    Theresa C. Hankemeier, 91, of Maquoketa, Iowa, passed away on Monday, December 4, 2017, at her home in Maquoketa.

    A celebration of Theresa's life will be held at 2:30 P.M., Saturday, December 9, 2017, at First Lutheran Church in Maquoketa. Visitation will be held prior to the service from 1 P.M. to 2:15 P.M. at the church. Burial will be at the Andrew, Iowa Cemetery.

    Theresa Clara Elsner was born on July 2, 1926 in Jackson County, Iowa, to August and Barbara (Jacklovitch) Elsner. She grew up in the Sugar Creek area and attended country school in Sugar Creek. She marred Albert Frederick Hankemeier on November 10, 1952 in Clinton, Iowa. To this union seven children were born: Allen, Jean, twins Dennis and Diane, Roger, Judy and Richard.

    Theresa had first worked at DuPont in Clinton, Iowa, prior to her marriage. She then became a homemaker and farmed with her husband near Andrew for many years. Upon retirement in 1989 they moved to Maquoketa.

    Theresa was a member of the First Lutheran Church in Maquoketa. She enjoyed spending time with her family and grandkids. She always looked forward to visits and phone calls from family and friends. She had a heart of gold and always wanted to help support the hungry children and others in need. She loved to sit in her chair and snuggle with her cats "Squeek" and "Smokey".

    Those left to honor her memory include her children, Jean (Jimmy) Mayfield of Toronto, IA, Dennis Hankemeier of Andrew, IA, Diane Haylock of Maquoketa, IA, Roger Hankemeier of Iowa City, IA, Judy Hankemeier of AZ, and Richard Hankemeier of MT; 12 grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren; and a sister-in-law, Katherine Elsner of Maquoketa, IA. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Albert on February 1, 2001, a son Allen, a grandchild Jessica Joy, a great-grandchild Collin, two brothers Vernon and Raymond, and two sisters Laura and Rosemary.

    In lieu of other expressions of sympathy, a Theresa C. Hankemeier memorial fund has been established.
