    • Burkholder, --- Fannie S., daughter of the late Joseph S. and Maryann (Shantz) Weber, was born at Waterloo, Ont., May 11, 1886; peacefully fell asleep in Jesus in the early morning hours, Feb. 16, 1953; aged 66 y. 9 m. 5 d. She gave her heart to the Lord at the age of thirteen, united with the Mennonite Church at Waterloo, Ont., and later transferred her membership to the Cedar Grove congregation near Markham. On Dec. 18, 1907, she was united in holy wedlock to Amos R. Burkholder. She was preceded in death by 2 sisters (Lydia Ann-Mrs. Joseph Ressor, and Naomi-Mrs. Nelson Martin), and 2 infant sons. Surviving are her husband, 2 sons (Walter, Pickering, Ont.; and Leonard, Markham, Ont.), 3 daughters (Mary-Mrs. Aaron Good, Petersburg, Ont.; Hannah-Mrs. Gordon Wideman; and Ada, Markham, Ont.), 13 grandchildren, stepmother (Mrs. Elizabeth Weber, Calgary, Alta.), 7 brothers (Allan, Kitchener, Ont.; Joseph H., Waterloo, Ont.; Lewis, Scottdale, Pa.; Newton, Akron, Pa.; Orphen, Kitchener, Ont.; Orval, Petersburg, Ont.; and Byron, Kitchener, Ont.), 3 sisters (Hannah-Mrs. Herb Snider, Breslau, Ont.; Violet-Mrs. Leonard Snyder, Elmira, Ont.; and Beulah-Mrs. Delton Schmidt, Petersburg, Ont.) as well as many other relatives and friends. In her sudden passing the home has lost a devoted and loving wife and mother, the church a faithful member, and the community a warm friend and kind neighbor. Funeral services were held Feb. 18, at the Wideman Mennonite Church, Markham, Ont., in charge of Aaron Grove and Floyd Smucker.
