Christel A. Carr, 44, Sunbury

— SUNBURY — Christel A. Carr, 44, of Sunbury, passed away on Saturday, Dec. 14, 2013, in the Geisinger Medical Center, Danville.

She was born Nov. 28, 1969, in Sunbury, the daughter of Sandra (Reitz) Carr, of Sunbury and the late Harold Carr.

Christel was a 1988 graduate of Shikellamy High School. After high school Christel attended Empire Beauty School but was unable to obtain her cosmetology license and later attended McCann School of Business and Technology in Sunbury and graduated with an associate’s degree in accounting.

Her most recent work was at NHS Human Services and during her life she worked in many different areas of careers from retail, to medical as well as self employment. She enjoyed playing games online and was a collector of many things, especially cats and gingerbread men. From family and friends to people she just talked with online, Christel was always a huge support system for everyone about anything at anytime.

Christel was a member of the Trinity Wesleyn Church in Sunbury with its new pastor Tim Moore, who will be leading the memorial service. She had a personal journal where she had written her prayers in to the Lord at least once a week. Her favorite bible verse was John 3:16, “For God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believeth in him shall not perish but have everlasting life”.

In addition to her mother Sandra Carr, she is survived by her husband, George Wertz, of Sunbury; three children, Amanda Carr and Tyler Wertz, of Sunbury and Kyle Carr, of Sheppard, Texas; a grandson, Blake Rising; three brothers, John Reitz, Russel and Howie Kessel, of Sunbury; her mother- and father-in-law, Dennis and Effie Wertz; great-mother-in-law, Ruth Heffner; two brothers-in-law, Clifford and Dennis Wertz; and three sisters-in-law, Angela Wertz, Michelle Harris and Lynn Courtney.

She was preceded in death by two sisters, Angela and Nicole Carr; her father, Harold Carr; and her grandmother, Louella Reitz.

Friends will be received from 3 to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Jerre Wirt Blank Funeral Home, 309 Water St., Northumberland, followed by a memorial service at 4.

A dinner will follow at 5 p.m. in Trinity Wesleyan Church, Walnut Street, Sunbury.
