Nelda N. Jeuther, age 90, of Saxonburg, formerly of Mars, passed away on Monday morning, October 4, 2021 in the comfort of her home with her family by her side.

Born in Tarentum, PA on December 1, 1930, she was the daughter of the late George William and Bonnie Lynn Elza Shaffer.

Her passion was family and for many years she had everyone home for Sunday dinner. When she wasn't cooking she could be found cheering on her husband, Al, at the local tractor pulls.  All of her grandchildren and great grandchildren lovingly referred to her as "Gug".

Nelda had been a bus driver for A.J. Myers and Sons at the Mars School District.

She was a member of the Gospel Fellowship PCA Church in Middlesex Township, where for years she sang in the choir and helped the children make porcelain dolls during the Christian Recreation Program.

Nelda enjoyed sewing and made many beautiful quilts for her family and friends.  

Surviving are her husband to whom she would have been married for 73 years on October 9th, Albert G. Jeuther, three daughters, Colleen Thosteson of Butler, Robin Shemela (Ron) of Mars and Becky Hughes (Bill) of Slippery Rock, ten grandchildren and 33 great grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her brothers, Lillard W., George D., and Jack L. Shaffer.

The family is grateful for the support of Concordia Visiting Nurses and Good Samaritan Hospice.

Friends will be received on Thursday, October 7, 2021 from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM at Gospel Fellowship PCA Church, 161 McFann Rd. Valencia, PA 16059, where services will be held at 1:00 PM.
