Corrine E. Wolfgang, 87, Millersburg

MILLERSBURG — Corrine E. Wolfgang passed peacefully from this world into eternal glory with her Lord Jesus Christ on Wednesday, Jan. 30, 2013, at the Manor at the Susquehanna Village in Millersburg.

She was born in Fearnot on Feb. 17, 1925, to Earl and Hulda (Dieter) Mayer Sr. After her mother passed away, Corrine came to live with Jay and Ida Phillips, of Klingerstown, who lovingly raised Corrine alongside their son Lee who she truly loved as a brother. In 1942, Corrine married the true love of her life, George R. Wolfgang, of Rough and Ready. George passed into eternal glory on Oct. 17, 1988.

She excelled in school and graduated from the former Hegins High School.

Corrine was a lifelong member of St. Michael’s Lutheran Church of Klingerstown where for many years she taught Sunday school. Corrine was an avid reader who always enjoyed learning about new subjects. She also took great joy from her garden, birdwatching and simply spending time with her family.

Corrine and George spent most of their married life farming near Hebe. They raised a family of five children, Dale George Wolfgang, of Millersburg married to Leda, Mary Henrie, of Danville married to Charles, James Wolfgang, of Klingerstown married to Margie, Eric Wolfgang, of Mountaintop married to Catherine, and Jill Wolfgang, of Dunedin, New Zealand married to Malcolm MacDonald. Corrine will be dearly missed by her seven grandchildren, Michele (Wolfgang) Hutchins, of Millersburg, Jason Wolfgang, of Pitman, Jonathan Wolfgang, of Export, Kim (Henrie) Shimp, of Danville, Carl Henrie, of Danville, and Abby and William Wolfgang, of Mountaintop. Six great-grandchildren will also miss Corrine who brought them many smiles and hugs.

She is also survived by a brother, Russell Schade, of Valley View; a sister, Gloria Stoudt, of Allentown, and two half-sisters, Violet Harris, of Dornsife and Joyce Wolfe, of Berrysburg.

Corrine was preceded in death by a sister, Sylvia Stutzman,; a brother, Earl Mayer Jr.; a half-brother, Robert Mayer, and a step-sister Mary Stehr.

A viewing will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. Monday at St. Michael’s Lutheran Church in Klingerstown, followed by the funeral service at 11.

Burial will be in St. Michael’s Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting that donations be made to St. Michael’s Church, P.O. Box 71, Klingerstown, PA 17941.

Stephen R. Rothermel Funeral Home, Klingerstown is handling the arrangements.
