Maureen Wenberg-crop

In Loving Memory

Wenberg, Maureen Ann

On June 8th, the Lord called Maureen Ann (nee Althoff) Wenberg home. She was the cherished wife of John Wenberg, having celebrated 41 years of marriage on May 30th. She was the devoted mother of Kathryn (Ryan) Feero and Margaret Wenberg; loving grandmother of Henry and Harry Feero; sister of John Michael (Ann) Althoff; auntie of Brendan Westerfield, Allison, Johnny, and Mary Kate Althoff, Jess Young, Jill, Bri, and Danee Wenberg, April Hayes, Laura, Daniel, Michael, James and Jonathan Clayton. She is preceded in death by her parents Johnny and Aurlayne Althoff and her dear sister Kathleen and brother-in-law Kent Westerfield.

A native of St. Louis, she graduated from Jennings High School and the University of Missouri-St. Louis. She retired from McDonnell Douglas as a programmer analyst and was a substitute teacher at Kirk Day School. She loved traveling and enjoyed many wonderful vacations with her family. She accomplished her goal of visiting all 50 states. She also loved sewing, quilting, getting pedicures, and drinking margaritas with the girls. She was loved and will be missed by so many.

She belonged to Ridgecrest Baptist Church, where she taught the love of Christ to children and in Vacation Bible School. She faithfully attended Bible Study Fellowship and was a part of the Gideons International. Her passion for Christ touched so many lives, and her sudden passing left many shaken. Yet, we rest in the hope that “Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love” Lamentations 3:32.

Services will be held Thursday, June 13 from 3-6 with a service immediately to follow at Kutis Funeral Home (10151 Gravois Rd St. Louis, MO 63123).

  1. Dear Maureen. What a rude shock to hear about your passing away. While we do not mourn as those without hope, we still do mourn your absence and also with your family. May they experience the comfort of the Holy Spirit. Absent from the body, but present with the Lord. You will be sorely missed 😢🙏

  2. I will forever miss you. I would always call Maureen my school mom! She was always checking in with me and my family. Her love, care and kindness towards myself and my classroom was a true gift from God. I will never forget her sweet hobble of a walk. I know you are with your father, and I’m blessed to have had you in my life! See you in heaven girl!

  4. I only knew for a short time but during that short time she was always smiling. John introduced her to me (her Deacon) as his lovely wife and since time I would greet her as John’s lovely wife. I am praying for the family. I know she is with the Lord.

  9. What a sweet blessing it was to know Maureen. She loved the Lord, her husband, her family and friends, and her church. She will be greatly missed! Because of her connection to Jesus Christ there is no doubt where she is at this moment. She is present with her Lord and Savior (2 Corinthians 5:6). Praying for your family at this difficult time. May the Lord grant you peace and comfort as you mourn her passing. I’m here for you if you need me.

    God Bless,

  10. I only met Maureen a few times but her contagious smile and friendly personality made me feel like I knew her longer. She was an amazing friend and mother to her daughters! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all at this very difficult time.

  11. Maureen was dearly loved by our preschool class. As an extra set of hands and a sub throughout the year, she earned the distinction of being our “Class Grandma” (a nickname given to her by members of our class) and deeply cared for and loved our children. Whenever our class saw her around the building, their faces would immediately light up and they would wave enthusiastically at her.

    Every time Maureen was in our class, she would start out the day by praying for the children. She truly loved them like her own. Maureen greatly blessed our class, and she will be deeply missed.

  14. I am so sad and shocked by this news! Maureen was such a joy to work with at Kirk Day School. She was always willing to step into any classroom and do what was needed. She was a blessing to the children and to those of us who had the privilege of knowing her. I’m so thankful that because of the work that Jesus did on her behalf, that she is resting in His presence! I am so sorry for her dear family as I know this will be a deep loss in their lives. We at KDS will be praying for peace in the hearts of her husband, children, grandchildren, and family who will miss her terribly!

  15. Maureen and I met and bonded through our daughters’ friendship, and our love for them. But the bigger blessing was that we became friends above and beyond that, and I will greatly miss her! One thing is for sure…she loved her family!

  16. Maureen was one of a kind as a substitute teacher at KDS! She brought joy to our classes and was so faithful in her walk with the Lord. I will truly miss our fun and engaging conversations about education, students, family, growing up in St. Louis and whatever “whimsical” topic we would find ourselves in! Maureen was an amazing woman and I feel privileged to have known her. In peace, Resting in Jesus’ arms, my friend.

