  • Notes 
    • JUTZI. - Bro. Benjamin Jutzi was born in East Zorra, Oxford Co., Ont., May 14, 1877; died Feb. 10, 1918, at Kitchener and Waterloo Hospital where he underwent an operation for gallstone and appendicitis, of which he never rallied. He united with the Amish Mennonite Church in his early youth. On Feb. 27, 1908, he was united in matrimony with Sister Lizzie Jantzi, who now survives him with one daughter. Bro. Ben took a deep interest in church work. He was superintendent of the Amish Mennonite Sunday school of Wilmot, for which he had ideal talents. He was laid to rest Feb. 14, near St. Agatha, followed by a large concourse of relatives and friends. Peace be to his ashes.
      "Far from affliction, toil and care
      The happy soul has fled;
      The breathless clay shall slumber here,
      Among the silent dead."
