Michael Wedekind Obituary

On September 8, 1951 James and May Wedekind welcomed their first son, Michael James.  He was later joined by brothers John, Ruth (Justin, Micah and families), Joe, Lori (Emilee, Seth and families)

Mike enjoyed helping on the farm and being outside.  After graduation he started working at Bandag, Inc.  He was drafted into the Army and served two years.  He came back to Bandag where he completed a 28 year career.

In 1998 he married Nancy Whalley and moved to Pella to join a new family which included three stepsons – Chad, Kyle and Jonathan.  His family became complete with three daughters-in-law – Jamie, Erin and Emily followed by six grandchildren – Adrian, Brennen (Chad), Nolan, Nicholas (Kyle) and Lydia, Peter (Jonathan)
