|BARBARA M. ALSHEIMER
AVOCA-Barbara M. Alsheimer, 81, of the Waterbury Hill Road, passed away suddenly Sunday morning (April 14, 2013) at Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pa.
Born in Wallace on January 18, 1932, she was the daughter of the late Robert and Ila Mattoon Jackson. Besides her parents, she was also predeceased by her son, Daniel Alsheimer in 1986 and by her two brothers, Wendell Jackson and Russell "Bill" Jackson.
A lifelong resident of Avoca, Barbara was a graduate of Avoca Central School and attended the former Dayne Business School in Bath.
She was employed in the accounting department of the Taylor Wine Co. in Hammondsport for about 27 years and also owned AA Tax Service in Avoca since 1971.
Barbara was an avid Yankees fan and always enjoyed attending the sporting events that her children were involved with. She also enjoyed knitting and often knitted baby hats for the area hospital; but most of all she will be remembered as a loving wife, mother and grandmother who was known for her delicious "feasts" that she would prepare whenever her family were together.
Her family includes her husband of nearly 63 years, Walter J. Alsheimer, who she married in Avoca on August 6, 1950; her five children, John (Kimrae) Alsheimer of Interlaken, Patricia (Thomas) Broderick of Hornell, Joan Alsheimer (Michael Gabrielli) of Corning, Robert Alsheimer (Linda Impelizzieri) of Liverpool and Barbara (Harry) Fuller of Bloomington, Ill; her 13 grandchildren, two step-grandchildren and several great-grandchildren and step-great-grandchildren.
Calling hours are from 11 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday (April 20) at the Avoca Funeral Home, 22 N. Main St., Avoca, where a funeral and committal service will be held in her memory following calling hours at 1 p.m. Saturday, with Rev. Daniel Pickering officiating.
