Lives cannot be relived but memories are forever. Our families shared so much in days gone-by but it is as if it was yesterday. The more recent memories of you and Jack are real and heartwarming. My prayers are for you, Jack and your wonderful family, which is the true example of love. God Bless, Marge Deimling

I am a friend of her son Mike. He and I play racquetball along with others. Mike is a terrific guy with good values which reflects on how his mother raised him and his siblings. It is never easy to loose one's Mother. May she rest in peace.

Our sympathy to all of you. We have warm memories of your parents, Jack and Katie: parish picnics, festivals, and Christmas midnight masses at St John Fisher. We remember when they lived in the little house at church and then built their home. Can still remember watching our dad, John Hasz, and Grandpa George Wessling working with your Dad on the house. Great memories. We have been blessed to have them in our lives. Christ's Peace, The Hasz Sisters (Julie Lane, Patti Hope, and Ginnie Florko-Gallo)

My condolences, love and prayers for the entire Wellman family. Katie was one of a kind. Such a generous, giving soul who loved her family fiercely. She made everyone feel like a part of her family. I will miss you Katie, rest in perfection.

I want to tell you about the fun we had with Jack and Katie. Tom and I travelled with them many times . They were not only relatives, they were good friends. We went many places and saw many things all made more enjoyable because of their love and kindness. I grew up with Katie and will miss her every day. The long talks and great laughter we shared. :Love Nancy Dorgan

The patience she had to raise 11 children is inspiring. I love our memories of camping with her and her family at Cowan Lake. I was in awe of how she could remember every grandchild and great grandchildrens names and birthdates. We will miss you Katie.
