Elmer "Yum" Hershfield of Port Vue, died Sunday, December 5, 2010, in UPMC McKeesport. He was the son of the late Ernest and Frances Hershfield and the loving husband of Charlotte (Cassidy) Hershfield for 64 years. Mr. Hershfield retired from the U.S. Postal Service and was a veteran of the U.S. Navy during World War II. He was a member of Port Vue American Legion Post 447 and NARFE. Elmer enjoyed playing cards, bowling, going to the casino, meeting for breakfast Saturday morning with other retired postal workers and being with his family. Calling bingo for his favorite group of ladies every third Monday at Clancey's in Dravosburg was a treasured pastime. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by brothers Ernest, Clyde and Robert Hershfield; and sister Esther Sherry.

The family wants to thank McKeesport Hospital staff for taking care of Elmer the last couple of weeks.
