Alice Marie Sholder

Alice Marie Sholder, 82, of Williamsport, passed away Saturday, Dec. 21, 2019, at Valley View Rehabilitation and Nursing Center.

While growing up and for most of her life, Alice was known as “Marie” by family and friends, with “Alice” being used by most of the Valley View staff during her time at that facility.

She was preceded in death by her husband of 49 years, Richard D. Sholder, on May 26, 2006.

Born July 3, 1937, in Montgomery, she was a daughter of the late LeRoy and Helen (Murphy) Andrews.

Marie was a Montgomery High School graduate. She worked as a secretary for the Local Carpenters Union for many years, but ultimately retired from Bi-Lo where she worked in the bakery and as a cashier. She was a member of Bethel Linden Presbyterian Church. She enjoyed crocheting and going to dinner with friends in the W&W (widows and widowers). Marie greatly enjoyed family functions with her kids, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and friends of the family.

Surviving are three children, R. Dale Sholder, of Williamsport, Dalene M. Webb (Ron), of Berwick, Kenneth E. Sholder (Laurie), of Glenmoore; and seven grandchildren, Jessica (Shawn) McGrantham, Travis Sholder, Chelsey (Jeff) Gehring, Lindsey (Scott) Dalane, Jacob (Jennifer) Sholder, Cassandra Webb and Corey Sholder. Marie is also survived by ten great-grandchildren and a brother, Richard Andrews (Arlene), of Hughesville.
