      SCHMITT. - Susannah, daughter of Jacob and Mary (Weber) Brubacher was born near Bridgeport, Waterloo Co., Ont., Feb. 1, 1841. She was married to Geo. B. Schmitt in 1866. To this union were born five children of whom 3 still live. She died Jan. 5, 1930, at the ripe old age of 88 y. 11 m. 4 d. There remain to mourn her departure; Mary (Mrs. Samuel Good), Lizzie (Mrs. Simeon Good), and Jacob of Elida, Ohio, at present teaching at Hesston College. Also, 15 grandchildren, 7 great-grandchildren, one brother (Christian), and many relatives and friends. She was converted at the age of 19, united with the Mennonite Church and lived an exemplary Christian life to the end. She was widely known and much respected for her sterling Christian qualities, for her devotion to her family, and for her interest in the welfare of others. In early youth she committed to memory many poems and songs. During the last few years her memory failed in many things, but these songs stayed with her. One of the last things she did in full consciousness was to sing that grand hymn, "Asleep in Jesus." Funeral services Jan. 8, were conducted by Jesse B. Martin and C. F. Derstine at St. Jacob's Mennonite Church. Interment at Martin's Cemetery.
