Delores "Tootie" Harms Obituary

Delores A. “Tootie” Harms, age 93, of Reedsburg, WI, passed away on Sunday, November 12, 2023 at the Reedsburg Area Senior Life Center. She was born on January 15, 1930 in Loganville, WI, the daughter of Lorenz and Ruth (Bergman) Luetkens. On June 9, 1950, Delores was united in marriage to Wilbert W. “Bill” Harms at St. John Ev. Lutheran Church in Loganville. This marriage was blessed with two daughters.

Tootie was a member of St. John Ev. Lutheran Church in Loganville and active in many church activities that included LWML, Ladies Aide, and the church ice cream social committee. She enjoyed going to the LWML conferences at Green Lake, WI with her sisters and friends from church. She always maintained a vegetable garden for canning large quantities of produce on the farm. She enjoyed fishing and traveling after retiring from the farm including two trips to Germany. Tootie was a sports enthusiast, particularly following the Cubs and the Brewers. This love of baseball came from her years as a “lefty” pitcher for her local softball team.
