Florence M. Wittig

September 24, 1922 ~ May 4, 2014

Florence M. Wittig, 91, passed away May 4, 2014. She was born September 24, 1922, on Pine Creek in Okanogan County, WA to Ernest and Lulu Ewbank. She spent her early years on the Turtle Lake homestead until 1924, when the family moved to Tonasket, where she attended school, graduating in 1940. She met her future husband, J.W. Wittig, that summer at Conconully Bible Camp. They soon fell in love and were married on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 1943. They made their home on the Wittig’s Jameson Lake ranch, near Mansfield, WA, for the majority of their 62 years together. Side by side they farmed and raised their family. Christ was the center of family life and she was involved in many church activities, as well as a longtime Mansfield Grange member. Many memories of gathering together with family and friends, highlighted by her fried chicken, potato salad and, of course, chocolate chip cookies. J.W. passed away in 2005.

Florence is survived by two daughters, Miriam Wittig of SeaTac, WA and Anita Sprauer (Joe) of Withrow, WA; and three sons, Bill Wittig (Tonya) of Sedro Woolley, WA, Paul Wittig (Heidi) of Mansfield, WA and Eldon Wittig of Overton, NV. She is also survived by 17 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren and caregiver, Pam Abutbol. She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, Harold and Fay; and granddaughter, Holly Wittig.

A Graveside Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, May 31, 2014, at the Mansfield Cemetery. (If inclement weather, Community Church, 36 2nd Avenue, Mansfield). In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Mansfield Ambulance Fund (P.O. Box 326, Mansfield, WA 98830), Conconully Bible Camp (P.O. Box 1312, Omak, WA 98841), or the charity of your choice.
