Wilma Ione Neumann was born March 28, 1930, on a farm north of Berne, Iowa, the daughter of Ernest and Leona (Knutson) Klaus. She was baptized in April, 1930, at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Ute where she was later confirmed into the Lutheran faith. She attended country school near Ute and graduated from Ute High School with the class of six students in 1948. After completing Normal Training, Wilma began her career in teaching, first at a country school for five years. On June 14, 1953, Wilma was united in marriage to Herbert Neumann at St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Ute. Along with raising their three children, Wilma continued to enjoy her teaching career at the Charter Oak-Ute Community School District in elementary education retiring in May of 1992. After retirement it was obvious that Wilma loved children especially her grandkids. In recent years at Emeritus, she enjoyed seeing the children that visited, her face lighting up just at the sight of their presence. Her beloved husband, Herb, passed away September 4, 2007. As a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Wilma served actively on the Ladies Aid. She was also involved in the American Legion Auxiliary Aaby Unit #442 of Ute, holding post and county offices. She was a charter member of the 900 Club, a group of numerous farm neighbors. Survivors include one son, Tim Neumann of Schleswig, Iowa; two daughters and their husbands, Sara and George Broome of Wenatchee, Washington and Jane and Joe Coon of Clive, Iowa; six grandchildren, Melinda Fisa and her husband, Michael, Paul Neumann, Adam Meyer, and Ian, Nathan, and Rachel Coon; two great grandchildren, Levi and Austin Fisa; two brothers, Milford Klaus and his wife, Jeri, of Omaha, Nebraska and Orvan Klaus of Tucson, Arizona; three sisters, Doris Thompson of Omaha, Nebraska, LaRue Tanner and her husband, Glenn, of Colorado Springs, Colorado, and LaDonna King and her husband, Vernon, of Adair, Iowa; along with several nieces and nephews; cherished students and dear friends.
