WOOSTER – I, Donna Jean (Nusbaum) Amstutz passed from my earthly home to my heavenly home on Thursday, May 9, 2019 at my home. 

I was born May 28th, 1941 to John and Blanche (Niswander) Nusbaum in Bluffton, Ohio.  I graduated from Pandora Gilboa in 1959 and the Lima School of Practical Nursing in January, 1961.

I married James E. Amstutz November 11, 1961 and he survives.  Also surviving are daughters, Nancy Amstutz, Pam (Keith) Walquist, Cindy (Ron) Brown; grandchildren, Michael (Anna) Deuring, Avari (Hayden) Gress, John Brown and a great grandson, James Deuring.  Also a sister, Carlene Nusbaum.

To Jim, my devoted husband, Nancy, Pam and Cindy my wonderful and unique daughters, my very special sons-in-law and my precious grandchildren and great-grandchild, my journey on earth has ended but my heavenly life with Jesus my Lord and Saviour has just begun.  As I say good bye, I ask you to hold your loved ones a little tighter.  For those of you who know the Lord as your Saviour, I ask you to keep trusting Him.  If you don’t know Him, my prayer would be that you will come to know Him.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at noon on Saturday, May 18, 2019 at the West Hill Baptist Church, 2241 Mechanicsburg Rd., Wooster with Pastor Zach Swift officiating.  Friends will be received from 10:00 a.m. until the service at noon.  Private family burial will be held.

Remember the days we walked the track at the high school! God Bless your family

Jim and family, I was so sorry to learn of Donna’s death. We graduated together in the P-G HS Class of 1959. I remember something about her having cancer and am so sorry. Hoping now that she has found peace and wholeness and that you too will find peace knowing that she knew she was loved! My prayers will be with you. I hold good memories of our growing up together, riding bikes out to their farm, and being friends. My sympathy.
