Charlotte B. Cheesman, 95, Sunbury

— SUNBURY — Charlotte B. Cheesman, 95, of Sunbury, went to be with her Lord on Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014, in Evangelical Community Hospital, Lewisburg.

A native of South Williamsport, she was born March 16, 1918, a daughter of the late William and Minnie Beisel. She was married to Paul Edward Cheesman Sr. who preceded her in death.

Charlotte was employed as a telephone operator for Bell Telephone for several years. After raising her three children, she worked for Sears and Roebuch as a purchase order clerk for 10 years.

She was very active in the Order of Eastern Star. She was  a Worthy Matron for Williamsport Chapter 321 and served as District Deputy Grand Matron, and enjoyed many activities with her fellow Matrons.

She and her husband, Paul, took many trips abroad, enjoying trips to England, Switzerland, Brazil, Germany and especially a ride on a camel in the Canary Islands. Charlotte was an avid reader and accumulated many books and donated her vast collection to various libraries for the enjoyment of others.

Charlotte always made others feel comfortable and welcome in her home and in her presence. It was her gift to all of us. Her family and home were always very important to her. She worked with many charities and was very involved in her community and church. Gram was in every sense of the work, an encourager. Whether by letter, phone call or kind deed, she conveyed her love and gave hope and support to others in good times and times of challenge. She truly lived by the words on her kitchen plaque “The way to have a friend is to be one”. Rest in peace, Dear One.

She is survived by one daughter and son-in-law, Judy and Jim Wise; one son and daughter-in-law, Paul and Kathryn Cheesman Jr.; grandchildren and their spouses, Jim and Karen Wise, Michael and Allyson Wise, Karen Macedo, Kim and Jessiah Fleet, Paul and Heather Cheesman III, Deborah and James Doyle, Alison and Michael War, Jason and Glynda Smith, Ashley and Todd Higginson; great-grandchildren, Joseph Wise, Maddy beech, Sebastian Wise, Daniel Macedo, Samuel Fleet, Alex and Brandon Cheesman, Hunter and Peyton Doyle, Michaela and Watts Ward, Logan and Liam smith and Kyle and Natalie Higginson.

She was preceded in death by one daughter, Sandra Sturm; and three brothers, William, Daniel Lloyd and Frank Beisel.

Many thanks to the staff of the Manor at Penn Village who treated Charlotte with respect and love in her final years. Special appreciation to Yvonne Lenhard, Nancy Frymoyer, Dawn Clark and Jessica Hockenberg.

The funeral service will be private.

Her interment will be held at Schenk Cemetery, Howard at a later date.

Arrangements are by the Jerre Wirt Blank Funeral Home, 395 State St., Sunbury.
