Thelma June Moenter, 90

— Thelma June Moenter, 90, Batesville, died Saturday, Jan. 26, 2013, at Kindred Hospital, Indianapolis.

Born June 8, 1922, in Batesville, she was the daughter of Ethel (Schultz) and John Wernke. She married Herbert Moenter June 30, 1945, at St. Louis Catholic Church. They celebrated their 67th wedding anniversary last June. He preceded her in death Oct. 14, 2012.

June worked for 40 years as a medical secretary in Batesville at Margaret Mary Hospital as well as helping Drs.  Paras, Jaojoco, Glaser and Hansen. She was the organist for St. Anthony’s Catholic Church, Morris, for 27 years and gave unselfishly of her time to provide beautiful music at church services, weddings and funerals.

June was a member of the Batesville Business and Professional Women, Batesville Women’s Study Club, Knights of St. John Ladies Auxiliary, St. Louis Catholic Church and St. Louis Ladies Society.

Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren brought her the greatest joy. She had a way of making each one of them feel special. She enjoyed watching basketball and baseball, especially when the Pacers and Reds were on television. June celebrated her 90th birthday by attending a Pacers game and pregame shootaround and having photos taken with her favorite players. Her favorite pastimes were reading and working the daily crossword puzzle.

She is survived by daughter and son-in-law Brenda and Jeff Moorman, Avon; sons and daughter-in-laws Ron and Debbie Moenter, Shelbyville, Eric and Kim Moenter and Keith and Christy Moenter, Batesville, and Kurt Moenter, Beech Grove; sister-in-law Romilda Moenter; nine grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Geraldine Kaiser.

Visitation is Wednesday, Jan. 30, from 4-7 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home. Funeral services are at 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 31, at St. Louis Catholic Church with her nephew, the Rev. Alan Hirt, OFM, officiating. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

The family requests memorials to the June and Herb Moenter Music Scholarship Fund or Batesville Beautification League.
