Woodall, Elmer L. Jr. 94

  • Fallowfield Township
  • Born: 1920-08-11
  • Died: 2015-08-01
  • Funeral Home: Schrock-Hogan Funeral Home, Charleroi | Get Directions
  • Elmer L. Woodall Jr., 94, of Fallowfield Township (and more recently a resident of Pittsburgh), died Saturday, Aug. 1, 2015. Elmer was 10 days short of turning 95, having been born Aug. 11, 1920, in Baltimore, Md., to the late Elmer L. Woodall Sr. and Rose (nee Harle) Woodall. Having learned the sheet metal and tinsmithing trade from his father, Elmer began working for L. R. Mack in Charleroi in 1938. Although offered a deferral from military service during World War II (given the defense work in which L.R. Mack was involved), Elmer elected to enlist and served from 1942 to 1946. He served in the 69th air service squadron in the Southwest Pacific, obtaining the rank of sergeant. Following the war, Elmer became employed with the Corning Glass Works in Charleroi, where he headed the sheet metal shop and where he remained employed until his retirement in 1982. Elmer enjoyed an active life, both mentally and physically. He loved the outdoors - hiking, hunting, fishing, camping, riding motorcycles, and touring historical sites. He continued doing the yard work on his two-plus acres in Fallowfield Township well into his 80s. He exercised his mind by reading broadly, especially history, and by working in his home shop as a “Mister Fix-It” for family and friends. Paget’s disease of the bone brought on frailty necessitating a move to Pittsburgh to be near his daughter in 2011; nevertheless, he retained an active mind, dry wit, and good humor until recent months when radiation treatment for skin cancer precipitated his decline. Elmer’s wife, Irene (nee Black) Woodall, preceded him in death Aug. 7, 1992; five months short of their 50th wedding anniversary. Elmer was also preceded in death by his brothers, Earl Woodall, Roland (Orma) Woodall; and sister, Norma (Robert) Winwood. Elmer is survived by his daughter, Karen L. (Neal Binstock) Woodall of Pittsburgh; and a number of nieces and nephews. Friends and family will gather at the SCHROCK-HOGAN FUNERAL HOME AND CREMATION SERVICES INC., 226 Fallowfield Ave., Charleroi, for visitation from 9 to 11 a.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 4, 2015. Immediately following, there will be a brief service at the Monongahela Cemetery prior to interment. Online condolences may be sent to the family at www.schrock-hogan.com. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Family Hospice and Palliative Care, 50 Moffett St., Pittsburgh, PA 15243.
