 Marie Agnes Moening was born March 7, 1919 in Melrose, Minnesota to John and Agnes (Renneker) Moening. She was united in marriage to Ted Welz on July 9, 1942 at St. Boniface Catholic Church in Melrose.  The couple owned and operated Welz Grocery from 1946 through 1974.  Marie then began working for the Melrose Public School working in the kitchen from 1974 until her retirement in 1994.

In her early years, Marie loved dancing.  Most recently, she volunteered at the CentraCare Health Nursing Home in Melrose and Meals on Wheels.  She also enjoyed playing cards, going to high school musicals, and most of all, loved the visits from all of her family.
