  • Notes 
    • Bender.--Annie, daughter of John M. and Catherine Bender, was born in East Zorra, Ont., Feb. 28, 1872; passed away at the home of her brother, Joseph J. Bender, April 27, 1945; aged 73 y. 1 m. 29 d. In 1877 her parents moved to Wilmot Twp. where she made her home until the death of her mother in July, 1927. Since then she made her home with her brothers, helping where she was most needed. In early youth she accepted Christ as her Saviour and was baptized by her grandfather, Bishop Joseph Ruby of the East Zorra congregation, remaining a faithful and consistent member until the end. She was of a cheerful disposition and manifested a meek and quiet spirit which is in the sight of God of great price. Surviving are 4 brothers (Joseph, John, and Moses, of Wilmot; and Samuel, of New Hamburg), one adopted sister (Catherine--Mrs. Chris K. Bender, of East Zorra), 9 nephews, and 7 nieces. Services were conducted at the home and at the East Zorra A.M. Church. Interment was made in the adjoining cemetery.
