Obituary

Grace A. Kauffman, 78, of Mount Pleasant Mills, passed away on Monday, March 8, 2021 at the Geisinger Medical Center in Danville.

Born on June 10, 1942 in Stevens, Lancaster Co., she is the daughter of the late Clarence and Esther (Horst) Diem.

On August 10, 1963, she married her surviving husband, Wayne Kauffman, with whom she was blessed to share over 57 years of marriage.

In addition to her husband, she is survived by a son, Dale Kauffman and wife Rochelle of Shellman, GA; two daughters, Joyce Kauffman and Janice Stoltzfus and her husband Daniel all of Mount Pleasant Mills; eight grandchildren, Daren, Charity, Ethan, Nevin, Braden, and Andrew Kauffman all of Shellman, GA, Danita Stoltzfus of Mount Pleasant Mills, and Larelle Grace and her husband Mahlon Brubaker of Port Trevorton; two brothers, Merle Diem and his wife Thelma and John Diem and his wife Sharon; three sisters, Mary Fox, Anna Brubaker and her husband Lloyd, and Elizabeth Weaver and her husband Earl; and three sisters in law, June Heller, Shirley Helmuth and her husband Larry, and Doris Dressler.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by one brother, Ivan Diem and one sister in law, Elnora Diem.

Grace was a 1960 graduate of Myerstown High School.

Along with her husband, in 1967, she co-founded Kauffman Farm Supply in Mount Pleasant Mills and later established Kauffman Farm Supply in Belleville.

Her hobbies included gardening, tending to flowers, reading and writing; however, her greatest joy came from spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren.

She was a dearly loved wife, mother, and grandmother who will be missed.

She was of the Mennonite Faith.

The Kauffman family would like to thank the staff of Geisinger Hospice and the Geisinger Medical Center for their care and compassion extended to Grace and the family.

Funeral Services will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at the Delaware Mennonite Church, 16 Delaware Church Road, East Salem with Pastor Kenneth Freed, Pastor Orval Graybill, Bishop Conrad Brubaker, and her son, Dale Kauffman officiating. Interment will follow at the Lost Creek Mennonite Cemetery, Oakland Mills.

A viewing will take place from 6-8 PM, Friday, March 12, 2021 and from 10:00 AM until the time of the funeral services at 11:00 AM on Saturday at the church.

Memorial contributions in Mrs. Kauffman’s memory can be made to Christian Aid Ministries, 2412 Division Hwy, Ephrata, PA 17522.

Arrangements have been entrusted to the Brown Funeral Homes, Inc., 111 Westfall St., McAlisterville.

I first meet Grace when her son Dale. Married my sister Rochelle down here in South GA. I know her son Dale as he has been a part of our family for many years. My deepest sympathies to the family. As we say here in the south. To be absent from the body to the presents of the Lord.
