CLARENCE WILT


Clarence Wilt was born on July 23, 1891. He was the oldest child of Joseph Wilt and Martha Stern. Clarence made his home around Fortville, Indiana and married a woman named Maud Brummell. They didn't have any children.


CLARENCE WILT


Clarence and Maud lived in a one room house. As the years went by everything the couple accumulated was stacked floor to ceiling in the house. Maud was injured and took to her bed where she stayed for many years. To pass the time, she crocheted and did needle work. In the early 1970's, Clarence came in from working and took out a cigar to light it. His clothes were oil covered and the flame caught his clothing on fire. Maud crawled out of the house to safety and was treated for smoke inhalation. Clarence was killed in the fire in October 1975. Maud's physicians determined that there wasn't any physical reason that she was incapable of walking and had her doing physical therapy and finally got her up on a walker before she passed away at a nursing home on February 18, 1978.

VESTA CHRISTENA WILT



Vesta Christena Wilt was born on May 7, 1898 in Noblesville, Madison County, Indiana. She was the fourth child and first daughter of Joe and Martha Wilt.


NELLIE & VESTA WILT
Ages 4 & 7


When Vesta was about 10, her parents divorced. Her mother's sister, Margaret, had passed away in 1908 leaving two young children. In 1909 Vesta's mother, Martha, married her former brother-in-law (Margaret Ellen's widower), William Frank Clawson. He brought to the family Vesta's cousins, Ralph and "Nanny" Clawson. The family moved to Arrow Avenue in Anderson, Indiana. Despite the divorce, Vesta was very happy as a young woman and was very active in the social life in Anderson. She attended the Central Christian Church and met her future husband, Glen Roy Johnson. Vesta attended the High School in Anderson, Indiana.


Vesta Wilt



Vesta and Glen were married at her mother's house on December 24, 1916. The couple moved to Ohio in 1923. Four children were born to this marriage. The youngest child, a daughter, was premature and died at six weeks of age. The couple moved quite frequently due to Glen's military career in the Army Air Corps, which later became known as the Air Force. Vesta loved to entertain and visit with family and friends. After retirement, they still traveled quite frequently. They went on many trips "out west" to Oregon to visit Vesta's siblings, Nellie, John and Clifford after Martha passed away. They also spent some winters in Florida where many of their friends "wintered". To their family and the many grandchildren and great-grandchildren who were fortunate to grow up knowing them and loving them, they were "Nana" and "Grandad".


VESTA & NELLIE



Vesta suffered from many illnesses in her lifetime. Her youngest daughter remembers that Vesta was "sickly". In the early 1970's, Vesta fell and broke her elbow. The resulting hospitalization was very long and during it she suffered from blood clots and health problems. After that, Vesta suffered a series of heart attacks. Just when it seemed that the health problems were behind them, Glen fell on a trip to Washington state and suffered a blood clot on his brain. The symptoms mirrored a stroke but soon the physicians knew that surgery was necessary. Glen spent several months in the hospital - having to learn the basics all over again. In the early 80's, after several months of illness for both of them and having a full time live-in nurse, Vesta suffered a health crisis again. She entered Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio in mid-January. During the afternoon on January 19, 1984, she passed away. Family came in from many states and once more gathered at the apartment that had been their home for so long. Burcham Funeral Home in Fairborn, Ohio was in charge of the arrangements and the funeral was held at Trinity United Church of Christ. It was very cold that day and touches of snow were still on the ground. The grand- and great-grandchildren were pallbearers for Vesta. A short service was held at the chapel at Glen Haven Memorial Gardens. Burial followed after the mourners had left. Exactly one year later minus a day, Glen passed away at his residence at Trinity Nursing Home in Beavercreek, Ohio.
