Source:  The Omaha World Hearld Newspaper; December 2010, as posted on FINDAGRAVE

        Frederick H. Wackerhagen just said no to self-service gas pumps at his Fred's Friendly Service station, 2901 Leavenworth St.

        "It was always full service; it's still full service," daughter Sue Ann Goodman of Omaha said. "He always said he would never have self-service because his customers deserved to have the full service. They checked the oil, cleaned your windshield and checked the air pressure on your tires. There were mechanics on staff. He had lots of accounts with local businesses."

        Wackerhagen died of Alzheimer's disease Sunday at Josie Harper Hospice House. He was 77.

        Services will be 11 a.m. Wednesday at the Heafey-Heafey-Hoffmann Dworak-Cutler Chapel, 7805 West Center Road.

        Wackerhagen was born in Bellevue and attended Omaha's Technical High School, where he played football.

        Wackerhagen started his business in 1961. When he retired in 1999, sons Robert and Ronald, who had worked there for many years, took over the service station.

        "He was called ‘Friendly Fred' because he was very personable," his daughter said.

        He was active in Downtown Omaha Inc., organized cleanup campaigns in downtown for about 10 years and once ran for City Council.

        Keep Omaha Beautiful recognized Wackerhagen in 1999 for organizing the annual cleanups in downtown Omaha with volunteers from Downtown Omaha Inc. and Central High School. He would make the cleanups pleasant, encourage families to involve their children and provide volunteers with refreshments and rides on Ollie the Trolley.

        Wackerhagen was an active member of the Tangier Shrine Temple in Omaha and was elected potentate of the 5,000-member organization in 1986.

Wilson, Helen Theo Wilson, nee Maas

Source:  The Billings [Montana] Gazette - January 2, 2010

        Helen Theo (Maas) Wilson, 98, passed away peacefully of natural causes in Billings on Monday, Dec. 28, 2009.

        A graveside service will be held in Harlem at the Harlem Cemetery , at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 6. A memorial service will follow at the Harlem Senior Services Center.

        Helen Maas was born on Oct. 19, 1911, in Pretty Rock, N.D., to Henry and Julia (Fink) Maas. Helen was one of 17 children.

        When her family moved to Montana, Helen met Gerald Wilson in Harlem and they were wed in Blaine County on Dec. 7, 1935. Gerald built a family home in Harlem and they lived there for almost all of the next 61 years, interrupted only briefly by residence in Turner, Mont., and Tacoma, Wash.

        She is survived by her three children, Ronald of Dallas and Richard of Seattle, and daughter Ardys (Wilson) Murphy, six grandchildren and nine great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother, Oscar Maas, and three sisters, Vernette (Maas) Guinn, Frances (Maas) Land and Alice (Maas) Hawkes. Her husband, Gerald F. Wilson, preceded her in July of 2009, after 73 years of marriage.

        Helen had many talents, but the greatest was her sense of humor. She had a knack for bringing a smile to the face of anyone who crossed her path, regardless of circumstances, age or condition. Few were able to resist this challenge for long. Her friendships were beyond counting and her love of people was unlimited. Her home was filled with music, conversation, laughter, and always with love. She spent her life in service to others, whether family, friends or strangers in need. No task was too great or time-consuming, as long as it brought comfort, pleasure or hope to someone else. Age neither changed her attitude nor altered her boundless enthusiasm. Even to the end, she was still making friends and bringing joy to others. The world will be a poorer place without her.
