Mrs. Wendt was born in Cameron, Texas on March 12, 1934 to Reinhold Mueck and Louise Nittman Mueck. She grew up in Cameron and along with her twin brother, Edwin, was the youngest of seven children. She graduated from Cameron Yoe High School in 1951 and moved to Houston where she worked at Port City State Bank for many years. Edna moved from Houston to the Waco area and she continued to work in banking. She was passionate about country and western music and dancing. At a dance, she met John Louis Wendt and they married in November 1969. They were married until his death in 1995. They were members of Zion Lutheran Church, in McGregor, for many years. After marriage, Edna became a homemaker, a mother, and she ran the family farm. Edna loved life on the farm. She would count her cattle daily and kept detailed records of everything pertaining to the farm. She was an avid gardener and had an extensive vegetable garden every year to prove it. Edna was a die hard Dallas Cowboys fan. She was a strong wife and mother and had a special relationship with her grandson, Lanie.
Preceding her in death were her husband, John Louis Wendt; her parents; sisters, Lillian Horelica, Elenora Mueck, Rita Hlavack; and brother, Paul Mueck.

I am so sorry that Mrs. Wendt has passed. She has been a darling and an inspiration to me from the moment I met her when she became a resident at Westview Manor. I will miss her immensely.
