Sally Wehmeyer

August 28, 1947 — December 13, 2020

It was on August 28, 1947 that Raymond and Ruby Stoecker Tambke welcomed their second child into their home in Stover, Missouri and they named her Sally Ann.  She was baptized and confirmed at Christ Lutheran Church, where she remained a lifelong member.

Sally grew up in Stover and spent most of her childhood helping out on her parent’s farm.  She was the younger sister to Elaine and the older sister of BIlly.

She attended Stover High school, graduating in 1965.  It was during high school that she caught the eye of a fellow classmate, Willie Wehmeyer and before long they were dating and exchanging class rings as a token of their affection for each other.

On February 11, 1966, at the Christ Lutheran Church in Stover, Sally and Willie were united in marriage, swapping class rings for wedding rings.  For the next 54 years, Sally and Willie experienced the joys of having four children and the sorrow of losing their oldest daughter at a young age.

In the early years Sally worked at Hagedorn’s Sundries and Nolting’s’ Department Store, both in Stover.  A new job opportunity came with the opening of Gates Rubber Company in Versailles and for the next 30 plus years, Sally was a dedicated employee.

When Sally wasn’t at work you would find her outside tending to her yard, never losing her love of the outdoors.  She had a greenthumb and enjoyed working in her garden; which led to canning everything she grew.  She was a great cook and quite an accomplished baker, famous for her homemade pies.  She took up fishing in tournaments, which allowed her to spend time with Willie.  She enjoyed time at her son and daughter-in-law’s lake house and Christmas at the beach with her daughter and son and their families.

Sally looked forward to mornings on her porch watching the hummingbirds and chatting with her daughter. She was the spoiler of grandkids and spent many years taking care of her granddaughter Sierra when she became ill; being with her family was her greatest joy.

Sally is survived by her husband, Willie Wehmeyer of the home; three children and their spouses, Raymond Marshall and Cherie Wehmeyer of Stover; William Quentin and Denise of Stover and Shelly Martens of Tipton; a sister and brother-in-law, Elaine and Larry Gene Samuels of Columbia; seven grandchildren, Thatcher Wehmeyer and wife Lacy, Macoy Wehmeyer, Quaid Wehmeyer and wife Elizabeth, Bryanna Dekraai and husband Jimmy, Drake Wehmeyer, Trever Martens and Sierra Martens, three great grandchildren, Waylon and Henley Wehmeyer and Ryker Rex, along with nieces, nephews, other relatives and many friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, one daughter, Tammy Sue Wehmeyer and one brother, Billy Tambke.
