Mary Jeanette Langenderfer

Mary Jeanette (Myers) Langenderfer, age 91, went to be with her Lord Jesus Christ, joining her late husband Albert on September 4, 2021. She was residing at the Kingston Residence of Sylvania. She was born on November 7, 1929 to Edward and Maude Myers. She attended St. Mary’s Assumption grade school and was a 1947 graduate of Metamora High School.

Mary was a faithful member of the Holy Trinity Catholic Parish and active in the Altar Rosary Society. She had a deep devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary. On August 27, 1949, Mary Jeanette married Albert Langenderfer, her forever love of 68 years. Initially, she worked at The Pilliod Cabinet Company in Swanton, OH. Leaving there, she became a full-time mother. On their small farm, she drove a tractor and worked in the fields alongside her husband. Besides being a wife and raising seven children, she lovingly took care of her mother at home, until passing in 1972. For eleven years, Mary Jeanette drove a school bus for the Evergreen Community. She loved children and they loved her.

Mary Jeanette, a special woman, exemplified the meaning of her life. She showed how her happiness came from caring and sharing with others. Her many acts of kindness were expressions of her love, given freely to her family, friends, neighbors, community and church. Most will remember Mary as a truly humble, generous and giving person.
Mary thoroughly enjoyed her busy life. Her many activities included: Pinochle and Euchre card clubs, bowling, golfing, knitting/crocheting, crafts, Notre Dame (The Fighting Irish) football games/tailgating, and world travels. Mary Jeanette rarely missed her children/grandchildren’s activities and sporting events. The family and others will always remember her famous “Bubble Bread”, along with her sweet rolls and many delicious desserts.

Mary and Al visited the sick in homes, hospitals, and nursing facilities, taking them “Communion” and “The Word of God”. As she settled in at Kingston, Mary worked jigsaw puzzles with other residents and always had one set up in her own room. She continued to play Euchre and Bingo up to the very end of her life. The staff at Kingston expressed their fondness for her and said she always wore a smile and never complained.

Mary Jeanette is survived by her loving/devoted children, Teresa (Tony) Bettinger, Joan (David) Miller, Gary (Pam) Langenderfer, Carol (Darrel) Ott, John (Deb) Langenderfer, Marie (Bruce) Truckor and Linda (Todd) Hoyt; 22 Grandchildren; 33 Great-Grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.


Mary was preceded in death by her parents, loving husband, Albert, Granddaughter, Jennifer Bettinger, and sisters, Theresa Truckor, Regina Langenderfer, and Ollie Simon.

Family and friends may visit Wednesday, September 8th from 3 to 8 p.m. at the Weigel Funeral Home, 204 Chestnut St. in Swanton, where a Vigil Service will be held at 7:30 p.m. Visitation will continue Thursday, September 9th from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. at Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Assumption, where a Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 10:00 a.m. with Fr. Michael Dandurand presiding. Interment will follow at St. Mary’s Cemetery.

A special thank you to the staff at Kingston and nurses of Hospice of Northwest Ohio, for all of their wonderful and compassionate care.

Memorial contributions may be made to Holy Trinity Catholic Church, 2649 US 20, Swanton, OH 43558.

Joanie your entire family is in our thoughts and prayers as you grieve the loss of your mother. Her and your dad were the kindest people always giving a hug at the sporting events and anytime I saw them. Love to you always.

My sympathy to the entire Al and Mary family. The bubble bread queen is now baking for everyone in heaven I am sure. Watched the Keepsake video...what a great legacy your Mom has with such a great (big) family! I remember your Mom and Dad and family at card parties, chicken barbeques and other get togethers which were always great fun.

I was sorry to hear about your mom. She was a very special neighbor and friend to our family. I hold a special place in my heart for her as she comforted me after my accident. Who else would come to my rescue and lay in the pouring down rain with me? My thoughts and prayers are with the whole family.
Love and Prayers,
