    Date: Sun, 23 Oct 2005 09:26:52 -0700 (PDT)
    St. Marys, Elk, Pennsylvania

    10/14/2005
    Devina Ellen "Dee" Prechtl, 89, of 589 Kerner Ave.,
    St. Marys, passed away early Friday morning.

    She was born in Canton, OH on March 21, 1916, the
    daughter of the late William Charles and Meryl Hayes
    Wolfe.

    Mrs. Prechtl was married to the late Leo Prechtl in
    St. Cecelia's Church in Benezette on June 26, 1938.

    She is survived by two daughters, Patricia Ann Pollitt
    of St. Marys and Jean Marie Dragovich of Wellsboro
    along with four sisters; Sarah (Mrs. John) Fries of
    Baltimore, MD, Anna Virginia (Mrs. Homer) Knoch of
    California, Isabelle (Mrs. Alex) Dorawitch of Orlando,
    FL, Genevieve (Mrs. William) Leikam of Glen Burnie, MD
    and one brother, Phillip Reese Wolfe of Hayes, VA.

    She is also survived by five grandsons; Leonard Leo,
    Mark Steven and Michael Wicket, Todd Edward and Troy
    Dragovich, three granddaughters; Debbie Marie Wickett,
    Wendy Ann Wickett and Janet Dragovich, nine
    great-grandchildren; Mark Wickett, Jr., Danielle Marie
    and Leanne Sheldon, Austin, Cole, Cassie, Kayla, Riley
    and Caden Dragovich.

    In addition to her husband who passed away on November
    23, 1953, she was preceded in death by her mother, in
    October 1918. Her father then married Anna Reese
    Larkin Wolfe who passed away on December 26, 1982, her
    father passed away on February 16, 1959. Also five
    brothers preceded her, including Howard Wolfe on March
    3, 1993, Charles William Wolfe on April 27, 1942,
    Edward Joseph Wolfe in 1988, Francis Willard who
    passed away in infancy in 1929, Leslie Clair Wolfe in
    October 1986 and Thomas Harry Wolfe on January 4, 2005
    and two sisters; Mary Elizabeth Fischer who passed
    away on November 22, 1954 and Maretta Gail Harper on
    April 2, 1997.

    She attended Benezette and Weedville schools and was
    previously employed by Pure Carbon Co. and St. Marys
    Carbon Co., until her retirement on March 31, 1983.
    She was also the driving force for the Prechtl-Wickett
    Upholstery business which made draperies, slipcovers,
    etc.

    Mrs. Prechtl was a member of the Orange, both local,
    Pomona and the Girl Scouts. She enjoyed sewing for her
    family and friends. She seemed very much to enjoy
    doing for others, just for the simple joy of seeing
    smiles on their faces. She took courses in drawing,
    painting, doll making and cooking. After retirement
    she kept busy by donating her time and effort
    decorating and painting the Girl Scout Proctor House,
    something she thought was worthwhile for the
    community.

    There will be no visitation. Family and friends are
    invited to attend a Mass of Christian Burial to be
    celebrated in the St. Marys Church on Monday at 10
    a.m. Burial will be in the St. Marys Catholic
    Cemetery.

    Memorials, if desired, may be made to the Christian
    Food Bank, P.O. Box 1033, St. Marys, PA 15857.

    The Lynch-Radkowski Funeral Home is in charge of
    arrangements.
