Dorothy Mais

July 1, 1924 — November 21, 2018

Wausau

Dorothy Mais, 94, joined her husband of 72 years Ferdinand (Ferdy) Mais in Heaven on Wednesday November 21, 2018.

She was born July 1, 1924 in Athens to the late Fred and Minnie (Bramm) Penno. On June 1, 1946 Dorothy married Feridand  Mais at Trinity Lutheran Church of Athens, he passed away October 26, 2018.

Dorothy was an excellent cook and seamstress. She also enjoyed needle crafting and attending to her flower gardens. She loved spending time with Ferdy at their cottage either fishing, bird watching or working in her flower beds. When they were not up north they were traveling. Prior to her retirement in 1979 Dorothy worked for national Foods.

Survivors include her son Brian (Joan), brother Carl Penno and many other family members and friends.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents, husband Ferdy, brothers Lawrence and Frederick Penno and step brothers Irvin and Walter Scherz.

We want to thank the staff of the Lake View Heights Unit at North Central Health Care for the excellent care and compassion they gave to both Dorothy and Ferdy during their stay.
