Orlena Bingham, age 94, of Wauseon, passed away on Monday, November 17, 2014 at Fulton Manor in Wauseon. It was a sad yet happy day when we said our final good-byes to Orlena/Mom. It was sad because we will miss her so much, but happy because she is having a grand reunion with all of the dear ones who have gone before.
Orlena was born in Dewitt, Kentucky on June 5, 1920, the daughter of William and Sudie (Broughton) Brewer. She had worked for and retired from Fulton Tubing in Archbold. She was a member of the First Church of God in Wauseon.
Surviving are her children, Donna (Ron) Bliss of Wauseon, Earnie (Barb) Bingham of Wauseon, Curt (Julia) Bingham of Defiance, Barry (Nina) Bingham of Defiance, Elizabeth (Fred) Keezer of Wauseon, Rick (Marian) Bingham of Wauseon, Teena Fenton of Wauseon and Terry Bingham of Bryan. She is also survived by 21 grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren; and sister, Dora Carnes of Corbin, Kentucky. She was preceded in death by her daughter, Nancy Wierauch; two brothers, Reed Brewer and Emmitt Brewer, and her parents.
