Helen Mosmeier

Earth lost a saint when Helen Mosmeier died at home on Tuesday, January 2, 2018, after a courageous battle with lung cancer. She was born as Helen Louise Reddert on July 26, 1922, at home on the farm where she was raised in Sunman, Indiana, and lived longer than she ever dreamed she would. She lived in the Sunman area all of her life except for a short detour in 1946 through Beech Grove, Indiana, after marrying her beloved husband, Edward Charles John Mosmeier, who died in 2005. Her son, William Edward Mosmeier (Bill); her parents, Daniel Lee Reddert and Sophia Zimmer Reddert and their siblings; her brother, Lee Reddert; and her dear friends Anna Marie Peters, Virginia Trautman, and Leola Fink also died before her.

Helen is survived by her daughter, Nancy Ann Mosmeier Phillips Roberson, and her husband, Bob Roberson; their daughter, Amy Cary and her husband, Marc Cary, and their children, London and Brooklyn Cary; Bill’s widow, Linda Mosmeier, and their children, Chris Mosmeier and his wife, Kathy Mosmeier, and their children, Baylie and Keifer Mosmeier; Vicky Jones and her husband, Brad Jones, and their children Jacob Cottrill and his wife Michaela Cottrill, Shelby Cottrill, Dalton Jones, and Ethan Jones; and Ami Sowers and her husband, Kevin Sowers, and their children, Andrew and Brianna Sowers; her nephew, Frederick John Reddert and his family; her niece Kathy Reddert; her niece Sharon Reddert and her children; her niece Juanita Reddert; special friends Viola Bruns, Marcia Bruns, Donna and John Kunkel, Lavonne and Tom Moorman, Kindra and Matt Maple and their children, Mary Ann and Bill Walker, the Weiler Family, her Sunman Community Church Family, and numerous other friends and family.

Helen was the Proverbs 31 “Virtuous Woman:” a kind, loving, intelligent, amazing, and gracious homemaker, wife, mother, grandmother, relative, and friend. She loved and faithfully served God through his people and at Sunman Community Church, where, at age one, she was a charter member. She gave her time, talent, and treasure to many people, organizations, and causes in the Sunman area and beyond. To finance her children’s college education, she went to work providing customer service at McPherson’s in Sunman in 1967 and retired 20 years later, having been a faithful employee and friend to many with whom she worked. She had the gift of hospitality and loved people, homemaking, gardening, shopping, reading, traveling, dogs, and cookies. Helen graduated from Sunman High School in 1940 and subsequently attended Christ Hospital School of Nursing in Cincinnati, Ohio, to become a nurse. Her greatest disappointment in life was not finishing nursing school, which, in her characteristic self-sacrificing way, she left to care for her dying mother and was unable to return.

Visitation will be from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 13, at Sunman Community Church, 304 West Vine Street, Sunman. The funeral service will immediately follow the visitation. At the service, you will have the opportunity to share a testimonial about Helen. Contributions instead of flowers may be given to Sunman Community Church.

Thank you to everyone who befriended and looked after Helen after Edward died and enabled Helen to live independently in her home until her death. Being at home meant everything to Helen. Helen is dearly loved and will be sorely missed. “Well done, good and faithful servant.” –Matthew 25:23.. “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” –Psalm 116:15.

The staff of Cook Rosenberger Funeral Home is honored to be handling the services for Helen Mosmeier.
