Helen Irene Funk, age 96, of Mercersburg, Pa., passed away at her home on Friday, July 12, 2019.

Born October 27, 1922, in Tunnelton, W.Va., she was the daughter of the late Jesse B. and Ada O. (Wolfe) Funk, and the widow of James Monroe Funk, who passed away in 2003.

She graduated from Tunnelton High School in 1940.

She worked at Stanley Fulton Orchards, Dillon Orchards, and her father-in-law, Stanley Funk’s orchard. She and her family also owned a small orchard until 1984.

Helen was a wonderful homemaker, mother, and gardener, and she loved to write letters to Senators, Congressmen, and her many relatives and friends. That was a specialty of hers.

She was a member of the Damascus Christian Church, in Big Cove Tannery, Pa.

Helen is survived by one son, Malcolm James Funk, of Mercersburg; a sister, Viola E. King; and a number of nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by three brothers, Galen, Orval and George; and three sisters, Louise, Leliah and Agnes.

Funeral services will be held at the Damascus Christian Church, 197 Big Cove Tannery Road, Big Cove Tannery, Pa. on Monday, July 15, 2019, at 11:00 a.m. Rev. Edward James will officiate. Burial will follow in the adjoining church cemetery.
