Sylvia M. Hostetler, a resident of Bremen and a longtime resident of Milford, passed away quietly on October 26, 2021 at Signature Healthcare.
Born on December 7, 1930 in Elkhart County, Sylvia was the daughter of Nathaniel Miller and Betty (Miller) Davidson. On November 19, 1950, she was united in marriage to Jacob Hostetler with whom she shared more than 70 years before his passing on December 17, 2020. To their union, four children, 11 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren and 5 great-great-grandchildren were born.
Sylvia was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother; nothing meant more to her than time spent with her family. She enjoyed gardening, canning the fruits of her labor for many years, and playing cards (especially Rook, Euchre and Canasta). In addition to her relationship with Christ and membership at Milford Christian Church, time was best spent preparing Sunday dinner for her whole family - which Sylvia lovingly did for many years.
Those who survive with memories to cherish include son, Jerry Hostetler of Milford; daughter, Esther (Thomas) Gibbs of Palestine; 11 grandchildren; 28 great-grandchildren; five great-great-grandchildren and sister, Catherine Hochstetler of Bremen. In addition to her husband, Jacob Hostetler, she was preceded in passing be two daughters: Karen Sorensen and Kathy Vermillion; two grandchildren; a great-grandson and two sisters: Edna Hochstetler and Betty Lou Yates.
