Janet May Roeglin, age 76 of rural Waseca died on Monday, May 9, 2011 at her residence.

 Born on May 19, 1934 in Waseca, Minnesota, she was the daughter of George A. and Fayette E. (Wobschall) Bauman.  She attended rural Waseca County School District #46 and graduated from Waseca Central High School in 1951.  Janet married Stanley Roeglin on January 23, 1952 at St. John Lutheran Church in Waseca.  She and Stanley lived in Waseca before moving to a farm west of town.  She worked at various places in Waseca and retired from the E.F. Johnson Co. in 1998.  She enjoyed spending time with family, traveling to Salt Lake City to do family history and genealogy, and socializing with friends over lunch.  Janet was a lifelong member of St. John Lutheran Church in Waseca where she taught Sunday School and Bible School, was active with WELCA and the quilters, and also served on the church council.   She also volunteered with various other organizations.

On May 7, 2011 the world lost a wonderful man.  Dale was a retired third generation farmer, lifelong resident of New Richland, who raised hogs, loved his chickens, took great pride in his perfect fields.  Dale was born to Seth and Sara Winegar on November 15, 1923. He was preceded in death by Catherine Doyle Winegar after 38 years of marriage.  

An avid hunter and fisherman his whole life, Dale was also a prolific gardener and a bird-watcher.  He was a Texas Hold ‘Em champ, and there was no better entertainment than watching a good Twins, Vikings, or New Richland Cardinals game.

Dale was unassuming and strong-willed; he survived 5 different cancers.  He taught us to accept fate with good humor and without complaint. There is an empty chair at the farmers’ table of wisdom at Blondie’s café.

He is survived by his wife, Verona Tufte Winegar; they married on September 29, 1990.


John M. Goldsberry, 82, passed away on April 9, 2011. A visitation was held Friday, April 15, 2011 from 5-7 p.m. and a Memorial Service was conducted at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 16, 2011 at Cloverdale Funeral Home in Boise, ID.

He was born in the town of Geneva, MN to Larry and Sarah Helen Goldsberry. While there he farmed and also worked for IBM in Rochester, MN. Later moving to Oregon he worked for Trailways Bus Lines in Oregon and Boise and was a messenger for Idaho First National Bank in Boise until his retirement.

Being an avid reader he was well versed in many subjects. He was a kind and gentle man and loved his children and always looked forward to the get togethers with them. He liked country music and playing the organ. The highlight of his day was to gather at the mall for the coffee hour with his friends.

Lacinda "Cindy" M. Meyman, 54, of Owatonna, died Thursday, May 5, 2011 at Homestead Hospice House, where she received such wonderful care after courageously fighting a cancerous brain tumor since 2009.

She was born July 15, 1956 in Albert Lea, Minnesota; the daughter of W. Manfred and Shirley (Martin) Jensen. 

A special “thank you” is given to Mike Ryan, Cindy’s very special friend, who moved in to take care of her so she could spend this last year and six months in her own home.

As a baby, she lived by Freeborn, MN and later moved near Hartland. Later, the family moved to rural Ellendale. Cindy attended grade school in Freeborn, Hartland, Geneva, and Ellendale. After graduating from Ellendale High School in 1974, she went on to  graduate from Austin Junior College.
