Anna Katherine “Oma” Mueller of Wake Forest, North Carolina passed from this life on October 13, 2021. Born in Heidelberg, Germany to Josef Alois Schroll and Elizabeth Mertel, she was 82 years old and is survived by her children Chriss Guadagno and his wife Joann, Joseph Guadagno and his wife Christine Stewart, and Lisa Jett and her husband Chris and grandchildren Nicole Tarplee, Olivia Guadagno, Lauren Guadagno, Grant Stewart, Perry Jett, and Eric Jett.
Despite being born at the outset of World War II, with her formative years shaped by the hardships of worn torn Germany, she persevered through many challenges in life yet committed herself to raising three wonderful children and a loving family—Oma’s Legacy.
Oma was warm, loved hugs, and never knew a stranger. She loved her family and friends with the heart of a servant and her mastery of the culinary arts, which brought great joy to her and to all who had the honor of knowing and loving her.
A visitation will be held on Sunday, October 17, 2021, from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM, followed by a memorial service from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM at the Bright Funeral Home, 405 S. Main Street, Wake Forest, NC, 27587.
