Obituary -- (Findagrave.com):

Elizabeth "Mickey" Wendell, 85, of Waco, died September 11, 2015. Services will be at Victorious Life Church, 7459 S IH 35, Robinson, Texas, Thursday, September 17, at 11 a.m., with the Rev. Pat Cummings officiating. Burial will follow at Chapel Hill Memorial Park. The family will receive visitors from 6 to 8 p.m., Wednesday, September 16, at Victorious Life Church.

Elizabeth "Mickey" was born November 11, 1929, in Scranton, Pennsylvania, where she lived and attended school until the family moved to East Cleveland, Ohio, in 1943. On her 17th birthday she met her future husband at a dance studio. They married eight months later on August 15, 1947. She then worked as a waitress in the restaurant that her husband co-owned. Her husband, an Army Air Corps World War II veteran, re-enlisted in February, 1950, into the United States Air Force for navigator training. During his training period, she again became a waitress at the Ellington Air Force Base Officer's Club. The day before he received his commission as an officer with navigator wings, she was a waitress; the next day she was an officer's wife! What a thrill it was that day! Several years later he received his pilot wings.

Mickey gave birth to five children during her husband's career in the Air Force. She dedicated her life to her husband and children. At Laughlin AFB and later, when stationed in Austin at Bergstrom AFB, she was a Girl Scout and a Boy Scout leader.

While stationed at James Connally AFB from 1957 to1962, Mickey and Glenn built the Cloverleaf Mobile Home Estates in Bellmead. After his retirement at Bergstrom AFB, Mickey took the initiative to start a day care for young children in their Austin home for several years while her husband commuted back and forth between Austin and Waco to continue to do further expansion to their mobile home park. In 1982 the family moved back to Waco.

During the 80's and 90's, Mickey was an active member of the Waco Civic Garden Club, serving as Vice-President and President for many years. In her later years, she continued to be a loving, generous person as well as care-giver to all. She was a devoted, proud and topnotch mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.

She is survived by her husband of 68 years; and their five children: son, Glenn H. Wendell Jr. and wife, Laura, of Waco, daughters, Laura Smith and husband, Phillip, of Arlington, Martha "Martie" Rodriguez and husband, Bob, of New Braunfels, Glenda Brackmann and husband, Herbert, of Waco, and Constance "Connie" Lednicky and husband, Steve, of Waco; and sisters, Ruthie, Niney, and Delores, of Ohio; 14 grandchildren; and 17 great-grandchildren
