Elnora A. Geise, 96, Northumberland

NORTHUMBERLAND — Elnora A. Geise, 96, formerly of Point Township, went to be with her Lord and Savior at 12:20 p.m. Friday, Oct. 5, 2012, at Nottingham Village, Northumberland where she had lived since February 2010.

She was born Oct. 1, 1916, in Delmar, Del., a daughter of the late John W. and Emma (Eister) Furman. On March 18, 1918, the family moved to Point Township where her father later founded the Furman Canning Co. On March 23, 1940, she married Norman A. Geise who preceded her in death March 1, 2000. Her husband worked at the family business and in 1944, Norman, along with Elnora’s brothers, Foster and William, and her brother-in-law, James Kohl, took over the company which is now Furmano Foods.  

Elnora graduated from Northumberland High School in 1935 and went to Philadelphia College of the Bible for a year.  

For most of her life she was an active member of Trinity Lutheran Church where she taught Sunday school and attended the Ladies Friendly Bible class. For many years she also taught Good News Clubs and had a life long interest in missions. She was a 4-H leader in sewing and was an active member of the Point Township Garden Club.

Elnora enjoyed working in her flower garden and won many ribbons for her arrangements at the club’s annual flower show. Elnora’s favorite activity was spending time with her family. She and her husband enjoyed traveling around the United States and the world, especially after his retirement. When they were at home, she never passed up an opportunity to care for her grandchildren.

She is survived by one sister, Alice Kohl, of Northumberland; two sisters-in-law, Dora Furman and Ruth Geise, of Northumberland; two daughters and one son-in-law, Lois Stuck, of Mifflinburg and Ruth and Leslie Risser, of Middleburg; two sons and daughters-in-law, David and Jody Geise, of Milton and Don and Susan Geise, of Northumberland; 11 grandchildren and their spouses, Gregory Stuck, Wendy and Daryl Orris, Jeffrey and Kim Stuck, Jennifer and Austin Wade, Rachel and John Mingle, Matthew and Jennifer Geise, Chad and Tabitha Geise, Todd Geise, Peter, Jethro and Nancy Jo Geise; and nine great-grandchildren, Asher, Jessalyn, Jedediah and Jenna Stuck, Darby Orris, Brooklyn Wade, Caleb, Ryan and Luke Mingle.

She was preceded in death by one sister, Mary James; four brothers, Andrew, Foster, James and William Furman; and one son-in-law, Wendel Stuck.

The family will receive friends from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. Monday at the First Presbyterian Church, 144 Queen St., Northumberland, followed by the funeral at 11 with the Rev. William Hallman officiating.

Burial will be in Riverview Cemetery, Northumberland.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Elnora’s memory to Good News Club, Inc. of  Northumberland County, Child Evangelism Fellowship, 53 Blue Hill, Northumberland, PA 17857-8667.

Arrangements are by the Joseph W. Epler Funeral Home, 210 King St., Northumberland.
