Ida S. Horvatich (nee Yuhasz), 99 of Amherst, peacefully went home to be
with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Sunday, February 6, 2022 after a
brief illness.

moved to Amherst in 1959 and resided there for the remainder of her life.

assisted her husband John with conducting military honors for the Disabled
American Veterans where John served as chaplain for nine years.  She was a
life member of the Disabled American Veterans Ladies Auxiliary and
volunteered at Amherst Hospital for 25 years.  She was a life member of the
Hungarian Reformed Church in Lorain, a member of St. Paul Lutheran Church in
Amherst, and a former member of St. Peter's United Church of Christ in
Amherst.  She was active in many of the organizations within the churches.
Ida enjoyed gardening, reading, cooking, baking, mailing occasional cards
filled with surprises, and enjoyed blessing family and friends with
practical everyday essential items.

Survivors include her daughters Charlotte Ramirez (Max deceased) of Elyria
