She was united in marriage to Daniel Jantzi Jan. 23, 1877, by Bishop John Gascho of Wilmot. This union was blessed with 10 children. Surviving are 5 sons and 3 daughters (Solomon of Lowville, N. Y.; Christian of Wilmot; Bishop Mose of Baden; John of Erbsville; Daniel of Vulcan, Alta.; Mrs. Joseph Nafziger of Mannville, Alta; Mrs. John Holst and Mrs. Allen Bender of Baden). One son (Michael) and one daughter (Barbara) predeceased her.

One sister predeceased in May. She united with the Amish Mennonite Church in her teens and remained a faithful member until death. She had been in good health until about 7 months ago. She became so tired and gradually grew weaker. She was conscious to the last. Her thoughts were always heavenward and she was so very appreciative of everything that was done for her. She attended church regularly as long as she was able. She was loving and kind and filled a worth-while place in the home.
