      SNIDER. John Snider was born in Waterloo, Ont., Dec. 24, 1848; passed peacefully away Feb. 15, 1930; aged 81 y. 1 m. 22 d. On June 5, 1870, he was united in marriage to Magdalena Snyder, who preceded him in death Oct. 3, 1900. On Aug. 12, 1903, he was married to Lydia E. Bergey, who also preceded him in death on Jan. 30, 1925. To the first union were born four children, two daughters (Hannah and Almina) dying in infancy. Those who remain are two sons, (Ephraim and Urias), and eight grandchildren. Bro. Snider had the joy of seeing all his children and grandchildren converted and unite with the Mennonite Church. He was a member of the Mennonite Church for many years. He was patiently waiting and longing to leave this world, and to go home to be with Jesus. Funeral services were held on the 18th at the First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, in charge of Bros. O. Burkholder and Jesse B. Martin. Text, Isa. 3: 10, 11. Interment in adjoining cemetery.
