Obituary for Wallace Wayne Reyelts

Worthington, MN

      Wallace Wayne Reyelts, age 71, passed away on Wednesday, October 30, 2013, at the Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, SD.
      Wally was born on August 18, 1942, the son of Matilda Reyelts. He was raised on a farm where he helped his stepdad and uncle. Wally attended country school and also Little Rock High School. He worked at Campbell Soup for 39 years, and it was there where he met his wife, Norma. They were united in marriage on June 13, 1970, at St. Matthew Lutheran Church. They lived on a farm north of Worthington and then moved to Worthington in the Fall of 2003. Wally stayed living there until August of 2012, when he became a resident of Maple Lawn Nursing Home in Fulda, MN. Wally enjoyed waking up every day greeted by the fun caring staff at Maple Lawn that always made him feel at home. He started dialysis at Sanford Worthington Medical Center in the Fall of 2012. It was there in the Dialysis Department that he was also blessed with many new caring nurses that became an extension of his family.
      Anyone that knew Wally knew his love of watching old Western Movies and his loyalty to the Minnesota Vikings. Even if they weren’t playing well, he was one of the few that would sit and watch an entire game!
      Wally is survived by his sister-in-law, Nancy (Wayne) Reker of Worthington, MN; four nieces, Holly, Kimberly, Chelsey and Lacey; one nephew, Landyn and several cousins. He was preceded in death by his wife, Norma; father and mother-in-law, Fred and Mildred Henning and mother, Matilda.
      Private family burial will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2013, at the Worthington Memorial Gardens Cemetery with Pastor Joe Behnke officiating.
      Wally was a man of very few words, but truly had a Heart of Gold, he will be missed. Blessed be his Memory.

Visitation will be held on Friday, November 1, 2013, from 5:00 7:00 p.m., at the Benson Funeral Home in Worthington.
