On Thursday, May 21st, Annis Aumann went home to be with the Lord, finally succumbing to congestive heart failure. She ended her time on eart full of years and at peace. She was the daughter of Lawrence “Brownie” Hendershot and Betty Jo (McKinney) Hendershot; borrn on March 29, 1943 in Columbus, Indiana.

She was preceded into heaven by her husband of 42 years, Ekkehard Horst Lothar Aumann, and her older brother, Stephen Hendershot.

She is survived by her children and their spouses: Michael and Mindy Aumann, Tim and Ursela Trantham and Jonathon and Heather Aumann. Annis had 9 grandchildren: Jesse, Seth, Cassie, A.J., Erin, Alaric, Petra, Liam and Elias.

Annis’ remaining family include Paul Hendershot and his wife Nancy, James “Jimmy” Hendershot, her sisters-in-law: Sieglinde Pansby and Judy Hendershot, as well as her beloved sister, Juanita “Ruthie” Mullins. During Annis’ last weeks, Ruthie cared for Annis. That love and care has been worth more than gold to Annis and her kids.

During her life, she was a graduate of Northmont High School in Englewood, Ohio. She was a wife, mother, sister, daughter, business owner, skilled seamstress, and among other things the author of the book Helmets & Bonnets: The Blending of Two Cultures. Pictures from her life can be seen at

While we grieve the loss, we know right now that she’s safe in the presence of God, worshiping Him in joy.

I knew Annis through playing Words with her and on Facebook. She enjoyed my photos of my country Scotland and my wife’s stories and poems.
She told me she was dying and was quite prepared for it.

She was a charming opponent. I am sorry she didn’t manage her trip to Ireland, but that matters little now.

Eternal Rest grant unto her Oh Lord
And let perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in Peace.

we've been cousins first and friends second all our lives. She was 5 weeks younger than me. She included me in her book which I was honored to be her playtime/summertime buddy for years. Life got in the way of our physical closeness but not with our memories. I loved her as much as she loved me; she will not be forgotten in this old head of mine. Much love to the immediate family. You were so blessed to have her as Mom, Grandmother and Mentor. What a beautiful photo to share with the world.

I will always remember Annis as the "puzzle lady" because she and her good friend, Jeanette, were constantly working on the 1000 piece prettiest puzzles on a table right outside Annis' door.
