She was a strong, healthy woman till about a year ago when it was discovered that she had cancer under her arm. She took electric treatment which proved a success. She suffered very much of the burn of the last treatment, but was healing nicely when light paralytic strokes set in, one after another, which ended her life in a short time. Funeral services May 26, conducted at the house by Daniel Lebold, and at the Poole Mennonite Church by Christian Zehr and Christian Schultz. Interment in the adjoining cemetery.
