Obituary for Arthur James Schlemmer

Arthur James “Jim” Schlemmer, age 93, of Zelienople, passed away on Wednesday, February 12, 2020 while under the care of Passavant Retirement Community.

Born October 27, 1926 in Ellwood City, he was the son of the late Arthur Clyde Schlemmer and Nan (Barr) Schlemmer.

Jim proudly served our country in the U.S. Army during World War II. He graduated from Robert Morris Business School with an Associate’s degree. Jim retired from Ellwood City Forge after many years of service. He was a member of Bell Memorial Presbyterian Church in Ellwood City. He was also a 32nd Degree F&AM Mason of the New Castle Consistory. In his free time, Jim enjoyed walking outdoors, gardening and golfing. Above all, he was a loving husband, father, grandfather and great-grandfather who will be dearly missed and fondly remembered.

He leaves behind to cherish his memory his wife of 69 years, Mary Jean (Wilson) Schlemmer, whom he married on July 24, 1950; his children, Martha Eileen (Rev. Jay Abernathy) Schlemmer of Greensboro, NC, Katherine Lee Cripps of Harrisburg, Karen (Roy) Davidson of Beaver Falls, and Nancy Schlemmer of North Sewickley Twp.; his grandchildren, Aaron Cripps, Sarah Kurtz and Daniel Davidson; four great-grandchildren; his brother, Frederick (Jane) Schlemmer of Enon, OH; and his sister, Lois Schlemmer of Ellwood City.

In addition to his parents, Jim was preceded in death by his granddaughter, Caitlin Cripps; and his siblings, William Schlemmer, Betty Schlemmer and Ruth Salpini.
