Carol A. Wertz of Altoona was released from her earthly bonds and was ushered into Glory on Saturday, April 18, 2020 at Garvey Manor. She was born in Altoona on December 13, 1938 to Margaret (Abdallah) and Elwood Wertz. Carol graduated from Altoona Area High School in 1956 and from Wheaton College in 1960. She went on to teach physical education at Hollidaysburg Area High School and later at Temple University in Philadelphia where she obtained a Master’s Degree. Carol spent many years working as a medical biller in the office of her brother, Dr. Robert Wertz. She is survived by her brother and his wife Patricia as well as four nieces and nephews: Vicki Wertz, Richard Wertz, Robert Wertz and Rebecca Charles and seven great nieces and nephews: Ryan Wertz, Ellen Wertz, Anna Charles, Andrew Charles, Sophia Wertz, Samuel Wertz and Nathaniel Wertz. Carol spent the last few years of her life as a resident at Garvey Manor where she was cared for by a loyal group of companions: Leslie, Pam, Karen, Anita and Kate who became a second family to her.

Carol loved to laugh and have fun. Her faith in the Lord was unwavering throughout her life and her salvation is assured. A private memorial service is planned for a later date. Memorial gifts in memory of Carol may be made to: Wheaton College Advancement, 501 College Avenue, Wheaton, IL. Arrangements are by The Good Funeral Home Inc., Altoona, PA
