Jacqueline J. Wunderle (née Lawson)

Born: 03/05/1941 Passed:

Jacqueline J. Wunderle (née Lawson), age 80, passed away December 30, 2021, in her home surrounded by family and loved ones.  Born March 5, 1941, in Cleveland, she was a resident of Parma for nearly 60 years.

Jackie graduated from Maple Heights High School in 1959 and, shortly thereafter, married her high school sweetheart, Bill Wunderle.  Jackie was wife and mother, and devoted her early years to raising her children and supporting her husband.  Later, she worked in the staffing office at Parma Community General Hospital until she retired.

Jackie was very patriotic with a deep love for her country.  She saw her husband, son, and three grandsons join the Army and serve their country.  Jackie was a talented artist, well known for her hand-tooled leather products and winner of a number of regional and national awards for her work.  Jackie had a strong faith in God and was an active member of New Life Fellowship in Parma and, later, the NEO Church in Seven Hills.

Finally, Jackie’s greatest love was her family – especially her grandchildren – and she made it a priority to attend her grandchildren’s sporting and special events.  Jackie was known for her zest for life and her ability to never call anyone a stranger.

Jackie is survived by her children:  William Wunderle (Vicki), Jennifer Schlund (Mike), Laura Gorshe, and Matthew Wunderle (Melanie); grandchildren, Christine Neal (Jacob), William Wunderle (Lauren), Michael Schlund, Patrick Schlund (Sophie), Zachary Schlund, Danny Kava (Heather), and Amanda Gorshe; and great-grandchildren, Juliana Neal, Emmalynn Wunderle, Wade Neal, Liam Wunderle, Daniel Kava, and Christopher Kava.  Jackie is preceded in death by her parents, John and Francis Lawson; her sister, Jo Anne Hopton; and the love of her life, her husband, Bill Wunderle.

Family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Life ceremony on Friday, January 21st with visitation from 4:00 to 6:30 pm and the service at 6:30 pm, at the NEO Church, 7593 Elmhurst Drive, Seven Hills, OH 44131.  Private Interment will take place on Saturday, January 22nd at Crown Hill Cemetery, in Twinsburg, Ohio.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Jackie’s name may be made to NEO Church (https://neo.churchcenter.com/give) or to a favorite charity of your choice.

    I am so thankful that I had the opportunity to get to know you through Bible Study and Women’s Ministry at NEO Church. Your light for Jesus shone brightly, and your smile was a blessing to all who crossed your path. We miss you, but we know you are with Jesus now, and we’ll see you again soon! Much love to your family as they learn to navigate this life without you.
