On Dec. 12, 1894, she was united in marriage to Menno Zeller, who died Aug. 3, 1940. One son (Roy) predeceased her in 1948. Surviving are 4 sons (Oliver, Harvey, Stanley, and Alten, all of Kitchener), 2 daughters (Mary - Mrs. Milton Lambke, Preston, Ont.; and Clara, of Kitchener), and 12 grandchildren. She lived in Parkway with her husband and family until the last few years, which she spent at Braeside home, Preston. She accepted Christ when she was past middle age and united with the First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, of which she was a member until death. Although of quiet disposition, she had a genuine interest in the religious activities of the Home. Funeral services were held at the Ratz and Bechtel Funeral Home, Kitchener, on Sept. 23, with Merle Shantz in charge, assisted by John H. Hess. Interment was made in the First Mennonite Cemetery.
