Louise Wehrmann Obituary

Louise Teresa Wehrmann   June 5, 1921 – March 25, 2023

The world lost a bright star on Saturday March 25th when Louise Wehrmann passed away at home at the age of 101.

She was born to Nicolene and Charles Cravotta in Blacklick, Indiana County, PA.  In addition to her parents, she was proceeded in death by her siblings: Angelo (Ruth) Cravotta, Phillip (Eva) Cravotta and Josephine (Joseph) DiStefano and her nieces Yvonne and Nicolene.

She is survived by her loving daughters: Susan(Ronald) Archer. Lorraine (Bill) Giovaniello and Nicole Wehrmann.  Her grandchildren Cindy Schmidt (Dorr Glover), Christine Giovaniello (Eguzkine Egana), Doreen Giovaniello , Bill Giovaniello , Stephanie Archer, Mike Archer (Janine) , Tyler Coleman and Arianne Williams.  Her great grandchildren Sierra (Toran) Quinlan, Breanna (Cole) Yanni, Jacob Archer, Samantha Archer and Gia Camacho.  As well as her two great- great grandsons, Gio and Rory.   She is also survived by several nieces and nephews.   Over the past years, she was for cared by wonderful caregivers from Comfort Keepers that were also special to her.

Louise was a talented artist who enjoyed painting and ceramics with her grandchildren.  She was a free spirited adventurer, traveling solo to Italy to visit her family and explore Italia.   She shared her quick wit, love of music, the arts, fashion and jewelry with all who knew her.  As a teen, she won a singing contest on the radio.  She was always ‘dressed to the nines’ complete with long earrings– even when just going to the store.

She found beauty in everything and her smile and twinkle in her eyes would light up any room.

Family was the center of her world and she received their abundant love in return. Nan, as she was called, has made countless memories with her grandchildren and great grandchildren whether it was climbing a tree or taking Snapchat selfies.   Nan was already for a game of gin rummy and usually won.

“How lucky are we to have had you in our lives.  We love you a bushel and a peck”
