   Minerva N. Ulrich, 96, of Lititz, died peacefully in her residence on Monday, November 28, 2022 at Landis Homes. Born in Neffsville, she was the daughter of the late Harry L. and Erna A.

She was an active and faithful member of the former Manheim Mennonite Church, where she was secretary and treasurer of their sewing circle for many years and served on the kitchen committee. She was also a faithful volunteer for Landis Homes. Her interests included: cross stitching, embroidery, and traveling. Minerva had a deep passion and love for her family; and cherished all the time she could spend with her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

   The family wishes to thank the staff of Hospice and Community Care for the faithful and compassionate care given to Minerva during her illness.

  Surviving are two sons: Robert L. husband of Jane Ulrich of Montoursville, Dale E. husband of Joyce Ulrich of Manheim, two daughters, Doris J. wife of Pastor Marlin Ebersole of Chambersburg, Rose M. wife of Carl Weber of Lebanon, 10 grandchildren, 43 great grandchildren, and 14 great great grandchildren.
