Susie was born in Ephrata Township on Feb. 4, 1913 to John Gehr and Annie Miller Gehr and was the middle child of 14 children.
She married Robert E. Slabach, and was married to him for 43 years until his death in 1974. She was married to Charles Miller from 1986 until his death in 1989.
Susie was a member of the Oregon Community Methodist Church and was organist there for 50 years. She taught Sunday school in earlier years and was a member of the women’s missionary group. She was also a member of the Young at Heart Club of Brownstown. In earlier years she was a seamstress and enjoyed embroidery work into her 92nd year.
Susie is survived by one daughter: Virginia S. Wolf, wife of Charles T. Wolf, of Lancaster; three granddaughters: Diane, wife of Geary Barnes, of Chicago, Ill.; Susan, wife of Daniel Bielawa, of Lancaster; and Amy, wife of Rolf Gubler, of Luray, Va.; one brother: George Gehr, of Ephrata; and one sister: Kathryn Weaver, of Strasburg.
Her son: Robert E. Lee Slabach, died in 1961.
Funeral services were held on Aug. 29 at Wheat Ridge Chapel at Fairmount Homes, Ephrata, with the Rev. Douglas Gehr and the Rev. Paul Gehman officiating. Interment was private at the convenience of the family.
In lieu of flowers, consider a contribution to the Blind Association of Lancaster, which was one of her favorite charities; Hospice of Lancaster County for the excellent care that they gave to her; or the Benevolent Fund at Fairmount Homes for their continuing care with love for six and a half years.
