Emeline Klopp, 92, ‘card lady,’ famous for potpie
Emeline M. Klopp, 92, formerly of Akron, went to be with her Lord and Savior Saturday, Oct. 8, 2011 at Ephrata Manor.
She was born in Ephrata to the late LeRoy and Harriet (Birkenbine) Cammauf and was the wife of the late Wilbur W. Klopp who died in 1987. They were married Aug. 5, 1939.
Emeline was a member of Zion Lutheran Church, Akron, for more than 50 years and was in the choir. What she enjoyed the most was spending time with her family and friends. She was known for writing cards and letters of support and friendship, and many called her the "Hallmark card lady." She enjoyed baking Christmas cookies and cooking. Emeline was known for making "the world’s best beef potpie and peach pie." She was also a #1 fan of the Lawrence Welk Show and enjoyed going to the beach with her family. She was employed by Brownstown Vo-Tech as a cafeteria worker. She previously worked at Miller Hess Shoe Company, Akron, and Hamilton Watch Company, Lancaster.
Emeline is survived by three daughters: Jeanette E., wife of Barrie E. Schmid, of Akron; Barbara L., wife of Donald E. Trout, of Akron; and Susan E., wife of Dean Hess, of Lititz; grandchildren: Tawn M., wife of Scott B. Neal, of Harrisburg; Heather J., wife of Dennis James Maloney, of Lititz; Erin N., wife of Jeffrey Sanno, of New Bloomfield; and Landon W. and Kyle A. Hess, of Lititz; great- grandchildren: Tyler, Zachary and Gavin Neal; Jacob, Kirsten and Jaden Maloney; and Mason and Ema Mae Sanno; six brothers: Lester, husband of Evelyn Cammauf, of Akron; LeRoy Cammauf, of Ephrata; Walter, husband of Esther Cammauf, of Brethren Village; Wilbur Cammauf, of Lititz; Carl, husband of Nancy Cammauf, of Akron; and Richard, husband of Jean Cammauf, of Ephrata; two sisters: Caroline Huber, of Manheim; and Jane, wife of Russell Groff, of Lititz; and a dear friend: Clayton "Uss" Roberts, of Lancaster.
In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by an infant brother: Robert Cammauf; a brother: Herbert Cammauf; and a dear friend: Miriam Roberts.
A funeral service will be held on Oct. 14, at 2 p.m. at the Donecker Chapel, Ephrata Manor, 99 Bethany Road, Ephrata, with Rev. Paul Smeltz officiating. Interment will take place in the Brownstown Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Emeline’s memory may be made to Peter’s Porch (an outreach of the church to the community) or the church organ fund, in care of Zion Lutheran Church, 435 Main St., Akron, PA 17501.
Arrangements are being made by Stradling Funeral Homes Inc., Akron/Ephrata. Online condolences can be given at stradlingfuneralhome.com.
