  • Notes 
    • Reesor -- Lydia Ann Weber was born at Waterloo, Ont., May 11, 1891; died Dec. 29, 1938, at Markham, Ont.; aged 47 y. 7 m. 18 d. Sister Reesor was a daughter of Joseph S. and the late Mary Ann (Shantz) Weber of Waterloo. In 1905 during a revival held by Bro. A. D. Wenger, she confessed the Lord as her Saviour and the same year was baptized and became a member of the Mennonite Church at Waterloo. On Dec. 20, 1916, she was married to Bro. Joseph B. Reesor of Markham. To this union 9 children were born (Mary, Lewis, Martha, Annie, Eva, David, John, Esther, and Ruth). Seven of these have confessed Jesus as their Saviour and are members of the church. She also leaves an aged father (living in Saskatchewan), 7 brothers (Allan, Joseph, and Byron of Waterloo; Lewis S., missionary to Argentina, S. A.; Newton of Ft. Wayne, Ind., mission; Orphen of Baden, Orval of London), and 3 sisters Mrs. A. R. Burkholder of Markham, Mrs. Herbert Snyder of Waterloo, Mrs. Leonard Snyder, Waterloo, Mrs. Delton Schmitt of Waterloo). One sister (Mrs. Nelson Martin) died a number of years ago while they had charge of Toronto Mission. There also remains a sorrowing mother-in-law (Mrs. Tillman Reesor of Markham), who feels very keenly the loss of a loving daughter who kindly cared for her. The church at Markham, also the surrounding community, is grieved because of the loss of a Christian mother who was so much needed in the home, but we humbly yield as she also did before her passing and say with her, "The Lord's will be done." She had not been in good health for some time, and less than a week before her passing developed a slight attack of pneumonia. Having a weak heart, the two conditions proved too much for her and she triumphantly passed away. The same day she requested her family to sing for her at the bedside. She helped to sing the chorus of the Sweet Bye and Bye." The one comforting thought of the sorrowing husband, family, church circle, and the community is the knowledge that a loving mother has entered the courts above to be with her Lord. Funeral services were held Jan.1 at the home by Bro. A. D. Grove, Bro. Cockburn of the Congregational Church and Bro. Oscar Burkholder of Breslau who preached the sermon. Text, Jno. 11: 25, 26.
