Carol Yvette Wenger

Carol Yvette Wenger, born Nov. 14, 1960 to Boyd and Judith (Eck) Sigafoose in Atmore, began her eternity with Jesus on the morning of Jan. 28, 2021.

Carol was many things to many people, but is most remembered by her calm loving disposition, and the faithful following of her Lord.

Carol grew up in Bratt, Fla., on the Sigafoose Dairy Farm. She was a sister to Emily (Sigafoose) Peaster, Boyd Sigafoose Jr., Joseph Sigafoose, Miranda (Sigafoose) Parker, James Sigafoose, Alana Sigafoose, Haven Shores and Carter Sigafoose.

She attended Bratt Elementary, and Escambia Academy. At a young age, she gave her heart to the Lord and was baptized into the Church of God in Christ Mennonite in the Walnut Hill, Fla. congregation.

She married Dale Wenger on Dec. 31, 1978. Dale and Carol started their wonderful adventure with three beautiful girls, Beth (Chuck Chick), Laura (Darryl Ensz) and Annie (Kevin Klassen).  Carol was also, in part, a mother to Kevin Tucker, Marnin Gehman, Ray Flowers and Trevor Jantz.

Carol and Dale began a legacy of Christian teaching that their daughters have passed to their children. It brought great joy when Carol and Dale were privileged to spend loving time with their grandchildren, Tiana Chick, Evan Chick, Ike Ensz, Paxton Ensz, Madison Klassen, Chloe Klassen and Gabriella Klassen who knew her as Grammy.

Carol’s love has touched many extended family, loved ones, friends, and casual acquaintances.  She was a stranger to none and loved by many, and her impression on this world will not soon fade.

After many years farming in the Walnut Hill area, in March of 2010, Dale and Carol moved to Nashville, Tenn., where they worked for a medical company, and in December 2016 they moved to Lobelville, Tenn., where they began a new adventure.

Carol told us of her love for their “shouse” on a small piece of property in the hills of Tennessee. Dale and Carol shared their happiness with their family through wonderful stories of this “place” they had carved out.  They shared stories of the love they had for their Church in Lobelville, and the wonderful folks that made up their local Church Family.  Carol’s wishes were to be laid to rest in Lobelville, as this was their home.

Carol is mourned by her husband, Dale Wenger; her mother, Judith Sigafoose; four sisters, Emily, Miranda, Alana and Haven; three brothers, Boyd Jr., James and Carter; three daughters, Beth, Laura and Annie; seven grandchildren; and many extended family and friends.

Carol is preceded death by her father, Boyd Sigafoose; and her brother, Joe Sigafoose.   

Visitation was held on Jan. 31, 2021, from 5-6 p.m. at the Walnut Hill Mennonite Church in Walnut Hill.

Funeral services were held on Feb. 2, 2021, at the Pleasant View Mennonite Church in Lobelville. Interment followed in Pleasant View Mennonite Church Cemetery.
