Paul H Knieriem

May 22, 1932 — October 23, 2022

Frostburg

Paul H. Knieriem, 90, went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Sunday, October 23, 2022, at Mountain City Nursing Home.

Born on May 22, 1932, at Miners Hospital in Frostburg. He is the son of the late Henry H. Knieriem and Lillian (Zais) Knieriem. He is also preceded in death by his brother, Ralph Knieriem.

Surviving is his wife of 65 years, Janet (Kidwell) Knieriem; children, Stephen Knieriem, Brian Knieriem and wife Janette, Brenda Knieriem, Shari Knieriem and husband Craig Baker, Linda D. Shoemake, Shelley Landis and husband Kenneth, Sandra K. Knieriem; grandchildren, Jeremy Kennell, Stephanie Metz, John Shoemake, Shanna Garland, Waylon E. Skidmore, Eli N. Knieriem, Mia Knieriem; great-grandchildren, Liam, Austin, R.J., Jaylynn, Willow, Laynee, Adelyn, Charlie, Rylee Hope and Jaden.

Paul graduated from Beall High School in 1950. Shortly thereafter he moved to D.C. and worked for the National Biscuit Co., just one of his several jobs. In the later 50’s Paul moved back home where he worked for several coal mines in the area. He married his High School sweetheart, Janet in 1957. After marriage, Paul set some of his passions aside, like hunting, fishing, and a little less time on his Buicks. Normally he spent most of his time keeping his Buick in tip top shape which he loved very much. Paul and Janet moved to Tampa, FL and started their family in 1959. Their first born was a girl followed by a second girl in 1960. After this, work was scarce, and the family moved back to Maryland and finally settled in Eckhart. Their family grew to 3 more girls and 2 boys. In 1976, Paul and Janet bought a house in Grahmtown where they have been for close to fifty years. Even though Paul was always busy, he always made time for his family who he loved dearly and unconditionally.

Paul was a hard worker and a kindhearted person. He helped everyone he could, made many friends, had many stories of his experiences, and never met a stranger. He was a “Jack of all trades”.

In 2018 the Doctors told Paul, he would be better in a nursing home and that is where he resided for the past few years. Everyone prayed that Paul would be well enough to come home one day but that wasn’t Gods plan. He was eventually called home to eternal rest. Throughout their marriage Eckhart Baptist Church became their second home; they wanted their children to know the God they so loved and served and acknowledge him as their Savior.

The family would like to thank Mountain City Nursing Home Staff for their kindness and compassionate care for Paul.
