  • Notes 
    • LICHTI - Catherine LICHTI (nee JANTZI) was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., Feb. 21, 1836; died July 30, 1923; aged 87y. 5m. 9d. On Oct. 5, 1858, she was married to Joseph B. LICHTI, living in matrimony over 23 years and in widowhood almost 42 years. She leaves to mourn her loss 4 sons, 5 daughters, 48 grandchildren, and 46 great-grandchildren. One son (Rudy) died in 1912, and 1 daughter in infancy. She is also survived by 1 brother (Chr. JANTZI), 1 half brother (David RISSER in Nebraska), and 2 half sisters, Mrs. Chr. BRUNK and Mrs. Annie BRUNK in Ontario. She always was in good health until this spring when she had an attack of broncho-pneumonia which returned again in June and left her too weak to recover. She was eagerly waiting to be taken home. She united with the Amish Mennonite Church when a young girl and remained faithful until death. Her Bible was her main pastime in her old age. Service at house was conducted by D. Lebold and at Wellesley A.M. Church by C.S. Zehr, Chr. Gascho, and J.R. Bender. Interment in adjoining cemetery.
