Dorothy J Newhaller

August 2, 1927 — July 29, 2021

Dorothy (Dee) J. Newhaller (Weidenmuller), age 93, passed from this life and with great anticipation and joy entered the Kingdom of Heaven on July 29th, 2021, just 4 days short of her 94th birthday in Port Charlotte, Florida. She was born in Hackensack, New Jersey, and throughout her life, lived in Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, and Port Charlotte, Florida. She graduated from Ridgefield Park High School before spending the next 11 years working for Standard Oil (Exxon) in New York City.

In 1953, Dee, as she was known, married Charles P. Weidenmuller, and the couple had three children: Charles R. (Chip) Weidenmuller, Richard Weidenmuller (Ricky), and Barbara L. Weidenmuller (Fike). Dee was a devoted stay-at-home mother for more than two decades, after which she worked in real estate in New Jersey, prior to retiring to Florida with her husband in 1980. Dee continued working in real estate in Florida, but also returned to school where she obtained her C.N.A. License and spent several years providing care and comfort to the elderly and infirmed in Southwest Florida. She is survived by two children, Charles Weidenmuller of Long Island, NY and Barbara Fike of Estero, Florida … 6 grandchildren, Dylan Weidenmuller 29, Connor Weidenmuller 27, Paege Weidenmuller 24, and Ryder Weidenmuller 22, Amanda Fike 38, Aimee Fike 36, as well as 2 great-grandchildren, Jessica Jade 15, and one-week-old Tucker Daniel who was born 9 hours before Dee’s passing. She is also survived by her sister Johanne Molke (Aunt Honey) who still resides in High Crest Lake, New Jersey.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Daniel & Louise Newhaller, and her son Richard Weidenmuller who passed in 2001. Charles, her former husband passed away in 1999. Dee was a passionate and dedicated woman of great faith and conviction and a committed member of First Baptist Church of Port Charlotte, Florida for many years. She was also a dedicated contributor and advocate for The Salvation Army (Family Store) of Charlotte County. The family will celebrate Dee’s life in private celebrations in New York and Florida and her ashes will be shared amongst her children.

The Johnson-Taylor Funeral Home of Punta Gorda, Florida is assisting the family.
