Karen Nofziger Obituary
Karen Nofziger, of Souderton PA, daughter of Dean and Janeth Nofziger, was born on March 12, 1959 in Norristown PA. She died suddenly on Sunday, December 29, 2013, while on Christmas vacation in Wauseon, Ohio. She was a 1977 graduate of Pettisville High School; a 1981 graduate of Goshen College with a BA Degree in Education; she later acquired a master's degree in Math Education as well as attending classes at Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary (Elkhart, IN). Karen taught 6th and 8th grade math at Penn View Christian School in Souderton, PA for 32 years. She also served various roles as a member of Souderton Mennonite Church. She was very knowledgeable about computers and often helped people out of jams when their computers malfunctioned. After hours, Karen kept stats for soccer and basketball games. However, Karen was not only a math teacher, she also was creative. Karen knew how to crochet, knit, and quilt and did that with her students at school and also did that while on summer vacations with her nieces and nephews. She spent time each summer volunteering at Care and Share, a thrift store in Archbold Ohio. Karen is survived by her parents and three siblings: Brenda (Rod) Short, Janelle (Grant) Martin, and Greg (Jodi) Nofziger. Her niece Clarissa Short preceded her in death in 2008. Seven nieces and nephews also survive: Ashley (Mike) Zimmerman, Lucas Nofziger, Kaitlin Nofziger, Arrin Short, Eddie Martin, Justin Nofziger, and Anita Martin. Dalton Zimmerman is Karen's sole great nephew. Many friends and students whose lives she touched throughout her teaching career will greatly miss Karen. A memorial service is planned at Souderton Mennonite Church at 4:00 pm on January 18, 2014. Suggested memorials are Care and Share Thrift Shop, Archbold OH, Penn View Christian School, Souderton, PA or to donors choice.
