Evelyn Kiesinger Comstock
Evelyn Kiesinger Comstock of Mehoopany, PA passed away Sunday, Nov. 6, 2011 at Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre. Born Jan. 15, 1926 on Golden Hill in Laceyville, she was the daughter of Corey and Ruth Smith Kiesinger.
She worked with her late husband, Howard, for many years in their business, Comstock’s Garage in Mehoopany. She also worked for the USPS in Mehoopany and baked for local restaurants. In her earlier years, she worked at sewing factories. She had a wonderful talent for making beautiful and delicious cakes and did so for many people in the area. Howard was always proud of this and had to have a picture in a special album of every wedding, birthday and special occasion cake that she made.
Mrs. Comstock was very involved in the VFW Post 3583 Ladies Auxiliary of Mehoopany and the Volunteer Ambulance Association, going on many ambulance calls with Howard. If someone needed help, they knew they could call on Evelyn and Howard and help would be available. Evelyn bowled for many years on leagues in Tunkhannock. In the past year, one of her favorite pastimes was going on spur-of-the-moment mystery day trips with her granddaughter, Amanda, sometimes over Dutch Mountain or some other rural location, stopping to have a picnic on the way. She loved her family and will be greatly missed. Evelyn and Howard are together now where there is no more pain or suffering.
She was preceded in death by her husband, Howard C. Comstock; a granddaughter, Andrea Allen; great-grandson, Tye Hollister Tunnicliff and by sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law.
