    • Mary Ann Snyder, "was born February 9th, 1859. On March 7th, 1882, she was married to Noah C. Bechtel, a farmer. "

      Eby, Ezra E. (1895).

      Bechtel Mary Ann, daughter of the late Moses K. and Lydia Snyder, was born Feb. 9, 1859 in Wilmot Tp., Ont.; died Feb. 4, 1932; aged 72 y. 11 m. 26 d. She was married to Noah C. Bechtel Mar. 7, 1882. This union was blessed with 6 daughters and 4 sons (of whom eight survive): Moses, Sarah Ann, Eden, Owen, Herbert (died 1912), Lucinda, Edna, Ida Elizabeth and Nettie. One brother, Samuel, also preceded her in death. She united with the Mennonite Church shortly after marriage and remained a faithful member until death. She had been an invalid for the last thirteen years, due to the effects of rheumatism. She bore her infirmity patiently, and was seldom heard to complain. She was a beautiful example of patience, meekness, and humility. The last three weeks of her life she suffered a general breakdown. She slept peacefully and calmly away. She leaves her husband, 4 brothers (Amos, Noah, Moses, and Christian), 1 sister (Sarah), 8 children 40 grandchildren, and a host of relatives and friends. Funeral services were held at the home by Bro. J.W. Witmer, and at the Latschar Mennonite Church at Manheim, Ont., by Bishop M.S. Hallman. Burial in adjoining cemetery.
      "Why should our tears in sorrow flow,
      When God recalls His own,
      And bids them leave a world of woe,
      For an immortal crown.
