  • Notes 
    • WAMBOLD.-On the 7th of September 1890, in Waterloo Co., Ont., of consumption, Sister Emma M. Hershey, wife of Bro. Isaac A. Wambold, aged 28 years, 10 months and 18 days. She leaves a deeply bereaved husband, parents, brothers and sisters to mourn her early death. She was the mother of one child, a little boy, who has already gone before to dwell with the angels of light. During her sickness she exhorted those around her to live for Christ, and told her husband to be faithful, that when he must leave this world that he can meet his family in heaven. She often made these expressions, "I would like to go home." "I would like to go to Jesus," and many others similar to these. Her remains were interred in the Mennonite cemetery in Berlin on the 10th, where a large concourse of people had gathered together to pay the last tribute of respect to the departed sister. Funeral services were conducted by Daniel Wismer in English, and by Moses Bowman in German.
