Born on June 28, 1931 at Carroll, Iowa, Dolores was the daughter of Lawrence and Mary (Kanne) Wieland. She grew up in the Carroll area, and graduated from St. Angela’s Academy. On October 5, 1950, Dolores was united in marriage to LaVern “Bud” Pudenz at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Carroll. The couple made their home near Manson, Iowa for a brief time before returning to Carroll County where Dolores was a devoted homemaker, and assisted Bud in the family’s grain and livestock farming operation. After their retirement from farming in 1975, the couple purchased a resort in Bemidji, Minnesota. Dolores and Bud operated the resort until Bud’s passing in 1999, when Dolores returned to Carroll. Dolores enjoyed Elvis Presley, gardening, watching westerns, her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She also enjoyed quilting, as she made a quilt for each grandchild, and great-grandchild. Dolores was a member of Holy Spirit Parish in Carroll. Left to celebrate Dolores life are her children: Jean (Keith) Walker of Paton, Mark (Patty) Pudenz of Odessa, MO, Rick (Helen) Pudenz of Glidden, Gary Pudenz of Lytton, Mary Jo (Bill) Rice of Ft.
