| September/October 1995

We have lost one of our prominent people in our steam community. On April 20, 1995 ELEANOR GEISER FELLNER passed away after a short illness. She was 84 years old.

She was the granddaughter of Peter Geiser, the inventor of the Geiser separator who in 1892 started the Geiser Manufacturing Company in Waynesboro, Pennsylvania. Eleanor had a love for her family and did a lot of genealogy of the Geiser family.

She just loved to talk about the Geiser Company, and how great Peter was, and the impact the separator had on the nation. I knew Eleanor for many years and spent many hours talking with her about Peter and his company, She said that I knew more about the company than she did.

She enjoyed coming to the Smithsburg Steam and Craft Show to see people she knew and the Geiser equipment that was there. I know she will be missed by many people, but not as much as I will miss her!
