This would not be the same Minnie Waeltz. Minnie Alta Larmore married (Thank you for the correct spelling by the way--I've seen is spelled "Larmer", "Larmor", and "Larmore") my great-grandfather Fred Clarence Waeltz in 1902. They had 5 children: Henry N., Clarence Edward, Verdelia, Reba H., and Genevieve Fern. Minnie died March 4, 1918. She is buried in Beckemeyer Cemetary, Beckemeyer, Illinois. Her oldest son, Henry, is buried there also.
Fred then married Goldie Gladys Johnson on May 12, 1918.
They had 4 children. The first baby died as an infant. Their second child was Orville Truman Waeltz--my grandfather. They had 2 more sons, Marvin and Lavern.
Fred, Goldie, and baby Evelyn are also buried at Beckemeyer in the same plot.
I have lots more information and even some pictures if you're interested.

PS: The Minnie I'm looking for was alive when my Grandpa and Grandma were married. He referred to her as Aunt Minnie. She would have been his maternal aunt because she married Goldie's brother Raymond, but if her maiden name was Waeltz, then she may have also been Fred's younger sister. My grandma seems to remember Kate Waeltz (married name Parks) to be her sister. I don't know where either of them really fit in. The big problem I have is that the US Census for Lake in Clinton County (no record for 1890), and 1900 and 1910 are not transcribed. Since Fred was born in 1880, they both would have been born after that, and they were married by the 1920 census.
