Mary Sensenig

Mary Sensenig lived with my sister, Carol, for more than twenty years. She was with our family so much she left like our step-sister. We will miss her when we get together and her place is empty.
Mary had cancer, was treated, and had five more cancer-free years. A year ago it came back. She fought bravely on and continued to work as much as she was able. Then the cancer attacked her brain and three weeks after she went to work for the last time, she was gone. Her faith and her smile remained constant to the end. Her last words before she sank into her last sleep were an expression of appreciation for all that people were doing for her. Mary showed us how to live and how to die. See you later, Mary.

Mary Esther Sensenig, 50, entered the presence of her Lord and Savior on Friday, May 8, 2015. She died peacefully in her home. She will be lovingly remembered by her family.
Born in Ephrata, she was a daughter of Melvin G. and the late Margaret W. (Hurst) Sensenig.
Mary was a diligent employee of Conestoga Wood Specialties, East Earl, for eight years, last working on April 20, 2015. She enjoyed hiking, music, and sharing her life with 23 nieces and nephews and their families. She was known for her caring spirit and her ability to encourage and cheer on others. She was also a faithful member of Living Water Fellowship, Reinholds.
In addition to her father, Mary is survived by a stepmother, Elma H. Sensenig; four sisters: Arlene, wife of Paul K. Landis, of Ephrata, Verna, wife of George Kardos, of New Holland, Gloria, wife of Warren Martin, of Mt. Pleasant Mills, and Geraldine, wife of Clair B. Good, of Denver; and long-time friend, Dr. Carol R. Burkholder. She was preceded in death by her mother and a brother-in-law, John Sensenig.
Funeral services will be held on Thursday, May 14, at 2:00 PM at Martindale Mennonite Church, 171 Hurst Rd., Ephrata, PA 17522. Interment will be in the adjoining cemetery. Viewing will be held on Wednesday, May 13, from 5-9 PM at the church and 1 hour prior to funeral services.

The Christian mourns the loss of a loved one, but we have the hope of that great reunion with each other and the Lord! This is a lovely post, and I am sorry to hear of her passing.
