      ___________________________

      Snyder.--Sarah Reist Snyder, wife of Levi Snyder, deceased ten years ago, was born July 23, 1862, near Kossuth; died at her home on the farm now owned by Bro. Clarence Rudy near Hespeler, Ont., July 27, 1941; living just four days in her 80th year. On this farm she and her husband lived ever since they were married, Sept. 17, 1884. All her married life and ten years since her husband,s death, was lived on the above-mentioned farm, except the last three years she spent the winter season with her daughter, Mrs. Frank Henry of Elkhart, Ind. She leaves to mourn her departure a family of 10 children, 40 grandchildren, and 5 great-grandchildren. Of the immediate family there are 2 sons (Abel of North Carolina, and Gordon of Guelph) and 8 daughters (Mrs. B. B. Shantz, Preston, Ont.; Mrs. Clayton Biehn, Saskatchewan; Mrs. Gordon Hagey, Galt, Ont.; Mrs. Clarence Rudy, Hespeler; Mrs. Isaiah Kinzie, Guelph, Ont.; Mrs. Frank Henry, Elkhart, Ind.; Mrs. Menno Moyer, Blair, Ont.; and Mrs. Howard Weber, Kitchener). Two sisters also survive her, one in Michigan and the other in Port Elgin. She was a member of the Wanner Mennonite Church, and when health permitted she was always there taking an active interest in all the work of the congregation. As we see from the above, she lived 57 years on the site of the earthly home which she and her husband were instrumental in building; but she has gone to her heavenly home. Sister Snyder loved to sing, and the last hymn she was heard to sin a few days before her death was:

      "My heav'nly home is bright and fair,
      Nor pain nor death can enter there;
      Its glitt,ring tow,rs the sun outshine,
      That heav,nly mansion shall be mine."
