|On May 5, 1902 in Burton, TX, Maybelle Emily Dallmeyer began her earthly life which would not be completed until April 5, 1988. Her joy for life and devotion to Christ were hallmarks of her disciplines. While attending Blinn College in Brenham, Texas she met her future mate, Reverend U. R. Wendt, and was married to him on January 1, 1922. Sixty-six years of love in their mutual union brought them three children, nine grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren.
Her vocation was referred to often as “just a minister’s wife,” and what a noteworthy calling was this! “Just a Minister’s Wife” who helped her husband in the pastoring of churches, first in Missouri, and then in Louisiana, pastoring United Methodist Churches in Jennings, Columbia, Logansport, Bossier City First Church, New Iberia, Springhill, and Wynn Memorial from which he retired in 1964 to make their home in Shreveport.
Her devotion to God is reflected in her loyalty to her Church first, where she was a member of the United Methodist Women, the Win One Sunday School Class, and all other phases of church work; then in her community and service projects where she was a loyal member of the Order of Eastern Star.
Possessing extraordinary gifts of spiritual growth, she will be loved and remembered by her family and friends through her sparkling smile and sweet disposition that made everyone’s day a little brighter.
