Mamie Springer

June 15, 1942 ~ September 29, 2020 (age 78)



Mamie was born into a large and loving family, being one of 21 children. On September 24, 2020, Mamie departed this life in the comfort of her home surronded by her family.

Mamie moved to Fort Wayne Indiana in 1962 where she met and married her husband of 56 years David Springer. A devoted mother of four children-Gloria, Anthony, Sherwin and Dennis-Mamie’s love and commitment to her family was the most important part of her life. This love was passed on to her seven grandchildren of whom were her pride and joy and were a constant part of her daily conversations. Forever the proud grandmother her smile said it all. She loved to spend time with family laughing while sharing stories of times past.

In June of 1970 Mamie devoted her life to serving her Lord and Savior Jehovah by being baptized as a Jehovah’s Witness. With that commitment to Jehovah she dedicated her life to serving others and the teachings of Jehovah. Those who knew Mamie remember her as being genuine, kind, generous, precious and loving to all with both a smile and laugh that could light up the room. A village mother to so many, all were welcome in her home. She provided gentle counsel to those in need. Sometimes a simple...”you got that right” from her seemed to solve it all!

Mamie retired for Flashfold Carton Inc. in 2004 in order to spend more time with family. Loving the simpler things in life, you could often find her sitting in her back yard on her favorite swing enjoying the weather and great conversation or taking care of her plants and flowers.

Mamie will be will be missed by all, but she has left us with a legacy of loving memories for all to carry daily.
