Besides her children she leaves 58 grandchildren, 8 gr-grandchildren, 4 brothers, 2 sisters & many other relatives & friends. Since her marriage she has been a faithful member of the Mennonite Church, to which all her children belong. In 1907 the family moved to Protection where they lived until 1921 when she moved to Hesston, KS, to send the younger children to school. The last 2 winters she has lived at the old home place in the home of her son Howard, where she died. The immediate cause of her death was double pneumonia. As a result of a weak heart condition her health has been failing for some years. During these years much her time was spent in reading, especially her Bible. Each year she read her Bible through 3 or 4 times, and she loved to talk about its message. On Monday, Dec. 9, she contracted pneumonia. After suffering about a week here soul passed on quietly & Peacefully. All her children but two were at her bedside when the end came. We miss her sadly, yet we are glad her pain & suffering have ceased, & in confidence submit her soul to her heavenly Father whom she served so faithfully. Funeral services were conducted Dec. 16 at the Mennonite Church in charge of Bro. Allen Erb of La Junta, CO, assisted by Bro. Chas. Sweitzer. Bro. Erb's father, the late T. M. Erb, conducted her husband's funeral over 25 years ago. As nearly possible the same text, part of Rev. 21:7 & part of 1 Cor. 15, & the same songs were used at both funerals. She was laid to rest in the Mennonite Cemetery by the side of her companion. "He that overcometh shall inherit all things."
