  • Notes 
    • Schwartzentruber. --- Lydia, daughter of the late Bishop Jacob M. and Mary (Ruby) Bender, was born in South Easthope, Perth Co., Ont., July 23, 1856; died Aug. 1, 1940, at her home in the twinkling of an eye without any sign of sickness; aged 54 y.9 d. In early youth, she accepted Christ as her personal Saviour, was received into church fellowship through water baptism by her late father, and lived an exemplary Christian life until the heavenly summons called her. On Nov. 25, 1909, she was united in holy matrimony to Bro. John B. Schwartzentruber of Petersburg, Ont. This union was blessed with three children (Serenus, on adjoining farm; Corsin, at home; and Lily May wife of Henry Jantzi, of East Zorra). She leaves her bereaved husband, 2 sons, 1 daughter, 2 grandchildren, 4 brothers (John R., Joseph R., Jacob R., all of Tavistock, and David R., of New Hamburg), and 2 sisters (Catherine, widow of Peter S. Zehr; Sarah, wife of Joel Schwartzentruber, of East Zorra). Her aged mother-in-law, Elizabeth Schwartzentruber, an invalid for nearly 40 years, also survives. Six sisters and 1 grandchild predeceased her. Funeral services were held Aug. 4 at the home, conducted by D. Wagler, and at the East Zorra A.M. Church by Brethren M. Kipfer, Moses H. Roth, and Dan S. Jutzi. A large concourse of friends from far and near gathered to pay their last respects to our beloved sister. May she rest in peace.
