Obituary of Walter John Gillund
Wally Gillund was born August 5, 1943 in Minneota, Minnesota to Walter and Mary (Tholen) Gillund and sadly passed away on November 6, 2020 at the age of 77. Wally grew up on a farm and graduated from Minneota High School in 1961. After high school, Wally attended Universal Trade School in Omaha, NE after which time he began a successful 49-year career as owner and operator of Lehman Service Company. 56 years ago, Wally married Rita DeMartelaere starting their life in Lincoln, NE. Together they enjoyed raising their family, traveling, gardening and more recently NASCAR. They love spending time with their grandkids and great grandkids. Wally especially enjoyed having the little ones sit on his lap. He also enjoyed many years of fishing, boating and time with friends. Wally will be deeply missed by his wife Rita, his four daughters Connie (Brent) Wenzl, Janell Gillund, Rhonda (Mark) Hinrichs and Christy (Randy) Koranda, twelve grandchildren and five great grandchildren. His love of family and friends has inspired us all. Due to COVID restrictions, there will be no visitation and a private service for immediate family on Wednesday, November 25 at 10 am.
