Leda K. Wolfgang
Leda Kaye Wolfgang, 80, of Millersburg, found eternal peace and rest in the arms of her Lord Jesus Christ on June 9, 2022, at UPMC Harrisburg Hospital, surrounded by her loving family.
She was born on May 23, 1942 in Klingerstown, the daughter of the late Farus and Macie (Engle) Erdman.
On July 6, 1963, she married the love of her life, Dale George Wolfgang, with whom she has proudly built a home and a family over the past 58 years.
Her Christian faith and her church family were central to Leda’s life. She grew up as a member of the Salem United Church of Christ in Rough and Ready. Leda’s generous spirit was evident in the many hours she volunteered serving others with the United Church of Christ of David and First Methodist Church in Millersburg. Her beautiful voice lifted up to the Lord as a member of the choir in every church she attended. Leda found great joy and comfort in the words of her favorite hymns and prayed unceasingly for others.
Over the years Leda has enjoyed cooking, gardening and caring for her family and friends. She was known to many for her gentle and kind heart which led her to tirelessly care for anyone in need.
She has found many valuable friends through her involvement with the Millersburg Senior Center and the Northern Dauphin YMCA and as a loyal visitor to the residents of Manor Nursing Home. For several years, she volunteered with her local Meals on Wheels program, where she delivered both meals and encouragement.
Leda leaves behind her loving husband, Dale George Wolfgang, and daughter Michele Lee (Wolfgang) Hutchins, son-in-law Michael J. Hutchins, and two grandsons in whom Leda found her greatest joy, James Michael and Daniel George Hutchins. The whole family resides in Millersburg.
Leda loved being part of a big family and cherished her childhood years on the family farm. She was happiest when her family got together. She will be sadly missed by the six sisters and one brother who survive her; Violet Kahler, Leona Musick, Vena Hoch, Ruby Reitz, Bernice Koppenhaver, Elaine Dietrich and Darwin Erdman, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Waiting for Leda on the glorious shores of paradise were her grandson, Joshua Dale Hutchins, brothers Clair Sr., Emory and Willard Erdman; and her sisters Elsie, Eva and Diane Erdman.
The family invites all who knew and loved Leda to services at Salem United Church of Christ, 11 Church Road, Klingerstown on Friday, June 17, 2022. Visitation will be held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. Services will begin at 11 a.m. with the Rev. Mark E. Mantz officiating. Burial will be in the church cemetery after services.
Arrangements are handled by the staff of Minnich Funeral. The former Stephen R. Rothermel Funeral Home, Klingerstown, is now part of our family of funeral homes, and we are honored to serve that family at our Hoover-Boyer Funeral Home, Ltd., in Elizabethville.
