  • Notes 
    • Hunsberger. - Enos S. Hunsberger was born in Wilmot Twp., Ont., Feb. 24, 1865; died very suddenly of heart disease at the home of his son, Baden, Ont., April 3, 1929; aged 64 y. 1 m. 10 d. On Sept. 17, 1889, he was united in marriage to Angeline Erb. He leaves to mourn his departure a deeply bereaved companion, 3 children (Nora, at home; Eldon, with whom he made his home, Baden, Ont.; and Mrs. Edmund Cressman, New Hamburg, Ont.), 6 grandchildren, 3 brothers (Moses and Abram, Bridgeport, Ont.; and Noah, Waterloo, Ont.), 3 sisters (Mary Ann and Lena, Waterloo; Mrs. Jacob Brubacher, Kitchener, Ont.). He united with the Mennonite Church in 1906 and remained faithful until death. His sudden death was a shock to the family and to the whole community. We humbly submit to God's will, for He knoweth best. He was of a kind and loving disposition and a friend to all. Funeral services were conducted at the home by Orphen Wismer and at the A. M. Church by Jonas Snider and Oscar Burkholder. Text, Isa. 38: 1; Jno. 11: 25. Interment in the Shantz cemetery.
