Anna E. Rhine, 94, formerly of Rote, PA, passed away February 6, 2021, at Valley View Nursing Home in Montoursville, where she had resided. Anna was born in East End Nittany Valley, November 29, 1926, to the late Bruce and Dorothy Eisenhower. On March 10, 1945, she married George C. Rhine, who passed away November 29, 1997.
Anna had been a member of the Salona Lutheran Church, where she was active with the choir and several social groups. She held a number of jobs over the years, including the former Sylvania Plant, in Mill Hall, and the Central Pennsylvania Auto Auction, in Rote. She volunteered and served as president of the Lamar Township Volunteer Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary. Throughout her lifetime, Anna was very involved with homemaking and her children's activities; whether it was driving her kids to dance lessons, attending baseball games, 4-H Club, Vacation Bible School or being involved with CRAFT, Inc. (Hope Enterprises). She enjoyed gardening, crafting, jewelry making and thrift shops. Anna was a collector of many things, including stories. She loved to spread joy and make people laugh, which is why she participated in the Off BEN Avenue Follies for over 20 years. She was very social and enjoyed the company of others, family dinners and picnics where she would bestow everyone with her witty one-liners and humorous stories.
Survivors include two daughters, Georgianna Watson of Walden, NY, and Amy (Chad) Bryan of Williamsport, PA; one son, Drew (Shelia) Rhine of Loganton, and a brother, Richard Eisenhower of Mill Hall. Also surviving are three grandchildren, Marisol Bower, Sharga Frey and George Watson, along with four great grandchildren.
