Doris (Cindy) J. Kemmerling Bohler, 85 of Pine Grove, entered eternal life on Friday, December 10, in the Tremont Health and Rehabilitation Center.  

Born on October 1, 1936, in Pine Grove, she was a daughter of the late Charles M. and Dora A. Herring Kemmerling.

Doris was a 1954 graduate of Pine Grove High School and attended Penn State, where she met her husband and got her "Mrs." degree. 
She was employed for over 30 years in Quality Control for Allied Chemical after breaking the mold in being the first woman hired into a technical position.

Preceding her in death were her husband of 56 years, Gerard M. Bohler; three sisters, Ina Zerbe, Eva Zimmerman and Parthenia Kemmerling; five brothers, Theodore Kemmerling, Sr.,  Robert Kemmerling, Daniel Kemmerling, Harvey Kemmerling, Roy Kemmerling.

Surviving are two daughters, Cheri (John) Rinehart, Dillsburg and Krista (John) Klinger, Jr., Pine Grove;  a son, Thomas Bohler of Herndon; 10 grandchildren, 16 great grandchildren, 1 great great grandchild; a sister, Olive Charles of Newark, Del. and a brother, Kurt Kemmerling, Sr. of Pine Grove, as well as a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.

Doris was deeply loved and will be remembered for the warm smile she gave everyone, for her superpower of getting her grandchildren to take naps, for her incredible repertoire of ditties, for never outgrowing being a "nix nootz," especially when she was with her siblings, and for making everyone feel welcome and special.  To Doris, a stranger was simply a friend she had not yet met.  

Graveside Services will be held at Schuylkill Memorial Park Cemetery at the convenience of the family.  

The family would prefer, in lieu of flowers, memorials be made to the Pine Grove Area Educational Foundation, P. O. Box 98, Pine Grove, Pa. 17963, in her memory.
