Merl Ray “Blue” Sensenig, 90, of Wichita, Kansas, formerly of Lancaster County, passed away Wednesday, June 11, 2014, at the Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice Center in Wichita.
He was born in Martindale to the late Clayton and Cora (Hoover) Sensenig.
Merl was a U.S. Army Veteran of WWII. He enjoyed gardening, swimming, cooking, and baking, and was a Jack of all trades. In the earlier years, Merl was employed at the Ephrata Shoe Factory. He later worked as an upholsterer for the Boeing Corp. in Wichita, from where he retired.

He was preceded in death by his four brothers: Aaron, Luke, Paul, and Clayton Sensenig; and four sisters: Cora Ludwig, Sadie Beck, Irene Weise, and Amanda Ernst.
Services will be private at the convenience of the family. Interment will take place in the Pleasant View Cemetery, Sinking Spring.
