She loved traveling with her devoted husband, especially to their home away from home in Lajitas (far West Texas). She was a very active member in the Home Demonstration Council for Victoria County. Working in her beautiful yard, mowing the grass on her riding lawn mower, feeding the deer every evening were just some of her many joys on the ranch.

Wedemeier and Oscar C. “Odie” Wedemeier Jr. She is survived by her son, Tommy Schlein and wife Faye. Mimi dearly loved her grand-children and great grandchildren. Grandchildren are Eva Marie Hanes of Waco, Texas, Thomas (Toby) Schlein Jr. of Raleigh North Carolina, Jill Marie Crain and husband Christopher Crain of Cuero, Texas. Great grandchildren: Jake Thomas Hanes of Waco, Mitchell Crain, Harrison Crain, Landon Crain and Annie Crain of Cuero.

Pallbearers: Christopher Crain, Mitchell Crain, Jake Thomas Hanes, Blake Hanes, Bill Obsta, Billy Atzenhoffer, Tommy Hermes and Ronnie Acosta. Honorary pallbearer’s Bubba Atzenhoffer, Oscar Scherer, Joe Lopez and family physician, Dr. John McNeill.

The family wishes to thank Mimi’s wonderful caregivers for their devotion and excellent care over the last 5 years: Reyes Sherman, Pilar Martinez, Sally Cantu, Janie Garcia, Raven Solano, Pleashette Todd and others. Also, Joe and Sylvia Lopez and Hospice of South Texas for their gracious care and concern.
