LuAnn Hostetler, 63

LuAnn Hostetler, 63, Wabash, died at 12:10 a.m. Monday, Dec. 10, 2018, at Visiting Nurse & Hospice Home, Fort Wayne. 

LuAnn was born at Canton, Ohio, on Dec. 28, 1954, to Warren Eugene & Gladys (Doerschuk) Pickens.  Her parents preceded her in death. 

On Dec. 14, 1974, she married Bruce Hostetler.  He survives.

Also surviving are their three daughters; Janell (Nathan) Dockter, North Manchester, Stefanie (Joseph) Brown, LaFontaine, and Kari (Doug) Davenriner, Warren; 11 grandchildren; Cinda (David) Horst, Sterling, Ohio, Geneen (Kurt) Whitcher, Hinckley, Ohio, and  Beth (Stephen) Weingart, North Canton, Ohio. 

LuAnn was a nurse and worked at Timbercrest Senior Living Community and Manchester Clinic, both at North Manchester.  Retiring from nursing in 1997, she became a co-director of independent living at White's Residential & Family Services, Wabash.  LuAnn was a member of Faith Harvest Fellowship, Wabash.  Her faith has always been unshakeable, her love for others is like no other, and she was the perfect example of the hands and feet of Jesus. LuAnn's heart was filled with love and she continued to praise her Savior even when her body was full of pain.  Her home had an open door and she and Bruce fostered over 70 kids over the years.  Simply put, LuAnn loved helping others.
