Theresa A. Wissinger Wine


Theresa A. Wissinger Wine, 78, of Flora, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Sunday, May 29, 2016 at her home.  Theresa was born in Urbana, Ohio on October 16, 1937 and was raised by her aunt and uncle, Sylvia Kleindienst and Paul Wissinger.   She was raised in Urbana and was a 1956 graduate of Greenon High School in Springfield, Ohio.   She also received a business degree.  In the 1970’s she moved to Flora with her husband, Roger W.

Other than being a reborn Christian, Theresa was a Nascar and a Tony Stewart fan.  She was very proud to have and wear her Tony Stewart championship jacket.
