      SNYDER - On the 28th of March, 1893, at Breslau, Waterloo Co., Ont., of consumption, Lydia Ann, wife of Bro. Oziah Snyder and youngest daughter of Jacob and Maria Betzner, aged 27 y., 3 m., 3d. She had been in feeble health for over a year, but had become so much better that we thought all danger over. But she took a severe cold and at once began to sink, and after a few days of suffering she fell asleep in Jesus. She told her husband not to weep, but to meet her in heaven. She untied with the church in early years, and was a beloved member, a kind and sympathizing friend, and her early loss will be deeply felt by all. She leaves her bereaved young husband, one child, parents, brothers and sisters and many warm friends. Her remains were laid to rest on the 31st at Cressman's M.H., Breslau. Funeral services by Elias Weber and Moses Bowman in German and I.A. Wambold in English.

      "A dear one has gone from our circle on earth we shall see her no more,
      She has gone to the Savior in glory, and all her afflictions are o'er." L.K.B
