Amarant Marion Kanzler Cormier, 94, of Kernersville, NC, passed away peacefully Wednesday, April 8, 2020.

A native of Ritzville, Washington, Amarant was the wife of the late Norman G. Cormier and the daughter of the late Daniel Archie Kanzler and Marie Schroeder Kanzler. She was a 1944 graduate of Ritzville High School. In 1948, Amarant graduated from Holy Names Catholic College, Spokane, Washington, majoring in education. She then graduated in 1949 with a 5th year degree from Gonzaga University, Spokane, Washington. Amarant and Norman were married in 1950 at St. Paulus Lutheran Church, San Francisco, California. Amarant began knitting prayer shawls after breaking her hip in 2003. She made close to 300 prayer shawls that literally went everywhere. She had three that went to Germany. Each prayer shawl was edged in white so that person was always wrapped in Christ's arms.

Survivors include her sons, Paul N. Cormier and wife, Barbara of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and Thomas A. Cormier and wife, Debbie of Kernersville, North Carolina; grandchildren, Kathryne C. Bulger and husband, Ryan of Texas, Seth C. Cormier and wife, Samantha of Hawaii, and Chelsey D. Cormier and fiancé, Nick Clements of South Carolina; and great-grandchildren, Annabelle Marie, Jackson James, and Lila Elizabeth, all of Texas, and Savanna Ann of Hawaii.

In addition to her husband and parents, Amarant was preceded in death by her oldest son, John D. Cormier; and her brother, Oscar Kanzler.
