November 13, 1936 - August 21, 2020
It is with a heavy heart that we announce the passing of Mary Vollmuth, loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend on, August 21, 2020, in Mt Juliet, Tenn.
She was born in Flasher, N.D., on November 13, 1936, to Michael and Martina Waliser. Mary grew up on a farm in Selfridge, N.D., as one of fourteen children. From an early age, her vibrant and spirited nature could find the fun in every situation. Her quick-witted humor and zest for life filled those around her with laughter.
In 1946, this caught the attention of Richard (Dick) Vollmuth whom she would go on to marry September 27, 1955. They were blessed with six children and owned numerous grocery stores in North Dakota, where she enjoyed running the bakery. If she wasn’t in the kitchen, Mary could be found in her garden. Her family and friends would tell you she was the life of the party and brought laughter to every room she entered. In 1989, they moved to Hot Springs and owned Dick & Mary’s Super Foods until they retired. In retirement, she spent her time traveling with Dick and spending time with her grandchildren. She loved to cook big meals and gather around the table with those she loved.
Embracing her memory are her loving husband, Dick; daughters, Cathy (Myron) Mosset, and Mary (Dennis) Koopman; sons, Rick (Monica); John (Amanda); Bob (Angie); and daughter-in-law, Jean. She was adored by her grandchildren: Eric, Andrea, Caitlyn, Alex, Amanda, Davy, Lauren, Laura, Lacy, Rachel, Richy, Hannah, Lindsay, Wyatt and Jake, and great-grandchildren, Rayleigh, John Parker, Cora and Iris. Mary is survived by her siblings, George, Helen, Betty, Bob, Joe, John, Patty, Ronnie and Diane as well as the extended Vollmuth family.
Preceding her in death are her son, David; her parents; sister, Annie; brothers, Jim, Tony and Mike.
Mary will be deeply missed by her family and friends and will forever be in our hearts.
The family will be celebrating her life with a private service.
Condolences can be sent to Richard Vollmuth PO Box 359, Hot Springs, SD 57747.
