Martha I. Wolfgang, 98, Selinsgrove

SELINSGROVE — Martha I. Wolfgang, 98, of Dam Hill Road, went to be with her Lord on Tuesday, May 14, 2013, at Evangelical Community Hospital, Lewisburg. During the final hours of her life, she was surrounded by her loving family. She was greeted at Heaven’s door by her daughter, Evelyn, whose death she had grieved since Jan. 23.

She was born Sept. 9, 1914, in Penn Township, a daughter of the late Elmer and Bertha (Bressler) Burkey. On April 4, 1942, she married Rufus Wolfgang, who preceded her in death in 1968.

She was employed by the Selinsgrove Dress factory, Nite Kraft, Sunbury and the Danville Manufacturing Co. and retired from David Knit, Northumberland.

She was active in various activities at Helfenstein Holiness Church, where she was a member for 25 years. At the time of her passing, she attended God’s Missionary Church, Sunbury, where she was active in the Willing Workers Missionary Group.

After retiring, she loved reading her Bible, traveling and keeping an immaculate house. She especially enjoyed spending time and helping her grandchildren and great-grandchildren with projects. In her later years, she looked forward to Wednesday evening Bible study, given by her dear friends, Herb and Sandy Watts, and cards and phone calls from her beloved niece, Charlotte Kisner.

She is survived by one son and two daughters-in-law, George and Rachel Wolfgang, and Lois Wolfgang; 13 grandchildren; 32 great-grandchildren; and 30 great-great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by two sisters, Carrie Wolfgang and Zella Hoffman; two sons, Gordon and Clarence Wolfgang; son-in-law, Carson Walter; one daughter, Evelyn Wolfgang Walter; and one great-great-grandson, Nicholas.

A visitation will be held from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday in God’s Missionary Church, 820 Susquehanna Ave., Sunbury, followed by the funeral at 11 with the Rev. Jacob Martin and the Rev. Leonard Wolfgang officiating.

Burial will be in St. Paul’s “Middlecreek Dam” Cemetery, Selinsgrove.

Donations in Martha’s memory may be made to God’s Missionary Church, 820 Susquehanna Ave., Sunbury, PA 17801.

Arrangements are by the V.L. Seebold Funeral Home, 601 N. High St., Selinsgrove.
