Dorothy Funk

Mrs. Dorothy P. Funk, 87, of Carlos, went peacefully to be with our Lord at 9:30 p.m. on Monday, December 7, 2009 at Forest Park Health Campus, in Richmond.

Born on January 11, 1922 in Richmond, In, she was the daughter of Howard and Olive Harter Wettig. She graduated from Richmond High School in 1940 and married Otto Paul Funk on September 7, 1946. They shared 61 years of farming together near Carlos before Paul's death on December 9, 2007.

Dorothy was a retired beautician. She held a Master Beauty License and was owner and operator of Catalpa Lane Beauty Shop, for 25 years. She was a faithful member of the First Church of Christ in Lynn and formerly attended Bible Study Fellowship for several years. She was a 50-year member, and past worthy matron of the Order of Eastern Star, Chapter #571. Dorothy loved to cook and bake. She took great pleasure in serving anyone who came to their home. No one ever left hungry.

Dorothy will be missed by her daughters and sons-in-law, Paula and Ronnie Ice, of Muncie and Patricia and Jim McComb, of Fountain City; four grandchildren, six great-grandsons, four nephews and one niece.

Dorothy was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Otto Paul Funk; her sister, Ruth Juanita Wettig; two brothers, Virgil Howard Wettig and Donald Wettig.

Paul Nichols and Pastor Ray Ellis will conduct a funeral ceremony at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, December 12, at the First Church of Christ, 206 West Church Street, Lynn. Interment will follow in Fountain Park Cemetery in Winchester.

Family and friends may gather for visitation from 10-11 a.m. Saturday, December 12, at the church.

I send my sincere condolences to the family on your loss.

I have childhood memories of occasionally visiting the Funk farm while growing up in Indiana (Argus and Mary Ogborn's son) and Dorothy's kindness.

I am so sorry for your loss. I have memories of Paula and Patty at an early age. I remember our family reunions. My father, Argus Ogborn, has passed on too. Please accept our condolences.

My condolences to Patty and Paula and the rest of the family. She was a pleasure to care for when I was employed at Forest Park. Blessings,
