Obituary of Ada Hartsock
Ada Hartsock, 95, of Hamilton, Missouri, formerly of rural Ionia, Mo., died Thursday afternoon, November 12, 2020, at Hamilton Hill Crest Manor & Rehabilitation. Ada was born February 28, 1925, in Red Bird, Nebraska, the daughter of Frank James Spinar and Janie Melvina (Witherwax) Spinar. She was united in marriage with John Edwin Hartsock, Jr. on October 11, 1948, in O’Neil, Nebraska. John preceded her in death on September 14, 2012. Ada chose to serve God at an early age and was faithful to that choice for the remainder of her life. Ada’s family and church family were especially important to her. She and John considered it a privilege to host both in their home and they appreciated the fellowship that resulted in those times together. She enjoyed every part of farm life and was a help-mate to John on the family farm. She found her yard and flowers to be a great source of relaxation. Also, many of us were the recipients of the fruits of her labor in her vegetable gardens. Survivors include a son, Arlyn Hartsock (Teresa), Versailles, Mo.; a daughter, Elinor Burnett (Paul), Hamilton, Mo; 9 grandchildren; numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; nieces, nephews, great-nieces, great-nephews, cousins, and extended family. In addition to her parents and her husband John, she was preceded in death by a son, Edwin Hartsock; a grandson, Charles Burnett; grand-son-in-law, Shaun Heether; 2 great-grandsons, Remington Hancock and Dane Hartsock; 3 brothers, Elvin Spinar, Harold Spinar, and Harry Spinar; and a sister, Betty June Spinar.
