    Please accept our deepest condolences. My family lives in Wheaton,MN. We have been trying to learn about our extended family for years. With the death of my great-great aunt, Gladys (Wohlenhaus)Cordes, information about our family lineage died also.

    There are not many Wohlenhauses in this world. Please feel a little contentment in your hearts knowing that, even though we have never met, we are grieving with you.
