  • Notes 
    • Rosenberger - Persida, daughter of Aaron and Barbara (Nahrgang) Shantz, was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., June 25, 1870; died May 9, 1938, at her home near Haysville, Ont. She was in her 68th year. On Sept. 29, 1891, she was united in marriage to Isaiah S. Rosenberger, also of Wilmot township. The union was blessed with 2 sons and 6 daughters. She confessed Christ as her personal Saviour in 1891 and united with the Mennonite faith and remained true to the end. In 1897 her husband was ordained to the ministry and she was a faithful companion to him in his work. Always ready to lend a helping hand and ready at all times to share with her husband the joys and sorrows, the burdens and experiences that come with those who are called to service. In 1908 she with her husband and family moved to Guernsey, Sask., where they lived and labored for the Lord until May of 1936 when they again returned east and settled in Waterloo Co. She leaves her husband, 2 sons (Chester of Meteor, Sask., and David of Guernsey, Sask.), and 5 daughters (Ada, wife of George Hawes; Mary, wife of Herbert Kehl; Leona, wife of Leighton Schmitt, also of Guernsey; and Clista and Alda at home). One daughter (Bessie) predeceased her. There are also 15 grandchildren and 6 sisters. Funeral services on May 12 with Bro. M.H. Roth at the home and Brethren M. Hallman and M.H. Shantz at the Blenheim Mennonite Church. Text, II Tim. 4: 6-8. Interment in adjoining cemetery.
