Lola Wurtmann Obituary

Lola Ann Wurtmann, 90, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, January 17, 2023 at Manokin Manor in Princess Anne, MD. Born February 11, 1932 in Queens, NY and raised in Ossining, NY, she was the only child of the late Clara Ann (Gann) Grochan.

At the age of 14, Lola began modeling in Manhattan, NY. In her late 20s she met the love of her life, William “Bill” Edwin Wurtmann, and eagerly resolved to life as a homemaker. Together, Bill and Lola, resided in Cobleskill, NY until moving to the Eastern Shore of Virginia in 2000. Lola’s domestic skills were unmatched. If you were fortunate enough to receive one of her homemade macaroni and cheese dishes, you knew you had entered Heaven. Rarely idle, Lola also enjoyed quilting, knitting, and sewing. Known as “The Candy Lady” to many, Lola faithfully distributed bags of chocolate and caramel to local businesses, police officers, clerks, and EMTs throughout the week. On Fridays, Lola had a paper route and would distribute dozens of Eastern Shore Posts, along with local grocery store ads, to shut-ins and friends.  

Lola is survived by her daughter and son-in-law, Kim and Fred Miller, of Southside Chesconnessex, VA.

Family and friends will gather privately to celebrate her life.
