Our beloved Cornie, husband, dad, son, brother and uncle died suddenly in a work-related accident May 1, 2019 at the age of 46.

He was born September 10, 1972 to Cornie and Rachel Wollman. Cornie was baptized in 1995 at the age of 22. On July 5, 1998, Cornie was united in marriage to Rebecca Wollman. He will be remembered by family and friends and all who knew him, as living this vow each day of his life, by dedicating his life to God, his community, his family and showing his LOVE, by actions and words that supported them.

Left to cherish his memory are his loving wife, Rebecca and their children, Caleb (17), Janelle (14), Vanessa (13), Kaylea (10) and Tyler (3). Also mourning his death are his parents, Cornie and Rachel of Grassland Colony and seven siblings, LeeRoy (Thelma) Wollman, Alvin (Sharon) Wollman, Randy (Mary) Wollman, all of Grassland, Wayne (Elaine) Wollman of Sioux Falls, Nelda (Dennis) Wipf of Pease Creek Colony, Rosanna Wollman of Grassland and Jeremy (Ann) Wollman of Boulder Colony; his in-laws, Paul and Dorothy Wollman of Huron Colony and numerous sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews and a host of friends.

Cornie was preceded in death by his son, Christian (10-19-2010), brother, Jerome Wollman and his grandparents.

We feel you left so many things undone. There are still so many things we wanted to do with you. We still need your smile, your special understanding, your helping hand and your energy. A thousand moments were taken for granted because we thought there would be a thousand more…

Words can never say how much we will miss you, but we know God has a different plan for you. But someday we’ll meet again!

The family wishes to express sincere thanks for the love and support shown by relatives and friends to us during this difficult time.
