Obituary of Mary Marie Wilhelm

Mary Marie Wilhelm, 88 years of age, passed away at Dennet Road Nursing home in Oakland, Maryland where she met her Lord and Savior on December 16, 2020. Mary was born on January 12, 1932 to the late Paul and Wanda Urmos in Wadsworth, Ohio. Mary was a talented young lady whose interests were many. Writing poetry, ice skating, classical piano and watercolor painting were but a few of the interests she embraced while growing up with her brother Robert and sister Barbara. Mary met the love of her life in 1948, Theodore William Wilhelm, and they were married at Crellin, Maryland on December 6, 1948. Mary worked at many professions in her life most notably as a Nurse's Aide serving those in need. Mary's interests expanded as she raised her family of 5 children. She was an avid gardener spending countless hours nurturing flowers, vegetables and fruit trees. Not letting anything, grown by her, go to waste. She developed a love for canning fruits and vegetables as they ripened. Her love of flowers was only surpassed by her admiration for songbirds. Many a winter day Mary could be seen feeding the songbirds and singing their songs with them. She loved to cook dishes that she had perfected from her parent's recipes and her baked goods were always a favorite of family and friends. Later in life Mary and Theodore were foster parents to children in need. Mary is survived by her children and their spouses, Ronald and Laura Wilhelm of Ladson, South Carolina, Roger and Cathy Wilhelm of Barberton, Ohio, Thomas and Collene Wilhelm of Morgantown, WV, Tamara and John Hull of Terra Alta, WV and Melvonia Lynn Goines of Kingwood, WV. Mary is also survived by 12 grandchildren, Heather Clayton, Sandra Butterfield, Michelle Larrabee, Tina Turner, Shawn Wilhelm, Douglas Wilhelm, Aimee Dills, Johnny Hull, Danette Tasker, Jeffrey Hull, Frank Goines II, and Jessica Goines. In addition to her grandchildren, she has 32 great grandchildren and 5 great, great grandchildren. Mary was preceded in death by her husband Theodore and three grandsons, Thomas Wilhelm Jr and Nathaniel Goines, and Kevin Wilhelm; her brother Robert Paul Urmos and sister Barbara Kay Porter. The void left by Mary's passing will be felt by many, but they should rejoice as Mary is now in the arms of God Almighty. Mary will be interned at the Cranesville Cemetery beside her loving husband Theodore. There will be a private family viewing and service held at Arthur H. Wright Funeral Home, Terra Alta.
