GINDLESPERGER, John

Berlin, Pa., Oct. 12 - Two custom mine operators were killed and a third narrowly escaped a similar fate at 12:30 o'clock Tuesday afternoon when a 40-ton boulder plummeted from the ceiling of the buffalo Coal Company mine in Goodtown, a short distance south of Berlin, and crushed them to death. The dead: Peter Elmer Weimer, 36, of High street, Berlin; John Gindlesperger, 31, of Diamond street, Berlin, a brother-in-law of Weimer. Homer Gindlesperger, a brother of John Gindlesperger, was working with the other two men. He heard the cracking noise as the boulder started to fall and leaped to safety, although a portion of the big rock grazed his shoulder. The boulder was four feet thick and 12 feet square, according to Coroner P. E. Sass of Somerset county. Weimer's father, Wilson Weimer, lives in Meyersdale, where also resides a brother Edgar and a sister, Mrs. Thomas Ebekka. He also leaves a widow and four children. Gindlesperger is survived by his parents, his widow and four children. A double funeral will be held tomorrow.

Grantsville, Maryland - April 9
The death of Mrs. Naomi Glotfelty, wife of Jacob J. Glotfelty, in the Union Memorial Hospital, Baltimore, on Monday morning, April 7, came as a shock to her many friends and relatives.  Mrs. Glotfelty was taken to the hospital on March 25 for an operation.  She had been suffering for several months from an affection in her head which was pronounced a tumor and rapidly grew worse.  She submitted to an operation last Thursday.  The surgeons found a tumor in her brain, which could not be removed.  She rallied from the operation for a short while, but soon relapsed and remained unconscious until she passed away. Mrs. Glotfelty was a daughter of the late Jesse C. and Nancy Miller.  She was born at Pocahontas, Pa., on May 16, 1887[sic, 1877], being in her 53rd year when she passed away.  She was the second wife of Mr. Glotfelty, his first wife, Addie Longsdorf, having passed away many years ago.  She is survived by her husband and the following children: Mrs. Thelma Shearer, Frostburg; Ralph, of Kingwood, W.Va.; Harold, Orlando and Pauline, at home, and five grandchildren; also by the following brothers and sisters: Mrs. Edith Mammau and Mrs. Nancy Engle, Berlin, Pa.; Mrs. Etta Doerr, Grantsville: Charles Miller, Connellsville; Russell Miller, Greensburg, Pa.; William Miller, Meyersdale, and half-brothers and sisters - John and Edward Miller, Akron, O.; Irvin Miller, Pocahontas; Mrs. Emma Poorbaugh and Mrs. Nancy Brill, Somerset, Pa.; Mrs. Grace Selders, Akron, O., Mrs. Ada Slagle, Meyersdale. Mr. and Mrs. Glotfelty were married in April 1899. They lived in Salisbury several years, later moving to the Gephart farm near Grantsville and then they moved to Grantsville where they lived the last 12 years.  Mrs. Glotfelty made many friends since coming here, who will miss her for her kindness to them in many ways.  She was of an amiable disposition  and was a wonderful homemaker and mother.  She will be greatly missed in the home and the community. She became a member of the Reformed Church, Nov. 22, 1891, at Pocahontas, later transferring her membership to the Grantsville church.  She was a faithful attendant and worker whenever she could help. Funeral services will be held Thursday morning, April 10, in the Reformed Church, her former pastor, Rev. L.N. Wilson, of Berlin, Pa., officiating. Interment will be made in the Grantsville cemetery.

GNEGY, Jessie Marie Wotring

Jessie Marie (Wotring) Gnegy, Oakland, went to be with the Lord on Sunday, Sept. 5, 2010, at her home. Born in Aurora, W.Va., she was the daughter of the late Calvin and Hester (Sell) Wotring. Mrs. Gnegy was also preceded in death by her husband, Harold Elroy Gnegy Sr. Every now and then someone comes along who may not leave a mark on society by being a business professional, but who leaves something greater for generations of family who have lost the rock and center of their foundation. Jessie was a home maker, wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She leaves behind five sons, Harold Jr. and wife Dotty, Robert and wife Marge, Larry and wife Jerry, Tim and wife Sue, and Ron and wife Susan, all of Oakland; one daughter, Kathy and husband Gary, Oakland; eight grandchildren; and eight great-grandchildren. Each person from the youngest to the oldest is left with memories about how she could make them laugh and how her smile could light up the room. Even until the end, she was still giving her loved ones blessed memories that will fill each and every one of their hearts with joy every time they remember these moments. Mrs. Gnegy was also a charter member of the Oak Park Church of the Brethren. She was a longtime Sunday school teacher and a deaconess, and helped with numerous other activities of the church. Serving the Lord was a very important part of her life, and she instilled the love to serve the Lord and help others in each and every member of her family, from the oldest to the youngest. At this time we all mourn our loss but also remember the words to one of Jessie’s favorite songs: "The blessing by faith, I receive from above. Oh, glory! My soul is made perfect in love. My prayer has prevailed, and this moment I know, the blood is applied, I am whiter than snow." After years of hard work and loving her family, Jessie’s prayer has prevailed, and she is whiter than snow. Friends were received at David A. Burdock Funeral Home, Oakland. A service was conducted at Oak Park Church of the Brethren on Wednesday, Sept. 8, with Rev. J. Roger Fike officiating. Interment was held in Garrett County Memorial Gardens.
