Lorna Mae Wehrenberg

June 27, 1935 - June 29, 2019
Born in Queens, NY
Resided in Crandon Lake sect. of Hampton Twp., NJ


Lorna Mae Wehrenberg, 84, of the Crandon Lake section of Hampton Township, died Saturday, June 29, 2019, at home.

Lorna was born in Queens, NY to the late Charles and Marie Bickart and was raised in Glenrock, NJ. She lived in Ridgefield, NJ for a short period after she was married, spent winters in Port St. Lucie, FL for the last 27 years and lived Hampton Twp for the past 59 years. Lorna worked as the head cook at Kittatinny Regional High School for 16 years prior to her retirement in 1992.

Lorna was a longtime member of the First Presbyterian Church of Sparta. She was also an active member of the Mets Booster Club in Port St Lucie FL and loved watching her Mets during spring training in Port St. Lucie. Lorna enjoyed her trips to Europe and Hawaii and was brought joy by the beauty of nature, especially hummingbirds. Most of all, she loved being a grandmother and cherished the moments spent with her grandchildren and grand pups; she was a one of a kind special person who touched the lives of many in such an extraordinary way.

Lorna is survived by her husband of 62 years, Robert Wehrenberg; a daughter, Laura Caldarella and husband, Mike, of Hampton Twp.; a son Robert Wehrenberg and wife, Andrea, of Hampton Twp.; six grandchildren, Michael, Christopher, Tasha, Kayla, Tyler and Carly; two great-grandchildren, Olivia and Violet; and her twin sister, Marie Miller of Bloomingburg, NY.
