Daniel S. Amstutz, son of Samuel S. and Anna (Sommer) Amstutz, was born in Wayne Co., Ohio, Aug. 9, 1865; passed away in a Massillon, Ohio, hospital, following a lingering illness, March 21, 1948; aged 82 years, 7 months, 12 days. In his youth he accepted Christ as his personal Saviour and was received into the Mennonite Church, of which he remained a member until death. On November 22, 1890 he was married to Elizabeth Bixler, who preceded him in death in 1938. In 1936 they retired from farming and settled in Orrville. After the death of his wife, he made his home with his son (Edwin) and daughter-in-law, until eight days before his death when he was taken to the hospital. For a number of years he was unable to attend church services because of ill health, but he was always grateful for visits and appreciated greatly the reading of the Scriptures and the singing of hymns. Surviving are 3 sons (Albert, Nashville, Tenn.; Noah and Edwin, Orrville, Ohio), 4 daughters (Mrs. Ella Sprunger, and Cevilla, of Orrville; Mrs. Elam Gerber, Kidron, Ohio; and Mrs. George Gerber, Dalton, Ohio), one sister (Mrs. Caroline Bixler, of Orrville), one brother (Simon Amstutz, Apple Creek, Ohio), 13 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren. One brother predeceased him. Funeral services were held March 24 at the residence and at the Kidron Mennonite Church, of which he was a member, and were in charge of Reuben Hofstetter, assisted by Isaac Zuercher and Allen Bixler. Burial was made in the adjoining cemetery. (Gospel Herald - Volume XLI, Number 17 - April 27, 1948, pages 406, 407.)
