Florence Yoder Baumgarten

Nov. 12, 1916-March 18, 2013

— AUSTIN, Texas — Florence Yoder Baumgarten, 96, passed away March 18.  

She was born in a farmhouse outside Wakarusa in 1916, the second child of Oscar and Hazel Davidhizar.

She was preceded in death by husbands, Lester O. Yoder and Carl Baumgarten, and five brothers and three sisters.

A 1935 graduate of Goshen High School, she lived in Maywood, Ill., for a few years after marrying Lester, and spent many years in Goshen, followed by a stay in Sebring, Fla., with second husband, Carl. She moved to southern Indiana after Carl’s death and finally on to Austin, Texas, so she could see more of her great grandson.

Florence is survived by her son, Douglas (Sheryl) Yoder, Austin; a grandson, Kent (Kristina) Yoder and their son, Kieran Daniel, Austin; a granddaughter, Shelley Yoder, Louisville, Ky.; a brother, Richard Davidhizar, Elkhart; and a sister, Pauline McGaffey, Fort Myers, Fla.

A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. Monday at Plymouth United Church of Christ, Goshen, followed by the internment of ashes at Violett Cemetery.  

Yoder-Culp Funeral Home, Goshen, is assisting the family with services.
