Linda (Mom) Wrana
Linda (Mom) Wrana, age 66, of 4111 Lodge Road S.W., Sherrodsville, O., died Tuesday morning, March 1, 2011 in her residence after a courageous four-year battle with cancer.
She was born April 8, 1944 in Dennison, O. and was the daughter of the late George and Geraldine Watkins Schurtz. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister Shirley Peoples.
She grew up in the Dennison area and was a graduate of the former Dennison High School. Lynn appreciated gardening and working outside of her home. She was always proud of her flowers. She found the greatest joy in being around her Atwood lake area home with her family. She was particularly fond of taking spontaneous car trips with her husband Jack and her family. Lynn also liked to travel occasionally. She was a former employee of Lauren Manufacturing and had sold real estate for ReMax, Coldwell Banker, and Pissocra Mathias Realty firms. Lynn and her husband had also formerly owned and operated The Dellroy Pizza Shop for several years and the former L & J Ceramics at her home where she enjoyed teaching ceramics classes. She will be remembered by her family as a loving wife, mother, and grandmother.
She is survived by her husband Jack Wrana, whom she married December 27, 1964; two daughters, Jaci Wrana and her partner Merridy Halfacre of Irmo, SC, and Mrs. Chris (Kimber Lee) Bray of Sherrodsville; three granddaughters, Helene Bray of Sherrodsville and Taylor and Kaitlyn Halfacre, both of Irmo, SC; a sister, Sandy Galbreath of Uhrichsville, O., numerous nieces and nephews, and a host of loving friends.
In accordance with Lynn’s wishes, she will be cremated and a memorial service will be held at a later date. There will be no calling hours observed. The Baxter-Gardner Funeral Home at Sherrodsville is handling arrangements. The family suggests memorial contributions may be made to Community Hospice of Carroll County, 1040 Trump Road N.W., Suite B, Carrollton, O. 44615.
