Harvey Lee Pence

Harvey Lee Pence completed his earthly journey, May 6, 2012 at Consulate Health Care in Woodstock.  Graveside services will be held Tuesday, May 8, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. at Union Forge Cemetery in Edinburg.  Pastor Keith Simmons will officiate.

He was born May 19, 1923 to Carter and Daisy Bowers Pence.   He was a member of Wakeman’s Grove Church of the Brethren.  He served in the army during World War II and had several occupations.  His first choice was farming since good land stewardship is essential to man’s survival.  He was preceded in death by brothers, Frank, Gilbert, George and foster brother Glenn Barrick and sisters, Irene Miller, Hilda Cooper, Geneva Renninger, Annie and Katie Pence and stepsister, Virginia Spence.

Harvey is survived by his wife of 65 years, Pearl Rhinehart Pence whom he married on December 20, 1946; one brother, Robert; sisters, Dorothy Pence and Roberta Wall and foster sisters, Frances Gochenour and Grace Minnick; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Friends may sign the guest book at Dellinger Funeral Home in Woodstock Monday from 10:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers, the family asked that you please give to your favorite charity.

    Pearl,
    You are in my thoughts and prayers with the loss of Mr. Pence. I would see you at Consulate always with him in his room or pushing him down the hallway. You gave him so much of your time and such good care. I’m sure he will be greatly missed and will leave a big empty place in your life. I pray that time will help to ease your sorrow.
    With love and sympathy,
    Carol

    My deepest sympathy to the family of Mr. Pence. It’s hard to lose a loved one no matter what their age. Death does not seem natural to us. I would like to share a comforting scripture that was shared with me when my father passed away. It’s found at Revelation 21: 3 & 4. It brings out that in the future pain, sorrow and even death will be done away with! At Acts 24:15 it tells us that even our loved ones that have passed away will be brought back to life right here on the earth-just as Jesus resurrected Lazarus, his friend. I hope this brings some comfort as it did to me. Sincerely, Sandi
