A Homegoing Celebration for Aloha Marie Anderson Wagner Born Into Earthly Life on May 17, 1925 Born Into God’s Kingdom through baptism, Entered Into Eternal Life April 26, 2018

Aloha was born in Wilbur, WA on May 17, 1925 and baptized in Wilbur Lutheran Church. She graduated from Wilbur High School in 1942. She worked at “Ma’s Café” after high school for 3 years. She married Arthur E. Wagner on July 4, 1943, in Spokane. She and Art had 3 children: Eldon E. Wagner, Sharon M. Wagner and David L. Wagner. She worked full time at Holmes Grocery Store for 17 years. She then found her niche in selling Avon Beauty Products, which she did very successfully for 33 yrs. in the Wilbur, Creston and Almira area. For almost of all of these years, she won the “Miss Albee” award for most sales in the state of over $10,000 within the calendar year. But, the priceless and enduring part of her job was always making many dear and life-long friends. Her church home was St. Paul Lutheran Church, which became Wilbur Lutheran Church when it merged with the Danish Trinity Lutheran Church. Aloha is survived by her two sons Eldon (and Susan) Wagner and David Wagner along with one grandchild and two great grand children. She is preceded in death by her husband, Arthur in 2007 and her daughter Sharon in 2011. She enjoyed her fruit trees, and a big vegetable garden which she then canned all her harvests for winter and following. She crocheted afghans, dollies and table runners which she gave away to family and friends. Her favorite times were spent in her daily visits with her daughter, Sharon. A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held on Monday, May 7, 2018 at 11:00 AM at the Wilbur Lutheran Church, 306 SE Trinity, Wilbur, WA with Pastor Laura Terasaki, officiating.
