Tralene “Tra” Wiechers, 65, of Napoleon, Ohio, passed away on Dec. 20, 2019, surrounded by family. She was born on Oct. 10, 1954, in Havre, Montana. On June 5, 1981 she married Keith Wiechers.
Tra was very active in the Fulton County Relay for Life, having served as the Luminaria Chair for 15 years and the 2018 Honorary Chair. She enjoyed RV trips out west with Keith and the grandchildren.
She devoted most of her free time to scrapbooking, annual birthday shopping with the grandkids, annual Frankenmuth Christmas shopping with the extended family, and cheering on her grandchildren at their numerous sporting events.
She had a way of making every holiday party all about the grandkids and made sure they knew just how important they were to her. She never knew a stranger and her human kindness was truly overflowing.
