Celesta Ann “Dutch” Stillwagon Falter

March 12, 1922 ‒ May 13, 2015

Mount Vernon, Ohio

Celesta Ann “Dutch” Stillwagon Falter, age 93, of Mount Vernon passed away on Wednesday, May 13, 2015 at the Country Court Nursing Home after a long tough battle and the recent loss of her devoted son Bill.

She was born on March 12, 1922 in Hartford City, Indiana to the late Rene and Helen (Everhart) Joris. Dutch was employed and retired from Weyerhauser with over twenty three years of service. She enjoyed traveling, bowling and a good game of euchre in her younger days. As time passed she loved to spend time with her only grandson Zach and seldom missed one of his gams, no matter what type ball was involved or if the game was home or away. She also liked to knit and dine out with her late son Bill. Special occasions would mean the entire family would gather at her favorite restaurant, Red Lobster, for the seafood catch of the day.

She is survived by her daughter Cynthia “Sam” (Dave) Gorsuch of Gambier; and her grandson Zachary (Erin Conkle) Gorsuch of Gambier.

Besides her parents Dutch was preceded in death by her first husband William Stillwagon; her second husband Phillip Falter; her son William L. Stillwagon; and her brother Rene Joris Jr.

Friends may call on Monday from 12 – 1PM at the Flowers-Snyder Funeral Home. A service will follow beginning at 1PM with Rev. Marvin Haught officiating. Burial will be held in Mound View Cemetery.

Memorial Contributions may be made to Hospice of Knox County.
