Esther Ruth Katherine (Geisel) Sundell, 86 of Seymour, formerly of Mooresville, IN passed away on Friday, January 14, 2022 at The Lutheran Community Home. She was born November 25, 1935 in Regina Saskatchewan Canada to the late Edgar Harry and Alvina (Orb) Geisel. Esther was married to Charles (Chuck) Walter Sundell on May 11, 1957 at First Lutheran Church, Windsor, Ontario, Canada and celebrated 61 years of marriage before Chuck’s passing in 2018. Esther received her education in Windsor, Canada, finishing at JL Foster Secondary and then completed a yearlong secretarial course. She worked in Minnesota as a buyer at the former Dicomed and retired as church secretary at Good Shepherd Lutheran. They spent most of their married life in Minnesota and retired to Indiana. Esther is preceded in death by her parents, and step sister Judy Geisel. Surviving to cherish her memory are son, Scott (Karen) Sundell of Indiana, daughters, Susan (Jim) Schurman and Stacy (Mike) Winter of Minnesota, grandchildren, Amy Sundell, Michael Sundell, Jake Schurman and Grace Winter. Esther’s brother Ralph Geisel, Sister Betty Fenzl and best friend Faylyn Maninna of Canada, and other family members. They dedicated their lives to sharing the gospel of Christ with their family and anyone who would listen. We have no doubt they heard His word and His promise. "Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your Master's happiness." Matthew 25:21. We celebrate their triumphant entrance into heaven and find comfort that they are now with Jesus.
