Elsie Wegner (nee Jehn)

November 26, 1930 – May 7, 2022
It is with great sadness that we share the passing of our mother, Elsie Wegner at the age of 91 years. She passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on May 7th. She had just moved into her new apartment three days prior, ready to start a new chapter of her life.
Many people will remember Elsie as a long time proprietor of the Schell Motel in the 70’s and the Midway Motel in the 80’s. She loved people and gardening. Her flowers were award-winning.
Left behind to grieve are her four children, Wylie Wegner (Mary Pilatzke), Doris (Martin) Voelkening, Lilly (Bill) Smith and Betty (Tony) Hicker; six grandchildren, one great-grandchild; one sister, Charlotte and one brother, Paul. Elsie you will be greatly missed! Rest in peace. You are with the angels in Heaven now.
