Davis / Boehmer Family Fund

Established 2008

Gladys Boehmer of Nuremberg passed away on May 14, 2007, leaving a Last Will and Testament specifically creating a permanent endowment fund with Schuylkill Area Community Foundation to benefit the Nuremberg/Weston Fire Company, Ambulance Association, Lions Club Charity Fund and Emmanuel United Church of Christ in Nuremberg.

The Community Foundation is honored that Mrs. Boehmer thought of us in her desire to create a lasting legacy for charities that she cared about so deeply. It has been a pleasure working with Attorneys Frank Toole and David Rattigan in establishing this fund. Attorney Toole was also a member of the Schuylkill Area Community Foundation Board of Directors from 1995 to 2002.

Mrs. Boehmer was born in Zion Grove, May 29, 1920; she was the daughter of the late Lloyd E. "Pete" and Birdella (Berry) Davis and spent most of her life in Nuremberg. Prior to retiring, she was employed by J.S. Raub Shoe Store, Hazleton, for 50 years. She also worked as a telephone exchange operator and a presser in the Nuremberg Dress Factory.

She was an active member of Emmanuel United Church of Christ, Nuremberg, where she sang in the choir, was a member of the women's guild and was involved in church fundraisers. She was a member of the Order of the Eastern Star Lodge No. 248, Hazleton, and was president of Nuremberg Alumni Association for the past 15 years.

Preceding her in death, in addition to her parents, was her husband, Roy E. Boehmer, who passed away Aug. 18, 1995 and was a resident of Ashland.

Distributions from this fund are made to Emmanuel Church of Christ, Nuremberg-Weston Fire Company, Nuremberg Community Ambulance Association, and Twin County Lions Club Foundation.
