  • Notes 
    • Weber. - Marian Weber, only daughter of Tilman and Magdalena Weber, of Bridgeport, Ont., was born Sept. 18, 1890; died Feb. 1, 1929; aged 38 y. 4 m. 14 d. She was converted when a young girl and united with the Mennonite Church to which faith she remained steadfast until death. She is survived by her father and two brothers, Amos and Urias. Her mother died when she was quite small. She was a dutiful and affectionate daughter and sister and quite early in life took her mother's place in the home. She underwent an operation for goitre which proved fatal the following day. About 20 years ago during a severe sickness she was privileged to have a glimpse into the supernatural realm and saw her mother with the angels. The angels told her they would come again. During the last hours of her life, she had a similar vision, but this time the angels told her that she could go along. Her last words were "I am going home," and her spirit quietly slipped away to be with Jesus, her mother, and the holy angels. Her life and testimony have left a profound impression on all those who knew her. Funeral services were held at the First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, Ont., on Feb. 4, 1929, conducted by Bros. C. F. Derstine, S. F. Coffman and pastor Wing. Text, Isa. 40: 1; Psa. 23: 4. Interment in the cemetery adjoining, beside her mother.
