Oscar Geisel has passed away

Former Ossian and Norwell teacher, Oscar Geisel, 96, of Berne, died at 1:20 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2007 at Swiss Village in Berne.

Born in Adams County to Albert and Mary (Leyse) Geisel on March 8, 1911, he married Anna Carper on Aug. 2, 1933; she preceded him in death. Mr. Geisel taught in Adams County and Ossian until becoming guidance director at Norwell High School in 1963. He retired in 1977, having served in education for 41 years.

Thanks to Sevens member Deb Blinn for letting me know of Mr. Geisel's passing. As Deb said, he was a great guy.
