Mary Hemminghaus

July 24, 1929 — April 19, 2024

Mary Hemminghaus, 94, passed away April 19, 2024 at Oakwood Manor . She was born July 24, 1929 to the late Carl and Elsie (Radig) Achterberg in the Town of Poygan, WI. She married Rueben Bintzler on June 28, 1947. Rueben preceded her in death on June 24, 1948. She later married Carl Hemminghaus on March 22, 1952 and the Lord blessed them with two children, Russell and Sandra. Carl preceded her in death on October 17, 1981.

Through the years, Mary worked at various places, including Hughes' Chocolates, Barber's Candy Shop, Kmart, and retiring from SNC Manufacturing.

Mary was a creative being, loving crafts and sewing. She especially enjoyed time spent with her family traveling, attending events, playing cards, and just being with them. Whatever was asked of her was done promptly and done with a smile! Breakfast at Hardees with her friends was a cherished time.

Mary was a member of Calvary Lutheran Church and the American Legion Auxiliary.

Mary is survived by her daughter, Sandy (Steve) Last; daughter-in-law, Marian Hemminghaus; grandchildren, Brian (Jenny) Hemminghaus, Hollie (Eric) Aronson, Andrew (Rachael) Last, and Melissa (Brian) Malnory; great-grandchildren Adrianna Geddes, Donovan Hemminghaus, Logan, Chase and Turner Aronson, Oliver Last, Bennett and Bryar Malnory; sister-in-law Agnes Potratz, and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and first husband, Mary is preceded in death by her husband Carl; son, Russell; brothers Elroy, Ivan, and John Achterberg; sisters Priscilla Carpenter, Lila Schultz, Rona Beduhn, and Doris Achterberg; brothers-in-law Arnold Carpenter, Clarence Schultz, Ronald Beduhn, and Leo Potratz; and sisters-in-law Kathleen Achterberg and Dorothy Achterberg.
