Elizabeth Jane Wagner

June 9, 1948 — December 15, 2022

Gresham

 

Elizabeth was born in Portland Oregon June 9, 1948 to Glenn

and Gladys Mentzel. She joined one sister, Louanne Marie.

Betty (as her family called her) and Louanne were 11 days shy

of being “Irish Twins”.

 

Elizabeth was raised in a devout Catholic home. She attended

grade school at Ascension Catholic School and St Mary’s

Academy for high school. Elizabeth married right after

graduating from high school. She had 2 children,

Mary Elizabeth and Michael Glenn. Unfortunately that marriage

did not last. In 1978 Elizabeth married Steve Wagner who

she was married to almost 45 years until her passing.  Steve and

Elizabeth were blessed with 4 children, Joseph Edward, Paul

Steven, Benjamin James and Anne Terese. They are the proud

Grandparents of 16 and great grandparents of 5.

 

 Elizabeth worked several jobs during her life but did not wish to

be remembered for that. In retirement she loved to read daily

from the Bible and numerous novels (her and Steve’s favorite was

Jan Karons, “Father Tim” series), gardening, caring for her rose bushes

(bringing flowers in daily during bloom time) and feeding the local bird

population, especially the Humming Birds. Elizabeth’s greatest joy

however was her family, loving them all so much. Being a wife, mother

and grandmother was her greatest priority along with sharing with

them about salvation through Jesus Christ. She loved family

gatherings and planned for them often. “Whatever will we do

without you to plan family events?” A sentiment shared by us all.

 Dearest Elizabeth you will be missed forever and will remain in all our

hearts for eternity. We love you Wife, Mother and Nana/Grandma!
