George Russell Sommer, Jr. was called home to Our Beloved Lord on July 7, 2017. There he joins his sister, Carol Riesberg-Skewis and his brother, Frank Sommer. George leaves behind his loving wife of 25 years, Susan Marie Harmer-Sommer; brother, Thomas Radford Sommer and wife Marilyn; in-laws, William and Colleen Harmer, Christopher and Theresa Gollmer and an amazing group of nieces and nephews; Christine and Brian Stewart, Douglas Riesberg, Suzanne Riesberg, Meghann, Stephanie and Chris Jr. Gollmer, and Shannon and Erin Harmer.
An Army veteran, he rarely spoke of his service years as a courier during the intense wartime in Vietnam. During the last 21 years, George and Sue owned and operated Hi! SewCiety Sewing Center in Kernersville, NC.
A Funeral Mass will be offered for George at Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church on Thursday, 11:00 am after a 30 minute music prelude by the Choir and Cantors of OLG. The address is 2301 W. Market St. in Greensboro.
In lieu of flowers, Sue had requested that donations be offered to Our Lady of Grace Music Ministry. Make checks payable to Our Lady of Grace Catholic Church with "OLG Music Ministry" written on the memo line. Thank you. Dona eis requiem sempiternam.
