      Snyder. - Mary Snyder (nee Shantz) was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., Oct. 6, 1847; died at her home in Waterloo Nov. 25, 1921; aged 74 y. 1 m. 19 d. She united in marriage with Martin B. Snyder, who preceded her about 5 years ago, having born to them a number of grand and great-grandchildren. Sister Snyder united with the Mennonite Church in her youth and was faithful unto death, even through her sickness which lasted several months, often with great pain and distress, yet bearing it patiently, being resigned to the Lord saying, Thy will be done. Funeral services were conducted at the home by Bro. Lewis S. Weber, and at the Waterloo Church by Bro. Jonas Snider.
