Arthetta Carolyn Koerber, 79, Batesville, died Thursday morning, June 9, 2016.
The daughter of John Edward Baldwin and Eloise Lavinia Baldwin, Louisville, Kentucky, was born Nov. 20, 1936.
She graduated from Ahrens Trade School in 1954 and was employed as a legal secretary.
She was the loving wife of Clement J. Koerber Sr. for 59 years and is survived by four children: Clement J. Koerber Jr. (Jerry and Tomoko), Denver, Eileen S. (John) Gutzwiller, Batesville, Diane (William) Miller, Maryville, Tennessee, and Denice (Mike) Hinderberger, Reno, Nevada; brother Donald (Susie) Baldwin, Seattle; grandchildren Joshua Gutzwiller; Jennifer Wirrig; Nathan Koerber; Luke, Anna and Leah Miller; Jada and Jared Hinderberger; and great-grandchildren Wyatt and Caroline Gutzwiller and Waylon Wirrig.
Church, family, friends and pets occupied her time. As a member of Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, Cincinnati, for 41 years, she enjoyed worship, fellowship and choir. When two of her local grandchildren were preschoolers, she provided day care and then volunteered in the lunch room and library of the primary school when they started school. Though it was not intended to be an animal rescue, her country home was at one time the residence of as many as 30 stray animals.
Visitation will be held Tuesday, June 14, from 4-7 p.m. at Weigel Funeral Home and Wednesday, June 15, from 4:30-6 p.m. at Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church, 11981 Pippin Road, Cincinnati. Funeral services follow at 6 p.m. with the Rev. Alex Groth officiating. A graveside service will be held at 11 a.m. Thursday, June 16, at St. Paul's Cemetery, Crossroads. The family requests memorials to the Life Issues Institute or Beautiful Savior Lutheran Church Building Fund.
