  • Notes 
    • Hunsberger.--Mary (Horst) Hunsberger was born Oct. 29, 1867; died Dec. 1, 1932; aged 65 y. 1 m. 2 d. She was united in matrimony to Mose Hunsberger Oct. 2, 1895, with whom she shared the joys of a happy life for 37 years. Sister Hunsberger had been in failing health quite a while, but always was patient and contented with her lot. She gave her heart to the Lord in her youth and lived a faithful Christian life. Though silent in word, she is still yielding her influence upon those who remain. She leaves her sorrowing husband and 1 sister Susannah (wife of Bishop Jonas Snider); also a host of relatives and friends. The services were held Dec. 4 at the Waterloo, Ont., Mennonite Church. The funeral was conducted by Bros. Newton Weber and Jesse B. Martin. Scripture reading and text, I Cor. 15 and Psa. 23. The body was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery, waiting for the resurrection, when Christ shall descend from heaven and the dead in Christ shall rise first.
