Irma Weisenborn Obituary
Irma M. Weisenborn, of Tylersport, PA, passed away peacefully while holding her daughter’s hand on Tuesday, July 10, 2018, at the Phoebe Richland Health Care Center, Richlandtown, PA. She was 102. She was the wife of the late Paul M. Weisenborn. Born in Philadelphia, PA, she was the daughter of the late Joseph A. and Reba Frances (Schirer) Otto. From Philadelphia, the family moved for a brief time to New Jersey and from there, they moved to Almont, PA, when Irma was about four years of age. After that, her life was spent in Almont, Sellersville and Tylersport. She lived with Hazel and Mark Freeborn in Tylersport for over twenty years before going to Phoebe Richland Health Care Center in 2017. Hazel and Mark remained hopeful that she could come back home again, but that was not to be. Irma was employed as a sewing machine operator with the former Lutz Pants Factory, Sellersville, PA, in the factory and later in the home. She was a seamstress and mender for many years with the former Perkasie Cleaners, Perkasie, PA. She was a mom and homemaker and took in ironing and provided childcare for a number of young children over the years. She was a lifelong member of the Jerusalem Evangelical Lutheran Church, Sellersville (Almont), PA. Irma crocheted dishcloths, collars, afghans, doilies, scarves, etc. and a “mountain” of baby afghans of which most were donated to Grand View Hospital to be sold at their gift shop. She enjoyed reading, crossword and word puzzles, and played a highly competitive game of “Boggle”. She faithfully wrote individual letters every Sunday to Judy and the grandchildren for many years; the letters didn’t stop until her eyesight failed her. Her goodness of heart and cheerful spirit will be greatly missed. A dedicated and special mother, she helped teach her daughters to work and be honest. In keeping with the role of a good mother, she taught them to sing, bake, cook, sew, embroider and clean. Hazel admits she flunked cleaning……oh well. She is survived by a daughter, Judith L. Miller and her granddaughter Amanda J. Miller, both of Modesto, CA; her granddaughter-in-law Kristina Miller, of Modesto, CA; her daughter, Hazel and husband Mark Freeborn, of Tylersport, PA; two treasured sisters-in-law, Alice Otto and Martha Otto; and numerous nieces and nephews. In addition to her husband, Paul, and her parents, she was preceded in death by a grandson, Rod W. Miller, Jr., and her one sister and eight brothers, Joseph, Harry, Charles, John, Albert, Frank, Doris, Edward and David. Her Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 AM on Tuesday, July 17, 2018, at the Bernard Suess Funeral Home, 606 Arch Street, Perkasie, PA, where family and friends may call from 10:00 to 11:00 AM. Interment will follow in Whitemarsh Memorial Park, Prospectville, PA. www.suessfuneralhome.net
