Sarah's Story

Text size

Sarah E. Mohr, 95, of Potts Grove, formerly of Danville, went to be with her Lord on Monday, Feb. 26, 2018, at the Geisinger Medical Center.

Sarah was born on the family farm in West Hemlock Township on May 15, 1922, the daughter of the late Joseph M. and Ida M. (Menges) Mohr.

She attended Sheeps One Room School in West Hemlock Township until the eighth grade. She worked on the family farm until 1943 when she went to work at Bloomsburg Mills where she was employed until her retirement in 1987.

She was a faithful member of Trinity United Church of Christ, Strawberry Ridge and a member of the Danville Women's Club.

Sarah especially enjoyed family gatherings, picnics, and traveling on bus trips with the former Rambler's Club. On quiet days she discovered a love for reading novels and doing word searches.

She is survived by several nieces and nephews.

Preceding her in death were her siblings, Bryon Mohr, Emma "Jenny" (Mohr) Foust, Dorothy (Mohr) Flora Billhime, Franklin Mohr, Hanna (Mohr) Lobach, Willard "Bud" Mohr Flora and Grant Mohr.

In keeping with Sarah's wishes, a graveside service was held in the Turbotville Cemetery.

Flowers were provided by her family and they suggest contributions in her memory be made to Trinity United Church of Christ/Strawberry Ridge, 850 Cardinal Road, Danville, PA 17821.

Arrangements were entrusted to Brooks Funeral Home, Turbotville. www.wfbrooksfuneralhome.com
