Charles Suding, 94

Charles B. Suding, 94, Batesville, died Sunday, July 14, 2013, at his residence.

Born Feb. 12, 1919, in New Point, he was the son of Veronica (Walke) and Joseph Suding.

He married Virginia Voegele July 30, 1949, at St. Louis Catholic Church. The farmer also worked as an upholsterer at the former Romweber Co. for over 35 years before retiring in 1983.

According to his family, Charlie was easygoing, always had a smile on his face and liked to laugh and be around people. The annual church picnic was a favorite event, giving him the chance to catch up with friends he hadn't seen for a while, and the porch swing in his breezeway at home also provided the perfect gathering spot to enjoy family and friends. It was also ideal for a cup of coffee, bird watching and the company of his beloved Queenie, a Welsh corgi.

Charlie had a love for the outdoors, so naturally, that's where many of his interests took him. He was a long-time deer hunter and could often be found fishing at his son's pond. He also liked to mushroom hunt and water-ski. For years he had a boat and taught each of the kids how to ski. Other hobbies included wine making and refinishing antiques. He spent nearly 90 years on the family farm and in later years would get around on the property in an old golf cart.

He is survived by his wife; daughters and sons-in-law Cindy Schebler, Anchorage, Alaska, Nancy and Keith Hull, Palmer, Alaska, Charlene and Steve Dallas, Batesville, and Rita Suding, Batesville; son Dwight Suding, Batesville; nine grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by sisters Marie Benton, Josephine Wissel, Matilda Starke and Anna Beuke and brothers Joseph, Herman "Hank" and Edward Suding.

Visitation is Thursday, July 18, from 4-7 p.m. with a rosary service at 4 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services are at 10:30 a.m. Friday, July 19, at St. Louis Church with the Rev. Randy Summers officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

The family requests memorials to Hospice of Margaret Mary Health or the American Heart Association.
