      _____________

      Detwiler.-Nancy Weber was born near Breslau, Ont., March 10, 1853; died at the home of her son, Norman, near Breslau, March 4, 1939; aged 85 y. 11 m. 25 d. In 1878 she was united in marriage to Noah Detwiler, who predeceased her July 14, 1920. This was the first marriage ceremony performed by the late Bishop Elias Weber. To this union were born 3 sons and 3 daughters. One son predeceased the parents in his infancy. There remain to mourn the departure of a faithful Christian mother, 2 sons (Isaiah and Norman of Breslau), 3 daughters (Abbie of Breslau, Mrs. Ephraim Kinzie of Preston, and Mrs. Titus Shantz of Kitchener), 19 grandchildren, and many relatives and friends. When 18 years of age she accepted Christ as her Saviour, united with the Cressman Mennonite Church, and remained a faithful member until the Lord called her home. She always had a bright testimony of peace with God, appreciated in a very grateful and humble manner her salvation experience, and lived an exemplary life. She will be missed as a true Christian mother, a helpful neighbor, and a living witness to the grace of God. Funeral services were conducted on March 8 in the Cressman Mennonite Church at Breslau by Brethren Jonas Snider and Oscar Burkholder. Texts, Job 14: 14; Psa. 71: 20,21.
