Wendell Larrington

CHARITON — Wendell Keith Larrington, 91, entered Heaven’s Gates on June 9, 2013, surrounded by his loving wife and family at the Legacy Lodge Hospice House in Chariton.

Wendell was born Sept. 5, 1921, in Lucas County to Leslie and Beulah Larrington. He attended country school and graduated from Chariton High School in 1937.

In 1943, Wendell married Lorraine Evelyn Day of Russell. To this union were born four children, Larry W. Larrington (Cleta) of Bloomfield, Roger L. Larrington (Connie) of Chariton, Linda M. Walker (Marvin) of Winterset and Harold L. Larrington (Holly) of Dayton.

Over the years, Wendell was active in his church, serving as Sunday School teacher, youth leader, church board and usher. He also sat on the Lucas County Board of Review and was a 4-H leader for 10 years.

One of Wendell’s greatest joys was time with his family. His Christian witness and walk the with Lord created a legacy that has had a definite influence on his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Wendell was a gentle man, loving husband and wonderful dad. He was the rock in his family’s lives.

Wendell is survived by his wife, four children and their spouses, 12 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren; one brother, Verland Larrington (Jessie) of Chariton; and two sisters, Beverly Shannon of Texas and Barbara Heisrodt of Arizona.
