Carol Ann Wadewitz

May 5, 1939 — March 29, 2023

Winona

 

Carol Ann Wadewitz, 83 of Winona, died Wednesday, March 29, 2023 at Benedictine – St. Anne.

Carol was born May 5, 1939 in Winona to Irvin and Mildred (Swenson) Wager.  She graduated from Winona Senior High School in 1957 and went on to obtain her LPN degree, graduating in 1959.  On November 14, 1959, she married Paul Wadewitz.  She worked her entire career at Winona Health, mainly in the OB department, which she loved.  She was a longtime member of Central Lutheran Church.

Carol enjoyed tending to her gardens and canning and freezing everything she could, especially hundreds of quarts of pickles every year.  She also enjoyed cats, reading and was very crafty; especially with needle point, knitting and quilting.  Her family was of the utmost importance to her; she loved spending time with them and would do anything for them.

She is survived by her three children, Jeff (Kimberly), Scott and Beth; two granddaughters, Jennifer Wadewitz and Stephanie Wadewitz (Nick Long); step-granddaughters, Daniela and Katarina Gatica; two great-grandsons, Maximus and Theodore Long; and four sisters, Bernice Sutton, Mae (Wendell) Multhaup, Elaine (Raymond) Pflughoeft and Peggy Hanson.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul in 2006; parents and brother, Ervin Wager; brothers-in-law, Charles Sutton and Richard Hanson; and sister-in-law Roberta Wager.

Memorial Service will be 12 p.m., Saturday, April 15, 2023 at Central Lutheran Church with the Reverend Michael Short officiating.  Visitation will be 10 a.m., until the time of the service.  She will be laid to rest at Woodlawn Cemetery at a later date.  In lieu of flowers, memorials are preferred.
