Roswitha Maria Munger, loving mother, grandmother & great-grandmother, of Fremont, Indiana went home to our Lord on April 6, 2021 after a long, hard fought battle with COPD.
She was born in Engers, Germany on June 15, 1935, to Erich and Therese Schiller. She married Karl L. Weiss and immigrated to the United States in 1961 but remained a German Citizen.  In 1978, she married Lynn Munger and was married to him until his passing.  
Roswitha was a seamstress by trade; but, also worked as a medical assistant when she lived in Germany.  After her move to the United States, she learned the English language.  She worked as a waitress at the Toll Road rest stop and the Holiday Inn.  After many years, she returned to her true calling, as a nurse’s aide at Cameron Hospital.  Rose had a love of nature, especially gardening and taking care of birds.  She was active in the Garden Club in the 60’s and set up bird feeders while at the Holiday Inn.  Roswitha was a long-time parishioner of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic Church. In her younger years, she was active in the Altar & Rosary Society and Bridge club. Of all her activities, the one that she was most proud of was her 32 years of Sobriety.

Elisabeth, I am so sorry for the loss of your Mother. No matter how prepared we think we may be, the shock and grief is tremendous. Let your sweet memories of your Mother comfort you in the days ahead and be kind to yourself. Sending love and comfort to you and all the family.

As you go forward from this day, know that your Mother is with you. Our Creator GOD is Divine Energy and all in creation is energy. To radiate love, light and the essence of our beings through our personal energy fields is such an amazing gift and blessing. All life is energy; Energy does not die or cease to be. It may transform and change and it is always present and is eternal. WE are all connected one to the other, whether we are physical beings or spirit. Know that Roswitha and the energy that manifested as her on this Earthly plane is with our Heavenly Creator now and is also with you and around you still.
