Mary Jane  Wertz
Surrounded by her loving family, Mary Jane Wertz, 71, of Howard, passed from this life at her home on Dec. 1, 2019.
She was born Jan. 31, 1948, in Bellefonte, a daughter of the late Ralph H. and Lucille L. (Yearick) Rote. On Dec. 19, 1963, she married the love of her life, Blair O. Wertz, who preceded her in death.

Mary was employed at the former Corning Glass Works, but her main responsibility, which she took seriously, was taking care of her family.
She was known for her many talented craft skills. Most important to her, Mary Jane loved spoiling her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She is survived by one daughter and son-in-law, Shirley A. and Dave Stankiewicz of Fredericksburg; two sons and daughters-in-law, Blair H. and Christine Wertz of Millmont, and Clint H. and Sheila Wertz of Loganton; seven grandchildren, Brandi, Orian, Donald, CJ, Nobellee, Jaclyn and Marshal; and 10 great-grandchildren.
Mary was preceded in death by two sisters, Amy and Jacqueline; and one brother, Paul.

In accordance with Mary Jane's wishes, there are no services.

Contributions in her memory may be given to the American Cancer Society, 1375 Martin Street, Ste. 206, State College, PA 16803.

Arrangements are under the direction of Steven R. Neff Funeral Home in Millheim. Online condolences may be sent to the family at
