Dorothy Wiese

March 25, 1924 — August 30, 2013

Dorothy Mae, daughter of William and Hulda (Ohrt) Ruhde, was born March 25, 1924 at Manning, Iowa. She attended school in Manning and then started working at Priebe's Hatchery in Manning. She and Rockley Wiese were united in marriage during World War II. While her husband was in the service, and a prisoner of war, she lived with her parents in Manning. After her husband returned from the service, they lived and raised their family of three boys in various communities in western and southern Iowa. Dorothy was a hard worker and always found work cleaning homes. When Rockley's health began to fail while living in Lenox, the family planned their move back to Manning. He died in 1978 and the family completed their move home. Dorothy was a member of the First Presbyterian Church in Manning. She was a great fan of the Chicago Cubs and the University of Iowa Hawkeyes. Above all, she enjoyed playing Bingo and spending time with her family. Dorothy lived a very healthy life until early 2013, when she started to fail. She became a resident of the Manning Plaza Nursing Home, where she died on Friday, August 30, 2013 at the age of 89 years, 5 months and 5 days. Preceding her in death are her parents; husband Rockley Wiese; son Gary Wiese; sister Arlene Spack; brother Harold (June) Ruhde and sister in law Eunice (Lester) Meggers. She is survived by her sons Jack (Nancy) Wiese of Omaha and Brad Wiese of Manning; daughter in law Sherry Wiese of Sacramento, CA; four grandchildren; sisters Marge Loftus of Manning and Vergene Hausman of Halbur; nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
