omdoll, 73, and his wife of 50 years, Dorothy, 69, passed on within 25 hours of each other Wednesday, Dec. 7, 2005, and Thursday, Dec. 8, 2005.

They are survived by their children, Sandy Luedke, Brenda Wise, Morry Omdoll and Rodney Omdoll; their grandchildren, Rob and Madison Luedke and Ricky and Katie Wise; and Morry’s sister, Vera Embreu, and her family.

Morry worked for 34 years as a head supervisor at Ethan Allen School for Boys in the town of Delafield and retired to Dousman to raise horses. Dorothy had previously managed the deli of the Town And Country, and had followed her passion for painting in her retirement.

They loved each other until the day of their passing and were very much loved by their friends and family.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 17, at All Saints Lutheran Church, one-eighth mile west of Highway 83 on Highway E in Wales.
