Geraldine A. Hengel

 

Our beloved Mother, Geraldine Ann Hengel, 89, of Winona, MN, died peacefully at her home on Monday, August 28, 2023. She was born on June 19, 1934, in Winona, MN, to Constance and Ramona (Williams) Cieminski. Geraldine married Ralph Hengel and together they raised five children.

Geraldine is survived by her children, Gayle Cieminski, Boston, MA; Larry “Joe” Hengel (Sheila) Columbia, SC; Kathy Rumpca (Doug) Winona, MN; Paul Hengel, Winona, MN; and Karen Roupas (Ted) Richmond, VA; siblings: Rosemary (Inky) Todd; Judy Lewis; Nancy Vikre; Nikki Worner; and Micheal Mangen; grandchildren: Bruce, Micheal and Gabe DeMelo; Shawn Harvey; Abby Rumpca; Kendra Dodge (Clif); Braxton Hengel; Kristine Koeppel (Patrick) and Katie Fernandez (Patrick); 11 great-grandchildren; and many special nieces and nephews.

Geraldine enjoyed knitting and cross-stitching but she most treasured her time with her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and many loyal friends who were like family.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Ralph; sisters: Connie Buswell and Lois Schwab; and brothers: Patrick and Richard Cieminski.

Our family would like to extend our sincere thanks and gratitude to the Winona Hospice staff for all the care and compassion you rendered to our Mother during her time at home on hospice care.
