      ____________________

      SHANTZ - On the 15th of Jan., 1900, in Waterloo Co., Ont., of liver complaint, Sister Barbara (Rudy) Shantz, beloved wife of Menno E. Shantz, aged 57 years, 6 months and 28 days. She was born June 18th, 1842. She leaves behind a husband, six children and nine grandchildren. She has been a member of the Mennonite Church for many years. During her last illness she bore her afflictions with Christian patience and was waiting for the summons: "Come up higher." Although mother will be missed greatly at home, still the Lord will never leave us nor forsake us. Funeral services were held in the D. Eby M. H. by E.S. Hallman in English from Rev. 22: 14, and Jonas Snyder in German from Rev. 21: 7. The meeting house was probably never so crowded as upon this occasion.
