Obituary

Lloyd Rutt Horst

Lloyd Rutt Horst, 93, went to his home in Glory on November 24, 2022.  Born on March 15, 1929 in East Earl, PA to Harry S. Horst and Elizabeth Rutt Horst.  On January 4, 1950 he was married to Elverta J. Hostetter of Gap, PA.  Lloyd was chosen by lot to become a pastor at the age of 27.  He was ordained into ministry on December 26, 1956.  His years of ministry included 13 years at Hartman Street Mennonite, York, PA; 12 years at Slate Hill Mennonite, Camp Hill, PA; 6 years at Faith Mennonite, Oxford, NJ; and 4 years at Crest Hill Mennonite, Wardensville, WV.  He officially retired from the ministry in June 1995 after 38 years of faithful service.  Lloyd and Elverta had eight children: Mervin D. Horst married to Lois Brubaker, Fort Mill, SC; Darrel D. Horst married to Teena Enterline, York, PA; Gerald L. Horst married to Leona Rondeau (deceased), York, PA; Susie K. Kanagy married to Arlen Kanagy, Lenoir, NC; Laverne R. Horst married to Joan Shellehamer, Dillsburg, PA;  Judy F. Peterson married to Michael Peterson, Nappanee, IN; Mary J. Leaman married to Paul Leaman, Harrisonburg, VA; and H. Steven Horst married to Brenda Lantzy, Landisville, PA.  Lloyd had a total of 26 grandchildren, and 25 great grandchildren. 

Lloyd had a green thumb and enjoyed sharing his abundance with others! He provided for his family by working various jobs.  Family memories of working together include helping him in the garden, preparing the chicken house for new chicks and then catching grown chickens for transport, the cleaning of various businesses, and a few of the children even remember him as their school bus driver.  Lloyd and Elverta poured their love and service into their family, the church, and everyone they met. The family will miss their presence, love, and humor, but it was always their greatest desire to be at home with their Lord and Savior. To God be the Glory!

Preceding him in death were his wife, Elverta; his sister, Edith Hollinger and her husband, Lloyd; and his brother, Roy Horst. He is survived by his foster sister, June Forry of Cary, NC.
