Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Apr. 27, 1870
Wayne County
Ohio, USA
Death: Nov. 10, 1941

Barbara Amstutz, daughter of John and Catherine Hofstetter, was born April 27, 1870, near Dalton, Ohio; died November 10, 1941; aged 71 y. 6 m. 14 d. In her youth she joined the Sonnenberg Mennonite Church, of which she remained a faithful member. On December 8, 1896, she was united in marriage to Solomon J. Amstutz, with whom she shared joys and sorrows for nearly 45 years. To this union were born 4 children (Allen, Anna, Celestia, and Edna). She is survived by her husband, 3 children (Allen of Dalton; Celestia, Mrs. Jay Eberly, of Reynoldsburg; and Edna of La Junta, Colo.); 2 stepdaughters (Lydia, Mrs. Ezra Brubaker, of North Canton; Clara, Mrs. Samuel Wenger, of Dalton); 5 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Mother was preceded in death by 1 daughter (Anna, Mrs. Henry Kornhaus) on May 15, 1931; also by 4 stepdaughters, 2 brother, and 3 sisters. Three brothers and 1 sister survive (Noah J. Hofstetter of Berne, Ind.; Aaron of Dalton; John of Trout Creek, Mont.; and Fannie, Mrs. Alfred Sommers, of Albany, Oreg.). The influence of Mother's presence will be greatly missed by her friends and family. She was never known to speak a harsh or unkind word, but chose rather to speak in gentle tones of love and kindness to all. The depth of her Christian experience was expressed in her life by patience, and by a meek and quiet spirit. Funeral services were held at Martin's Church with Bros. Louis Amstutz, J. S. Moser, Jacob Neuenschwander, and Stanford Mumaw officiating. Burial in adjoining cemetery. (GOSPEL HERALD, 27 November 1941.)
