October 29, 1933 - May 2, 2021
NAUROTH, Mary “Joan”, age 87, of Waynesville, passed away Sunday, May 2, 2021 at her residence. Joan was a faithful member of the St. Francis De Sales Catholic Church in Lebanon, where she was the organist for over 60 years. Sweet, nonjudgemental, and helpful, Joan had a great sense of humor and loved unconditionally. She enjoyed music, and was known to get up and dance when the music inspired her. She also enjoyed playing Euchre with her family and sitting outside enjoying the weather and her flowers. The family will always remember the tradition that she created by making Christmas and Thanksgiving so special at her home. She will also be remembered as an excellent cook, especially for her delicious sauerkraut and ribs. She was preceded in death by her husband Frank in 1992; one daughter Terry Thuney; daughter-in-law Linda Nauroth; and her parents Peter Vernon and Ruth Hauser. She is survived by five children Jim (Carol) Nauroth, Mike (Theresa) Nauroth, Barb (Gene) Prater, Dave Nauroth, and Mary (Hearl) Williams; 12 grandchildren; many great grandchildren; one great great granddaughter; and three brothers Bill (Rose) Vernon, John (June) Vernon, and Tom (Rhonda) Vernon. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held 12:00 PM Friday, May 7 at St. Francis De Sales Catholic Church in Lebanon. Father Bernard Weldishofer will be celebrating Joan’s life. The family will receive friends 10:00 - 1100 AM Friday at Stubbs-Conner Funeral Home in Waynesville. Burial will be in Miami Valley Memory Gardens. If desired, contributions may be made to Hospice of Dayton or the Alzheimer’s Association. The visitation on Friday will be streamed live.
