      _______________________

      Snyder.-Esther Detweiler, beloved wife of Albert Snyder of Bloomingdale, Ont., was born Feb. 21, 1851; died Dec. 12, 1936; aged 85 y. 9 m. 21 d. On April 14, 1874 she was united in marriage to Albert Snyder, with whom she shared the joys and cares of life nearly 63 years. There remain her loving husband, 1 son (Addison D.) at home, 1 adopted daughter (Mrs. Selina Weber of Kitchener), (3 daughters died in infancy); also 1 grandson (John W. Snyder) and 2 granddaughters (Estella and Eileen Weber of Kitchener) and 1 brother (R. B. Detweiler of Ingersoll, Ont.)-the last surviving member of a family of fourteen, who had all grown to see the youngest of the family married before the family circle was broken. She also leaves a large number of relatives and friends. She had a wide circle of friends whom she had made by her always cheerful smile. We mourn, but not without hope; for her desire has been granted and prayers answered to depart this world of care and pain to be with her blessed Savior where sorrow and sighing shall flee away. She was converted in her youth and united with Snyder's congregation, of which she always was a faithful member until God called her home. She always sought the Lord's house when health permitted. The last seven years she was denied this privilege, many a time. After one week's illness of pneumonia she passed peacefully on. The home loses a loving mother, the Church a faithful believer, but our loss is her eternal gain. Funeral services were conducted at the home by H. W. Stevanus assisted at the church by Jonas Snider and Simon Martin. Texts, I Pet. 3: 21, 22; Acts 1 : 11. Interment in adjoining cemetery.

      "In silence she suffered,
      With a smile her pain she bore,
      Until God's angel whispered
      'Come home and suffer no more."'
