Thank You

Thank You

Our dear Dad, John Conzemius, passed away Dec. 13,2018, in Wadena-the town he called home for 68 years. Living in the Wadena community was a gift that he, and we, are forever grateful! A recent high-light was our father's induction into the inaugural Wadena - Deer Creek "Athletic Hall of Fame" last Sept. at the homecoming football weekend. He was very proud to be a part of the amazing class of inductees! We could not believe the attendance at the parade and game. The support the community of Wadena demonstrated for the school, athletes and honored guests was exceptional! As graduates of Wadena High School we, too, were very proud! At the core of our dad's life was his faith. He treasured the St. Ann's Catholic community. His funeral Mass, memorial service and reception were personal and comforting. The welcoming nature of the parishioners at the funeral and the support given to dad over the years was appreciated and exemplifies how Jesus loves us unconditionally. A special thanks to all the caregivers at Fair Oaks, Tri-County Hospital and The Meadows. Growing up in the Wadena community was a gift and we are forever grateful for all of you! Even though there is no longer a Conzemius living in Wadena, we will always feel connected. It will always be "Home" for us, and that is because of all of you, the people of Wadena. Thank You! Cathy Conzemius Peterson, Tom and Mark Conzemius.
