Carolyn C. "Grammy" Arentz, of Hanover, passed peacefully from this life April 23, 2011, with her loving family by her side, after a long and courageous battle with cancer. She was the wife of H. Wayne Arentz for 47 years.

Born April 2, 1944, in Hanover, she was a daughter of the late Carroll E. Utz and Evelyn E. (Weidner) Utz Altland.

She was a graduate of New Oxford High School, class of 1962.

Carolyn and her husband Wayne owned an auto detailing business, "Arentz Car Cleaning" for more than 25 years. Mrs. Arentz also was a bus driver for Southwestern School District for 18 years prior to retiring in 2010. She really enjoyed driving the children to school and camaradery with the other school bus drivers. Carolyn also liked to take rides in her Mustang convertible and their "55" Ford pick up truck. She was also an avid collector of Longaberger Baskets for the past 15 years and was a charter member of the Longaberger Collector's Club. She attended many shows and especially had fun taking trips to their corporate headquarters in Dresden, Ohio winning many baskets over the years.

Other favorite pastimes for Carolyn included oil painting, making "stampin' up" greeting cards and crafts with her own jigsaw, gardening and taking care of her family pool. She also loved to go to various casinos around the country and playing the slot machines.

Carolyn was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister. She loved spending time with her family and was very proud of all of them.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by four children, Wesley W. Arentz and wife Sherie of Needmore, Shelly C. Swope of East Berlin, Travis C. Arentz and wife Jodi of Mt. Wolf, and Brock B. Arentz and wife Crystal of Thomasville; nine grandchildren, Zackary and Jacob Arentz, Austin and Chasity Swope, Brandon and Brittany Arentz and Tianna, Alexis and Peyton Arentz; a brother, Ronald Utz, of Deerfield Beach, FL; a sister, Jo Ann Kline of Hanover; and a step-brother, Nevin Altland.

She was preceded in death by a brother, Robert E. Utz; and her stepfather, George W. Altland.

A service to celebrate the life of Mrs. Arentz will be held at 10:30 a.m. April 28, 2011 at the Wetzel Funeral Home and Crematory, Hanover, with Pastor Craig E. Arentz officiating. Burial will be in Marburg Memorial Gardens, Hanover.
