Northborough – Sylvia D. (Bloch) Wiedergott, 84, of Northborough and formerly a longtime resident of Southborough, died Nov. 1, 2018 at UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester. She was the beloved wife of the late William A. “Fritz” Wiedergott Jr., who passed away in 2017.
Born in Allentown, Pa., Sylvia graduated from Allentown High School. Following graduation, she worked a number of years at Bell Telephone until deciding to marry the love of her life, moving to be with him as he completed his degree at Springfield College. Their marriage would last 60 years.
In 1958, Sylvia and Fritz moved to Southborough, where for the next 40 years they found their true home at St. Mark’s School. During her years there, when not raising six children, Sylvia cheered – quite loudly! – for her husband’s athletic teams, and spent nine years working in the business office.
She took up skeet shooting, worked as the secretary for the Massachusetts Skeet Shooting Association, was a terrific bowler, a voracious reader, enjoyed puzzling, and passionately supported the Patriots, FC Barcelona, and her beloved “boys” the Boston Red Sox, never missing a game. She lived long enough to see them win their most recent World Series.
She is survived by her children, Anita-Marie Edwardsen, Teresa Wiedergott-Wilson and husband Steve, William A. Wiedergott III, Karl Wiedergott, and Heather Cartier and husband Roland; her five grandchildren, Kristine Hart and husband Travis, Kelly Edwardsen, Ryan and Hannah Wilson, and Chace Cartier; and her siblings, Arthur Bloch and Jane (Bloch) Brinker. She was predeceased by her daughter, Heidi Wiedergott.
A service will be held Sunday, Nov. 11, at 1 p.m., at the Belmont Chapel, St. Mark’s School, 25 Marlborough Rd., Southborough.
In lieu of flowers, a contribution can be made in her honor to the Jimmy Fund (www.jimmyfund.org).
