BOOTH John A. Booth
81, of Fredericktown, died peacefully at his home on Wednesday, Sept. 1, 2010. Born Sept. 1, 1929, in Elmira, N.Y., he was the son of the late Ainsworth and Lucy Booth. In 1938 his family relocated to Mansfield, where his father purchased a farm, beginning what became a large dairy operation.  Throughout his youth, John was actively involved with the Future Farmers of America, taking on special projects aside from his daily farm responsibilities and academic studies. In recognition of those efforts, along with his ideas for various agricultural approaches, he was awarded the American Farmers Degree in Kansas City, Mo. in 1950. Popular among his classmates for his affable knee slapping humor, he took even less seriously his keen intellect and one teacher recalled later, "him being one of his brightest students." He graduated with honors from Mansfield High in 1947. In 1953, John broke stride from farming and served with the United States Army 7th Division in Korea near the 38th Parallel. He was a team coach for the 17th Infantry Rifle Team, was named Soldier of the Year by the 8th Army Division. He was discharged as a sergeant in 1955. On Jan. 11, 1958, he married Donna Jane Soper who survives. In 1963, John graduated from the Ross Leffler School of Conservation, Brockway, the training school for the Pa. Game Commission and was assigned as land manager in Luzerne County. In 1970, he became Land Management Supervisor for the Northeast Division in Dallas, Pa., covering 100,000 acres in 13 counties. He retired in 1991, closing the door on a career he truly enjoyed and blended with as naturally as the forest around him. He was often quoted as "being a lucky man to get paid to walk in the woods," being able to be a small part of the effort to preserve and perpetuate Pennsylvania's natural resources. John felt a kinship and often marveled at the smart workings of nature, observations that kept his curiosity piqued until the end of his journey. John served on the board and committees of Easter Pennsylvania Nature Conservancy, Audubon Society, Luzerne County Cooperative Extension Service, Soil Conservation Service, Conservation Officers of Pa., North American Wildlife Enforcement Officers, Boy Scouts, Hunters Safety, and Working for Wildlife. John cherished his family and the simple gifts of life, from clear running streams, the chorus of songbirds witnessed from his porch rocking chair and the scrawled drawings from his children and grandchildren. Along with his wife of 52 years, he is survived by three children, Holly (Rick) Sethman of Scenery Hill, Jenny Booth (Wes Livingston) of Cody, Wy., Kevin (Shelly) Booth of Asheville, N.C.; five grandchildren, Rainey, Caity and Carly Sethman, Lucy and Gardner Booth; brothers, Wickham (Pat) Booth of Port Orange, Fla., James (Linda) Both of Hayesville, N.C.; sisters, Ellen (Doug) Dart of Mansfield, and Myra (Fred) Brace of Beaufort, S.C.  At John's request, burial arrangements are private. The family invites friends to stop in at the homestead on Saturday, Sept. 4 between 3 and 8 p.m. for a Celebration of Life Open House. A memorial service will be held over Memorial Day, 2011 in Mansfield. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be offered to UPMC Alzheimer Research Center or Hospice Care of Washington, Pa. Funeral arrangements are under the direction of the John B. Greenlee Funeral Home, 2830 Main St., Beallsville.- Wellsboro Gazette, September 8, 2010

LANDIS Joyce E. Herr
58, of Lititz, left this world to spend eternity with her Creator God on Saturday, Sept. 4, 2010, after a courageous five-year battle with cancer. She was lovingly cared for at home by family and friends during the last few weeks of her life. Joyce is survived by her husband, Dr. Dwight A. Herr of Lititz. They were happily married for 37 years, and have two wonderful daughters, Angela, wife of Ed Murphy of Lititz with their two children, Noelle and Eliza and Pamela, wife of Joey Rogers of Richmond, Va. with their son, Josiah.

Dale and Erma Landis of Lititz, as well as four sisters and one brother, Jean Yordy of Michigan, Josie Swartzentruber of Ohio, Jackie Sands of Washington, Janice Martin of Womelsdorf, and J. Dale Landis, Jr. of Mountville. After growing up on a farm across from Landis Homes, Joyce lived most of her married life in Muncy and later, in Wellsboro, before God finally called Joyce and Dwight into full-time mission work. They served with SEND, International in Central Siberia, where they helped to plant a church for Russians and Buryats. Their time there was cut short by Joyce's cancer and for the past five years they have lived in Lititz and attended Calvary Church. Joyce will be remembered for her bubbly, friendly nature. Her laughter and infectious optimism warmed the hearts of those who knew her. Joyce's hospitality and acceptance of others were a reflection of God's love and grace.

God richly blessed Joyce's family with her life.
