Lillian Wondra Obituary

Lillian Marie Wondra (Schneiter), age 95 years, of Mayville was called home to be with the Lord on February 11, 2024, at Prairie Ridge Assisted Living Facility in Mayville surrounded by her loving family.

Lillian was born on May 28, 1928, in the town of Lomira to Ernst and Hilda Schneiter (Schwartz).  She was united in marriage to Earl Peter Wondra on May 3, 1947, at St. Andrew Catholic Church in Leroy.  Earl passed away in 2007; four months before their 60th Wedding Anniversary.

Lillian was a homemaker, she could reuse or recycle anything, and take on any necessary farm duties.  She was also an accomplished sewer, quilter, gardener, canner, and baker.  Her Schaum Torte was requested for every gathering.  Lillian loved her cows, cats, and parakeets.  She had a passion for perennial gardens, as well as for mowing lawn, and continued mowing on her riding lawn mower until she was 93 years old.  

Lillian was a longtime member at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Mayville and served on numerous church committees over the years.
