Loretta T. Gilmeister, age 96, died Monday, August 31, 2020, at her home surrounded by her family.

She was born on September 23, 1923, in Rosholt, Wisconsin, to John and Rose (Augustiniak) Trzebiatowski. On November 6, 1943, she married Max Gilmeister at St. Adalbert Church in Rosholt. Max and her farmed together until 1990. She loved traveling, planning dinners, and sitting around the bonfire roasting hot dogs and reminiscing. Her favorite place was sitting in her rocking chair in the lake house her late-husband, Max, and she built. We take comfort knowing she is reunited with him and her siblings after many years apart.

Survivors include four children, Maxine Gilmeister (Tony Steger), Joan (Frank) Murphy, Robert (Cherie) Gilmeister, and Lorrie (Paul) Byers; eight grandchildren Andy (Katie) Murphy, Ryan (Jes) Murphy, Michael Murphy (Julie Puzon), Ally Byers, Max Byers (Teresa Schneider), Shanta Steger, Sarah Steger, Robyn (Tommy) Wartman; 9 great-grandchildren; and her sister Jeanette (Thomas) Young.

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Max Gilmeister on January 3, 1990; five brothers, Hank, John, Frank, Ted, and Anthony; and three sisters, Clara, Evelyn, and Patricia.

In lieu of flowers, please do an act of kindness for someone in need.

The memory looks like it’s mine, but it’s from my husband Pat McAndrews.

When I was a senior in high school, 2 of my friends and I traveled to Rosholt on our spring break. I fondly remember Loretta‘s kindness and hospitality which meant a lot to me. Of all my aunts and uncles she reminded me the most of my own mother.
The picture my wife posted is Aunt Loretta and my mother, Clara, on my mother’s 80th birthday.

“Grandma Loretta” (as she was known to by many fondly) may be gone from our sight, but never from our hearts. What comes to mind when her name is mentioned is nothing but pure kindness, loving heart and a joy to be around. I will remember her always in the kitchen making great dinners with lots of love. Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire family. RIP sweet “Grandma Loretta”😢😇🙏💓
