Seidel Family Scholarship Fund
Francis F. Seidel II was the owner and operator of the former Francis F. Seidel II Funeral Home in Sinking Spring for 44 years. He established the Seidel Family Scholarship Fund at the time of his death in January 1998 to benefit students who attended high school in Berks County and who are attending or plan to attend Penn State University – Dickinson Law. The scholarships are given in the name of Mr. Seidel and his wife, Margaret, as well as their son, Francis “Fritz” Seidel III, and his son Francis F. Seidel IV, both of whom died tragically in a house fire in 1991. Fritz, an attorney, was attempting to save his 12-year-old son’s life when they died. Fritz Seidel graduated from Dickinson School of Law in 1971.
