  • Notes 
    • "Good.-Silas Sittler Good was born Oct. 24, 1865, at Waterloo, Ont.; died at the High River Hospital, Alta., Nov. 7, 1938, of pneumonia (was sick only a few days); aged 73 y. 14 d. In 1894 he was married to Lucinda Weber. To this union were born 6 children. Three died in infancy. He was converted when about 30 years of age and was a faithful member until death. He came to Alberta in 1900; was a charter member of the Mount View congregation organized in 1901. He was a faithful janitor for 16 years, asking very little for his service. He also donated the land on which the present church building stands. He was one of those unassuming members, but was always at his post. He leaves his beloved wife, 2 sons and 1 daughter (Clayton, Gorden, and Mrs. Joel Reist, with whom he resided at the time of death), and 8 grandchildren, all of Aldersyde, Alta.), 3 sisters and 2 brothers (Mrs. H. Rosenburger, Emma Good, and Jacob Good of Kitchener, Ont.; Mrs. Ezra Shantz of Didsbury, Alta.; and Ira Good of Carstairs, Alta.). A short service in the home was conducted by Bro. H. J. Harder of Didsbury, Alta., and in the church by Bro. Isaac Miller and O. O. Hershberger. Laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery."
