Karen Kay Westerhof Wendland, 80, of Lynchburg went to be with her Lord and Savior, May 12, 2019 after an extended battle with Alzheimer’s.

Karen is survived by her husband, Terry Wendland; children, Coleen, Doreen, Deborah, Christopher and Dean; five grandchildren and three great grandchildren.

Karen was adopted at an early age by Theodore and Rose Westerhof of Davenport, Iowa, and brought up on a farm. Following marriage to her loving husband Terry in 1958, they were blessed with a large family, her life’s treasure.

The Family would like to thank Centra Health Home Hospice for the stellar attention and comfort they provided for Karen during her final days.

In lieu of flowers or food, the Family requests your consideration of a memorial contribution to the Alzheimer’s fund.

A Funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 25, 2019 at Tharp Funeral Home Chapel, 220 Breezewood Drive, Lynchburg, VA. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service.

The family appreciates all the kind comments and condolences we have received.  To help us thank you each personally, please leave your mail or email address on the funeral home condolence page (or call the funeral home directly if you prefer) so we may thank each of you.

Tharp Funeral Home & Crematory, Lynchburg, is assisting the family.
