Ardythe D. "Mutz" Brunetto, 89, of Johnstown, was called home to be with the Lord on August 10, 2021.

Born on August 5, 1932 in Johnstown, eldest daughter of James V. and Geraldine S. (McGuire) Schellhammer.

Preceded in death by her parents, husband Joseph J. Brunetto, and siblings James, Donald "Chub", Glenn Schellhammer, and Eleanor Chromy. Also preceded in death by brothers and sisters-in-law on both sides of the family.

Survived by siblings Marlene Kleman, Eilene Sarlouis (Gary), Robert Schellhammer (Joyce), Donna Anderson, Frank Schellhammer, and Richard Schellhammer.

She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews on both sides of the family.

Mutz graduated from Franklin High School, Class of 1952. She worked at W.T. Grant Company, United Metals, and recently retired from the Johnstown Tribune Democrat in April of 2018.

Mutz was a longtime member of Franklin Street United Methodist Church. She taught Sunday school and also did mission work, traveling to Haiti helping Grace Children's Hospital.

She served on the Cambria County Board of elections at the Cover Hill precinct for over 30 years. She was an active member of the Cambria County Ladies Auxiliary and the Cover Hill Fire Company Ladies Auxiliary. She belonged to the ISDA Lodge 214.

She was everyone's "Aunt Mutz" and will truly be missed. If you are reading this, you probably received a card and/or cards from her at one time or another. She loved sending cards to let you know that she cared. She loved to cook and feed as many people as she could with the extras. She would always be the 1st to help anyone, expecting nothing in return. She loved traveling and going places. No matter what she was doing, it could wait so she could go with you. She loved her family, neighbors, and friends.
