Noted For Her Flower Gardens, Cookies

Madeline B. Wenck

ONEONTA – Madeline B. Wenck, 96, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, Aug. 8, 2017 at the Chestnut Park Nursing Home, happily walking into the loving arms of her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

Madeline was born June 17, 1921, on Pumpkin Hollow Road in Davenport, the daughter of Luther and Marjorie (Davidson) Burdick.

She married Gerald F. Wenck on June 18, 1941, in Oneonta, stating over and over that he was the most handsome man she had ever met; one with absolutely beautiful sky-blue eyes.   As their family grew, and more space was needed, they moved out of the city and into a home in the county.  Gerald built the house one room at a time and Madeline became famous for the large flower gardens that decorated the property.
