Not sure what to say?

THinking of all of you these days-Though I left MN in '75, your Mom & I continued to be in touch. I always so enjoyed the visits- with her cheerful nature & bravery facing the challenges she had in the last years. I will always hold the jokes and conversations we shared in our phone conversations across the miles in my special memories of your mom.. Carol Scanny

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Wensing kids, I have not seen your mother in years but I have lots of memories of her. She was one of my favorite neighbors growing up. I also remember whenever she was a sub at school I had to be good or she might tell my mom. She was truly a great women. May god bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Mrs. Wensing was a great substitute teacher who really knew how to teach and how to keep a bunch of bratty grade school kids in line, at Pillsbury Elementary School in N.E. Minneapolis. I have thought of her often through the years. May God bless the family. I am sure you will hold your memories close. Be grateful for all the many years you got to have her. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Dear Wensing Family
My condolences on the passing of your Mom. I remember her well from our earlier days at Trinity - and as a substitute teacher at Northeast. She was encouraging, and had a great smile (as her picture show) and laugh. I'm happy to learn that she took her zest for life with her when she left Northeast. Take care

The staff of Halvorson-Johnson Funeral Homes extends their deepest sympathies to the family & friends of Mary Ellen Wensing.
