Joseph G. Soellner

July 21, 1992

A Mass of Christian burial for Joseph George Soellner, whoworked at Western Electric for nearly 30 years, was being held today at Our Lady of Fatima Roman Catholic Church, 6400 E. Pratt St.

Mr. Soellner, who lived in Dundalk, died Saturday of pancreatic cancer at Francis Scott Key Medical Center. He was 66.

Born and reared in East Baltimore, Mr. Soellner attended Patterson Park High School through the 11th grade, when he left to join the Navy during World War II, serving on the USS Hammond as a gunner's mate.

He was married for 43 years to the former Geraldine Schroeder. The couple raised two sons, whom Mr. Soellner coached in Little League baseball. He also enjoyed crabbing and taking long walks.

Mr. Soellner was known in his neighborhood as someone who could be depended on in a crisis and always was willing to help out, family members recalled.

He retired from Western Electric in 1985, after working 29 years as a telephone wire inspector.

In addition to his wife, he is survived by his sons, Martin George Soellner and Lawrence George Soellner, both of Dundalk; three brothers, George Soellner of Perry Hall, James Soellner of White Marsh and Frederick Soellner of Baltimore; two sisters, Francine Weaver of Hanover, Pa., and Margaret Clark of Arbutus; and three grandchildren.
