      Eby, Ezra E. (1895).

      ____________

      Groh. - Lovina Bechtel, beloved wife of Anson Groh, was born Dec. 1, 1860; died Aug. 15, 1932; aged 71 y. 8 m. 14 d. At the age of 21 she was married to Anson Groh, in the neighborhood of Preston, Ont., where she resided until her death. To this union were born 6 boys and 5 girls. One of the girls, Elsie, died at the age of 18 years, 18 years ago. The others are Herbert, Mabel, Melvin, Norman, Mrs. Mennon Snyder, Esther, Mrs. David Lehman, Oscar, Ivan, and Harold, lately ordained minister and Sup't. Of the Mennonite Mission, Toronto, Ont. There are also 26 grandchildren. Sister Groh has one brother living (Noah Bechtel of Blackie, Alta.), 1 sister and 3 brothers having preceded her in death. She became a Christian during the series of meetings conducted by Bro. J. S. Coffman of Elkhart, Ind., about 45 years ago. Of her 44 descendants, only one preceded her. All her children, we trust, are serving the Lord whom she loved. She expressed faith that it was well with her soul, and that the Lord would accompany her "through the valley of the shadow of death." She is survived by the families of seven Christian homes, besides the one in which she lived. On March 4, the family celebrated the 50th or golden wedding anniversary. Funeral services were held at the Warner Church, near Hespeler, Ont., conducted by S. F. Coffman and S . M. Kanagy. Text, II Cor. 5: 11. Interment in the cemetery nearby.
