Oct. 9, 1883, she was united in marriage to Eli Good, who served as deacon of the Geiger congregation for 30 yrs. and was called to his reward Feb. 11, 1934. This union was blessed with 6 daughters and 7 sons, 5 of whom died in childhood and one daughter (Malinda, Mrs. Simon Brubacher) in July, 1933. Three grandchildren also preceded her. Surviving are 4 sons and 3 daughters (Amos, Jonas, and Moses near New Hamburg; Joseph and Elizabeth (Baer) of Plattsville; Mrs. Angus Eby of Drake, Sask.; Mrs. Angus Gingrich of Wilmot), 33 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, 1 brother (Noah of Wilmot), 1 sister (Mrs. Chriss Fretz, of Vineland). Sister Good accepted Christ as her Saviour in her youth and was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church til death. She was a kind and devoted mother whose services cannot be estimated by earthly measures. Funeral services were held March 16 from the home to the Geiger Mennonite Church, in charge of bishops M.H. Roth and M. Hallman. The body was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery.
