Viola B. Schwenker (nee Wentworth), 89, of Centerville, died peacefully on Nov 17. She was the beloved wife of the late Wallace H. Schwenker, loving mother of two sons, Stephen (Rebecca) Schwenker and Larry (Cynthia) Schwenker, and four grandchildren, Eric, Matthew, Scott, and Lauren.

After retiring from Wright State University as an administrative secretary in the Office of University Communications, she enjoyed traveling with her husband, volunteering for SISCA and Meals on Wheels, and participating in bible/fellowship studies. She was also active in senior center exercise classes and enjoyed researching her family genealogy. The family would like to thank the staff at the Carlyle House for the support and care provided in recent months. Private family services and entombment were held at Miami Memory Gardens on Nov 23. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to a charity of choice.
