      Eby. - On Nov. 17, 1915, at the home of her grandson, John Eby, in Elkhard, Ind., of the infirmities of old age, Sister Mary Bingaman, widow of the late Jacob Eby, aged 95 y. 5 m. 8 d. Her husband died about 19 years ago. She was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., on 9th of June, 1820. She was married to Jacob Eby, April 7, 1840. to this union were born 8 sons, of whom the husband and 5 sons passed over to the spirit world before her. She was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church for many years, and was beloved and respected, by a wide circle of friends and relatives. She had an earnest and longing desire to depart and be with Christ, "which", as the apostle says, "is far better", and often said that she wanted to go home; the change finally came and her oft repeated prayer was answered. Funeral services were held at the Olive M. H. on Nov. 20, by John Martin in the German language, and John F. Funk in English, from 1 Pet. 1: 24,25. The burial took place in the adjoining cemetery.
