Elizabeth Margarite (Wollschlager) Radermacher was born on February 3, 1928, at home in Vernon Township of Grant County, SD, near Revillo, to Bruno and Agnes (Roggenbuck) Wollschlager. She grew up on the family farm and when  she was 16 years old Liz moved to Minneapolis and lived there until she was 21.

On June 25, 1949, Liz was united in marriage with Glenn Adolph Radermacher and the two made their home on a farm near Rosen, MN. Together, Glenn and Liz were blessed with 10 children. In 1983, Glenn and Liz moved to their home in Ortonville and remained there until Liz’s health no longer enabled her to live by herself.

Always a hard worker, Liz worked as a dedicated wife and mother to her family. She also helped Glenn with farm work and chores. When the children were all of school age, Liz went to work part-time for her sister, Lucy, as a waitress at the Ortonville golf course and also at Club 7-75.

Elizabeth was always doing things for her family and for other people. She was a proud member of St. John’s Catholic Church, St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, St. Monica’s Society, Christian Mothers, Bowl of Love, and Crafty Critters. Liz was gifted with sewing, quilting, and crochet and crafted many beautiful works. She enjoyed playing cards, crafting, and looking after her garden. Most of all, Liz loved golfing.

Left to cherish Liz’s memory are her children: Linda Spanier of St. Cloud, MN; Steven (Genevieve) Radermacher of Rio Verde, AZ; Tim (Marsha) Radermacher of Montevideo, MN; the late Joe (Kris) Radermacher of Ortonville, MN:  Julie (Mike) Beninga of Marietta, MN; Glen Jr. “Bud” (LuAnn) Radermacher of Bellingham, MN; Kate Steinke of Peoria, AZ; Paul (Dianne) Radermacher of Ortonville, MN; and Marty (Susan) Radermacher of Atlanta, GA; 14 grandchildren; 26 great-grandchildren; along with many nieces, nephews, and in-laws.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Glenn in 2012; daughter, Mary Radermacher in infancy; son, Joseph Radermacher; sisters: Agnes Pillatzki, Lucy Karels, Marie Nilsson; and brothers: Jim Wollschlager, Ray Wollschlager, and Eddie Wollschlager.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials in Liz’s name be given to Alzheimer’s Association, Rice Hospice, or American Cancer Society.
