June 19, 1997 - June 7, 2021
Vanessa Faye Wodtli was taken too soon and went to be with the angels on Monday, June 7, 2021.
She was born on June 19, 1997 in Lebanon, Oregon, to Derrick Wodtli and Kelly Hess.
Ever the tomboy, Vanessa enjoyed riding quads with her family and friends, hanging out with family and driving around listening to music with her beloved German shepherd, Ava.
Vanessa had just passed her six-month probation at Weyerhaeuser Santiam and was SO proud to have earned her "orange hat." She had plans to buy her own home by herself and start her life...
That amazing smile is what everyone remembers about Vanessa and the world will be a little darker without her in it.
Never one to judge people, she loved with everything she had.
Vanessa leaves behind her dad Derrick and wife Mendy Wodtli and siblings Owen and Ella, mom Kelly Hess and husband Clint, brother Kyle and his wife Mikaela and nephews Otto and Zeplin. She joins her nephew, Ryker in Heaven.
She had many friends and family who all loved her so much and will miss her dearly.
Donations in Vanessa's name can be made to SafeHaven Humane Society and will be much appreciated!
