William "Bill" and Elfriede Wade

On March 30, 2017, our beloved parents joined hands with the Lord.

Bill was born on July 6, 1931 to Lessie and Robert Wade of Cross Lanes. Bill retired from Chemical Tank Lines, was an Air Force veteran, member of the Masonic Lodge, and was a member of the Teamsters Local 175 since 1955. He is survived by one sister, Mary Fisher of Cross Lanes.

Elfriede was born July 16, 1931 to Maria and Ludwig Gressbach in Frankfurt, Germany. Elfriede was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother and a dedicated homemaker. She is survived by one sister, Renate (Hans) Wegner of Frankfurt, Germany.

On February 9, 2017, they celebrated 62 years of marriage. They were deeply devoted to one another and you would never see one without the other. Together they leave to cherish their memory their son Frank (Sue) Wade and their daughter Annette (Roy) Spradling, three grandchildren, Jennifer (Jeremy) Thacker, Matt (Ally) Wade, and Jacob Wade (Nichole Young), and three great grandchildren, Hannah Thacker, Layla Wade, and Keagan Young.

They are deeply loved by their family and friends and will be greatly missed. To know them was to love them.

In keeping with our parent’s wishes service and internment will be private.
