Wilma was born September 15, 1920 to John and Maria Keller. She married Harry Riezanstein on July 25, 1943 and had two daughters Carolyn and Larraine. Wilma and Harry spent many of their years farming together. In 1962, Wilma went to work for the Woolworth Company where she worked her way up to bookkeeper; a job she was very proud of.

Wilma loved her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren deeply; they were the center of her life. She will be remembered for her giving heart and spunky attitude. Her family has found comfort in knowing that she has not perished but is living her eternal life.

Survivors include her daughter and son-in-law Larraine and Terry Weimer; son-in-law Steve Houek; eight grandchildren; 12 great grandchildren; and many extended family members.

Wilma was preceded in death by her parents, husband Harry, daughter Carolyn and ten siblings.

The gift of your presence is all that Wilma would have wanted.
