Ann Marie (Luedtke) Wood, 84

Ann Marie Wood (Luedtke) passed away peacefully at her home July 17, 2020.

Ann was the youngest of the four children of H. Walter and Thora Luedtke. She was born on a farm in Fairmont MN where she graduated from high school. She married her late husband Charles Wood, also of Fairmont on July 17, 1953. In 1971 Chuck and Ann moved their family to a farm on Pleasant Lake in New Prague from Minneapolis.

Ann loved to read books. She kept Lori the Librarian busy gathering books for her to check out. She was sure to read any book that had won an award. The garden also kept Ann busy with freezing and canning. Ann was an excellent cook and the family had frequent dinner guests to the farm.

Ann's sister, Dolly also lived in New Prague. Over the years they would share "cocktail hour", gossip, and return trips to Fairmont for visits and class reunions together. Ann was fortunate to have all of her children, grandchildren and many relatives and friends live nearby.

Whenever a storm would blow in Ann would say, "It's going to be good sleeping tonight". She also loved fresh cut flowers in the house and believed farm dogs belonged inside with the rest of the family.

Ann is survived by her children Gwen Wood, Greg (Christie) Wood, Graham Wood, Gretchen (Chuck) Wessel and Chuck (Pam) Wood. Also by her grandchildren Melissa, Natalie & Olivia Wood and Julie, Jamie & Jason Wessel. She is greatly missed.

Her family will hold a private memorial at a later date.
