Susan Elise and Enoch James Einwechter
Susan Elise Einwechter, born June 5, 2010 and Enoch James Einwechter, born Jan.17, 2014, went to be with the Lord Monday, Feb. 24, 2014, after a tragic accident involving the vehicle they were in rolling into a Tennessee pond.
They are the daughter and son of Jonathan and Monique Einwechter of Lititz, who are members of Immanuel Free Reformed Church in Schoeneck.
Elise was such a joy in the Einwechter family, singing, skipping, dancing and giving hugs and kisses to many. She loved to talk about Jesus, “read” the Bible, pray, and be a little mother to her three younger brothers, as well as help in the kitchen. On Monday morning Feb. 24, 2014, she confidently told a friend she was going to heaven. And she did – within 15 hours.
Enoch’s sweet, quiet disposition and wide-eyed inquisitiveness at the world around him endeared him to all who came in contact with him. He was adored by his older siblings who loved to smother him in kisses. He was just starting to smile and coo at his loving family when he went to be with His Lord.
The Einwechter little children will be missed by hundreds who have been touched by their short lives. Their parents especially miss them but are sure Jesus is taking care of them now.
“The precious time we had with them has been worth all this pain!” &tstr;Jonathan and Monique.
In addition to their parents, the children are survived by their two brothers: Jon David, age 2 and Titus, age 1; maternal grandparents: Joe and Brenda Hoffman; paternal grandparents: William and Linda Einwechter; great-grandparents: Paul and Alma Martin, Dorothy Einwechter, Tina Hoffman, Helen Crawford; paternal aunts and uncles: Nelson and Sarah Phero, Benjamin and Karen Francis, Abigail Einwechter, Benjamin Einwechter, Josiah Einwechter, Isaac Einwechter, Philip Einwechter, Timothy Einwechter and Esther Einwechter and maternal aunts and uncles: Joe and Carrie Hoffman, Samuel Hoffman, Noah Hoffman, Timothy Hoffman, Benjamin Hoffman, David Hoffman and Victoria Hoffman.
A viewing will be held March 6, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. at the Ephrata Church of the Brethren, 201 Cresent Ave., Ephrata, followed by their funeral service at 6 p.m, with Pastors William Einwechter and Chris Oberholtzer officiating. A graveside service will be held March 7 at 11:30 a.m., in the Welsh Run Church of the Brethren Cemetery, Mercersburg.
