  • Notes 
    • Wanner.-Mary Ann Witmer, wife of the late John Wanner, passed peacefully away at her home in Waterloo Twp., early Tuesday morning, Oct. 19, 1943; aged 87 years. She had been in fair health until the time of her decease. Al-though the Master's summons came suddenly, we rest assured that she has passed happily on to her eternal reward. She united with the Mennonite Church in her early womanhood and remained a faithful member until death. She is survived by 2 sons (Nelson, Alberta; Roy, at home), 3 daughters (Mrs. Jacob Mueller, Preston; Mrs. Henry Rhodey, Glennmorris; Mrs. William Seftel, Doon), 22 grandchildren, 52 great-grandchildren, and a brother (Abram Witmer, Kitchener). She was preceded in death by a daughter (Mrs. Gus Paulitzki, Strasburg) in 1919, and by her husband in 1936. Funeral services were held Oct. 21 at her late residence and at the Wanner Mennonite Church, near Hespeler, Ont., conducted by Bro. J. W. Witmer. Text, Phil. 1: 21. Interment in adjoining cemetery.
