Josiah M. Wenger

September 7, 2005 — March 6, 2023


Josiah Matthew Wenger was born to Gerald and Malinda (Peters) Wenger on September 7th, 2005 in Mifflintown, PA. His life was tragically ended in a vehicle accident in the early morning hours of Monday, March 6th, 2023, along with his younger brother Gabriel.

Josiah was the third child in a family of seven children. He was sincere and serious about his Christian life. His presence in the home will be keenly missed by his siblings and parents. He gave his heart to God and was baptized into the church of God in Christ, Mennonite, on
October 20th, 2019 by Minister Sylvan Yoder.

Josiah was just entering his prime as a young man, although his dreams of owning a pickup and having a business of his own will never be realized, we trust God had even greater plans. He enjoyed being part of the youth group and filled his place as a song leader. Josiah loved his job driving a farm truck for a relative delivering shavings and sawdust to local farmers. Once as
he waited to make a delivery, he joined right in with the farm children on a trampoline. It seemed anyone he encountered was just a friend he hadn't met yet. He also had a passion for tapping maple trees and boiling the sap into maple syrup for the family's use. Although our hearts are bleeding we feel thankful for his clear testimony.

His survivors include his parents, Gerald and Malinda, siblings Kaitlyn and Devonzhia Woods of Chattanooga, TN, Sharon, Laraine, Everett and Aleric all of the home also one dearly loved niece, Azeenah Woods. Paternal grandparents Menno and Alta Wenger. Maternal uncles and aunts, Matthew and Vonda, Mahlon and Candace, Marlene and Noah Schrey, Roman and
