  • Notes 
    • Keffer.-Hannah Catherine, only child of the late Mr. and Mrs. Amos Schiedel, was born near Breslau, Ont., Jan.23, 1892; died in the Kitchener-Waterloo Hospital, Feb. 14, 1942; aged 50 y. 22 d. In early life she united with the Cressman Mennonite Church, Breslau, where she re-mained a member until death. Jan.27, 1915, she was united in marriage with Jerry Keffer. To this union were born 3 sons (Walter of Galt, Gordon who died in infancy; and Carl, at home) and 3 daughters (Edith of Kitchener, Mary at home, and Hannah who died in infancy). Sister Keffer suffered much during the past few years, and at last the Lord has seen best to release her. She gave a good testimony of peace with her Saviour. May we bow in submission to His will. Our loss is her gain. The funeral was held Feb. 18 from her late home in Bloomingdale, to the Cressman Church for services, and the adjoining cemetery for interment. Minis-ters: H. W. Stevanus and Oscar Burkholder. Text, Matt. 12: 50.
