  • Notes 
    • Hallman, Melinda, daughter of the late George and Salome Clemens, was born May 18, 1873 at Breslau, Ont.; passed away at the South Waterloo Memorial Hospital, Galt, Ont., of a heart attack, Feb. 12, 1956; aged 82 y. 8 m. 26 d. On Aug. 9,1893, she was united in marriage to Eli S. Hallman, who preceded her in death on Aug. 25, 1955, after living together for 62 years. She was a resident of the Fairview Mennonite Home, Preston, Ont., less than three weeks prior to her passing. At the age of sixteen she accepted Christ as her Saviour, and united with the Zion Methodist Church, Breslau, Ont. Two years later she transferred her membership to the Mennonite Church during the time of John S. Coffman revivals in Ontario. She faithfully served her Master in various communities in Canada, and in the southern part of the United States as companion to her husband in his ministry; and in cheerful encouragement to those whom she contacted. Surviving are the following children (George B., White Fox, Sask.; William E., Argentina, S. A.; Abram P., Akron, Pa.; and Anna-Mrs. B. Frank Byler, Argentina), also 14 grand children, and 6 great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by one son, Clemens S., on Aug. 23, 1927. Funeral services were held Feb.15 at the Cressman Mennonite Church, Breslau, with Oscar Burkholder, Glen Esh, and Howard Good officiating. Interment was made in the adjoining cemetery.1a
