Agnes Renneberg

August 25, 1918 — April 9, 2016

   Agnes C. Renneberg, age 97, a longtime Menahga resident, passed away peacefully Saturday, April 9, 2016 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Detroit Lakes, MN with family by her side.     Agnes was born on August 25, 1918 to Michael and Julia (Diederich) Flick in Ionia, Iowa.  She attended Catholic School and resided in Iowa through the Great Depression and World War II.  Agnes was married to Lambert Renneberg on June 19, 1946 in Ionia, Iowa after meeting through some mutual friends.  Lambert was a Canadian citizen and was a soldier in the Canadian Army during WW II and had fought in Europe.  He landed with the D-Day campaign on Juno Beach and then traveled along the Northern Front until ending in Emden, Germany for V-E Day in 1945.  Agnes stayed in constant contact with Lambert throughout the war.  There were countless love letters between the two from the war times of 1941-1945.  Lambert’s letter always began, “Hello Darling”.  Their marriage was blessed with three sons: Jeff, Greg and Wes.  Lambert and Agnes farmed in Iowa for ten years.  In 1957 they moved to Menahga, MN where they owned and operated Twin Lakes Lodge for a number of years.  Agnes had not been fond of the idea of moving to Minnesota (nice way to say it) but once there she fell in love with the people and the area and never wanted to leave.  after the resort, they moved just outside of Menahga.  Agnes worked at the Menahga Co-op as a bookkeeper for many years before retiring in 1983.  She then helped with the bookkeeping for the family business, Renneberg Hardwoods until 2001, she was 93.  Agnes was very dedicated to her faith and her church, Assumption of Our Lady Catholic Church in Menahga, MN.  Agnes very much enjoyed their later home in Menahga when they lived next to the church.  She enjoyed walking to the church every day and saying her daily Rosary.    Agnes is survived by two sons: Greg (Joyce) of Reedsburg, WI and Wes (Lana) of Menahga, MN; eight grandchildren: Nicole, Erik, Teri, Keith, Jennifer, Megan, Preston and Jada; eleven great-grandchildren as well as numerous nieces, nephews and other relatives.    She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Lambert; one son, Jeff and all six of her brothers: John, Leo, Norbert, Ralph, Louis and Lawrence.    Mass of Christian Burial will be held 11:.00 AM Saturday, April 16, 2016 at Assumption of Our Lady Catholic Church in Menahga, MN.  Visitation will begin at 10:00 AM with a Rosary Service at 10:30 AM.  Interment will be made at the church cemetery and a lunch will be served for all who attend.
