Posted August 17, 2020

Anna Mary (Martin) Kreider, 80, of Newmanstown, PA went to be with her Lord and Savior on Monday, August 17, 2020 after a massive stroke took her unexpectedly. She was the loving wife of Roy W. Kreider, with whom she shared 59 happy years.

Anna Mary was born on February 21, 1940, to the late Harvey W. and the late Lydia (Huber) Martin.

She will be greatly missed by her children, Joy (Steve Shirk) of Myerstown, PA, Clifford (Christine) of Myerstown, PA, Curvin (Mary Lee) of Squaw Valley, CA, David (Karen) of Newmanstown, PA, John (Kristina) of Newmanstown, PA, Mary Anne (Jesse Weaver) of Lebanon, PA, and Rosene (Dan Zimmerman) of Mt. Pleasant, MI. She cared deeply for each of her children, as well as her 29 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. She was a faithful member of Texter Mountain Mennonite Church.

She is survived by her sisters, Alta (David Schwartz), Esther (James Bange), and Susan (the late Raymond Zimmerman).

Anna Mary will always be remembered for her servant’s heart. She showed God’s love by sharing many meals with families and lending a sympathetic ear, always with an encouraging smile. She was known to be a faithful prayer warrior. Her vegetable and flower garden was among her favorite places to be.
