Eleanor L. Weiser

April 25, 1923 — November 1, 2023

She was greeted with cheers, hugs, kisses and high fives in April of 2023 when she celebrated her milestone birthday of 100 years, outliving her brother and each of her eight sisters. Now with her passing on Wednesday, November 1, 2023, each of those same 34 nieces, nephews, great and great-great nieces and nephews who came together for her birthday will assemble once again to mourn her death. Graveside services at Mifflinburg cemetery will be held on Saturday, November 11, 2023 at 11 am.

Born on April 25, 1923 in MIfflinburg, a daughter of the late Charles and Hannah Emma (Hauck) Weiser. She is a descendant of Frederick Weiser, the fourth child born to John Conrad Weiser and Anna Magdelena Uebele Weiser.

She graduated from Mifflinburg High School class of 1940.

At the age of 22, she went to live with her sisters in Philadelphia, where she enrolled in a two year phlebotomy program offered by the Pennsylvania Hospital. Upon her graduation she transferred to Children's Hospital where she worked in several of the hospital's clinical laboratories, eventually becoming the head of the serology Lab, a position she held for many years until she retired. She taught dozens of Students and mentored many at the beginning of their careers.

Her interests were many. She loved to travel, driving once to California and back in her stylish, white Chevrolet convertible Impala with red leather seats, and making many other trips around the eastern part of the United States and Canada. She expressed her creativity with photography owning several 35 mm cameras, one of the first Poaroids and a Kodak Super 8 mm movie camera, projector and screen. She appreciated the arts so much so that she held season tickets for many years to the Phildelphia Orchestra, the Walnut Street Theater and National Geographic Travelogues. Often, she went to New York to see operas at the Met. She loved to garden, grow flowers and watch birds. In her later years she took lay ministry courses offered by the Methodist church, gave programs for the Women's auxiliary, and served as her church's Treasurer for more than a decade.

While we will no longer be able to see her in person, our beloved matriarch will be watching down on her surviving family members, safeguarding and guiding them to their next lives.
