      Burkhardt
      .-Sarah Burkhardt (nee Sitler) was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., Jan. 2, 1837; died at the home of her son-in-law, Noah Shoemaker, Floradale, Ont., March 27, 1913; aged 76 y. 2 m. 25 d. On April 8, 1856, she was married to Joseph Burkhardt, who preceded her to the world beyond about 18 years ago. This union was blessed with 11 children, 6 of whom survive. One of her daughters, Susannah (Mrs. J. P. Martin), died on March 16, 1913, exactly one week before her mother's death. She suffered a stroke of paralysis, pneumonia developing after a short time and five days from the beginning of her illness death ensued. The funeral was held on March 30, from the residence of her son-in-law to the Mennonite cemetery nearby.
      Beloved mother, oh, how we miss thee,
      Thy smiling face no more to see;
      In heaven again we hope to meet thee,
      Where parting never more shall be.
      By a daughter.
