Della Jean Westfall

January 11, 1941 - September 10, 2017

 Westfall, Della Jean (Mozney), 76, of Wheeling, W.Va., passed away Sunday, September 10, 2017 after a courageous battle with cancer.

Born January 11, 1941 in Wheeling, W.Va., she was the loving daughter of the late Joseph and Helen Mozney.

She was preceded in death by her husband, James (Jim) Westfall, her sister Josephine (Mozney) Myer, her niece Jacqueline Klug and her nephew, Greg Myer.

Della is survived by her son, James (Vickie) Westfall and two grandchildren, Madison and Nolan of Wheeling; her sisters, Mary Ann (Mozney) Lokmer of Wheeling, Sandra (Mozney) (Daniel) Klug of Basye, Virginia; Carol (Mozney) Baron of Zanesville, Oh.; and her brother Jacob (Joe) (Suzy) Mozney of Wheeling; along with her endeared companion Russell McMahon, her nieces, relatives, and many friends.

Della retired from the Children’s Home of Wheeling, where she was Director of Food Service.  After retirement, she actively volunteered in several local charities, as The Soup Kitchen of Greater Wheeling, Habitat for Humanity, Marshall County Election Poll Worker; and in local activities, as on the local Sons of Italy Bocce Ball and other bowling league teams.  Della and Russ later took to the dance floors of the Ohio Valley and enjoyed cruising to many ports around the world.  She was her grandchildren’s most avid fan, endlessly attending their sports games.

She graduated from Triadelphia High School in 1958.
