      ________________________________________________________

      Schiedel - Mary Detwiler, youngest daughter of Rudolph and Susannah (Bingeman) Detwiler, was born near Bloomingdale, Ont., Nov. 22, 1857; died at her home in Bloomingdale Jan. 21,1935; aged 77 y. 1 m. 30 d. On March 14, 1882, she was married to Amos Schiedel, who, with one daughter Hannah Catherine (Mrs. Jerry Keffer), 4 grandchildren, 1 sister (Mrs. Albert Snyder,Near Bloomingdale), 1 brother (Rudolph, Ingersoll, Ont.), and many relatives and friends remain to mourn her departure. Duringthe past summer her strength began to fail and the last six weeks of her life she was bedfast, sinking very rapidly at the end. In 1886 she united with the Cressman Mennonite Church at Breslau, and upon their removal to her late home she transferred her membership to the Snyder church. To these churches she was a faithful member to the end. Her last audible words were, "Take me home. "This along with other expressions give us a sure hope that she has gone to be with her Lord. The funeral was held Jan. 23 from her late residence in Bloomingdale to the Cressman Mennonite Church, Breslau, for services. Burial took place in the adjoining cemetery. Ministers, H. W. Stevanus and Oscar Burkholder. Text, Matt. 24: 13.
