  • Notes 
    • Schiedel.-Mary, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Hefky, was born in Waterloo Twp., Ont., May 26, 1859; died at Galt, Ont., Hospital, after a lengthy illness, April 10, 1949; age 89 y. 10 m. 14 d. The immediate cause of her death was a fall in her home a few days previous. Her husband (Menno Schiedel) passed away seventeen years ago. Two sons (Lanson and John) also predeceased her. Surviving are one son (Allen Kossuth, Ont.), one daughter (Ida-Mrs. Jacob Randall, Kossuth), 23 grandchildren, 25 great-grandchildren, and one brother (John C., Drayton, Ont.) Sixty-four years ago she was converted; she united with the Cressman Mennonite congregation, Breslau, Ont., remaining faithful through a long pilgrimage. She was the oldest member of the congregation, both in age and length of membership. She was ever ready to tell the story of her conversion, and her last testimony was one of determination to hold on to the end of the journey. Funeral services were held on April 13 at the Cressman Church, in charge of J. W. Witmer and Oscar Burkholder. Text: Job 19: 25.
