  • Notes 
    • Zehr. - Mattie Wagler, wife of Pre. Christian S. Zehr, was born May 18, 1864; died at their home near Wellesley, Ont., June 25 ,1928; aged 64 y. 1 m. 7 d. On Jan. 25, 1886, she was united in marriage with Christian S. Zehr. To this union was born 1 son (Aaron W.). She leaves her bereaved husband, an aged mother, 1 son, 1 foster daughter (Mary - Mrs. Moses Erb), 2 grandchildren (Mary and Harold Zehr) 3 sisters (Mary - Mrs. Jonathan Jantzi, Barbara-Mrs. Christian B. Jantzi, Katie - Mrs. Joe K. Schwartzentruber), 3 brothers (Aaron, Isaac, - Simeon, who preceded her to the great beyond), besides many other relatives and friends. In her young years she gave her heart to Jesus, united with the Amish Mennonite church, and stood in her faith to the end. She will be greatly missed in her home, neighborhood, and Church in which her voice was always heard among the rest while singing. She was a loving companion, a kind mother, and her kindness was not only shown to her immediate family but her home was always open to strangers. On Wednesday, May 30, 1928, she took a paralytic stroke from which she never recovered. Funeral services were held June 27 at the home by Bro. Christian Gascho and at the church by Brethren Chris. Schultz, Daniel Steinman, and Daniel Lebold.

      "One by one we soon shall gather
      Not as we have gathered here
      Bowed and broken - but the rather
      In Eternal youth appear."
      Rene Erb.
