She was preceded in death by her loving parents, Rudy and Flo Wentzel; her sister, Patty Woodings; and many other beloved friends and family.
Surviving are her loving husband of 45 years, Jim; her adoring children, grandchildren, precious nieces, nephews, cousins and more.
She valiantly fought a year long battle with brain cancer and leaves a legacy of grace and strength to all who knew her.
A memorial service celebrating her life will be held at 11 A.M., Saturday, January 19, 2013 at Ridgewood Baptist Church in Wadsworth, with lunch immediately following.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in her name to that same house of worship.
