The deceased was a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Moses Hostetler and was born on the Hostetler homestead adjoining New Hamburg, and now owned by Mr. John Ritz. She spent her entire life in this community and being possessed of a charming and lovable disposition she endeared herself to a wide circle of friends.

There are left in bereavement two sons and five daughters. Three children predeceased her. The remaining family are Moses H. Shantz near New Dundee, Ephraim Shantz, near Haysville, Mrs. John E. Bingeman, New Hamburg, Mrs. Titus Kolb, of Kitchener, Mrs. Joseph Salzman, of Petersburg, and Mrs. Frank Miller, of Millersville, Ohio.
