Bertha Dean White Wolfe

Another death in the family to report – Aunt Bertha Dean White Wolfe has passed away at the age of 94.  She was the wife of Hugh Alexander White, my Dad’s brother, who died in 1962.  Bertha remarried Robert Wolfe, who died in 2013.  She was born in Snedekerville, PA, one of the few of this generation who could say she was born and lived almost her entire life there.

Bertha and Bob Wolfe lived on a farm on Snederville Road, but with the address of Columbia Cross Roads.  When Grandma Effie White died in 1963, the post office she ran in Snedekerville was moved to a Columbia Cross Roads address, thus ending zip code 16944.

The Snedekerville Post Office served this rural area for many years and covered a large area that went into Tioga County, PA.  Effie’s husband, Walter was the Postmaster before her, but she took over and continued the position of Postmistress of Snedekerville, from 1953-1963.
