Obituary

With deep sadness, the family of Douglas T. Yoder, 61, of Elverson, announces his passing on Saturday, January 25, 2020 at his home.

He was the son of the late Thomas S. and Fannie (Kurtz) Yoder.

Doug was a lifelong farmer and a member of Zion Mennonite Church.

Surviving are three sisters: Linda married to Glen Hostetler, Edmonton, Alberta, Canada, Anna Lucille “Lucy” married to Glenn Weber, Mohnton, and Loretta married to George Ostojic, Montreal, Quebec, Canada; nephews Justin, Julian and Jeremy Weber, Josh Hostetler and niece Rachel Kaechele, and thirteen grand-nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a sister Rose L. Yoder.

Doug loved nature and also enjoyed hunting and hiking. He was a kind and caring person, often helping those in need. One of his joys was taking his grand-nieces and nephews for rides on his tractor.

His funeral will be held on Saturday, February 1, 2020 at 2 p.m. at Zion Mennonite Church, 582 Zion Rd., Birdsboro. A viewing will be held at the church on Saturday from Noon until 2 p.m. Interment will be in the adjoining church cemetery.

I’m so shocked of Doug’s passing. He was a kind and gentle soul. We bought hay and straw from him for years. He even gave my son a job and his first taste of raising cattle. I remember him as a hard worker, always helping those in need. He will forever be in my family’s hearts. God rest his soul, he is now with his mom and dad and sister.

Doug hayed our farm for many years and plowed our drive when we were snowed in. He was a gentle kind person, and very generous with his precious time. He is missed now and will be. May he be lifted up and find eternal peace.
