- Reist.-Annie Auker was born in Juniata Co.,Pa., Jan. 7, 1864, where she spent her girlhood days and at the age of 24 she emigrated to May City, Iowa, with a small colony of Mennonites of which she was a member. At the age of 25 she was united in marriage to Elias B. Reist of Huron Co., Ont. They made their home at May City, Iowa a few years and then moved to Michigan where they lived for 15 years. In 1910 they moved to Alberta, where they lived until two and one-half years ago when they came to Oregon. To this union were born five sons and three daughters: Mary, Solomon, Abraham, Joel, Leah, Lydia who passed away in infancy, Reuben and Irvin. Mother had always been well, hardly knowing what it was to be sick. October 15 she performed her work as usual, ate a hearty supper and went to bed. Shortly after midnight she had a stroke and in a few hours she passed away. Funeral services at Sheridan, Oreg., church Oct. 19, were conducted by Bro. Daniel Shenk of Sheridan and Bro. Allan Good of the Portland Mission. Text, Rev. 14: 13. She has always been a faithful member and an earnest worker. Almost her last work was caring for the sick. Interment at the South Yamhill Baptist Cemetery.
"Dearest mother, thou hast left us,
And thy loss we deeply feel;
But 'tis God who has bereft us,
He will all our sorrows heal." -By members of the family.1a
