    • CRESSMAN, Laura (Mrs. Eden M.) - It is with a sense of joy and sorrow that we announce the passing of our beloved mother to her Heavenly Home. Laura (Dettwiler) Cressman, in her 103rd year, of Chateau Gardens, Elmira, died peacefully on Friday, October 17, 2008. She has gone to join her dear husband, Eden Cressman (1975) and infant daughter, Beatrice (1934). She was the mother of Naomi and Milt Shoemaker of Elmira, Mary and Marshall Musselman of St. Jacobs, Violet Martin of Floradale, Calvin and Janice Cressman of Elmira. She was the proud grandmother to three generations of grandchildren. She is also survived by many of her extended family. She was predeceased by her parents, A.K. and Veronica (Sauder) Dettwiler; two brothers, Enos Dettwiler and Rev. Reuben Dettwiler; two sisters, Sevilla Dettwiler and Annie Ramer; three brothers in infancy; three great-grandchildren; and son-in-law, Lloyd Martin. Laura's family will receive friends and relatives at the Elmira Mennonite Church on Monday, October 20, 2008 from 10 a.m. until time of funeral service at 2 p.m. with Pastor Steven Janzen and Pastor Renee Sauder officiating, followed by interment in the St. Jacobs Mennonite Cemetery. In her memory, donations to Mennonite Central Committee or Chateau Gardens Auxiliary would be appreciated by the family as expressions of sympathy. We would like to express our sincere appreciation to the staff of Chateau Gardens for the love and compassion they gave our mother during the years she spent there. It was much appreciated. Arrangements entrusted to the Dreisinger Funeral Home , Elmira.
