Dolores May Winkelman was born April 15, 1928 in rural Ormsby to Dick and Ella (Krueger) Winkelman. She received her educa­tion in country school and graduated from Trimont High School in 1946. Dolo­res then attended beauty school in Mankato and be­gan working at Johnson’s Beauty Shop in St. James. She was united in mar­riage to Carroll Hesse on Sept. 9, 1949, at Grace Lu­theran Church in Ormsby. The couple moved to their farm northwest of Moun­tain Lake. Dolores loved living on the farm and working with her husband and three sons.
Carroll died March 20, 2000, and Dolores con­tinued to live on the farm. She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Darfur, where she was a Sunday School teacher and actively involved in many events and gather­ings there. Dolores’ faith and love for the Lord were both extremely important to her. She especially en­joyed any time spent with her children, grandchil­dren, and great-grandchil­dren playing Yahtzee or a game of cards. Dolores loved embroidering, being outside mowing lawn, and working with her garden and flowers. She was truly a gift to her family, friends, and so many others.
She is survived by her sons—Wayne and wife Sheri of Tyler, Mark and wife Linda of Moun­tain Lake, and Joel and wife Connie of Jackson; grandchildren—Michelle (Hesse) Lamont, Sara (Hesse) Pankonin, Michael Hesse, Daniel Hesse, Ste­ven Hesse, Nathan Hesse, Angela (Hesse) Hulett, Bradley Hesse, Justin Hesse, and Andrew Hesse; 15 great-grandchildren; and special friends Cora and Stella Johnson. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Caroll, and sisters Ardella Kolden and Marian Seab­erg.
Blessed be her memory.
