Alberta L. Wolfe, 80, of 1764 Bucktail Rd., St. Marys, died Friday, April 19, 2013 at her home after a courageous battle with cancer.
She was born January 28, 1933, in Kersey, daughter of the late Bernard and Helen Thorwart Schneider. On September 15, 1951, in the St. Boniface Church, she married Alvin J. Wolfe, who survives.
Mrs Wolfe was a lifelong resident of the area and attended Kersey schools. She was a hardworking, loving, and supportive mother who placed family above all else. She loved spending time with her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, taking great pleasure in family dinners and holidays when everyone could gather at her home for one of her wonderful meals. The more family she had surrounding her, the happier she was. Her generous spirit extended to many special friends and family with whom she was extremely close.
