Wilhelmina Luttmer Teeples

1935 ~ 2023

Wilhelmina Luttmer Teeples was born on January 21, 1935, in Groningen, Holland, to Johan Herman Frederik Luttmer and Roelfje Stoffers Luttmer. She passed away February 28, 2023, in South Jordan, Utah.

Wilhelmina immigrated to America in 1950. She met Dale and they were married on March 20, 1954, and later sealed in the Logan Temple.

Wilhelmina worked at Dee’s Drive-In and later as a school lunch cook. Mom loved parties, her friends, and the Dutch dances. She loved to go to the Dutch dances all dressed up with matching shoes. Horst Fidel, Englebert Humperdinck and Dean Martin were some of her favorites. Her favorite interests were having coffee with friends, knitting, crocheting, playing cards, bingo and going to the casino with friends. Everyone always had a fun time when Mom was in the group.

Wilhelmina is survived by her children, June (Doug) Wogerman, Debbie Mehr, Heidi (Rod) Gavin, Wendy (Darryl) Fenn, and Nolan (Kathy) Teeples; 12 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren. Preceded in death by husband Dale Teeples and son-in-law Robert Mehr.

I’m on my way to Washington State to help Jade as their new baby girl coming on 3/5. Sue just called with the news…It saddens me to be missing her Funeral and seeing the family. Sue and Mitch will have to be there for me, but I will try to zoom. Aunt Wilhelmina, mom and their other sisters were always close. To bad us cousins are not as close …we miss the slower times when families got together to just visit. Thoughts of each of you will be in our hearts and our prayers will be that you will find peace through the resurrection of our Savior, Jesus Christ
XOXO - as mom would sign it!! Love you.

She looks so vibrant and beautiful, simply glowing. Without a doubt at her best! It was nice when she was feeling this good! Lately that wasn't how she felt. She didn't like it when she didn't feel good. She wasn't happy when everything wasn't just perfect!
I only got to see her when Rod and Heidi brought her to visit with my mom. I will really miss her. She would crack me up with all her complaining and whinning. I never believed she could be serious. It was fun to lister to her carry on about all the things she wasn't getting done. She could carry on and whine more than anyone I know, but I don't think anyone took her seriously.
Wow, it will really be different to have those days end. I will really miss her. I loved that woman!

Wilhelmina is a delightful, generous lady. I enjoyed the opportunity to minister to her for a short time. She is so talented!

We are so sorry to hear that Aunt Wilhelmina passed away. We wish we could have had a chance to visit with her one last time. She was a big part of our family, and we loved her very much. We will miss her Dutch ancient and her sweet laugh. Sending our love to the family.

My condolences go out to my Aunt's family as this is always a difficult time in our lives when loved ones move on to a graeter realm in Life.

My condolences to the family. So many memories come to mind when we talk about the Teeple family. “The purple people Teeple eaters” .our families have so many memories growing up with your family. Camping trips most always included the Teeples. The Christmas your mom and dad come over and had dinner with us will always be a treasured memory. Wilhelmina was always complaining and when she said “Dale” the way only she could, we always said poor Dale. But her complaining was actually her love. Our entire family loved your parents.
You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

June, Debbie, Wendy, Heidi and Nolan,
My condolences to your family at this difficult time. Your mom was such a help to Craig and Lynsey and I when she had to come to Shriner’s. We can never thank her enough.

I didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Wilhelmina very well, but she was always so kind to me. She always seemed so fun! I know she will be sorely missed!

We are sorry to hear of the passing of Aunt Wilhelmina. She was always so nice to me and my family. She always complimented me. We would run into her and Dale occasionally in St George when we would go down there to visit. When she found out we were moving to St George she was so excited and had so much good advice. She will be missed!!
With Love,
