Funeral Card Friday: Leonard F. Shrom

Mr. Shrom was one of my neighbors growing up. Sweet man. He and his wife moved in across the street from us in Sadsbury Township shortly after us.

His funeral card had a light picture of a country scene on the front. Inside on the left was the poem Footprints. On the right, it read:

Mr. Shrom was a retired railway postal clerk. He had retired shortly before he and Mrs. Shrom (Grace Province Shrom) moved up across the street. Like us, he was originally from Coatesville but they moved up from Delaware County. He left behind, in addition to his wife, a son and two daughters. I do not recall ever meeting the girls but Paul, his son, was more local and often visited.
