Marjean Mae Wuethrich, 91, of Fishers, formerly of Sun City, Nevada, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, Nov. 20. She passed away peacefully at Woodland Terrace in Carmel. 

Marjean was born on April 24, 1928, in Francesville, to the late Joseph and Huldah Gudeman. On Oct. 5, 1946, she married Willis Wuethrich, sharing almost 71 years of marriage together.

Marjean was the youngest of four and raised on the family farm. She was a caring daughter, loving wife, beloved mom and grandma, loyal friend, creative homemaker and beautiful seamstress. After marriage, Marjean and Willis continued the family farming tradition, working as a team for almost 50 years. They were also instrumental in starting the First Baptist Church in Francesville, where she taught Sunday school and was a youth leader. As a young married woman, she was highly active in home economics social activities, West Central Music Boosters and the Baptist Ladies Missionary Guild. Marjean was a devoted prayer warrior for the people she loved. Her smile and caring way will be remembered by many. To God be the glory.

Survivors include her daughters: Sonja [Dan] Ullery, Elaine [Ben] Williams, Melody Gutwein Braun and Willa [Jack] Odle; seven grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren; sister Natalie Gudeman; brother LeRoy [Kay] Gudeman; and many nieces and nephews.
