Gerald (Ed) Wetherill was born March 30, 1937 in Kenton, Ohio to Paul Donald Wetherill and Ruth Mae Wamack. Johanna Reichel (Schatzi) was born May 5, 1939 in Nurnberg, Germany to Konrad Reichel and Elizabeth Igle.
Ed is a retired Sergeant First Class veteran of the United States Army Artillery having served his county honorably for 28 years. Helen was a dedicated homemaker and served in the food and beverage industry for most of her life. They were married in Nurnberg, Germany during his military tour on October 5, 1962. After retiring from WSMR in 1981, Ed and Helen made their lifetime home in Las Cruces where Ed also retired from the Dona Ana County Detention Center.
Ed and Helen were continually active in their community. Ed served as a Trustee for the Military Order of the Cooties, a Chaplin of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles, Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Lodge and the Loyal Order of Moose Lodge. Helen served as the President of the VFW Auxiliary, Department President of the VFW Auxiliary, Fraternal Order of Eagles Auxiliary President, member of the Benevolent and Protective Order of Elks Lodge and Military Order of the Cooties.
Together they shared a full life and their love for one another was evident as they withstood life’s challenges and enjoyed many blessings, especially their daughter, grandson and friends.
They are survived by their only daughter Petra Wetherill living in Peekskill, NY and grandson Christopher Shawn Wetherill (Shawn) living in Las Cruces.
