  • Notes 
    • Cressman.-Mary Ann, daughter of Mary Shantz and Joseph Nahrgang, was born near New Hamburg, Ont., Nov. 18, 1864; died at her home, Kitchener, Ont., Sept. 10, 1948; aged 83 y. 9 m. 23 d. On June 28, 1887, she was united in marriage to Menno C. Cressman. In 1892 they moved to Berlin (now Kitchener). Surviving are her husband, one daughter (Grace Geraldine-Mrs. M. L. Shuh), one son (Jo-seph Boyd), 8 grandchildren, 6 great-grandchil-dren, one brother (Menno, New Hamburg), and one sister (Nancy-Mrs. Ervin Snyder, Baden, Ont.). She was a member of the First Mennonite Church of Kitchener for fifty-six years and until the end of her earthly life maintained a radiant witness. She was active in the organization of the local sewing circle in 1908 and in the years following served in various official capacities of the local circle as well as the Ontario district circles. She also served for a number of years on the executive committee of the church-wide organization of the American and Canadian circles, part of the time as president. Funeral services were con-ducted Sept. 14 at the First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, by Merle Shantz, Oscar Burkholder, S. F. Coffman, and John Kehl.
