Delight Olive Rheinschmidt

September 8, 1930 — March 16, 2023


Delight Rheinschmidt of Mosinee, WI died at the age of 92 from an aggressive cancer, on Thursday, March 16, while visiting her daughter in Altha, FL.


Delight was born on September 8, 1930, to the late Edgar and Mary Giese, in Osseo, MN.  She went to Mosinee High School and graduated in 1948 as class valedictorian. She then attended the University of Whitewater majoring in Education and playing on the tennis team. She married Donald in 1950 at St. Paul’s Catholic Church and started their family in their River Road home.


Delight was a lifetime member and past President of the VFW Auxiliary, belonged to St. Monica’s Circle and spent many years as a Campfire Girl leader.  She enjoyed going out to play BINGO, scratching off lottery tickets, an occasional trip to the casino and playing cards with anyone who sat across from her. During her winters in Florida with Sandy, she attended the Woman’s Club of Blountstown, Bizzie Beez Quilters and volunteered at the Pioneer Settlement where she could always be found churning butter on a front porch or giving tours of the old Shiloh School House. Delight always lived up to her name with a smile and laugh for everyone. There was always an extra place at the kitchen table for whoever stopped by.


She was preceded in death by her husband, Donald, in 2006 and her oldest son, Mike, in 2012.


She is survived by six children: Karen McKenna of Mosinee, Donna (Mark) Torok, Vienna, VA, Tom (Vicki) Rheinschmidt, Vero Beach, FL, Dan (Amie Miller) Rheinschmidt, Mosinee, Sandy (Bob) Voss, Altha, FL and Kathy (Bryan) Whitman, Mosinee. Additional survivors include her brothers, Hi-D (Gwen) Giese of Mosinee, Lee Giese of Clive, Iowa, sister, Ruann Gelb of Huntington Beach, CA, as well as many grand, great grand and great-great grandchildren.


Funeral Services will be held on Saturday, April 15 at 12:30 p.m. at Our Savior National Catholic Church, 804 Jackson St., Mosinee, WI with Father Marion officiating.   Dress is casual and tye-dye is preferred. The family will receive friends at her son Dan’s house for Delight’s “after life” party.  Beste Funeral Home, Mosinee, is assisting the family with arrangements.  Online condolences can be directed to the family at
