Idella M. Vogelsang, 105, oldest resident of Weinberg Campus March 9, 1903 -- Feb. 10, 2009

Idella M. Vogelsang, the oldest resident of Weinberg Campus in Amherst, died Tuesday in its skilled nursing facility after a short illness. She was 105.

Mrs. Vogelsang was born Idella Schneider in Stratford, Ont., where she went to school. She married her husband, Arthur, in Brantford, Ont., in 1923; he died in 1970.

Mrs. Vogelsang worked in a knitting mill in Canada as a young woman. Later, she was a homemaker who enjoyed cooking and gardening.

Her daughter, Shirley Morgan of Williamsville, said her parents moved to Buffalo shortly after their marriage, and moved to Kenmore when she was little. In later years, they moved to Pendleton, where Mrs. Vogelsang lived until 1999, when she entered a nursing home after a series of falls at home.

Services will be held at 11 a.m. Wednesday in Lester H. Wedekindt Funeral Home, 3290 Delaware Avenue, Kenmore.
