Helen Schnure Harter, 98, Mifflinburg

MIFFLINBURG — Helen Schnure Harter, 98, of Mifflinburg, entered into eternal glory at 8:28 p.m. Saturday, July 27, 2013, at Rolling Hills Manor, Millmont, where she had been a resident since 1999.

She was born on Jan. 7, 1915, in Swengel, the daughter of the late Clarence Christian and Grace (Witmer) Schnure, but she was raised by her aunt and uncle, Ernest and Helen Ruhl, of Millmont.

She was a 1931 graduate of Mifflinburg High School and went on to work at the Millmont post office. On Nov. 13, 1937, she married Wilmer O. “Red” Harter, and they remained residents of Mifflinburg until Red’s death on July 29, 1993.

Helen was employed at various times in part-time positions at the Mifflinburg A&P, Gramley’s Store, Evans Department Store, Ben Franklin store and several family businesses, including The Mifflinburg Telegraph, but her primary joy was spending time with family and friends. She frequently visited with friends in their homes, nursing homes and earlier at George’s Lunch Bar in Mifflinburg. Helen loved to cook and to share her meals with others.

Helen’s first priority was her relationship with the Lord, and she spent much time in her latter years reading the Bible and praying for others around the world. She was known for her generosity to those in need. “Godliness with contentment” could be her trademark.

She was a member of First Evangelical Lutheran Church in Mifflinburg for more than 75 years, formerly taught Sunday school and belonged to the David Dagle Missionary Society.

Surviving are one son and daughter-in-law, Harry H. and Diane L. Harter, of Mifflinburg; two stepgrandchildren, Jeffrey McClintock, of Mifflinburg, and Tamy Oberdorf, of Lafayette, Ky.; five great-grandchildren; and one great-great-grandson.

She was preceded in death by two brothers, Kenneth and Keith Schnure.

Family and friends are invited to the viewing from 9 to 10 a.m. Thursday at First Evangelical Lutheran Church, 404 Market St., Mifflinburg, where the funeral will be conducted at 10 with the Rev. Peter S. Bergstresser officiating.

Interment will be in Hartleton Cemetery.

In lieu of flowers, contributions in Helen’s memory may be made to the Memorial Fund of First Evangelical Lutheran Church, 404 Market St., Mifflinburg, PA 17844, or to Gideon’s International, P.O. Box 1081, Williamsport, PA 17703-1081.

Funeral arrangements are by the Dominick T. Adamo Funeral Home, 247 Chestnut St., Mifflinburg.
