Obituary

Lottie Colleen Bammerlin, 79, Akron, Indiana, passed away unexpectedly on June 10, 2022, at Lutheran Hospital of Indiana in Fort Wayne. The daughter of Ezra B. and Gertrude (Doub) Lipply, Lottie was born in Warsaw on September 28, 1942.

After graduating from Laketon High School in 1960, Lottie worked at Heckman Bindery until she married Paul Lyle Bammerlin on August 2, 1964. She then worked on their farm doing whatever job needed to be done. She was a woman of grit and determination who could seemingly do anything, especially when facing a challenge. From mowing and cooking to raising baby calves, Lottie was simply an inspiration to her daughters, Beth and Betsy. An accomplished seamstress, Lottie made both of her daughters’ wedding dresses. She also made wedding gowns, flower girl dresses, and clothing for others in her community.

Lottie lived by her three Fs: Faith, Family, and Flowers. Her faith in her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ carried her through the tough times in life, especially the loss of her husband, Paul Lyle, after forty-two years of marriage. Lottie was a member of Packerton United Methodist Church and attended there faithfully until the start of Covid. Her second F, family, gave her a true purpose to strive to be the best she possibly could. Lottie relished in her time spent with each daughter, grandchild, family member, and friend. Finally, she was passionate about her flowers and enjoyed the beauty and color that they brought to her life.

The loving memory of Lottie Bammerlin will be forever cherished by her daughters, Beth Colleen (Wayne) Landis, Mentone and Betsy Jane (Andy) Weaver, Claypool; grandchildren, Zachary and Jeremiah Landis and Joshua and Johnathon Weaver; sister-in-law, Janet Lipply; several nephews and a niece; and the close classmates of Laketon High School class of 1960. Lottie was preceded in death by her parents, Ezra and Gertrude Lipply; husband, Paul Lyle Bammerlin; and brother, Maurice Lipply.
