  • Notes 
    • WEBER. - On Aug. 17, 1899, about one mile north of Waterloo, Waterloo Co., Ontario, Sister Mary Ann, beloved wife of Joseph S. Weber, and oldest daughter of Henry B. Shantz. Her age was 34 years, 8 months and 5 days. She died at the "Berlin-Waterloo Hospital" from the effects of an internal rupture. Signs of her departure manifested itself shortly before she died, time, however, being permitted for her children to come and give her good-bye. By her request her brother was also summoned from his occupation to meet her once more and she pointed him earnestly to Christ for the hope of a glorious hereafter. She arranged for the ministers to preach at her funeral, and gave instruction to warn the people of pride and vanity. She will be greatly missed by her nine children and loving husband, besides the Mennonite Church and neighborhood, where she was a willing helper. Funeral at Martin's M. H. was largely attended, the house being filled; the school house opposite the road also being filled. Service at the church by Bro. Jonas Snyder, (text, Luke 10: 42), and Bro. E. S. Hallman, Text, Phil. 1: 23. The service at the school house was held by the brethren, Samuel S. Bowman and Jacob Woolner, Jr.
