Here’s to a woman of God, to a woman who loves a man named Wally, to a mother of six and a sister to nine. Here’s to Ellie Waldorf, 82 years young, who has entered into the gates of heaven with a smile on her face, a giggle in her voice and a dance in her step.
Ellie was born in Perham, Minn., on June 25, 1936, to John and Lori Kunza. She married Wally Waldorf in 1959 and they spent most of their married life in Winona, Minn., and the past five years in Edina, Minn. She gave birth to their children, Reine Waldorf, Mike Waldorf, Mark Waldorf, Marty Waldorf (Liz Delano), Rachel Goetzmann (Mike), and Rosemary Hilbrands (Eric). On August 15, 2018, she passed in Minneapolis, Minn., surrounded by many of her loved ones.
A celebration of Ellie’s life will be held on Wednesday, August 22, at 2 p.m., at St. Richard’s in Richfield, Minn,. with visitation starting at 1 p.m.
