Alice Wahlenmaier Cullers

May 18, 1934 ‒ March 10, 2020

Mount Vernon, Ohio

Alice Wahlenmaier Cullers of Mount Vernon peacefully passed away on March 10, 2020 at 11:05 pm in the presence of her loving family. She was born May 18, 1934 in Columbus to the late George and Catherine (Simpson) Wahlenmaier.

Alice attended St. Mary of the Springs Academy and graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor’s degree in Home Economics. She was a loving and fierce mother who was devoted to her family. One of her greatest joys in life was seeing her children and grandchildren gathered around the dining room table breaking bread with each other. It was around this table she shared her values, taught listening skills, fostered deep conversations and modeled impeccable manners. Alice was a faithful member of St. Vincent DePaul Catholic Church. She happily and openly shared her love of God and encouraged her children and grandchildren on their own paths. She was a savvy money manager and was proud to send her three children to college on her stock earnings. Alice was a card shark and loved bridge, poker and any game that gathered people around a table for laughter and fun. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

Alice is survived by her children, Mike (Kimber) Cullers of Mount Vernon, Carolyn (John) Butler of Columbus, Sharon Collaros of Worthington; grandchildren, Hanna (Cullers) Ford, Allison (Delp) Coyle, Leah Delp, Emily Delp, Maria Collaros, Sophia Collaros and Zoe Collaros; great grandson Meeko Rodrigeuz.

In addition to her parents, Alice was preceded in death by her husband, James J. Cullers as well as her sisters Louise Webb and Kathryn (Jack) Wallace as well as her son in law Chris Collaros.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10 a.m. on Monday, March 16th at St. Vincent de Paul Catholic Church with Rev. Father Mark J. Hammond as the Celebrant. Alice will be laid to rest beside her beloved husband, Jim, in Mount Calvary Cemetery in Mount Vernon.

The family extends deep gratitude to all of her caregivers at Sunrise of Dublin and Capital City Hospice for all their love, support and comfort.

Memorial contributions may be made to Hospice of Knox County.
