GUTWEIN - Anna W. (nee Gutwein) Muller, age 90, of Lansdale, died peacefully Sunday July 4, 2021, at her residence. She was the wife of Mathias K. Muller. The couple celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary on October 21, 2020.
She was born on October 30, 1930, in the German community of Palanka in the former Yugoslavia along the Danube River to the late Anton and Anna (Deitz) Gutwein. On October 15, 1944, at the age of 13, Anna left Palanka as a result of World War II. After the end of the war, Anna reunited with her family in Germany. At the age of 19, Anna immigrated to the United States with her parents, older brother, sister-in-law and nephew and arrived in New York on the Queen Elisabeth on December 7, 1949. Anna’s family was sponsored by family living in Detroit, Michigan where they first lived when they arrived in the United States. After arriving in Detroit,
Anna worked as a nanny for an American family and learned the English language from the children she cared for. On October 21, 1950, Anna married Mathias K. Muller, whom she knew from Palanka and reconnected with in Germany after the end of World War II. The couple was married in Lebanon, Pennsylvania and lived in Lebanon with Mathias’s family after the wedding.
In the early 1950’s, Anna and Mathias moved to Hatfield, Pennsylvania. Their daughter, Helen, and son, Mathias, were born in Lansdale, Pennsylvania. Anna and Mathias built their home in Lansdale in 1955 where they lived together for 65 years. Anna became a citizen of the United States on December 19, 1957, and was a longtime member of St. Stanislaus Parish and later attended Mass at The Landing of Towamencin where she resided.
Anna was an accomplished seamstress, quilter, cross-stitcher and crotchetier. She was also an excellent baker and enjoyed making and sharing desserts. Using her skills as meticulous housekeeper, Anna was employed cleaning other people’s homes. After her husband’s retirement, they enjoyed traveling with other seniors and saw much of the United States including Alaska and Hawaii. She also enjoyed reading and in her later years was an avid jigsaw puzzler. Anna had a quiet and generous personality and was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Grammy, as her granddaughters and great-grandsons called her, loved being surrounded by
her family, serving family dinners, and making special treats for others to enjoy.
In addition to her husband, Mathias K. Muller, she is survived by her daughter, Helen I. Moyer and her husband, Paul, of Lansdale and son, Mathias A. Muller and his wife, Melanie, of Line Lexington; two granddaughters: Paula (Moyer) Musgnung and husband, Matthew, and Lara (Moyer) Timblin and husband, Aaron; and four great-grandsons: Lucas Timblin, Caden Timblin, William Musgnung and Ryan Musgnung. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Joseph Gutwein and Anton Gutwein.
