Jemima Grieser, daughter of
Martin and Judith Johns Baer ,
was born on Oct. 8, 1882, at Wellman, Iowa, and passed from this life
28, 1977 at her home east of Archbold; Ohio. Her age was 94 years, 4
months, and 20 days. In her long lifetime
she enjoyed unusual health and vitality. It was only during the last
that she was unable to care for herself and maintain her home. At about
seventeen years of age Jemima-moved with her parents and family from Wellman, Iowa
to the Archbold, Ohio,
community which became her home for 77 years.
On August 24,1902 Jemima was
united in marriage to Ephraim Grieser. Six children were born to their
one son and five daughters. Ephraim passed away on July 16, 1945: After
husband's death Jemima opened her home to young men coming to the
for work. Over the years a total of 60 fellows from 12 states and four
countries found a home with "Grandma Grieser." The occupation of
"homemaker" should surely be attributed to her; a home for husband and
family; then after her family was grown, a home for many in a new
community. In her youth Jemima accepted Jesus Christ as her personal
and became a member of the Mennonite Church.
She has been a
faithful member of the *Cenyral Congregation. She was active in the
Missionary and Service Commission and the Golden Age Sewing Group.
She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, one
infant daughter, a son-in-law, one grandchild, two great-grand-
sisters and three brothers. She is survived by five children: Laura,
Rufenacht of RR2, Archbold, Ohio;
Mrs. A1meda Short of RR2, Archbold, Ohio; Truman C. Grieser and his wife Beulah of
RR1, Archbold, Ohio;
Ruth, Mrs. Harold Short of RR2, Fayette. Ohio and Martha, Mrs. Gaylord
of RR2, Archbold, Ohio; 22 grandchildren; 56 great-grandchildren; 4
great-great-grandchildren; two sisters, Mrs. Abbie Wyse of Midland,
and Mrs. Amanda Beck of Archbold, Ohio; her nieces and nephews, many
relatives, neighbors, and friends.
