      ____________________


      Oberholtzer. - Mary Ann Wismer Oberholtzer was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., May 20, 1844; fell asleep in Christ Feb. 26, 1926, at her home in Kitchener, Ont.; aged 81 y. 9 m. 6 d. She united with the Mennonite Church in her youth, being at least 60 years in church fellowship, and was one of its pioneer Sunday school teachers and lived to see the second generation of those she taught. Grandma greatly enjoyed the blessings of the Christian life until the day she left to be with the Lord, and she was dearly beloved by all who knew her. She was married to Isaac Oberholtzer. This union was blessed with three sons and two daughters, all of whom are living. There are also 27 grandchildren and 40 great-grandchildren, also 4 brothers and 2 sisters, she being the first of them to go. The date of her death was rather unique in that it fell exactly on the day of the 25th anniversary of her mother's death and the 39th anniversary of her husband's burial. Her funeral which was largely attended was held Feb. 28 at the First Mennonite Church, the services being conducted by Bro. C. F. Derstine from I Pet. 1: 3, 4, assisted by Bro. Noah Stauffer. Peace to her ashes.
