  • Notes 
    • Erb - Malinda, daughter of the late Jacob and Elizabeth Karcher Erb, after a lingering illness, died Mar. 27, 1938, at the home of her sister (Mrs. Delton Snider), in Waterloo, Ont., aged 63 y. 9 m. 2 d. Surviving are two brothers (Anson of Carstairs, Atla., and Addison of Waterloo), and 4 sisters (Mrs. Ira Snyder, and Mrs. Delton Snider, both of Waterloo, Mrs. Addis Cressman, New Hamburg, and Mrs. Joseph Weter, Waterloo). One sister (Mrs. William Knarr of Kitchener) preceded her on March 9, 1938. When seventeen years old she was converted during the preaching of J.S. Coffman. She united with the Mennonite Church and lived a faithful Christian life. Her testimony during her sickness was to go and be with Jesus. "For me to live is Christ but to die is gain." Funeral services were conducted by Brethren Jonas Snider and J.B. Martin at the Erb St., Mennonite Church, Waterloo, Ont.
