To the family of Maude Amstutz, we send our thoughts of sympathy at this time of her passing. For me, Carol Oswald, thoughts of Maude bring memories of a petite lady with a quick wit, and kind spirit. For Gary, who knew Ivan better, pleasant memories too. We are trusting for your comfort and the joy of remembering Maude's long and meaningful life. She is at home with the Lord. Gary and Carolann

We were sad to read of Maude's death, but rejoicing that she is home in heaven with her Savior and her husband, Ivan. What a long and wonderful life! We have fond memories of days at Grace Brethren Church. Maude and Ivan were always faithful in their ministries and a joy to know and worship with. We extend our heartfelt sympathy to the family. May God bless and comfort you.
Sincerely, Jim & Maxine Johnson
