Brobst for 41years until his passing on March 13, 1995. She worked in various shoe factories in Orwigsburg, then Atlas Powder Company, Reynolds, until becoming a full-time homemaker. Born May 30, 1928, in Andreas, she was the daughter of the late Henry P. and Olivia J. (Zeigler) Kemmerer. She was a member of Zion Church Lewistown Valley, Tamaqua.

She was a wonderful cook and baker, and she made the best PA Dutch potato filling and carrot cake. For many years after her husband passed, she spent almost every weekend with her two sisters going out to dinner or shopping. Her favorite pastime was doing jigsaw puzzles and was always working on one sitting by her window. She was also preceded in death by five brothers, Floyd, Cleo, Ralph, James, and Arden; and a sister, Louella Gerber.
