Sitler was shot and killed Sunday morning while she played the organ at the First United Presbyterian Church in Coudersport. Her ex-husband, Gregory Eldred, is jailed on murder charges for the shooting. Sitler was a teacher in the Northern Potter School District for many years.
The funeral is in Benton, PA, in Columbia County, about 2 ½ hours from the school district.
School Superintendent Scott Graham says he realizes that, because of the distance, some people may not be able to travel to the viewing or funeral, so he intends to work with Sitler’s pastor to plan a Memorial Service for the school community.
Graham said he will release additional information about that service as soon as possible.
