Obituary

 Carol Dee (Knapp) Wuerthner, 86, of LaFontaine, passed away on September 28, 2022, in Longmont, Colorado. She was born on November 6, 1935, to D. William and Magdaline Knapp in Indianapolis, Indiana. 

As a child, Carol always knew she wanted to be an educator. She graduated from Emmerich Manual High School in 1953 and Ball State University in 1957; where she met the love of her life (a red headed farmer). She married Rex Wuerthner on November 22, 1962, and began their lives together in Marion, Indiana. He passed away on June 4, 2012. After having her first child she knew that motherhood was the most important thing and put her career on the back burner. Along with being a member of Psi Iota Xi, she attended Sunnycrest United Methodist Church and established many wonderful relationships within the church and community and used her leadership skills in a myriad of ways throughout the years. 

 She was a wonderful mother who was always there when we needed her. She had many friends and was a well-loved member of the community in Marion, Indiana.  

Carol is survived by her daughters; Corinne Renee Delatorre of Longmont, Colorado, Rachelle Carlyn Angerman of Crown Point, Indiana, and Chandra Leigh Bentley Bargersville, Indiana; Her beloved grandchildren Evan Alan Angerman, Jorge Delatorre, and Graham & Finley Bentley. She is proceeded in death by her parents William and Magdaline Knapp and her husband Rex Wuerthner.
