Mary was born on May 6, 1916 at Bockum, Westfalen, Germany to Frank and Theresia (Tillman) Noelle. Her father, who had emigrated to the US from Germany and became a US citizen some two decades earlier, moved seven year-old Mary and her family to the US in 1923 aboard the SS. George Washington. The Noelle’s settled in rural Laurel, Nebraska where Frank had purchased a farm. Mary went to a country school through 8th grade, and “Catechism School” for two weeks in Wayne every summer. She went on to attend high school at St. Frances in Randolph, then to Wayne State College to earn a teaching certificate. Mary taught in several northern Cedar County schools, ending up in Fordyce, where she met Cletus Kleinschmit at a dance. Mary and Cletus were married on June 7, 1943 in Bow Valley.

Mary and Cletus farmed together and raised five children in rural Bow Valley. Mary was a Renaissance Woman, intellectually curious and ready to learn about a variety of subjects. She was an excellent gardener, seamstress, amateur historian, baker, homemade ice cream maker, card and spider solitaire player, among other talents. Mary stayed connected to her family and friends in Germany, keeping an active correspondence with them, and in 1996, traveled back to Germany with her daughter to visit.

Mary had a strong Catholic faith that she practiced daily. She was also very active in the church, participating in Christian Mothers (CCW), Catholic Daughters and Rosary Club, sewing blankets for the missions, baptismal garments for the parish, and burial garments for babies that were stillborn or miscarried. In her earlier days, Mary also transported Franciscan teaching Sisters to various destinations. She was part of the committee that researched and wrote a history of Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church to commemorate in 2001 the 125th anniversary of the parish. In later years, Mary wrote a comprehensive history of her family and life that she shared with her children and grandchildren: The best Christmas present she ever gave.

Mary is survived by 5 children and their spouses, William and Elizabeth Kleinschmit of Bow Valley, Edwin and Carolyn Kleinschmit of Crofton, Martin and Linda Kleinschmit of Bow Valley, Lois and Irvin Schock of Dakota City, and Roger and Debra Kleinschmit of Canton, SD; 23 grandchildren, 34 great-grandchildren, and a sister, Dorothy and Mike Gubbels of Columbus.
