      Snyder.--Bro. Isaac C. Snyder died at Didsbury, Alta., on Sunday, May 29, 1910, at the home of his daughter, Maggie; aged 60 y. 2 m. 17 d. Funeral services were held at the West Zion Mennonite Church, also interment. Services at the home were conducted by Bro. John Lehman, at the church by Bro. Israel Shantz. Text, II Tim. 4: 6-8. The family, 4 sons and 2 daughters, lose a kind father, and the Church a consistent member. Bro. Snyder was always in his seat at church when health permitted. He was deeply concerned about the welfare of the Church. What is our loss is but his gain. May his good example ever live on in the lives of others. Israel R. Shantz.
