My dear mom, Edith Baumgartner, passed away on Friday, March 29, 2019. Please join our family and friends at a service to celebrate her life on Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 4 p.m. here at Timothy Lutheran Church. The service will be joyous and filled with song and scripture. Please also join us for dinner in the church gymnasium for supper following the service. There is nothing my mom appreciated more…worshiping her Lord and Savior and enjoying a meal with family and friends. God bless,
