Mary Wenske

February 21, 1922 — February 27, 2014

Mary Margaret Novosad Wenske passed into eternal rest Thursday, February 27, 2014. Born in Shiner on February 21, 1922, to Joseph Novosad and Mary Pekar Novosad, she was the sixth of eleven children. She was a faithful member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Moulton, a member of the Christian Mothers' Society, Altar Society, a Promoter of the Miraculous Medal, and a Life Member and former Chaplain of Moulton Ladies' Auxiliary VFW Post 6971. She regularly attended Eucharistic Adoration. Mary attended Sunset School in rural Shiner. On October 22, 1946, she married the love of her life, Roman E. Wenske, and together they raised ten children on a farm and ranch outside of Moulton. Always hardworking, she managed taking care of small children, cooking dinner, and working in the cotton field near home simultaneously. One of the greatest gifts she gave to her family was her Catholic faith which she passed on by loving example to her children and grandchildren. Mary was a homemaker who enjoyed cooking noodle soup, homemade bread, and cinnamon rolls for her family. Her children and grandchildren's continual visits were her joy. She loved few things more than a small child in the house. She would fill them with great food and shower them with love and attention. She always looked forward to the times the whole family gathered at home, especially for Christmas, Easter, and on her and Roman's wedding anniversary. After her husband's passing she was the magnet attracting all back home to visit, eat, and tell stories about the old days, as well as what was new with the children and grandchildren. Survivors are her children: Raymond Wenske (Jo Anne) of Victoria; Irene Wenske (Eugene) of Yoakum; Melvin Wenske (Mary) of Hallettsville; Clarence Wenske (Diana) of Hallettsville; Elizabeth DeBord (Robert) of Houston; Michael Wenske (Mary) of Victoria; Ben Wenske (Elizabeth) of Moulton; Roman, Jr. (Ann) of Moulton; Pat Wenske (Mary Ann) of Moulton; Ernest Wenske, of Houston; sister, Ann Kocian of Shiner; brothers Paul Novosad of Shiner and Bennie Novosad of Shiner; 34 grandchildren and 28 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband of 58 years, Roman Wenske, Sr., infant twin brothers Joseph Novosad and John Novosad, brothers Frank Novosad, Edward Novosad, Edwin Novosad, Adolph Novosad, and sister, Margaret Surman. Visitation will begin at 5:00 pm on Saturday, March 1 at Smith Funeral Home in Moulton. The rosary will be at St. Joseph's Catholic Church at 6:30 pm Sunday, March 2nd, and the Funeral Mass also at the church at 10:00 am Monday, Father Gabriel Maison, JCD, officiating. The family keeps in special remembrance her devoted caregivers, Etta Williams and Felicia Alaniz. They would also like to thank Noelle Neskora, Larissa Tesch, and Ashely Dornak of Advanced Home Health, Hospice of South Texas, as well as her physicians, Dr. Maurice Wilkinson, Dr. Haresh Kumar, and Dr. Chelif Junor. Mary Wenske will be dearly missed by family and friends, but we are comforted in our sorrow by knowing that she heard these words of God when passing from this world to the next: "Well done, my good and faithful servant, now enter into the joy of your Master's house."
