Mrs. Gotshall and the Amstutz family were instrumental in the founding (starting) and naming of Camp Luz in Orrville, Ohio. She loved to travel and see God's scenery and wonders. She traveled once around the world, stopping in India, and later in life traveled to South America and Europe seeing some of her relatives. She also went on many cruises - Caribbean, Panama Canal, Alaska, Hawaii, and Columbia River.
