Betty May (Nafzger) Wenger

May 25, 1929 ~ October 20, 2020 (age 91)


Brodhead – Betty May Wenger, age 91, passed peacefully into the presence of her Saviour on October 20, 2020.

Betty was born in Monroe, WI on May 25, 1929, the daughter of Ernest and Lillian (Kundert) Nafzger.  She married LaVern Wenger on  May 1, 1948 at her family home in Juda.  LaVern preceded her in death on June 2, 1991.

Betty farmed with her husband for many years together at their family farm in Spring Grove Township and also worked for over 30 years as a data key punch operator at Swiss Colony.  Betty was affiliated with the Brodhead Gospel Hall and was born again in November of 1956; after considering truth found in the Bible about her need of forgiveness of her sin, she rested upon the words of John 3:18, 36: “He that believeth on Him is not condemned; he that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life.” Betty said, “I believe God!”  Betty enjoyed traveling and went to Switzerland four  times, but Betty was most fond of her flower gardens she grew at the family farm. 

Betty is survived by her four children, Patricia Wenger of Brodhead, Jacqueline (John) Schmaedick of Darlington, Michael (Lois) Wenger and Mark (Kelly) Wenger, both of Brodhead; 14 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren; a sister-in-law, Emma Wenger of Argyle and many other relatives and friends.

Betty was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, LaVern in 1991; 4 siblings, Herbert Donald Nafzger, Fred Nafzger, Gladys Nafzger and Joyce Sutfin and her step mother, Mildred Nafzger.

A visitation will be held at the DL Newcomer Funeral home, 1105 E. 9th Avenue in Brodhead on Friday, October 23, 2020 from 5:00 to 7:00 PM.  Funeral services will be held at the grave on Saturday, October 24, 2020 at 2:00 PM at the Greenwood Cemetery in Monroe.
