Mary Jane Yergler
Mary Jane Yergler, 87, went to be with her Lord Monday, March 23, 2020, at Parkview Regional Hospital in Fort Wayne. She was born February 2, 1933, in Adams County to William and Salome (Aeschliman) Fiechter. She was married June 21, 1953, at the Apostolic Christian Church to Claire E. Yergler. They resided in the Bluffton area for nearly 67 years.
She graduated from Berne-French High School in 1951. She worked at Franklin Electric for 40 years and grew to love and stay close to many of her co-workers. After retiring, she worked for Reed’s Do It Best, Masterson’s Clothing and with FamilyLife Care Hospice.
She was a member of the Apostolic Christian Church, and she loved her church family. Her greatest joy came from loving and serving her family and others. She was known for hosting large family gatherings every Sunday evening. Hospitality was her gift, and she used it well. Fixing meals and sending cards to so many filled her with great joy. She was at her best celebrating Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving and family birthdays. Her mission was to bring happiness to all those she loved. Countless and memorable trips were made to Gatlinburg, Tennessee with family and friends throughout the years. She loved her dear potluck friends who gathered together every month for the last 65 years.
She is survived by her husband; three daughters, Renee (Steve) Reinhard; Pam (John) Reinhard; and Angie (Dean) Topp, all of Bluffton; two brothers, Herman Fiechter; and Carl Fiechter; 12 grandchildren, Katie Isch; Stephanie Lantz; Annie Craighead; Chad Silva; Abby Aschliman; Michael Reinhard; Mark Reinhard; Ben Reinhard; Joel Reinhard; Alivia Isch, Marianna Topp; and Gavin Topp; and 32 great-grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Dorthy; and brother, Charles.
