      Eby, Ezra E. (1895).

      _______________

      BRICKER.-In Blenheim Twp., Oxford Co., Ont., on March 5, 1904, Lydia, wife of Bro. Isaac Bricker, aged 70 Y., 9 M., 27 D. Sister Bricker was ill for only a few weeks and dangerously ill for only a few days, so that the messenger of death came rather unexpectedly to her friends. She leaves a sorrowing husband, seven sons and four daughters, whose loss, we believe, is her eternal gain. Funeral services on March 8, at the Blenheim Mennonite M. H., where Bro. M. Cressman spoke in German and Bro. E.S. Hallman in English to a large and attentive audience. Buried in Blenheim Mennonite cemetery. Thus "He giveth his beloved sleep."
