Herbert W. Shollenberger, 92, Sulphur Run Road, Jersey Shore, went home to be with the Lord on March 16, 2020. Herb was born June 1, 1927 in Hamburg, PA to Herbert and Mary Shollenberger.

He served in the U.S. Navy from 1951 to 1954. He served in the WWII and the Korean War on a wooden-hulled mine sweeper and was discharged with the rank of Gunner’s Mate Second Class/Seaman Second Class USNR. While serving, he received the American Theater Ribbon Victory Medal, National Defense Service Medal and Good Conduct Medal. 

He was united in marriage to Edith M. Reeder on July 30, 1988. He was a member of Crossroads Community Church in Jersey Shore.  Herb had a great love for the outdoors and enjoyed hunting for many years. His true love and passion were the times he spent with his wife at Little Pine    State Park camping and going fishing together.  He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather and a great Christian example of what a man should be.

Herb is survived by his wife, Edith; son, Bill (Cheryl) Shollenberger; daughters Lilly (Jim) Bickert, Angel Milton, step-sons Randy (Jodi) Reeder, Barry (Lori) Reeder, Steve (Julie) Reeder,  step-daughters, Levina (Carl) Irvin, Carol (John) Crawford, Kathy (Tom) Arndt, Susan (Gary) Budinger, and Brenda (David) Duck.  Herb was blessed with 22 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his first wife, Amelia Shollenberger and his second wife Ora Shollenberger.

In keeping with Herb’s wishes, there will be no services; the Yost-Gedon Funeral Home and Cremation Services LLC, 121 West Main Street, Lock Haven will be handling the final arrangements. Interment will be in the Plainfield Church Cemetery, Pen Argyl, PA.

In lieu of flowers memorials can be sent to Crossroads Community Church, 1454 State Route 44 Hwy, Jersey Shore, PA 17740.

Edith, Carol, Brenda and families, it saddens me to hear of Herbie's passing. I will miss seeing him in church. He always had a smile on his face and greeted me every week. I am so sorry for your loss. I hope my brother was waiting to greet him when he got to Heaven and introduced himself as my beloved brother. If I can do anything please let me know. Love, Holly Gharet

Dear Aunt Edith, and children,
So sorry to learn of Herb's passing as I know his departure leaves a large gaping hole in every heart of those who knew and loved him. Praying that God will hold you close as you navigate through the valley of grief. I pray that you will be keenly aware of His presence as you traverse this path, and in the midst of your pain you will experience His peace. Love to you all.
