Elizabeth M. Schrock

Elizabeth M. Schrock, age 92, of Carrington, ND, formerly of Goshen, IN, died Monday, February 6, 2012 at Golden Acres Manor. With the hymn Softly and Tenderly accompanying her passage, she departed to eternal rest in Jesus Christ with loving family at her side.

Elizabeth M. Kuhns was born on January 6, 1920, the daughter of Menno M. Kuhns and Fannie (Miller) Kuhns. The oldest of fourteen siblings, she grew up on a farm in the Amish community of Elkhart County, IN. Elizabeth was united in marriage to Albert D. Schrock on December 23, 1945. They made their home there until 2004, when they moved to Carrington.

Elizabeth’s faith was nurtured through regular Bible study, fellowship with believers and daily prayer; she lived her faith by showing kindness to family, friends and strangers. She enjoyed the Creator’s world, traveling widely with Albert and sharing his love for camping and fishing. They were active members of Wakarusa Missionary Church and Brenneman Memorial Missionary Church. Faithful in the smallest of details, she loved cooking, embroidery, reading, Christian music and gardening. She retired in 1985, from Kroger Company after many years in grocery retail, where she blessed customers and co-workers alike. Her strong faith displayed patience and hope in the face of life’s hardships.

Elizabeth is survived by her husband, Albert; one daughter, Dorothy (Jerry) Belile, Carrington, and a niece Verda (Schrock) Fletcher, Elkhart, IN, who resided with the family; three grandchildren, Jacki, Jerry (Michelle), and Julie (Jerry) Jensen; five great- grandchildren, Taylor, Erin, Adam, Hailey and Bellami; three brothers, Menno (Esther) of Trego, WI, Bill (Carol), and John (Pat) and two sisters, Fannie Mae (Ralph) Stichter and Leona (Marvin) Stutzman, all of Elkhart County, IN.

She was preceded in death by her parents and nine siblings.

Message: Beautiful picture and obituary. I am thinking of you today and hope Mom & Ann's trip was a good one and you are enjoying their company. I remember going to Shorty & Liz's house in Wakarusa on bike rides, and playing upstairs in a room with lots of Tonka toys. Good times. God bless you.

Message: I'm a 53 brazilian citizen, living in Bauru, and I didn't know Mrs. Elizabeth, but I knew that her life, blessed many lives at whole world (I can perceive her loving and peaceful look, just looking at her photo, and this look, blessed me), and, now, she is in Heaven, resting at GOD's arms.
I am sure that the short description of her, published at Goshen News and Evans sites, can't show all about her life.
Her work is following her, as said at Bible, and her fruits will continue to appear, surprising many people.
Thanks, Mrs. Elizabeth, and thanks to The Lord for her life.
