Obituary

Elmer D. Lancaster, 99, a resident of Frankfort and Georgetown, Kentucky, passed away on Monday, December 31st, 2018. He was born on November 11th, 1919 in Switzer, Kentucky, son of the late John D. and Emma (Metts) Lancaster. Elmer is survived by several cousins, nieces, nephews and many dear friends. In addition to his parents, Elmer was preceded in death by the love of his life, Mary Wilma Lancaster; a sister, Edna Wagner; and his longtime companion, Elizabeth Sebree.

Elmer was a World War II Veteran in the European Theater, serving in the famed 83rd Infantry Division consisting mainly of servicemen from Ohio known as the Thunderbolt Over Europe. Elmer served in five campaigns including Normandy, Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes, and Central Europe. Elmer participated in many major battles, including Normandy at Omaha Beach, St. Malo, The Hedgerows, Ardennes, and The Battle of the Buldge. The 83rd also liberated prisoners from Langenstein, a subcamp of the Buchenwald Concentration Camp.

Elmer lived most of his life in Cincinnati, Ohio, where he returned after the war and he and his wife Wilma made their home. Elmer was employed and retired from General Electric after thirty eight years. Following his retirement, he and Wilma moved to Georgetown, Kentucky to be closer to their relatives. After forty eight years of marriage, Elmer lost his beloved Wilma in November of 1990. He later became a companion to, and spent many happy years with, Elizabeth Sebree. Elmer later enjoyed the remaining years of his life surrounded by his devoted family members, caregivers and friends. Visitation will be Saturday, January 5th, from 11:00am until time of service at 1:00pm at Johnson’s Funeral Home. Burial will be in Georgetown Cemetery.

Our sincere condolences to the family. The Bible has beautiful and comforting scriptures to help cope with the grief and sadness. I pray that the family will find comfort in the promise for the future at Isaiah 26:19; “Your dead will live. And the earth will let those powerless in death come to life”.

May God mend your broken hearts from the loss of your dear Mr. Lancaster. (Psalm 34:18).  He will grant you relief from your grief.  Under His government, you will enjoy complete freedom from pain and death.   Jesus taught us to pray for that wonderful day at Matthew 6:9-10.  Here is the link to a video that has brought me much comfort and hope: https://www.jw.org/finder?srcid=share&prefer=content&applanguage=E&locale=en&item=pub-imv_4_VIDEO&docid=1011214.  I sincerely hope it will help you as well.  Please accept my deepest sympathy.  Philippians 4:6-7; Psalm 37: 11, 29.

I am very sorry for your loss. You can find a comforting scripture in your Bible at Revelation 21:4. Almighty God, Jehovah promises that death will be done away with. He has the power and is eager to remove death. His Son, Jesus Christ also promised that the dead will live again and will live forever under peaceful conditions. Please go to Jew.org for more comforting thoughts by means of Bible based videos and publications. Again, I send my condolences. Sheena
