Vangie Ohrmundt was a woman who never sat still.  Her life was dedicated to her family, her church, and her community.  Whether it was doing the hundreds of chores around the family farm, making Friday morning breakfasts for over ten years at Aspirus Hospice House, starting the quilting club and being an active member of St. John Lutheran Church, village of Maine or working as a teacher's aide at Thomas Jefferson School for 16 years, Vangie lived life to the fullest.  

She was born June 28, 1924 in the town of Stettin to the late Albert and Alice (Wendorf) Erdmann. After graduating from Marathon High School she attended Marathon County Normal School graduating in 1943.  For three years Vangie taught in one room schools in the town of Stettin area .On June 15, 1946 she married Charles Ohrmundt at Trinity Lutheran Church in the town of Stettin.  In 1953, they purchased a dairy farm in the town of Maine where they raised their four children. She took great pride in taking care of her family especially through her wonderful cooking and baking. Upon high school graduation, every grandchild looked forward to receiving one of her special handmade quilts. In her free time, Vangie enjoyed gardening, fishing with Charles, solving the daily word Jumble in the newspaper, and following all the Wisconsin sports teams. She also loved to travel, especially going to Germany, Australia and New Zealand.
