Obituary for Milda Florence Rients

Milda Florence Ida Rients, age 88, was born on June 10, 1930, in Germantown, IA, the daughter of Henry and Edna (Klein) Pauling. She grew up with five brothers. Younger life was a challenge as you can imagine with all brothers. When attending Ewington School, she met Lloyd Rients. They began dating, going roller skating in Lakefield. She married Lloyd on June 19, 1949, at Rost Church in rural Lakefield, MN. Together they farmed in Jackson County. Milda worked in town at Campbell Soup and then at Sather’s Candy Company of Round Lake in the packaging department until her retirement in 1987. During their life together, they enjoyed dancing but especially square dancing. They also enjoyed camping, going to the Spencer Fair, and spending time at the cabin on Round Lake. She loved flower gardens, collecting angels, crafts of any kind including crocheting, knitting hats, afghans, and blankets for friends and family. Milda passed away on Thursday, December 6, 2018, at the Sanford Worthington Medical Center in Worthington, MN.
Milda is survived by three daughters, Sandra Miller of Sioux Falls, SD, Patricia (Wayne) Daggett of Round Lake, MN, and Lisa (Dale) Severance of Rushmore, MN; seven grandchildren, Linda Neeb, Denver (Tracy) Miller, Mic (Jen) Daggett, Tim (Sheila) Daggett, Crystal (Tim) Severance, Paul Severance, and Levi Severance; seven great grandchildren, Lincoln, Madison, Zach, Lucas, Carson, Jacob, Lauren, and one more on the way, and neighbors and longtime friends, Simon and Marilyn Koster. She was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd; parents, and three brothers, Alvin, Eldred, and Lyle.
Visitation will be held on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, from 9:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m., at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Worthington, MN. Funeral services will be held on Tuesday, December 11, 2018, at 11:00 a.m., at St. Matthew Lutheran Church in Worthington, MN, with Pastor Mark Schreiber officiating.
