  • Notes 
    • Habermehl. - Anna Shantz Habermehl was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., July 25, 1871; died July 29, 1917; aged 46 y. 4 d. She accepted Christ as her Savior early in life, joined the Mennonite Church and was an example of industry, sincerity, and humility that many would do well to follow. During the last few months of her life she suffered much from a complication of diseases, and here also as well as in health, she proved what a wonderful measure of grace the Savior can give, by bearing it all in perfect patience and resignation to the will of God. For a little over fourteen years she had lived in matrimony with Albert Habermehl, which union was blessed with 1 son and 5 daughters, who, with the sorrowing husband, 3 brothers, 3 sisters, an aged father, and the entire congregation with whom she worshiped for fourteen years, mourn the departure of one we all loved.

      Yes, she has left this vale of tears,
      To be with Christ who for her died,
      With Him to spend the eternal years,
      And praise Him with the glorified.


      Funeral services July 31 at the house and St. Jacobs Mennonite Church by E. S. Bauman in German, followed by Bishop Jonas Snider in English. Interment at Conestoga Cemetery.
