Dolores Wiesmann

Dolores Madge Wiesmann, age 86, of Nixa, Missouri, passed away Friday, November 11, 2022.  She was born October 2, 1936 in Montrose, Missouri, the daughter of James Harold and Beatrice I. (Vansant) McMenemy.


She grew up on the family farm in Coal, Missouri, and was a graduate of Clinton High School.  After graduation, Dolores moved to Kansas City and attended Business School. 


In her 20’s Dolores converted to the Catholic Faith.  On January 6, 1962 she and John William Wiesmann Sr. were married at Redemptorist Catholic Church in Kansas City.  Together they had three children.  She lived her faith until death, participating actively in each parish she joined.  Dolores worked for the University of Kansas Medical School for many years before retirement.


After she and John retired they moved to Arkansas, living on Table Rock Lake.  John preceded Dolores in death on October 21, 1996.  The following year Dolores returned to Leawood, Kansas.  In 2017 she suffered from a stroke and needed to be near family.  She had been a resident of Castlewood Assisted Living in Nixa since that time.


Dolores enjoyed her travels and working in her garden.  Her family will remember the wonderful meals and treats she made for them. She loved her family and especially enjoyed time spent with grandchildren and great-grandchildren.   


Survivors include:  Her son, John William Wiesmann Jr. of Ozark; her daughter, Kim Wiesmann of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; three grandchildren and their spouses Alicia and Brandon Freeman, Amber and Chris Medlin and Arin and Cody Rogers; and great-grandchildren Ashton, Makenzie, Chloe, Jayden, Teagan, Harper, Lucia and Evie.


Dolores was preceded in death by her husband John Wiesmann, a son Gerald “Jerry” Wiesmann, a daughter-in-law Melissa Wiesmann, a brother James Harold McMenemy Jr., and her parents.


Visitation will be from 9:00 – 10:00 AM on Saturday, November 19 in Adams Funeral Home, Ozark.  A funeral service will follow at 10:00 AM.  Burial will be 3:00 PM Saturday, November 19 in Englewood Cemetery, Clinton, Missouri.

Dolores was a very special human. She was firm in any resolve she had. She was kind and compassionate even to those she just met. In the short time, I knew her she would give me words of encouragement as mother. When I worked night shift and was exhausted coming home to two children under two, she told me "If I can get through 3 kids in 3 years, you can do it. Just push through and those kids will never know any struggles. Just love." I continue to use those words to get through tough days. I hope I am half the mother and human this woman was. I hope she has found some peace now. Especially since the Chiefs won.

To the Weismann family, my heart is with you. Your mother was one of the most wonderful people this planet had to offer. All my love and prayers to you in this time. She was proud of all of you. Trust me, She told me frequently.
