Helen I. Schreffler


Helen I. Schreffler, of Northumberland, our beloved mother and grandmother passed from this life into her eternal home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Aug. 15, 2019, at the age of 96.
She was born July 6, 1923, in Mount Pleasant Mills, a daughter of the late Robert and Mary Wendt. In 1942, she married the love of her life, Robert T. Schreffler who passed away in 2008.

Helen was a graduate of Sunbury High School in 1941.

She is survived by two daughters and sons-in-law, Sheila and Robert Moody of Macungie, and Cindy and Donald Raker of 20 Meadowview Dr. Selinsgrove; four grandsons, Robert Moody of Bethlehem, James Moody of Israel, Chris Raker of Sunbury, and Rusty T. Raker of Philadelphia; nine great-grandchildren; and her only brother and his wife, Robert and Norma Jean Wendt of Oxford, Mississippi.

Many pleasurable memories were made traveling through the States and then residing in Melbourne, Fla., for several years before returning to Northumberland.

Helen will always be remembered for her passion of reading her Bible as well as teaching Bible classes throughout her life. Her love of her Lord and for others showed to all she came in contact with each day. She truly left a loving impact on everyone she met. She flourished under the loving care of the staff at Nottingham and the love was mutual.

A private graveside service will be held for the immediate family.

In lieu of flowers, the family is requesting memorial gifts in Helen's memory be made to the Stonington Baptist Church Mission Fund, 2113 Hosta Road, Paxinos, PA 17860.

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