Jocelyn Ann (Schwartz) Blum, 76, of Fort Wayne, IN, went to her heavenly home on Saturday, November 3, 2018, after a brief illness. Born April 22, 1942, in Berne, IN, Jocelyn was a wife of godly character, a caring, loving, and encouraging mother and grandmother, a devoted sister and sister-in-law, and a loyal friend.

Jocelyn graduated from Berne French High School in 1960 and Lutheran School of Nursing in 1963. She married James Blum, also of Berne, on Sept. 5, 1964. She spent most of her career as an office nurse for Victor Moeller, M.D. In her quiet, warm way, she cared for many over the years in that setting.

Jocelyn was an active member with her husband of First Missionary Church, The Chapel, and Emmanuel Community Church. She loved to sing in choir, study the Bible, and support missionaries.

She is survived by her husband, James Blum; her daughters, Jennifer (Bob) Nahrstadt, and Joan (Bill) Doran; grandchildren Michael (Sarah) Nahrstadt, Drew Doran, and Mikayla Doran; and sister, Amy (Ken) Troutman.