  18. Maureen was a blessing to me as she had such a servant’s heart. She was willing to sub where ever needed and always had a smile on her face. The children, staff and faculty at KDS all loved her and will miss her deeply. I will continue to pray for your family as you take comfort knowing Maureen is in the arm’s of Jesus.

  19. Oh no, I’m deeply saddened to hear about Maureen’s passing. I had the pleasure of knowing her for many years during my time in St. Louis, where she selflessly served at our church, Garden Baptist Church, teaching Sunday school. My daughter still fondly remember her lessons. Maureen was a devout servant of God, and her legacy will live on. May she rest with the angels until we reunite. Brother John, may God offer you comfort and strength during this difficult time.

  20. Maureen was such a delight to be around and so admirable. I treasured her friendship and am so sorry I wasn’t aware of her illness. A true servant of God and an example for all, she will be thought of often. Blessings to the family.

  21. What He has taken from us, He has given to Himself. And that gift is equally as much a gift for Him as it is for our living sister in Christ, Maureen. She has been a true blessing to us, and she will be a true blessing for our blessed Savior.

  22. I always looked forward, during my morning walk with my dog, to meeting up with Maureen & Mary (they always walked together) & catching up on what was new.
    One morning, while standing & chatting on a neighbor’s driveway, he came out for his newspaper…jokingly asked if he could get us some lawn chairs so we could visit in comfort. Maureen then thanked him for his suggestion & said “some coffee would be nice also”. That was Maureen, she just went along with the joke & added joy to all of our mornings. My walks are not as much fun any longer. I miss her terribly.

  23. John, Maggie, Katie, Kent please accept my deepest condolences on the loss of deeply loved Maureen. During our 46 years of friendship Maureen shared many stories of your love for each other and your Grandparents and dear Aunt. Terry and I felt like extended family. Maureen had a big heart and an inspiring faith. I do not have another friend like her. We shared a fondness for many arts & crafts handed down through generations. She also
    provided great support and perspective on the trials of life. She was strong. I’m happy she experienced becoming a Grandmother. Peace and compassion to you, and may Jesus carry you through this loss. Maureen will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace good and faithful servant. I hope we meet again.

  24. How sweet it is to have known Maureen. Though years and distance have separated our families for ages, thoughts of fun and happy times endure. God bless you, John and girls. We will never forget. Sending love and prayers.

  25. Our sincere sympathy to John, Katie, Maggie and the rest of the family. I met Maureen when our daughters attended Central Christian School. Maureen and I helped many years with the Partners in Education gift wrap fund raiser at the school and became good friends. We also knew each other when our daughters then went to Westminster Christian Academy. We also knew John and Maureen through the Gideons and Maureen would be there faithfully checking the reservations for some of the Gideon events. She will be missed by many people and her life impacted many people over the years. We look forward to that day when we will be reunited in Heaven. Our love to the family in the days and weeks ahead.

  26. I will remember Maureen for her consistency, wisdom, prayerfulness, and love. She was my go-to when I needed someone to cover my class, and she always cared for my students so well. I will miss the conversations we had at recess or lunch when she was subbing for other classes. She was such an encouragement and displayed Jesus’ love everywhere she went.

    We miss you on this side of heaven!

  27. John, Katie, and Maggie I was shocked to hear the news of Maureen’s passing. I am incredibly sorry. When I think back on my time at CCS and WCA a lot of it includes your family. I was happy to see Mrs. Wenberg during the school day coordinating Innsbruck fundraisers, for carpool, after school at your house, or in the bookstore. She was so joyful and quick witted. You are in my thoughts as you navigate the next few days, weeks, and months and process your loss.

  28. I’m so saddened to hear about the loss of Maureen. She was such a guiding light! She was my BSF childrens admin leader when I served in the children’s department. She loved us like her own and was so invested in our lives and families. She took her volunteer position so seriously and loved the Lord with her whole heart. This news is so shocking and I give my deepest sympathies to her family. She loved them so deeply. She made a lasting impact on me, and by reading the other comments so many others. My prayers are with you all!

  29. Maureen was a lovely person and made a deep impression in a very short time. Despite having a student at KDS for only one year, when I came to the school for activities, she never failed to tell me individually how much she loved him. And I witnessed her kindness to him from afar, even when she didn’t know I was there. Thankful for people like Maureen and their loving influence on kids and parents as well!
