  • Notes 
    • Martin. - Naomi (Weber) Martin was born in Waterloo, Ont., June 29, 1896; died at the Toronto Mission Home Friday evening, May 20, 1921; aged 24 y. 10 m. 22 d. She was united in marriage to Nelson B. Martin March 21, 1917. To this union were born twins who died in infancy. Sister Martin's illness was of very short duration. She had been visiting at her father's home for a few days. On Thursday morning, May 19, she complained of sore throat and felt that she had better go home to the Mission. On her arrival there at noon she took a few hours' rest after which she felt a good deal better. The physician said that there is nothing serious, only an attack of [tonsilitis]. The following day there was a turn for the worse and at 8 o'clock in the evening she went to be with her Lord. She confessed Christ at the early age of twelve and gave a brilliant testimony of absolute trust in Jesus until her hope was realized. Her labors at the Mission were greatly blessed among the children and the mothers. We think she will be greatly missed, yet are firmly convinced that this is God's will, and that His way is best. She leaves to mourn her sudden departure a loving husband, an aged grandmother, father, mother, five sisters and seven brothers, as well as a large circle of relatives and friends. A funeral service was held at the Mission on Sunday afternoon conducted by Bro. L. W. Hoover, Markham. On Monday morning the body was taken to her father's home, north of Waterloo, from whence the funeral was held in the afternoon. The funeral services in the Waterloo Church were conducted by the brethren Jonas Snider, S. F. Coffman, and Oscar Burkholder. Texts, I Tim. 6: 12; I Cor. 13: 13; Matt. 24: 44.
