Grieser, Minnie Nora Stuckey

Minnie Nora Grieser was born to Samuel and Mary Ann Freyenberger Stuckey on Noy. 9, 1901, at their farm home, one mile north of Pettisville, Ohio; and entered her eternal home on Nov. 9, 1984, her 83rd birthday, at the home of her daughter, Mary Snyder, in Phoenix, Ariz. 
    She attended the Ziegler School and later worked for the Aaron Frey and Joseph Liechty families. While the barn was being constructed, on the Frey farm, Minnie developed a deep and abiding love for one of the carpenters who later became her husband.
    On Feb. 5, 1924, she was united in marriage to Eimer Grieser. They became parents of three children: six grandchildren; and one foster granddaughter. Their marriage union was broken by Elmer's death on May 14, 1971. She is survived by her three children: Orville J. and his wife Nancy, Archbold, Ohio; Mary and her husband Elden Snyder, Phoenix, Ariz.; and Merle and his wife Karla, LaSalle, Colo.
    She is also survived by six grandchildren: David and Frederic Grieser, Archbold, Ohio; Sally and her husband Michael Beck, Napoleon, Ohio; Kevin and Sam Snyder; Matthew
Grieser, LaSalle, Colo.; and a foster granddaughter, Betsy Loss, Phoenix, Ariz.; one sister, Mrs. Eldon (Lydia) Rupp, Archbold, Ohio, three sisters-in-law: Mabel Stuckey, Wauseon, Ohio; Irene Nafziger, Archbold, Ohio; and Florence Grieser, Archbold, Ohio; her nieces and nephews, neighbors and friends.
    She was preceded in death by her husband, Elmer; one brother, Dennis Stuckey; one sister, Phoebe Schrock; and a sister that died in early childhood.
    Minnie was a 1oving and caring wife, mother, and grandmother, always ready to help; always concerned for the spiritual and physical we1fare of her children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews; whom she loved deeply.
    She had assisted in the operation of the family farm until Elmer's retirement. Then she was employed at Fairlawn Haven until 1978. After her husband's death, the farm home was sold and she moved to Archbold. She was active until the last two years enjoying work with the Women's Missionary and Service Commission, Golden Age Sewing group, Care & Share Store, and Sunshine Children's Home.
    She was a member of the Central Mennonite Church since March 25, 1917 when she was baptized upon confession of faith in Jesus Christ as her Lord and Saviour.
    On Nov. 13, 1984, a family service was held at Short Funeral Home with burial following in the Pettisville Cemetery. The Memorial Service was held at Central Mennonite in charge of Pastor Charles Gautsche, John Schrock, and Jim Bartholomew.
