Birth: Apr. 9, 1854
Wayne County
Ohio, USA
Death: Jan. 10, 1936
Wayne County
Ohio, USA

Married David C. Amstutz in 1906. Daughter of Daniel & Magdalena Steiner.
Amstutz, Fannie, daughter of Daniel and Magdalena Steiner, and widow of the late Bishop D. C. Amstutz, was born April 9, 1854, near Orrville, Ohio; died at her home adjoining the former site of the Mennonite Old People's Home, near Rittman, Ohio, on Jan. 10, 1936; aged 81 y. 9 m. 1 d. On July 1, 1906, she united in marriage to Bishop David C. Amstutz, founder of the Old People's Home, who preceded her in death on April 28, 1924. Being the oldest of a family of ten children, she is survived by four brothers (Daniel W. of Denver, Colo.; Peter H., John S., and Noah C., all of Orrville, Ohio), one sister (Mary, wife of Philip Hilty, Rittman, Ohio), besides a large circle of relatives and friends. Two brothers and two sisters preceded her in death. In early life she accepted Christ as her Saviour and united with the Crown Hill Mennonite Church, of which she was a faithful member at the time of her decease. "Aunt Fanny," as she was commonly called, endeared herself to many by her kind and loving disposition, making many sacrifices for the good of others. It was her delight to remember her friends with greetings during the Christmas season, which went to many states. After the death of her brother Peter's wife, she became as a mother to the children and tenderly cared for them when they most needed the love and care of a mother. After her marriage to Bishop David C. Amstutz she extended much help and encouragement to many of the inmates of the Old People's Home, as they often came to her with their problems and troubles. In the Sunday school and Church services her place was seldom vacant except when ill health prevented. For several years she was afflicted with heart trouble. Her last illness was of short duration, she being bedfast for just three weeks, during which she gradually became weaker until she quietly passed away, remaining conscious to the end. During the last few days of her life she was often heard repeating scripture verses and the Lord's Prayer in German. Tush has gone from us a noble Christian woman who shall be missed by a large group of relatives and friends. "Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth; yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them." Funeral services were held at the Crown Hill Church, conducted by E. F. Hartzler and I. J. Buchwalter. Text, I Cor. 15:6. Buried in Crown Hill Cemetery.
