September 22, 2018

Dorothy L. Aemisegger, 83, went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Saturday September 22, 2018.  She was born to Isaac and Martha Branscome, May 31st, 1935 on her grandmother’s homestead in Eureka.  Dorothy’s siblings were Harbert, David, Berdett, Joan, Adeline, Sharon, Jimmy and Shirley. 

On May 18th 1954 she married Howard Aemisegger of Fortine.  Dorothy loved her family.  They were blessed with four children: Marsha, David, Jo Ann and Penny who preceded her in death.  She enjoyed cooking and all kinds of crafts.  She even made both of her daughter’s wedding gowns.  Dorothy loved the Lord.  She served many churches across the country with her husband Howard by her side with the Laborers For Christ.  She cooked for more people then you can count.  This is one of the many ways she showed her love to her family and friends.  She was an amazing cook and seamstress, a true blessing.

Dorothy is survived by her husband Howard of 64 years; children Marsha Schafer and Mike; David Aemisegger and Marcia; and Jo Ann Brock; seven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren; sister Sharon Marthy, sister in-laws Sharon and Georgia Branscome; also many nephews, nieces, and friends.

The family is deeply grateful for the out pouring of love that Dorothy received through Home Options Hospice, her wonderful friends that helped her, and her family through this terrible battle cancer.  The family was blessed by all the prayers from friends and family as they felt an amazing peace and love through the whole passing of such an amazing mother and wife. 

Memorial services will be held at Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Eureka at 11:00 am Friday September 28th, 2018. Pastor Tabbert will be officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that you donate to Home Options Hospice in her name.  Schnackenberg Funeral Home is caring for Dorothy and her family.
