      Wideman.-Abraham B. Wideman was born in Ontario, Nov. 15, 1851; died at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Wm. Boettger near Kingman, Alta., Nov. 15, 1931. He died on his 81st birthday. On Feb. 6, 1876, he was married to Anna Hembling of Ontario, who preceded him in death 6 years. To this union were born 7 sons and 6 daughters: Edwin, William, Ivy, Abram, Noah, Menno, Elias, Susannah, Martha, Anna, Franey, Lydia and Mary Ann. Elias, Noah, Anna, and Franey died in childhood. All the remaining children reside in the Kingman district except Edwin of Sheridan, Oreg., and Abram of Petoskey, Mich. He leaves 5 sons, 4 daughters, 57 grandchildren, 8 great-grandchildren, 1 brother, 1 half-sister and many relatives and friends. In the year 1885 he with his family moved to Osceola Co., Iowa, residing on a farm until 1901, when they migrated to Western Canada, taking a homestead near Olds, Alberta, residing there until his death. He was in good health until about a year ago, when he suffered a light stroke of paralysis, after which he gradually became weaker until his end. When a young man, he was received into the Mennonite Church and remained faithful until death. His seat in church was seldom vacant. In the last days of his life he often expressed a desire to go home; however, he manifested a full resignation to the will of his heavenly Father. Funeral services were held at the Salem Mennonite Church, near Tofield, Alta., conducted by N. E. Roth and M. D. Stutzman. Text, I Cor. 15: 57; I Cor. 15: 6. Interment in cemetery nearby.
