    • Mrs. Elizabeth Litwiller - By Chronicle Correspondent - Baden -

      On Saturday evening June 3, the death occurred at her late residence on the Kitchener-Baden highway of Mrs. Elizabeth Litwiller, who was 73 years of age. The deceased, who was born in Petersburg, was a daughter of the late Mr. Jacob and Mrs. Magdalene Swartzentruber. She had been in failing health for some time. Her husband, Peter J. Litwiller, predeceased her some years ago. Mrs. Litwiller was a faithful member of the Wilmot Amish Mennonite Church. One daughter and three sons survive, namely: Mrs. Henry Beckter of Elkton, Michigan, Noah of St. Agatha, Elmer of Petersburg and William of Lowville, New York. There are also left to mourn her one sister, Mrs. John Litwiller, and four brothers, John of Petersburg, Jacob of St. Agatha, Christian or Kitchener, and Dania of Elkton, Michigan. Funeral services were held on Wednesday afternoon at 2 p.m. from her late residence to the St. Agatha Amish Mennonite Church, with interment in the adjoining cemetery. Amos Swartzentruber of Argentine, South America, officiated at the burial services.
