Obituary

Obituary for Sidney "Wayne" Mong Jr.

Sidney “Wayne” Mong Jr. died unexpectedly at home on June 21, 2019 in Martinsburg, WV at the age of 68.

Wayne is survived by his wife Roberta “Robbie” Mong (Diehl) of almost 50 years, his three children, son Kurt Mong (wife Christy) of Martinsburg, daughter Rhonda Shade (husband Travis) of Gerrardstown, and daughter Kris Knott (husband Luke) of Martinsburg. Seven grandchildren, Taylor Nedrow (husband Nick), Heather Shade, Jonathan Shade, Kody Mong, Brett Mong, Cooper Knott, and Paige Knott. Three siblings Vickie Updegraff (husband Jim) of Cascade, MD, Gary Mong (partner Crystal) of Falling Waters, WV, and Donnie Mong of Hagerstown MD. Brother-in-law Sam Winters of Smithsburg, MD. and in-laws Bob and Beulah Diehl of Ringgold, MD and countless nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Wayne was preceded in death by his parents Sidney and Charlotte Mong of Smithsburg, MD. Sister Barb Winters of Smithsburg, MD and nephew DJ Mong of Hagerstown, MD.

Wayne was born on September 4, 1950 in Waynesboro, PA to Sidney and Charlotte Reed Mong. He grew up on his family’s farm near Waynesboro, PA and Smithsburg, MD. He graduated from Smithsburg High School in 1968. He married Roberta “Robbie” Diehl in 1969. After graduating high school, he was employed at Grove Manufacturing as a welder until he was able to make his love for farming a full-time career. After several years of managing a dairy farm in Ringgold, MD, Wayne and Robbie purchased their dream farm along the Opequon Creek near Martinsburg,WV in 1977 with their 3 children. Rolling Acres Farm in WV became their new home. For him farming was a family affair. All 3 children grew up helping on the dairy farm. His theory was “learn by doing”, so that’s what the kids had to do. They learned hard work by example, Wayne was no stranger to hard work and his kids learned that quickly. His children remember him as a kind, gentle, driven and big-hearted father, who encouraged them to do their best and pursue their goals.

Wayne was an accomplished farmer and business owner and one of the most generous persons you would ever meet. To those who didn’t know him, were frightened by his stature, to those who did, knew him as a teddy bear! Wayne was a quiet, kind-hearted soul, and his grandkids were the center of his world. He always put his family first and himself second. He loved farming and his Holstein cows and couldn’t wait to get on the tractor to plant the corn or bale hay.

A memorial service is scheduled for Friday June 28th at 10AM at Brown Funeral Home in Martinsburg WV, with a reception to follow. Pastor John Herbst will officiate the ceremony. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Wayne’s life. In lieu of flowers, please send donations to Ringgold Church of Christ at 14420 Barkdoll Rd, Hagerstown, MD 21742.

Robbi and family, so sorry to hear of Wayne's passing. It's such a big loss for all of you. Deepest sympathy. Haven't seen Wayne since high school but, like all the kids we grew up with in Ringgold, he will always feel like extended family to me. Wayne was easily one of the nicest guys I ever met and he will be missed by everyone who knew him.
