      Brubacher. - Louisa, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Cressman, was born at Natchez, Ont., June 1, 1860; died July 5, 1934; aged 74 y. 1 m. 5 d. She was married to Bro. Dillman Brubacher, Sept. 22, 1881, who predeceased her 34 years ago, as did also 1 son and 2 daughters. She is survived by 2 daughters (Henrietta of Canton, Ohio; Ida of Kitchener), 2 sons (Stanley of Roseville; Shannon of Waterloo), 5 grandchildren, and 1 sister (Mrs. John K. Devitt, Didsbury, Alta.), and one like part of the family (Miss Margaret Baird of Fort Smith, Ark). She united with the Mennonite Church in her youth, and was a faithful and consistent member all through the years. She was an ideal mother and grandmother. She is to be appreciated for her untiring perseverance in the midst of hardships, consequent on the passing of her husband 34 years ago. She was a woman of abiding convictions, which she intelligently passed on to others. She reached sunset, with many friends. The home, the Church, and the community will miss her, and will remember her with fragrant memories. The services were conducted at the First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, Ont., by C. F. Derstine, 0. Burkholder, and V. K. Weber. Theme, "The Broken Alabaster Box - The Fragrant Life."
