Martha Wagner

Martha C. (Frey) Wagner, 87, formerly of Carey, died Monday, July 13, 2020, at The Legacy at The Heritage in Findlay.
On Nov. 5, 1932, Martha was born on the family farm in Kirby, to the late Raymond and Arlys (Kentfield) Frey.
Martha married Alfred N. Wagner on June 7, 1952, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Kirby. He preceded her in death on Dec. 26, 1998. Together they raised their four children, Diane (James) Junga of Ann Arbor, Mich., Dennis (Joy) Wagner of Carey, Edward (Deb) Wagner of Findlay, and Joseph (Amy) Wagner of Marysville. Martha and Alfred shared a love of traveling, dancing, spending time with their family, serving their church community and were committed to building a firm foundation of faith in their children at Our Lady of Consolation. Martha found immeasurable joy in her 11 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and five step-great-grandchildren. She will be deeply missed by her two sisters, Edna “Cookie” (the late Mark) Davidson of Nevada, and Evelyn (Paul) Bouillon of New Riegel.
Preceding her in death and welcoming her to God’s eternal kingdom were brothers, Paul Frey and Ronald Frey; two sisters, Kate Bouillon and Elizabeth Reiter; one daughter-in-law, Susan Wagner; and one great-grandchild, Tori Boes.
Martha was a 1950 graduate of Upper Sandusky High School. She was an amazing homemaker who always made sure that bellies were full, the house was tidy and everyone under her watch was well cared for and happy. She also worked at Greenbriar Florist and Catering, Our Lady of Consolation Shrine and Poverello Credit Union.
She was a member of The Basilica of Our Lady of Consolation Church where she was a member of the Rosary Altar Society and a lector. She was also a proud member of the Mother of Twins Club and Hb Club.
