      _____________

      Snyder. - Lucinda, daughter of Samuel and Barbara Cressman, was born near New Dundee, Ont., April 29, 1864; died Aug. 23, 1942, at the Kitchener-Waterloo Hospital; aged 78 y. 3 m. 29 d. She was united in marriage to John Snyder, who preceded her in death 20 years. Her only son passed away four years ago. She is survived by 4 grandchildren and 1 brother (M. C. Cressman, of Kitchener), who is the last surviving member of a family of 13 children. In addition to the above she is survived by 2 stepsons (Zenes of Ontario and Oscar of Saskatchewan), by 3 stepdaughters (Mrs. E. Gabel, Mrs. A. S. Gingrich, and Mrs. Walter Hostetter), 26 step-grandchildren, and 11 step-great-grandchildren. In her early womanhood she became a member of the Mennonite Church at Blenheim, Ont. After marriage she was associated with the Biehn congregation prior to her moving to Kitchener in early middle age. She was a loyal member of the First Mennonite Church at Kitchener until the time of her death, which by the providence of God was as a messenger of mercy, relieving her of the in-firmities of age. A memorial service was held at the First Mennonite Church Aug. 25, in charge of Bro. Merle Shantz. Interment in adjoining cemetery.
