      _______________________

      East Zorra

      We are indeed sorry to report the untimely death of Mrs. Joseph Baechler, Jr., whose end was not expected, as she was in the prime of life. The funeral which was held to the Mennonite Church and Cemetery, was attended by the largest crowd of people seen at a funeral for many years, which showed the high esteem and love in which Mrs. Baechler was held by all. The community of Zorra will sympathize with the bereaved husband and family. Sweetly she does slumber. She's gone but her charming love and ways will never be forgotten.
