      1aThe Biographical History of Waterloo Township, by Ezra Eby

      _____________________________


      Bergey, Louisa, eldest daughter of Pre. Moses S. and Anna Cressman Bowman and beloved wife of deacon David Bergey, was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., Nov.28, 1845; died at her home near New Dundee,Ont., Jan.11, 1931; aged 85 y. 1. m 14d. On Dec.31, 1872, she was married to David Bergey. This union was blessed with 4 sons and 3 daughters. Two preceded her in death. She is survived by her husband, 2 daughters (Amelia and Ida ), 3 sons ( Gilbert, Milton, and Herbert), 10 grandchildren,4 sisters,4 brothers. At the age of 25 she confessed Christ and united with the Mennonite Church of which she was a faithful member to death. She was a regular attendant at church services, seldom missing a service. She was a real help to her husband in his work as deacon in the Church. She enjoyed good health all her life and bore her brief illness with patience; looking forward in happy anticipation for the triumphal entry into the Glory World. Her last desire was to be "where there is fullness of joy and pleasure forever-more." Funeral services were held Jan.14, at the home and at Blenheim Mennonite Church near New Dundee,Ont., by Bros. M.H. Shantz and S.F. Coffman. Text, II Cor.5:9. Interment in cemetery nearby.2a
