  • Notes 
    • Snider - Susannah (Horst), wife of Bishop Jonas Snider, was born June 2, 1862, passed away at her home near Waterloo, Ont., July 3, 1933; aged 71 y. 1 m. 1 d. Acute dilatation of the heart caused her death, which came as a shock to all. She was engaged in her household duties until two hours before her death. She manifested a special joy the last two days of her life. As the age of seventeen she accepted Christ as her Savior and united with the Mennonite church, remaining true and faithful till the end. Her special vision of the cross had been a great help to her in life's experiences. July 5, 1887, she was united in marriage to Jonas Snider. She was a loving and faithful companion and mother, and was a great help both temporarily and spiritually, in the ministry and the home. She was deeply concerned for the spiritual welfare of the rising generation and of the Church in general. There remain to mourn their loss, her husband, 8 sons, 2 daughters (Edgar, Clayton, Deldon, Addison, Walter, Gilbert, all of Waterloo; Omar of New Dundee; Benjamin, Clara, Hannah at home). Three daughters died in infancy. There remain also 25 grandchildren and a host of relatives and friends. Her only sister (Mary - Mrs. Moses Hunsberger) predeceased her Dec. 1, 1932. Funeral services were held July 6, and conducted at the home by Noah Hunsberger, and at the First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, by Moses H. Shantz, assisted by M.M. Brubacher and J.B. Martin. Text, Num. 23: 10. "Let me die the death of the righteous, and let my last end be like his." Interment in adjoining cemetery.
