Virginia Nadine Hartzell


Virginia Nadine Hartzell age 84 of Independence, KS and formerly of Coffeyville, KS passed away on May 29, 2019 at her home surrounded and comforted by her loved ones.

 

Virginia was born in Coffeyville on April 5, 1935 the next to youngest of 14 to Robert and Maggie (Bradshaw) Miller. She attended and graduated from Cedar Bluff School. She met Carl Hartzell and the couple was united in marriage on April 29, 1963 in Miami, OK. The couple was blessed with a son and a daughter and Virginia gained 3 sons from this union. She took pride in raising her children and caring for the home. Something that came as second nature to Virginia was caring for others and always putting their needs as top priority. Once the children were older she went to work at Emmerson where she devoted over 22 years of dedicated service. In her retirement, not being one to sit around she found employment at Burger King and then Chartwell’s Cafeteria at Coffeyville Community College where some of the toughest football and basketball boys adored her and call her grandma and she loved them back. Virginia loved her family and took every opportunity she could to spend her time with them. She also loved spending time in her gardens; she raised some produce that was out of this world and some of the most beautiful flower beds. What bounty she didn’t share with friends or family she would can in order to prepare a great tasting dish long into the winter. Any spare time her and Carl had they were off traveling the United States in their travel tailor or pulling it down to Branson to enjoy the sights and shows.

 

Virginia’s memories will live on with her daughter, Carla Andres her husband Danny, step-sons, David Hartzell, Jewell Hartzell his wife Vicki and Forrest Hartzell his wife Judy, sister, Judy Hartzell, and several grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

 

She now rests with her parents, her husband Carl, son James Hartzell, brothers Tommy and Roy Miller, sisters, Aileen King, Geneva Russell, Bonnie Despaw, Dora Russell, and Donna Sollman.

Nina was the kind of person that loved to care for others but wasn’t good at allowing others to do for her.  She loved to show her love by baking your favorite pie, cake, cookies or a meal for you.  You couldn't stop by for just a quick hello; she always wanted to share a cup of coffee and a baked good that she had prepared just in case someone stopped by to visit.  She loved to go out to eat and to go shopping, looking for the perfect bargain that she was really good at finding.  Nina always took great pride in her appearance and caring for her things.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Herschel of 50 years, her parents, sister, Goldie Wall and nephew, Darrel Arnold.

 

Nina moved to Coffeyville to be near Darrel and his family after her health declined, she never accepted it as home but enjoyed being able to see all of them more.  She tried to be content but always wished to go "Home".  The family welcomes you to share in the celebration of her life on Monday, May 20, 2019 at 1:00 pm at the First Christian Church located at 913 Maple, Chetopa, Kansas with Pastor Terry Robison officiating.  The family will receive friends on Sunday, May 19, 2019 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm also at the church.  Services will be under the direction of Ford-Wulf-Bruns Chapel of Coffeyville.   Nina will be laid to rest next to her parents and loving husband, at the Oak Hill Cemetery in Chetopa.  The family request memorial contributions be made payable to Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice or Chetopa First Christian Church and may be left in care of the chapel.  To leave a message of condolence for the family visit www.fordwulfbrunschapel.com

Alberto Cortez Sanchez


Alberto Cortez Sanchez, 46, of Coffeyville, Kansas passed away at his home surrounded by his loving family.

 

Alberto was born on April 27, 1973 in Mexico City, Mexico to Santiago Cortez de la Riva and Maria Dolores Sanchez Rodriguez.  He grew up in Mexico City where he attended local schools.

 

In 1997 he moved to Illinois where he resided for four year then moved to Coffeyville, Kansas to be with family.

 

On November 19, 2005 he was united in marriage to Jennifer Ann Aldridge at the Central Church of the Nazarene in Coffeyville.  The couple has made Coffeyville their home where they have been raising their children.  He worked most recently for Cobalt Boats in Neodesha, Kansas.

 

He is remembered as the life of the party.  You could always find him cooking in the kitchen, singing and dancing around making his famous carnitas.  He enjoyed many gatherings with family and friends where they could play music and sing and dance together.  His happiness and humor were contagious to all those around him.  He loved his family and looked forward to having movie nights together.

 

Alberto was a mechanic.  All the people in the community knew he was the man to find when it came to working on their cars.  He was an extremely hard worker.  The family said even when doctors recommended he stop working, Alberto pushed on until his very last days.  That was the kind of man he was, a provider and hard worker.

 

He is survived by his wife, Jennifer Cortez of the home; children, Jalisica Rivera, Alberto Cortez, Jr., Mariana Cortez all of Coffeyville, Kansas; his mother, Dolores Sanchez Rodriguez of Mexico; best friend and brother, Israel Cortez Sanchez; sisters, Veronica Cortez, Araceli Cortez, Nancy Cortez. 

 

Following Alberto’s wishes, cremation has taken place.

 

A Rosary Vigil Service will be held at 2:00 p.m. Thursday, May 2nd with Mass of Christian Burial directly following at Holy Name Catholic Church.  Private family inurnment will take place at a later date.
