Both helped her to never give up and to deal with the physical struggles she faced after a devastating stroke in 1988. Even though she spent the last 12 years living in New York, she always fondly remembered Blossburg and the people there and wished to return home. Her wish has been finally granted for she will be laid to rest in Arbon Cemetery. The family wish to thank the staff at Elizabeth Church Manor in Binghamton, NY for their kind and compassionate care while she was a resident. A special thanks also goes to Carol Jake, a friend and caregiver. Viewing will be Friday, August 24th at the Freeberg Funeral Home, North Williamson Road in Blossburg from 5-8PM.
