Cryder, 85, of 360 Park Ave., Woolrich, director emeritus of the Woolrich Mill, died at 1:30 p.m. Wednesday in the Lock Haven Hospital Extended Care Unit, where he was as patient since Nov. 4. He was in failing health for one year. He was employed at Woolrich Mills for 55 years as a laborer, designer, foreman and then as director, retiring in 1965. He was then given the title of director emeritus of the company. Born June 30, 1894, in Woolrich, he was the son of the late Sheridan and Susan Phillips Cryder. He was a life-long Woolrich resident. Cryder was a director of the Pine Creek School District for 20 years and past secretary of the Woolrich Cemetery Association. He was a member of the Woolrich Community Church where he was treasurer of the board of trustees, a member of Lafayette Lodge No. 199 and the Williamsport Consistory. Surviving are his wife, the former Bertha Lynn [Linn], whom he married 56 years ago; one daughter, Mrs. Robert (Leah C.) Oberheim, Bellefonte; one grandson, Robert L. Oberheim, Bellefonte, and one granddaughter, Karen L. Oberheim, Washington, D.C. Services will be held at 2 p.m. Saturday in Woolrich Community Church with visitation from 7 to 9 p.m. Friday and 11 a.m. until time of service on Saturday in the John A. Yost Funeral Home, 121 W. Main St., Lock Haven. __________________________Further Research Required Source 01409:15 indicates that the name of his mother was Susan Arvilla Quiggle Cryder whereas the above obituary (00838:53) states that her name was Susan Phillips Cryder.

Bertha graduated in Beech Creek, Clinton Co., PA, 1909. Institution: institution unknown.(1368) Bertha Linn Cryder lived in Beech Creek in 1900 and resided in the general area of the borough in 1981 (00853:119). She died at the Lock Haven Hospital and is buried in the Woolrich Cemetery (01409:15). __________________________Further Research Required Source 00838:26 indicates a birth-year of 1893 while source 00947:3 indicates a birth-year of 1892. The latter is likely more accurate based upon its possession of the complete date of birth and its year being more consistent with a high school graduation date of 1909. It should be noted that her husband's obituary in the Lock Haven Express (dated December 6, 1979) mentioned that he had been married for 56 years, which means they were married in 1923 (00838:53). This conclusion is inconsistent with source 00947:3 which has a wedding date of February 16, 1922.
