St. John's Presbyterian Church - Memorial Service for Ann Quiser in the sanctuary at 3 pm this Wednesday - February 2, 2011

Our sympathy and prayers are with the family of Ardell Stimson upon the death of her mother, Ann Quiser. A memorial service for Ann will be held in the sanctuary at 3 pm this Wednesday, February 2, 2011, with a reception to follow in McPhail Hall. The family invites all who are able to attend.

Ann Sivia Kumala Quiser, age 96, died Wednesday, January 27, 2011 at Holly Hall Christian Retirement Community in Houston, Texas. She had been a resident of Holly Hall Christian Retirement Community for ten years, eight months and twenty-seven days. She died one day short of her ninety-seventh birth. Ann was born in Virginia, Minnesota on 1-28-1914 to Axel and Susanna Kumala. She married George Quiser in 1931.

She is survived by a daughter, Ardell Stimson, Houston, Texas and a son, David Quiser of Cook, Minnesota. She was preceded in death by her son Myron and his wife Lorna, and three brothers and two sisters. She has eight grandchildren and thirteen great grandchildren.

Ann took pleasure in her Finnish heritage and the ability to speak, write and read this difficult language and made several trips to Finland to connect with her Finnish roots.

For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to throw away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8)
