Mary Jane Warrenfeltz, 82, of Middletown, Maryland, passed away Wednesday, November 27, 2019, at Doey’s House in Hagerstown, Maryland, with her loving family by her side in her final hours. She was married to Bernard L. “Lefty” Warrenfeltz for more than 60 years.
Born on November 7, 1937, in Frederick, Maryland, Mary was the daughter of the late Harry S. and Alma F. (Summers) Ramsburg. She was a member of Frederick High School Class of 1955. Mary worked as a waitress at Duke’s Truck Stop on Route 40 where she had the opportunity to meet one of her country music idols, Patsy Cline. She also worked at American Optical in Frederick. In 1960, Mary joined United Insurance Company of America in Frederick and Hagerstown, and retired after 40 years of service in 2000. She was a longtime member of the Frederick Church of the Brethren and an original member of the Prospectors Sunday School Class. Most recently, Mary attended church services at the Chapel at Fahrney Keedy Memorial Home and Village in Boonsboro, Maryland, where she had been residing since September 2019. She was a member of the AMVETS Valley Memorial Post 9 Auxiliary and Sacketts Fun Group. She enjoyed playing Bingo, bowling, reading, Bible studies and listening to Christian and country music, but her greatest joy was spending time with her family.
Mary is survived by two daughters, Vicki Warrenfeltz Corson and husband Ozzie of Chantilly, Virginia, and Brenda Kline and husband Richard of Myersville; and one son, Michael Warrenfeltz of Frederick. She was a loving Mamaw to grandchildren, Angie Keeney and husband Josh of Middletown, Laura Corson of Honolulu, Bethany Kline, Brandon Kline and fiancée Samantha Barbeito of Myersville, Emily Corson of Denver, Brooks Warrenfeltz of Frederick, and Brianna Warrenfeltz of Baltimore; and two great-grandchildren, Ryker and Emberleigh Keeney of Middletown.
