HANOVER Caroline Moul Fitz John, 95, of Homewood at Plum Creek in Hanover, died Tuesday, October 21, 2014. Born in Hanover, on April 23, 1919, Caroline was the daughter of the late Earl Samuel Fitz and Virginia Washington Lewis Fitz. She was the wife of Adolph E. John, her husband of 22 years, who predeceased her on December 5, 2009. She was also predeceased by a brother, Earl Samuel Fitz, Jr., and sisters, Ann Fitz Lesley and Elizabeth Fitz Bixby. Caroline was a graduate of Eichelberger High School class of 1937 and received the prestigious Oak Leaf Award, which represents strength of character, leadership, and dependability. A graduate of Wilson College, Chambersburg, in 1941, she majored in German and then went on to receive a Masters Degree in Library Science from Drexel Institute of Technology (now Drexel University), Philadelphia, in 1942. Caroline's career as a librarian covered many types of libraries: school, county, federal, and public. Her earliest position was as an apprentice in the Hanover Public Library, a position she continued throughout her high school and college years. Her mentor was library director Mabel C. Wolcott. Upon graduation from Drexel Institute, Caroline remained at the college as assistant cataloger. For a short period, she served at the Louisville Public Library (Louisville, Ohio) which was housed in the Louisville High School serving both the school and the public. Then she went on to become assistant director of the Geauga County Library in Chardon, Ohio, and director of the Receiving Station Library at Norfolk Naval Base in Norfolk, Va. Most of her career was spent on Long Island, N.Y., in the Valley Stream Public Library (1951-1967) and Amityville Public Library (1967-1983). As director of each library she was instrumental in the construction of a new library building and in the expansion of extensive book collections for reference and pleasure reading. She was the first professional librarian certified by the State of New York of the Amityville Public Library from which she retired in 1983. After retiring from her library career, Caroline married Adolph E. John of Valley Stream, N.Y., and in 1987 returned to her hometown of Hanover, where she continued to live for nearly 30 years. Caroline was a member of the American Library Association as well as the New York State and Nassau and Suffolk County Library Associations. She was a member of Zonta International, a service organization for executive and professional women, for more than 50 years. She held many offices in the organization on the local and district level one term as president of the Long Island chapter (1965-1967), two terms as treasurer, one as lieutenant governor, and one term (1980-1982) as Governor of District III covering the east coast from New York to South Carolina. She was also a member of the Mary P. Myton Literary Society of Amityville and the Community Club of Garden City, N.Y. She was listed in Who's Who of American Women and Who's Who in Library Science. A lifelong member of Emmanuel United Church of Christ, 124 Broadway, Hanover, Caroline served on the Consistory as deacon and elder for about 10 years. She was a member of the National AARP and more than a 50-year member of the Col. Richard McCalister Chapter DAR serving about 10 years as secretary. She was also a member of the Hanover Area Historical Society. During her lifetime Caroline enjoyed traveling throughout the U.S., including Hawaii. She also visited England, Europe, New Zealand, and Australia. She was an avid reader and seamstress and also enjoyed playing bridge, making silver jewelry, photography, and knitting. Caroline is survived by nephews and nieces including Rob and Deb Bixby of Hanover, Andy and Louise Bixby of Colorado, Susan Lesley and Mark Mieritz of Wisconsin, and Sam and Beth Lesley of Arizona; and close friends, Barb and Don Horneff of Hanover. As per Caroline's wishes, a private service will be held.

Note: A BIT OF HISTORY BY FITZ

The Fitz I-X-L Steel Overshoot Water Wheel is the product of three generations of unbroken experience in the design and manufacture of water wheels. Its high efficiency is due to its correct mechanical principles and to its careful design and construction.
The manufacture of Overshoot Water Wheels was begun by Samuel Fitz, in Hanover, Penn., U. S. A., in the year 1840. The industry has been carried on continuously since that time on the same site under the management of the son and grandson of the original founder.
The earlier Fitz Wheels were, of course, built of wood. A number of orders are still being received for iron parts for wooden water wheels, as described later in this booklet, but by far the greater part of the business done today is the manufacture of the all-steel Overshoot Water Wheels, in which the company specializes.
The real credit for the invention of the modern Steel Overshoot Water Wheel and for its development into its present highly efficient form must be given to the late John Fitz. Very early in his business career he realized the great possibilities of this type of water wheel and he devoted the greater part of his life to the study of its principles and the improvement of its efficiency. How well he succeeded is shown by the high regard in which the Steel Overshoot is held today. In spite of this, we have not relaxed our efforts for further improvements, but are constantly striving for still better results in every detail of construction.
The knowledge and experience accumulated by our organization during its long career in the water wheel business forms an even greater asset than our well equipped modern factory. Most of our employees have grown up with us, and our millwrights and mechanics have been trained in this line from early youth. In reckoning with your water power problems, therefore, we have a vast fund of practical experience to draw from and we are glad to place this freely at the service of our customers.
Sincerely yours,
FITZ WATER WHEEL COMPANY, J. S. Fitz, President.
