      ______________________________


      Rudy.-Lydia Horst, wife of Christian Rudy, was born Mar. 17, 1838; died Sept. 19, 1917; aged 72 y. 6 m. 2 d. Early in life she united with the Mennonite Church and remained faithful to the end. She lived in Waterloo Co., Ont., up to about 7 years ago, when she went to visit her daughter, Mrs. Moses Sauder in Pennsylvania. While there she took sick and spent nearly all of the seven years in bed, but death has at last relieved her of all earth's cares and pains. The remains were brought back home where very impressive sermons were preached Sept. 22, at St. Jacob's Mennonite Church, Waterloo Co., Ont., by Noah Hunsberger in English, from Psa. 115.16, and Jonas Snider in German from Psa. 39.4.
