CENTRALIA — Carl T. Womer, 90, of 102 E. Wood St., died at 7:55 p.m. Saturday, May 24, 2014, at the Columbia Montour Hospice at Maria Hall, Danville, where he was a guest for five days. He was in failing health for several months.

He was born in Aristes, Aug. 15, 1923, a son of the late John and Katie (Fetterman) Womer. Carl resided in Centralia for much of his life.

He was a 1941 graduate of the former Conyngham High School and also attended the Williamsport Technical school where he majored in the machine shop program.

Carl served with the U.S. Army during World War II, participating in the Central Europe and Rhineland campaigns as a member of the 274th Infantry of the 70th Division. He attained the rank of staff sergeant during his service.

Carl was employed by Rockwell Industries in Reading as a machinist for more than 25 years before retiring in 1987.

His family was the most important part of his life, and he also loved the outdoors, especially trees and flowers.

Womer and his wife, Cindy, of Bloomsburg; nine grandchildren; 13 great-grandchildren, and a niece and nephew. He was the last of his immediate family.

Carl was a kind and loving man I've never known anyone else so willing to give the shirt off his back to help someone he's been missed each day but he's in a better place.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I have found memories of him as he lived close to my great aunts and uncles, The Maddens. My mother, sister and I had the pleasure of talking with him a few years ago. Centralia will not be the same without him. Thinking of you at this difficult time.
