She was a daughter of the late Isaac and Elizabeth Rosenberger. She resided in Waterloo Co., Ont., until the death of her husband in 1941. Since that time she had made her home with her adopted daughter, Mrs. Melvin Cressman at Thorold. She had been ill for the past 7 weeks. In Nov., 1891, she became the bride of Joshua Shantz. To this union was born a daughter, Alberta, who died at the age of 2 years. In 1891 she united with the Mennonite Church to which faith she remained true until death. Surviving besides their adopted daughter are 6 grandchildren, 2 sisters (Mrs. Norman Shantz, Haysville; and Miss Elsie Rosenberger, New Dundee), 2 brothers (Isaiah, a minister, and Emery, both of New Dundee). The funeral was held the last day of the old year with a private service at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Omar Cressman near Dundee, Mrs. Cressman being her niece. This was followed by a public service at the Blenheim Mennonite Church. Funeral services were in charge of Bros. Manasseh Hallman and Moses N. Baer. Text, Ps. 17: 15. Burial in the Gieger Cemetery.
