Daryl Dunn Woellmer, 80, of South Abington Twp., died on Sunday at home surrounded by his loving family. He was the husband of Marilyn (Mirtz Davis) Woellmer to whom he was married for almost 24 years and together for 34 years.
Born September 2, 1939 in Williamsport, he was the son of the late Charles and Ruth (Dunn) Woellmer. Daryl was raised Methodist and had a very strong faith in God. He honorably served his country in the United States Army as a Major in the Signal Corps.
Daryl graduated from South Williamsport High School and attended Rider College. He worked for over 30 years for Paper Magic and held the position of Vice President of MIS for his last 10 years there. He retired as a programmer and analyst for Bridon American. Daryl was a member of the American Legion Post 487, Clarks Green. He enjoyed golf (especially playing courses all over with Marilyn), bowling, tennis, and attending Broadway shows at the Masonic Temple. His greatest enjoyment was spending time with his family and going to his grandson Marc’s football games.
The family would like to thank the nurses and staff of Allied Rehab, Dr. Phillip Boccagno, Dr. Martin Moran, and the nurses and staff from Allied Hospice, especially Ann, Kristen, Jonathan, Diane and Cheryl, for all of their compassion and care for Daryl.
Surviving in addition to his loving wife are his children: Richard Woellmer and wife Cathy of Bethel, Kristin Hamilton and husband Mark of Millerton, and Denise Strickland and husband Robert of Scott Twp.; 5 grandchildren: Marc Davis, Kelly, Kyle and Chad Strickland, Micah Hamilton; one great-granddaughter: Everly Rose Hiller; two sister-in-law, Marji Powers of Newtown and Deborah Walsh of Roaring Brook Twp., a niece, Darleen Newill and husband Bill, and several great nieces, great nephews and cousins.
