obit-Veeser-PPauline M. Veeser, a resident of Little Falls, passed away Monday, April 22, 2013, at St. Otto’s Care Center in Little Falls.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Friday, April 26, at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Little Falls, with Father Joe Herzing officiating.
Aug. 21, 1937, during a stormy night, the world welcomed Pauline “Polly” Mary Veeser (Schulz). Born to a small farming family from Faribault, she was the fourth child out of eight children. Her parents were Edgar and Caroline (Hurt) Schulz. Polly’s life spanned three quarters of a century. She enjoyed many things in life. She was an avid reader, gardener, painter, teacher, master Scrabble® player, human rights advocate and most of all a cherished and beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Polly lived by the motto that holidays were to be celebrated with much fanfare and food, always food. She graduated from Bethlehem Academy and proceeded to earn a four-year teaching degree from the College of St. Benedict. Polly taught in a rural one room schoolhouse near Rice. She continued to teach throughout her life including Sunday school for Our Lady of Lourdes Church. Polly brought seven children to this world, but over the years she acquired many “almost” children.
She is survived by her children, Jean (Mike) Veeser-Lynn of Lakeland, Fla., David (Denise) Veeser of Oak Harbor, Wash., Scott Veeser of Little Falls, Carolyn (Jeff) Veeser-Egbide of Maplewood and Jennifer (Ken Lashinski) Veeser of Ogilvie; 13 grandchildren; nine great-grandchildren and her “almost” children.
She joins her sons, Joseph and James Veeser; parents; her lifetime friends Normagene and Nancy and scores of souls she touched along her life’s journey.
Dear Mom,
Thank you for life.
