I’m so sorry to hear of your loss. It must have been meant to be for me to see this obituary, as I don’t often look.
In a long ago way, I am related to you. My Grandmother’s name was Julia Wolf Zwickel. She is John Wolf’s sister. My Dad, Clifford John Zwickel was a First cousin of John, Verna’s husband.
I grew up calling them Aunt and Uncle, along with Uncle Earl and Aunt J?.
Basically, Wendy and Jack and I are second cousins. I’m 76, so I’m older than you and remember you as little kids !
Somewhere along the line, our families moved apart.
I’m so sorry that you’ve now lost your Matriarch. Like you, I have so many happy memories of her. Keep your memories close to your heart.
