Wendy Lee (Druga) Shiflet

  • On April 6, 2020

Wendy Lee (Druga) Shiflet, age 67, of Charleroi, PA, previously of Southview PA, passed away in her home surrounded by her immediate family on April 4, 2020 after her battle with cancer. She was born August 1, 1952 to Andrew and Dorothy Druga. She married her lifelong love on September 20, 1975 and welcomed her two children in the early 1980’s.

From the moment we enter this world until the moment we leave it, our time is filled with the journey called life. A journey that Wendy never took for granted and made sure she filled with laughter, love, friendship, and worship.

Wendy was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother to her family and steadfast child of the Lord. She was always more than happy to share photos and stories of her children and grandchild with friends. She was happiest when she was surrounded by her friends and family including her church family.

For many years Wendy worked as a Teacher’s Aide with the Intermediate Unit helping youth navigate the challenges of primary school. Wendy will be remembered for her kindness, her willingness to help her friends and family, her dedication to her church family, her pleasant and fun demeanor, and her undying commitment to motherhood and the Lord. Wendy was always happy to open her house and her kitchen to her friends and her children’s friends. She leaves many behind with happy memories of time spent in her presence.

She is survived by her husband Dennis Shiflet, Sr.; daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter Lindsey, Brian, and Lena Zarecky; son and fiancé Dennis Shiflet, Jr. and Valerie Higinbotham; mother Dorothy Druga; sister and brother-in-law Linda and Bob Feathers; brother and sister-in-law Andrew Druga and Shari McCullough; nephew and wife Mike and Megan Feathers; brother-in-law and wife Tom and Ann Shiflet; and niece Teresa Gamble; and loving friends Don and Rose Keefer; and aunts Ann DeBlander and Louise Sell. She is preceded in death by her father Andrew Druga.

Wendy’s celebration of life will take place on the anniversary of her passing, April 2021 at Speers United Methodist Church.  Memorial gifts may be made to the Speers United Methodist Church, 810 Jane Ave, Charleroi, PA 15022.

I was so very sorry to hear of Wendy's passing. We went all through school together and even rode the school bus together! After many years passed, we found ourselves together at the Claysville Auction sitting together and laughing at what people would buy (yes, you Denny!). She truly was a gentle soul and so very happy and proud to have a granddaughter! Rest in Peace, dear friend.

Wendy was my friend forever but we were more like sisters. We grew up together and shared so many good times and was there for each other through some sad times. She was always so fun to be around and constantly made me laugh. I miss her already but I know that we will meet again at those pearly gates and I can hear her asking me with a laugh, "What took you so long". All of her family are in my prayers. Love you Wen.
