      Weber. - Ephraim H., son of Daniel and Elizabeth Weber, was born June 29, 1875; died June 22, 1934; aged 58 y. 11 m. 23 d. He was born and resided near Kitchener all his life. He is survived by his wife (Maria Steckel), 4 sons (Clayton, Ion, Eldon, Mervin), 1 daughter (Mrs. Laura Hamsher, Berlin, Ohio). and 2 brothers (Josiah H. and George A., of Kitchener). He was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church and well esteemed in the community at large. He was known as a man of integrity and dependability and possessed of a quiet dignity and modesty. He was the incarnation of the common virtues of life, so often undervalued, nevertheless they are what make men and nations great. His self-controlled speech was a desirable quality that all Christians might well covet. His sudden passing in the night while asleep is a loud call to all to prepare to meet their God in peace. His passing will leave a vacant place, and memory will treasure his personality "till we meet again." The services were conducted at the First Mennonite Church, in charge of Bros. C. F. Derstine and 0. Burkholder. Sermon, "The Ministry of Hard Knocks and Affliction." II Cor. 4 : 16,17.
