Mary Agnes Wesel Augenstein, passed away on September 6, 2021. She was the wife of Joseph Augenstein. Mary will be deeply missed by her loving husband of 60 years and her family. Born in Marietta, Ohio on December 24, 1941, she was the daughter of William Francis and Genevieve Catherine Smithberger Wesel. She graduated from St. Mary Catholic High School and attended Mountain State Business College. Mary was employed at Marietta Ignition, Inc. and worked as a bookkeeper. Mary was proud to work for the family business that her father began in 1920. Mary was a devoted member of the Basilica of St. Mary of the Assumption in Marietta. She was a member of the Catholic Women’s Club. Mary was always willing to lend a helping hand to others and did so through her participation in service organizations such as the Ohio Child Conservation League (OCCL) and Washington County Right to Life. In retirement, Mary enjoyed traveling, attending concerts at the People’s Bank Theater, tending to her garden, and spending time with family and friends. She also enjoyed swimming with “The Betsey Mills Swimmers.” Mary loved being with people, she had a beaming smile and people were drawn to her loving kindness. She always had time for others, a listening ear, or a kind word. Mary had a deep faith in God and displayed that through her interactions with others. Mary held a true devotion to the Devine Mercy. She and Joe prayed the chaplet daily at 3pm. She is survived by her spouse, Joe and their five children: Teresa (Tom) Hushion of Marietta; Anna (Kerry) Manion of Columbus, Ohio; Mary (Scott) LaBarre of Marietta; Mark (Erin) Augenstein of Parkersburg, WV; and Elizabeth (David) Jung of Arden, NC, 11 grandchildren: Katie (Joe) Baum, Christian Hushion, Hannah and Nathan Manion, Meaghan and Matthew LaBarre, Nora and Josie Augenstein, Lucy, Molly and Nina Jung.

Wesel and Charles W. Wesel, sisters-in-law Luada E. Wesel and Mary Lou Wesel and niece Lisa Marie Wesel.
