  • Notes 
    • After much suffering this past Friday, Maria, the wife of Herr Pastor Munzinger left this life. She was born nee Schassberger January 3, 1824 at Rothenburg an der Tauber, in the Kingdom of Bavaria and received a true Christian upbringing from her parents. In 1848 she married the widowed Pastor F.R. Munzinger and came to Amerika and settled in Munroe, Michigan where they stayed for eight years. In 1860 she came to Canada where Pastor Munzinger began a new mission in the Zurich area. From there, they spent some years in Black Creek, Welland County. In 1868 they came to Philipsburg where he had received a call and served for the next nine years. This should have been their last move. But following God's plan they served five more years in Zurich and nine more years in Sullivan. For the last 2-1/2 years she lived a quiet withdrawn life here, as she was suffering with the dreaded disease Cancer. They sought cures at various places and finally surgery seemed to be the only answer. This surgery occurred September 5 and seemed to be successful at first, but despite the medical care and dedicated care of the family, there was nothing more to do. After a hard fought battle, the Lord called her to her heavenly home on November 17 (1893)

      In their 45 years of marriage they had 4 children, three of whom died in childhood.

      She achieved an age of 69 years 10 months and 14 days. The survivors are the mourning husband, one daughter and son-in-law, 6 grandchildren, also a brother and sister in Michigan. This past Monday her earthly remains were interred in the Philipsburg cemetery with many mourners.
