Louise Charlotte was the oldest daughter of six children born to Florence Pauline Kreider and Albert Lee George, Sr., born in Shamokin Dam, Snyder County, PA. Raised in Sunbury, Northumberland County, PA, she was a 1940 graduate of Sunbury High School. After graduation, Louise was employed first as an operator for Bell Telephone Company and in 1942, she went to work in the testing department of Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company.

It was while working at Westinghouse that Louise met William J. Schreffler, and they were married at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in a double-ring ceremony performed by the Rev. Leo F. Duerr on May 27, 1945.

Bill was the son of Dorothy Heebner and William C. Schreffler, born in Pottsville, Schuylkill County, PA. He grew up in Athens, PA, and was a 1942 graduate of Athens High School. He was inducted in the U. S. Army Air Corps on December 10, 1942, during World War II. At the time of their marriage, Bill was stationed at Fort Bragg, NC.

After his discharge, the couple returned to Sunbury where both were reemployed at Westinghouse. They were members of Trinity Lutheran Church in Sunbury and resided in Sunbury until 1948 when they moved to Lewisburg, Union County, PA. Louise resigned during the summer to await the birth of their first child and to devote her time to being a full-time homemaker. Complications arose shortly after giving birth to their son, and Louise passed away a few weeks later.

Bill remarried and in 1958 relocated to Whitehouse, NJ. A daughter was born of his second marriage. He worked as a lab technician for thirty years with Air Products in Piscataway, NJ. He was a member of the Readington Township Senior Citizens Club and a life member of the Friendship Hose Company, Sunbury. He was survived by his wife, son, daughter, and grandson.
