Loretta Windschitl

Loretta A. Windschitl, 89, of Pillager, died Monday, Dec. 4, 2017, at Riverside Assisted Living.
Mass of Christian Burial will be Monday, Dec. 11, at 11 a.m., at St. Michael’s Catholic Church in Motley with the Rev. Joe Korf officiating. Family and friends are welcome to gather Sunday evening, from 5 p.m to 7 p.m., with parish prayers at 6 p.m., at Brenny Funeral Home in Staples, and one hour prior to the Mass on Monday at the church.

Loretta Windschitl was born Jan. 24, 1928, in New Ulm, the daughter of Isidore and Mary (Preisinger) Faerber. After graduating from high school, she married Arnold Windschitl on April 27, 1948, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in New Ulm. In addition to raising her family, Mrs. Windschitl taught Sunday school. After moving from Stewart to Motley in 1975, she began sharing her cooking skills, working at a number of local restaurants.
Mrs. Windschitl liked gardening and canning. She also enjoyed baking and sewing, as well as playing bingo (she was Queen) and cards. Watching soaps, game shows and the birds were some of her favorite pastimes — and during Christmas she loved to watch Christmas movies. She loved her family, especially the family gathering held each summer.
She will be missed by her children, Gary Windschitl of Motley, Ralph Windschitl of Motley, Tony Windschitl of Menahga, Bob Windschitl of Marble, Leo (Cyndi) Windschitl of Motley, Paul (Beth) Windschitl of Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Tom Windschitl of Fridley, Joan (Tim) Arango of Tennessee, Rita Miller of Baxter and Roger (Rebecca) Windschitl of Columbia, Maryland; siblings, Isidore Faerber, Sister Gretchen Faerber, George Faerber, Pauline “Polly” Hoeffner, Marcus Faerber and Florence Apple; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Arnold; children, Carol, Jim and Joseph; and siblings, Joseph, Stanley and Marie.
The family would like to extend their deepest appreciation for the friends and staff Mrs. Windschitl made at Riverside. Their compassion, sincerity and friendship meant so much to her and to her family.
