Gran Villas Atchison Resident Spotlight:

Mary Wessel was born to Paul and Helen Grollmes on January 5th 1933 in Seneca Kansas. Mary lived in Seneca until the 4th grade when she and her family moved to Valley Falls. She recalls growing up on the farm with her two brothers and three sisters and many happy memories. Mary attended Valley Falls High School and graduated in 1950. After graduation she worked in Valley Falls as a dental assistant. While still working at the dental office Mary let her friends Jim and Betty set her up on a blind date! "I'd say the date went really well because I didn't get home until the next morning at 7:30 and had to be to work the that day!" That blind date she had was with Joe Wessel! He asked Mary to marry him and in February on the 11th of 1956 they were wed! "I remember Joe saying that if I didn't marry him he was going to re-enlist but I knew I wanted to marry him way before he asked!" Joe and Mary settled in Effingham, Kansas and raised their 3 girls and 2 boys. " We have a big beautiful family like we always wanted!" When asked what makes Mary happy she replied "My family, they are my strength."
