Elizabeth Amstutz, daughter of Daniel B. and Catherine (Hofstetter) Bixler, was born November 28, 1864, and died October 5, 1938, at age 73 years, 10 months, 7 days. In her early youth she united with the Sonnenberg Mennonite Church where she remained a faithful member until early 1936, when she became affiliated with the Kidron Mennonite Church where she remained a faithful member until her death. On November 22, 1890, she was united in marriage with Daniel S. Amstutz who survives. To this union were born the following children: Albert of Kidron, Noah and Edwin of Orrville, Anna (Mrs. Elam Gerber) of Kidron, Sarah (Mrs. George Gerber) of Dalton, Ella (Mrs. Omer Sprunger) and Cevilla Amstutz of Orrville; and also 12 grandchildren. Besides the previously named family there remain 2 brothers (David Bixler, Versailles, Missouri; Daniel Bixler of Dalton, Ohio), 2 sisters (Mrs. Albert Loganbill, Mission, Tex.; Mrs. David Moser of Dalton, Ohio) and a large host of relatives and friends. She resided in Wayne County, all her life. She was a kind, loving mother, always concerned about the duties of home and the welfare of her family. She bore her affliction patiently till the call came to the great beyond. Short services were conducted at the home in Orrville, Ohio, and further services were conducted at the Kidron Mennonite Church. She was buried in the Kidron Mennonite Cemetery. The officiating ministers were Allen Bixler and Isaac Zuercher. (GOSPEL HERALD - Vol. XXXI, No. 30 - October 27, 1938 - pp 663, 664)
