      ______________

      Brubacher. - Katherine Beechy was born Sept. 5, 1841. On July 22, 1860, she was married to David Brubacher. This union was blessed with 9 children, of whom 8 are still living; also 38 grandchildren, and 1 great-grandchild. From early youth she was a member of the Mennonite Church and always attended services when she could, but being subject to attacks of gall stones, there was many a time in the last 10 or 12 years when she could not leave home. She had a very active mind and when not suffering too much, always found great pleasure in reading her Bible and the Gospel Herald. She bore her sufferings patiently, but had no desire to recover from her late illness which was a complication of rheumatism and pneumonia. She died Mar. 20, 1915; aged 73 y. 6 m. 15 d. Her husband preceded her about 10 years. Funeral services March 22, at the Conestoga Church, conducted by Ezra Martin and Tobias Martin. Interment in adjoining cemetery.
