Remembering Mildred Wagendorf

Mildred (Milly) Schatz Wagendorf, retired supervisor at the Wilkerson Dining Center, died Aug. 28, 2013.

The youngest of seven children, she was born to John and Rose Schatz in Regent, N.D. She married Alvin Wagendorf and they lived in Regent with their two children, Scott and Shelley, until the family moved to Larimore. After Alvin died, Milly and Shelley began a new chapter of their lives in Grand Forks.

Milly was a dedicated wife and mother who always put the needs of her "precious children" before everything else. Her limitless caring and compassion was also evident when nourishing the needs of her "wonderful students" as a supervisor at University of North Dakota Wilkerson Dining Center. Milly was awarded the prestigious UND Meritorious Service Award as a testament to her amazing service.
