  • Notes 
    • Ramseyer.--Mattie (Gingerich), beloved wife of Joe Ramseyer, died Apr. 24, 1911, at the age of 41 y. 5 m. 3 d. In 1891 she was married to Joe Ramseyer and to this union were born 8 children; one boy preceded her to the glory world. She leaves to mourn her departure a sorrowing husband, 3 daughters, 4 sons, a mother, 2 brothers and a sister. She united with the Amish Church when young in years and was a faithful and active member to the time of her death. This was an unexpected call for friends and acquaintances but we all know that we have to go that way sooner or later. The last words that she spoke to her family were, "I'd like to stay with you longer, but the world I am going to is far nicer than the one we are living in now." Her remains were laid to rest Apr. 26, 1911, in the Steinmann cemetery. Services were conducted by Bro. Daniel Steinmann and Bro. Jacob Bender. Text, Psa. 55:22. The funeral was largely attended.

      "Dearest mother, thou hast left us,
      Here thy loss we deeply feel,
      But 'tis God that hath bereft us,
      He can all our sorrows heal."
