My Story

 Pauline Catherine Daihl Wenger was our loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.  She was 77 years old when she was given a new life in heaven.  She and Roy were married for 60 years.  They raised five beautiful children: Sharon, Wilma, Lisa, Kim, and Keith.  She was grandmother to 7:   Marnie, Renee, Mike, Shawn, Julie, Beth, and Paul.  She was a young great-grandmother to 11:   Ashlyn, Dustin, Mason, McKenna, Emilyn, Blake, Jaedon, Dillon, Sydney, Josiah, and Seth.  She loved to hold the babies and spend time making her family feel special.

She was born November 17, 1930, to the late Paul and Mary Daihl in Roxbury, PA.

We enjoyed many family gatherings at the Wenger home.  She was a great cook, and it wasn't a holiday without her macaroni salad, which can only be made with her homemade pickles.  She enjoyed collecting antiques, going to auctions, and visiting yard sales.  She liked Conway Twitty, the Gaither singers, Trace Adkins, and Johny Cash.  She was very generous with gifts and her time.  She loved her gardens and fixing up her house.  She made the best strawberry pie (with cream cheese), fruit salad, and grape juice. 

She like watching NASCAR, and her favorite driver was #99, Carl Edwards.

The days should be remembered and celebrated. They should be remembered by every family for all time to come. Their children after them should always remember those days.           ~esther 9:28

A Song by Chris Rice: Untitled Hymn
Weak and wounded sinner
Lost and left to die
O, raise your head, for love is passing by
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus
Come to Jesus and live!

Now your burden's lifted
And carried far away
And precious blood has washed away the stain, so
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus
Sing to Jesus and live!

And like a newborn baby
Don't be afraid to crawl
And remember when you walk
Sometimes we
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus and live!

Sometimes the way is lonely
And steep and filled with pain
So if your sky is dark and pours the rain, then
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus and live!

O, and when the love spills over
And music fills the night
And when you can't contain your joy inside, then
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus and live!

And with your final heartbeat
Kiss the world goodbye
Then go in peace, and laugh on Glory's side, and
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus and live!
