  • Notes 
    • ERB, Elmer G. - "Well done, my good and faithful servant, come and share in your Master's joy." Mat-thew 25: 21 Our dear loving father, Elmer G. Erb, responded to God's call to share in the eternal blessings of the Lord on Sunday, April 2, 2006 at 12: 25 p.m. joining his late beloved wife Vera Bast, (April 30, 1999) whom he married on October 5, 1938. Elmer was born in Wellesley township on February 2, 1911, the first born of the late Daniel S. Erb and the late Nancy Gerber. After a short time in business as co-owner of Millbank Flour, Feed and Seed, Elmer and Vera farmed in Wellesley Township for twenty-five years. Elmer was a member of Crosshill Mennonite Church and actively contributed to church life as a Sunday school teacher and adult superintendent. He dedicated forty years to the work of A.M Fire & Storm Aid Union, first as a Director later in the position of Secretary Treasurer. Elmer and Vera retired to Wellesley and together spent their last years at Nithview Retirement and Nursing Home, New Hamburg. Elmer is survived by his children, Earl and wife Eva Erb, RR2, Wellesley, Reta and husband Harold Gingerich, Baden, Beatrice and husband James Bender, Ailsa Craig, Arlene and husband Stephen Hoke, New Hamburg and MaryAnn Erb Schlegel, Waterloo. Elmer will be lovingly remembered by his 16 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. He is the dear brother of Laura Nafziger, Allan and Norma Erb and sisters-in-law, Frieda Erb and Katherine Erb. Elmer is predeceased by a grandson, Justin Peter Schlegel, 1981; four brothers, John, Cornelius, Norman and Daniel, sisters-in-law, Emma Erb, Amanda Erb, Doris Erb Kropf and brother-in-law, Harvey Nafziger. The family wishes to express their sincere gratitude and appreciation to the pastoral care and third floor staff who provided excellent care and support to Dad while at Nithview. Friends and family are invited to visitation at Futher Bros. Funeral Home, 1172 Henry St. W., Wellesley on Tuesday, April 4 from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held on Wednesday, April 5, 2006 at 2 p.m. at Maple View Mennonite Church, Pas-tors Jamie Gerber and Amsey Martin will officiate. Graveside service will follow in Maple View Mennonite Cem-etery. As expressions of sympathy, donations to Crosshill Mennonite Church Building Fund or Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) would be appreciated by the family.
