PENNSYLVANIA'S #1 WEEKLY NEWSPAPER • locally owned since 1854

Pearl Senseman



After retiring from working as a federal employee for many years, she began another 30 years helping others. From tutoring at an elementary school to 20 years volunteering at a daycare center, she loved children. She loved to read and write and do crossword puzzles. Even as her physical health deteriorated she remained mentally sharp and witty, always greeting others with her smile.

She was the last surviving child of Blanche Peirce and Charles H. Osborne. 

She is survived by her son Wesley Senseman and daughter-in-law Muriel, daughter Karen Senseman, son Karl Senseman and daughter-in-law Terry Bachmann, and son Barry Senseman and daughter-in-law Marie; and multiple grandchildren, great- grandchildren, great-great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews and friends.

As she requested, there will be no services, her ashes are to be scattered at sea. Showing kindness to others will be a fit memorial.
