Mary E. Bahr, 85
May 26, 1936-December 19, 2021
—Rocky Hill Borough Clerk—
Mary Elizabeth (Foster) Bahr, 85, of Kutztown, PA, died Sunday, December 19.
She was the daughter of the late Joseph and Jennie M. (Wood) Foster. Mary grew up in Vishers Ferry, NY. She moved to Rocky Hill while her husband was in seminary. She spent 17 years in Rocky Hill before moving to Leesport, PA to begin the next chapter of her life. Mary was always active in an event or organization.
She was the Rocky Hill Borough clerk, and a former regent of the Princeton Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR). Mary was a 55-year member of the DAR and an avid researcher on Ancestry.com, helping many friends and family trace their family history.
She was a member of East Penn Chapter #336 Order of Eastern Star. She played the piano and church organ, loved to sing, and was an excellent sewer—making Revolutionary costumes and dolls. Mary was a knitter specializing in decorative mittens and Peruvian Chullo hats. Family always came first; she was never too busy for a phone call or a visit and visits often involved baking bread, sorting through old pictures or just sitting and chatting.
Wife of the late Rev. Frank J. Bahr and longtime companion of the late Nevin C. Miller, she is survived by her son: Maurice J. Bahr (Debra) of Crosswicks; and daughters: Mary-Grace Carroll (Arthur) of Ewing; Johanna B. Snedeker (Donald) of Skillman; Elizabeth B. Rohrbach (Bruce) of Kutztown, PA; Amity B. Mamola (Jerome) of Lititz, PA; and Mary E. Barr of Michigan City, IN. She is also survived by her grandchildren.
Burial was December 23 in Rocky Hill Cemetery. Memorial contributions may be sent to: Sons of the American Revolution Color Guard Fund; please mail checks payable to Sons of the American Revolution to Nevin Miller, 210 Highland Avenue, Kutztown, PA 19530-1102.
