Calling hours are Tuesday, April 26 from 6-8 pm at the Sonnenberg Mennonite Church in Kidron. Burial will take place on Wednesday, April 27 at 10:00 am for family and friends at Sonnenberg Mennonite Church followed by a Memorial service at 11:00 am.
She was born Dec. 16, 1929 to John and Helen (Gerber) Geiser. She married Aquila Amstutz on April 17, 1954 and had four children, all surviving: Gene (Sharon) Amstutz, Faye (Neal) Hochstetler, Audrey (Randy) Mast, and Kris (John) Steiner. She also had 12 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren, 2 foster daughters, Barb Courtney and Bonnie Prentice and 1 foster granddaughter.
Mom had a strong faith in God and was a strong prayer warrior lifting each family member before Jesus frequently. She was a lifelong member of Sonnenberg Mennonite Church and even in her later years loved listening to Sunday services on her phone. She was a spiritual friend and support to many people. Mom was very compassionate and loved sharing with people. She was energetic and loved to stay up with current family activities. She also loved visits from her grandchildren and many friends.
Mom was a life-long learner, loved to read, watch the birds, and texting with her family. She loved and appreciated deeply God’s Word and reading daily and sharing truths of God’s Word with her family and others. She also loved all the seasons but really enjoyed snow and sledding.
She was preceded in death by husband Aquila of 53 years, brothers Elmer, Willis and John Geiser, sisters Irene Brubaker, Edna Nussbaum and Verda Nussbaum.
Special thanks to Shady Lawn nurses and staff and all the Hospice staff who cared for her. Thanks for the many visits to Mom during her stay at Shady Lawn. Gestures of friendship and kindness were appreciated so much. The family truly appreciates everyone’s love to Mom.
