Esther W. Lehman

November 6, 1925 — April 5, 2014

Esther W. Lehman, 88, of Manheim, went to her Heavenly Home on Saturday, April 5, 2014 at Hospice & Community Care, Mount Joy. Born in Rapho Township, she was the daughter of the late Walter and Daisy White Hosler. Esther was the loving wife of Wilbur G. Lehman and they would have celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary in June. A member of East Fairview Church of the Brethren, Manheim for more than 50 years, Esther served as a Trustee, Deaconess, taught Sunday School, sang in the choir, took part in the Sewing Circle and supported her husband with his ministry. She enjoyed gardening, sewing, and knitting. Esther had a servant’s heart, helping others by volunteering at Brethren Village and Pleasant View Retirement Community, and cooking and delivering for Meals on Wheels in the Manheim area. One of her favorite things was having the family all home for dinner.

Surviving in addition to her husband are two daughters, Barbara wife of W. Barry Earhart of Manheim, Cyndi Shoffstall of Lancaster, and a son, W. Gary husband of Ruby E. Lehman of Manheim, nine grandchildren, two step grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren, three step great grandchildren, a brother, Galen Hosler of Lancaster, and two sisters, Orpha Foreman and Grace Myer both of Manheim. Preceding her in death are four brothers, Stanley, Paul, Mark, and Marlin Hosler and three sisters, Ruth Haldeman, Amelia Buckwalter, Naomi Hollinger, and a daughter-in-law, Kay Lehman.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend her memorial service at East Fairview Church of the Brethren, 1187 Fairview Road, Manheim on Sunday, April 13, 2014 at 3:00 PM.
