Obituary: Franklin Evening Star 21 Apr 1962
Nettie C. Wirey dies Saturday

Mrs. Nettie C. Wirey, formerly of Johnson County, died in the Hilltop Nursing Home at Greenwood, Saturday morning at 5:15 o'clock. She had been ill for the past year and two weeks ago her condition became critical.

Funeral services have been set for 10 o'clock Tuesday morning and will be in the Edinburg Methodist Church, with burial following in Rest Haven Cemetery there.

Friends may call at the Vandivier-Parsley Funeral Home in Franklin Sunday afternoon from 2 until 5 o'clock, at night from 7 to 9 o'clock and the same hours on Monday. They are invited to attend the rites.

Mrs. Wirey was born in Bartholomew County on June 11, 1879, and was the daughter of the late John Wesley and Hannah Milnes Coy. She was educated in the Bartholomew County schools.

Moved To County

She became the bride of Alvin Wirey on April 16, 1899, and nine children were born to them. Shortly after their marriage, the family moved to Johnson County.

After the death of Mr. Wirey on April 5, 1950, Mrs. Wirey sold the farm and moved to 4955 Camden Street in Indianapolis. The last two years, she had made her home with her children.

In her girlhood, Mrs. Wirey united with the New Bethel Christian Church in Brown County, now part of Camp Atterbury, and as long as the church was in existence, had continued her membership there.

The survivors are four sons, Orville Wirey, of Speedway; Oris Wirey, of Dunkirk; Floyd Wirey, of Trafalgar; Maurice [Marion] Wirey, of Las Vegas, Nev.; and three daughters, Mrs. Wayne Hamilton, of Morgantown; Mrs. Fletcher Warren, of Greenwood; and Mrs. Calvin A. Wantland, of Indianapolis.

Others remaining are 16 grandchildren, 31 great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildren, seven sisters, and three brothers.

Two children preceded Mrs. Wirey in death.
