      __________________________

      Horst.-Tilman, the last one of a family of 7 children born to David and Magdalena (Martin) Horst, was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., Dec. 9, 1859; died March 2, 1936; aged 76 y. 2 m. 22 d. He was united in marriage to Hettie Lichty. To this union were born 2 sons and 3 daughters. His wife answered death's call June 12, 1922. He was a member of the St. Jacobs Mennonite Church and showed a living testimony of faith in Christ Jesus. Those left to mourn his departure are his children-Susanna (Mrs. Amos Brubacher), Lydiann, Levi. John, Hettie (wife of the late Jonas Bauman); also 19 grandchildren and many relatives and friends. He was failing fast the last few months and on Monday, while walking to the dinner table, the spirit took its flight. Funeral services were held March 5, at the St. Jacobs Mennonite Church conducted by Urias Martin and O. D. Snider. Interment in the Conestoga Cemetery.
      "Father dear, your wish is granted,
      Sorrow, pain, and grief are o'er;
      By the grace of God we'll meet you
      Over on the peaceful shore."
