Wallace William Ramsier of Jeromesville, passed away late Saturday evening, November 6, 2021, at Arbors of Mifflin at the age of 98.

He was born December 19, 1922, in Sterling, Ohio, one of nine children of the late Elizabeth (Bachman) and Benjamin Franklin Ramsier. He grew up in the Apostolic Faith and was a member of the Apostolic Christian Church on Illinois Avenue where he was involved with Harvest Call. He completed several mission trips to many destinations including Haiti, Jamaica and the Dominican Republic. Wallace served on the Gateway Woods Children's Home Board in Indiana. His servant's heart called him to volunteer at Galilean's Children's Home in Kentucky.

Wallace was a veteran of the U.S. Army and was a self-employed dairy farmer. Over a span of 25 years, he had refurbished 850 sewing machines which he converted to treadle machines where they could be used in third world countries. He completed his last machine turnover in 2019. He loved helping others and would use his vacations to visit family. His children and grandchildren were his greatest joys and he prayed for all of them.

He is survived by ten children, Karen (Pete) Baltic, Darlene (Larry) Enderle, Jeff (Cheri) Ramsier, Deb (Don) Jones, Cliff (Lynn) Ramsier, Jolene Ramsier, Brenda (Wayne) Herrmann, Joyce (Milan) Germaine, Carol (Lonnie) Browne and Todd (Stephanie) Ramsier; twenty-six grandchildren; forty-six great-grandchildren; seven great-great grandchildren; two sisters-in-law, Inez Ramsier and Dorothy Ramsier; and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 58 years, Helen J. Oesch Ramsier, whom he married on September 30, 1944; son, Brad Ramsier; daughter, Marcia Ramsier; great-grandson, Trevor Beer; four sisters; and four brothers.

The family will receive friends from 4:00-7:00 p.m. Friday, November 12, 2021, at the Ontario Home of Wappner Funeral Directors, 100 S. Lexington-Springmill Road. The funeral service will be held on Saturday at 10:00 a.m. at the Apostolic Christian Church, 84 N. Illinois Avenue, Mansfield. He will be laid to rest beside his wife in Apostolic Christian Cemetery, Rittman, Ohio, at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday.
