Elisabeth Hartmann, Loving Wife and Mother, Volunteered with the Saline Hospital Auxiliary
Elisabeth Hartmann, nee’ Wimmer, 87, of Saline, Michigan passed away unexpectedly on Friday, June 10, 2022. Elisabeth was born in Dogern, Germany to the late Karl and Ida Wimmer. She arrived in the United States with her immediate family in June 1953 and settled in Detroit prior to her moving to Saline in 1975. She married the love of her life, Werner Hartmann, on June 12, 1956. The two met approximately five years earlier at a festival in Dielheim, Germany.
Elisabeth was a wonderful and loving wife, mother, and Oma. While family was everything to her and always was the priority, she made sure to carve out time for her friends and interests. Elisabeth was a long-time volunteer with the former Saline Hospital Auxiliary and active member of St. Andrew Catholic Church in addition to always lending a helping hand where needed. She enjoyed being with her family and friends, especially her two grandsons. She met regularly with her "quilting group” whether to quilt or just get together.
Elisabeth is survived by her devoted husband, Werner; daughters Debbie (Tom) Wolfe of Troy and Patty (Todd) Barrett of Lupton; grandsons Max and Jack Wolfe; siblings Wilma (Bill) MacLeod and Rich (late Linda) Wimmer; brother-in-law Bernd Doetzkies; numerous nieces, nephews, great-nieces/nephews, and extended family. She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings Karl Wimmer and Gerda Doetzkies.
