Emma Elizabeth (Moyer) Gebhart, 86, of Brecknock Twp., peacefully passed away at home on her birthday, Friday, June 28, 2019, with her family by her side.
She was the devoted wife of Floyd E. Gebhart with whom she shared 67 years of marriage.
Born in Reading, she was the daughter of the late Arthur and Hazel (Witman) Moyer.
She was the longtime secretary for Gebhart’s Floor Covering. She was a member at various social clubs and enjoyed meeting friends there. She loved to knit, read, cook, bake, and play cards. One of her favorite things to make was her famous strawberry jam, which all enjoyed. You could always find her in her chair cheering on the Phillies. Most of all, she loved making memories with her family.
She was a beloved mother to Dennis L. Gebhart, husband of Elsie of Mohnton; Karen D. Kercher, wife of Timothy of Mohnton; and Lisa M. Cylcewski, companion of Randy of Kenhorst. She is survived by seven grandchildren, ten great grandchildren and a brother, Charles A. Moyer of Mohnton.
