Donald E.Niswander of Chambersburg PA, died Monday September 21, 2015 at Quincy Village in Waynesboro. Don was born July 1, 1940 in Chambersburg, the son of the late Roy Emmert Niswander and Pearl Irene Gsell of St.Thomas Township, Franklin County. He was preceded in death by the love of his life, Yvonne J. (Seylar) Niswander who died in 2011. They were married 51 years.Don spent over 36 years working at James River Corporation, which eventually became part of Fort James and finally Georgia Pacific. For many of those years he was a machine operator in their carton factory. What gave Don the greatest joy was gospel singing with his wife. Yvonne would play the accordion or piano and both would sing and pray. Don and Von started their singing ministry in 1973 at the Faith Mission on Washington Street. They sang and ministered under the name God’s Willing Workers for over 30 years. Their ministry concentrated on nursing homes and senior care facilities in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Maryland. It was not unusual for them to sing at over twenty-four different facilities in a month. When, in 2010, they both moved into Providence Place of Chambersburg several of the staff knew them from their ministry. Don and Von were inseparable. Don had strong faith and loved serving the Lord. Before moving into Providence Place Don and Von were members of Abundant Life Chapel, Chambersburg, PA. His brother Gene Niswander passed on Tuesday, Sept. 22, 2015 and he was also predeceased by brother, Richard Niswander and two sisters, Hilda Niswander Martin and June Niswander Shaeffer. Don is survived by his niece, Gretchen Cassady of Irvine, CA; a nephew, Mike Cassady of Danville, CA, and a grandnephew and niece. A graveside service will be held on Friday, September 25th, 10:00 AM at Norland Cemetery with the Rev. Harold Yeager officiating. Online condolences may be expressed at www.sellersfuneralhome.com.
