Friends may call from 12 noon to 1pm on Thursday, August 3, 2017, at the Virgil L. Howard Funeral Home, 118 South Union Street, Shinglehouse, Pa., where funeral services will follow at 1pm, with the Revs. Robert M. and Sandra D. Howles, pastors of the Shinglehouse United Methodist Church, officiating. Burial will be in the Pauline M. West Cemetery, Millport, Pa.
