Wava Margaret Stoll passed away in Prescott, Arizona, on May 28, 2022. She was born in Newark, New Jersey, on Jan. 23, 1932, to Frank and Margaret Jensen.

Wava was raised in New Jersey and graduated high school there. She and Ken were married in Franklin, New Jersey in 1949 and moved to Prescott in 1951 and together had three children. Wava was a stay-at-home mother until 1966. She then went to work in 1966 at Taylor Hicks Elementary School where she loved her job as secretary to the principal for 23 years, retiring in 1989. After retiring she and Ken enjoyed traveling to all but two states and traveled abroad to Italy, Germany and Sweden.

Wava enjoyed making latch-hook rugs and applique Christmas tree skirts. She enjoyed cross stitching, teaching water aerobics, putting together photo albums, puzzles, reading and was always ready to play any kind of card game available.

Her greatest joy in life was making happy memories with her children and grandchildren.

Wava was a very selfless person and spent 24 years volunteering for the YRMC. She was a life member of DAV Chapter 16 of Prescott and lifetime member to AZ PTA. She was a member of the Unity Church of Prescott and had a strong testimony of God and His love for us.

Wava lived her life to the fullest and had the ability to make long lasting friendships and was loved by many, especially her children and grandchildren. She will be missed and loved always by those that knew her. Wava is survived by her daughters Betty Ann (Rick) Bulechek Moslet and Diane Marie (David) Radcliffe, a son Kenneth (Karen) Stoll Jr., a brother Frank (Andrea) Jensen Jr., grandchildren Rebecca, Brad, Katy, Chris, Bryan, Brandon, Michael, and Khristina, and 19 great-grandchildren.
