    My deepest condolences to all of you. Grandma Stutzman was a woman that I loved as if she were truly my blood relative. She was, and will always be, an inspiration and the epitome of a woman walking with GOD. Her faithfulness and dedication to GOD and family will always be my highest example of the proverbial woman. Rest in Peace Grandma Stutzman!

    Esther Stutzman was not my relative by blood, but she was always my Grandma Stutzman. She was one of the most Christian women who read the bible, believed it and lived it that I have ever known. Rest in peace, Grandma until we meet again.

    We will miss you Mama Esther…..what a wonderfull, Godly woman! The best Sunday school teacher ever who set such good examples of Christian living to so many little ones, my daughters included. I think she taught me Bible school when the church was on Main St as well. Rest in peace sweet lady!

  4. Esther was related to my family via my grandmother, Josephine Gordy Reppert. She was a Godly woman who truly loved her Lord. I have many wonderful memories of visiting in her home as a child. In later years she came to visit my mother as she spent her last years in a nursing home. When she stepped into Heaven I have no doubt she heard " Well done thou good and faithful servant."

    We met Charles and Esther when we attended the League City Friends Church. They accepted us and welcomed us right away. Charles gave Ron a wonderful Bible to read. Esther invited me to go with her to ladies events. They were true examples of God's love in action. Esther was one of the most dedicated, Godly women I have ever met, and a true blessing to know.
    Condolences and prayers to her family.
