      Hoover. --- Osborne, son of Anna Moyer and Moses Hoover, was born in Rainham Twp., near Selkirk, Ont., April 9, 1878; passed from this life at the Ontario Hospital, Hamilton, Sept. 22, 1950; aged 72 y. 5 m. 13 d. About two years ago he suffered a stroke, and his health was gradually failing. In 1913 he was converted; he served his Master in the Mennonite Church, where he was an efficient song leader, being a great lover of the hymns of the church. Twenty-two years ago he married Lavina Shuh, of Kitchener, Ont., who predeceased him April 19, 1947. He lived all his life on the home farm, near the church, until his health began to fail. Although no children were born to this marriage, his going is felt keenly, by the church, relatives, and neighbors. Funeral services were held Sept. 24 at the Rainham Mennonite Church, conducted by A. L. Fretz and S. F. Coffman. Interment was made in the South Cayuga Cemetery.
