Carolyn C. Walizer, 76, Ulysses, PA

Carolyn C. Walizer, 76, of Ulysses, PA, died Saturday, May 31, 2008 in her home.

Born December 16, 1931, in Altoona, PA, she was the daughter of Karl A. and Gwendolyn Wood Chelgren. On July 22, 1955, in Bellwood, PA, she married Elery H. Walizer, who survives.

A 1953 graduate of Indiana University of Pennsylvania, she retired from the Northern Potter School District in 1996 after over 43 years of teaching vocal and instrumental music, elementary and junior high art and library.

Active in extracurricular work at school and civic work in the community, she was the girls varsity volleyball and basketball coach, yearbook advisor and did staging for class plays and school musical productions.

She was the first woman to be elected to the Ulysses Borough Council, where she presided as president for eight of her ten years. During those years, the town’s sewage and water systems were installed. Mrs. Walizer also helped organize the Potter County Solid Waste Authority, serving as secretary-treasurer.

Most recently, she was a member of the Northern Potter School Board for eight years, and a representative to the Seneca Highlands Intermediate Nine Board for seven years. Traveling extensively, she and her husband visited all 50 states and 31 foreign countries.

Surviving besides her husband, Elery, are: two sons, Herbert L. (Teresa) Walizer of Jacksonville, FL and Elery Jon (Charlinda) Walizer of Pennsdale, PA; seven grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren; a brother, Karl (Emily) Chelgren of Eugene, OR; and nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by a sister, Marilyn Woodhall.

Friends may call Wednesday, June 4, 2008 from 2:00 – 4:00 and 7:00 – 9:00 PM at the Olney Funeral Home & Cremation Service, Ulysses, PA.

Funeral Services will be held 11:00 AM, Thursday in the Ulysses First Baptist Church. The Rev. Thomas Shatto will officiate. Burial will be in Wood Family Cemetery, Grampian, PA.
