Mary G. Wehrman, devoted mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend, passed away peacefully at Villa Springs Health Care Center on September 28, 2022, with her loving family by her side. She was born on October 26, 1937, in Maysville, KY to the late Ambrose and Emma (Hermann) Germann. Mary is survived by her children Barry (Amy) Wehrman, Phil (Maria) Wehrman, Monica (Vince) Lonnemann, and Eric (Nicole) Wehrman, grandchildren Bari Lynne, Chet, Sam, Emma, Sarah, Nick, Luke, Tyler, Josh and Jack, and great grandchildren Beau and Louie. She is also survived by three sisters: Jean Hengelbrok of Ft. Thomas, KY, Arlene (Ron) Riedel of Saginaw, MI, and Sharon (Owen) Serey of Villa Hills, KY, and three brothers: Bill (Marilynn) Germann of Edgewood, KY, Hank (Mary Jo) Germann of Edgewood, KY, and Jeff (Michelle) Germann of Erlanger, KY.
Mary always had a zest for the holidays, decorating both inside and outside her home to reflect the season, and delighted in cooking and entertaining for her family to share those special moments. Thanksgiving and Christmas were her favorites. She also loved her cards, often playing in numerous competitive bridge leagues in and around Northern KY throughout the season. If you needed a bridge partner, Mary was always there to step in! She also loyally followed the Reds and Bengals, tuning into their games every chance she got. If you were ever to pay a visit to Mary, chances are you would find a crossword puzzle or cross-stitch work in progress, as she loved to bring puzzle pictures to life and make things for her children and friends. And boy was Mary a voracious reader of books! You name it - mystery novels, romance novels, non-fiction – she had stacks of them, ready to share with family and friends. Mary was also a great cook, as evidenced by the numerous cookbooks surrounding her kitchen and smiles on her children’s faces when they came over for Sunday dinner. But most importantly, Mary was a person who loved and practiced her Catholic faith with passion and vigor, and was a key force behind passing that faith onto her children and grandchildren. Her family wishes to thank the physicians, nurses and health care givers at both St. Elizabeth Hospital and Villaspring, who were so caring and supportive during her brief illness. Visitation will be from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM at St, Pius X Church, Edgewood, KY, followed by funeral Mass there at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, October 4,2022.
