Lynn E. Wittenberg, 87
Aug. 3, 1927 -- Jan. 4, 2015
Lynn (Evelynn) Wittenberg, 87, passed away peacefully in her home in Plano, Texas, on Jan. 4, 2015. Born on Aug. 3, 1927, Lynn graduated from Cedarburg High School in Wisconsin, and on May 4, 1946, married John F.
Wittenberg III in Cedarburg at Advent Lutheran Church.
Their marriage was blessed with two children. They moved to Rockport, Texas, in 1985 and enjoyed many wonderful years there before Lynn moved to Plano to be closer to her family. Her love for family and friends was unconditional and she freely extended those feelings and wisdom to all who met her.
With her willingness to talk openly to anyone and everyone, she never met a stranger. She loved to laugh, listen to music, shop and dine out. Her favorite saying was “I can go,” if it meant going with family or friends. She loved to travel to Las Vegas, New York, Seattle, Florida, the Bahamas and back to Wisconsin. She was adventurous and would have gone anywhere had the opportunity presented itself.
She had an infectious smile that could light up a room.
Lynn was a woman you could not help but like because of her charming, energetic and fun personality.
Lynn – “Nana,” “Ebbtide,” “Aunt Ev,” “Mother” and “Mom” – was preceded in death by John, her beloved husband of 58 years. She is survived by many family members who were blessed to have her in their lives as long as they did. Son, John F. Wittenberg IV, M.D. (Sue); daughter, Jolynn J. Roebken (Bill); grandchildren, Bill Roebken (Jennifer), Becki Smorynski (Jeff), John M. Wittenberg (Mandy), Jas M. Wittenberg, Casey Wittenberg; great-grandchildren, Cortney Anderson (Brett), Ciera Wood, Logan and Bode Roebken, Braelyn and Andrew Smorynski, Sydnee and Kayden Wittenberg; and great-great-grandchildren, Kinslee, Keilee and Kyle Anderson. A celebration of Lynn’s life will be held in Cedarburg on Feb. 28, 2015.
