Obituary of Shirley A. Witmer
Shirley A. Werner Witmer, 80, of Hershey, passed away Saturday, December 30, 2017, in the Masonic Village, Elizabethtown, with her family by her side.
Born in Fredericksburg on June 10, 1937, she was the daughter of the late Harold and Lottie Kleinfelter Werner.
She was a 1955 graduate of Northern Lebanon High School and 1959 graduate of Mansfield Teacher’s College with degree in Education. She was an active member in numerous organizations, most notably the International Farm Youth Exchange(IFYE) organization, the Future Homemakers of America(FHA) organization, and the Home Economics Association. Shirley enjoyed teaching home economics for 30 years, spending the majority of those years in the Lower Dauphin School District, Hummelstown. Upon retirement, she fulfilled a lifelong dream to run a bed and breakfast when she and Dave established the Main Street Inn, Palmyra. She was a longtime member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church in Hummelstown and worshipped and served there over many years. She especially loved spending time with her family, antiquing, traveling and working outside in the gardens with her husband.
Shirley is survived by her loving husband, David E. Witmer; two daughters, Jodi L. Muscalus wife of Robert S. and Jane E. Lockwood wife of Ronald D. both of Hummelstown; four siblings, Janice Hartman wife of Joseph of Cleona, Lynn Werner husband of Kitty of Jonestown, Larry Werner of Cleona, and Connie Amendola wife of Chuck of St. Mary’s; and five grandchildren, Ashley Riehl wife of Joshua, Lindsay Lockwood, Alexandra Muscalus, David Muscalus, and Emily Lockwood.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by three siblings, Irene Darkes, Eleanor Weller, and Gene Werner.
A memorial service will be held Saturday, January 6, 2018, at 12 Noon in St. Paul's Lutheran Church, 850 Hill Church Road, Hummelstown, with The Rev. George M. Minick, her pastor, officiating. Visitation will be held in the church on Saturday from 10:30 AM until time of the service.
Trefz & Bowser Funeral Home, Inc., 114 West Main Street, Hummelstown, is handling the arrangements.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Shirley’s name to her church.
