Obituary for Martha A. "Marty" Bossler (Wrzesniewski)

Martha Ann “Marty” Wrzesniewski Bossler, 71, of Hummelstown, passed away Monday, September 30, 2019, surrounded by her family and into the arms of Jesus, upon losing her fight against Pancreatic Cancer.

Marty was born October 26, 1947, at Andrews A.F.B. to the late Arthur F. and Martha A. (Jadush) Wrzesniewski. She was proud to be an American but loved her Polish heritage.

Marty is survived by her much beloved children, Ashley Derickson (Kevin) of Harrisburg, and Travis Bossler (Karin) both of Harrisburg; and her pride and joy, her grandchildren, Amelia and Anna Derickson and Kole Bossler. She also leaves behind her siblings, Steven M. Wrzesniewski (Deborah Lay) of Knoxville, TN, and Michele M. “Mic” Crouthamel widow of William F. of Sewell, NJ; and several nieces and nephews.

Marty was a graduate of the Lower Dauphin Class of 1966, and the Electronic Computer Programing Institute. She retired after 39 ½ years as a Supervisor with the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation. Marty loved to read and found great enjoyment helping Mrs. Walak’s first grade class with her volunteer reading program at West Hanover Elementary School. She also loved to travel and shop, and with her outgoing nature struck up conversations with everyone she met along the way. Marty was immensely proud of her children and grandchildren, and just as fiercely loved those she called her friends.
Marty enjoyed life to the fullest lighting up every room in which she walked.

Celebration of Marty’s life will be held Friday, October 4, 2019, at 11 AM in the Trefz & Bowser Funeral Home, Inc. 114 West Main Street, Hummelstown, with The Rev. Curtis R. Weber, officiating. Friends are invited to visit with the family Friday from 9:30 AM until time of the service.

In lieu of flowers the family requests memorial contributions be made to John Hopkins Hospital, 600 North Wolfe Street, Carnegie 417, Baltimore, MD 21287 to support pancreatic cancer; or to the Humane Society of Harrisburg Area, Inc., East Shore Shelter, 7790 Grayson Road, Harrisburg, PA 17111.
