  • Notes 
    • Brubacher. Leah, daughter of the late Abraham and Susannah (Allgier) Martin, was born in Chicopee, Ont., Dec. 7, 1872; died at her home near St. Jacobs, Ont., June 23, 1932; aged 59 y. 6 m. 16 d. On Dec. 24, 1905, she was united in marriage to Noah B. Brubacher. This union was blessed with 2 sons and 3 daughters. She united with the Mennonite Church early in life and remained a faithful member until she was called to a higher service. She attended Sunday school and Church services regularly as long as health permitted. The last time she attended public worship was at communion services on April 10. She will be sadly missed as mother in the home, neighbor in the community, and worker in the Church. She was sick for 5 months, but only bedfast the last 3 weeks. She bore her afflictions without complaint. When she had sorrows and sufferings she bore them in silence in order that others might be happy. She was of a cheerful disposition, always had a ready hand to render help to the sick and needy. She leaves her husband and 5 children (Susanna (Mrs. R. Jantzie) of Jordon Station, Ont., Abram, Norm, Elma and Roy at home). Her step-mother, 3 brothers, and 4 sisters also survive, and many other relatives and friends. Her parents, 2 brothers and sisters preceded her in death. Funeral services were held June 25, conducted at the home by Bro. Jesse B. Martin, followed by services at the St. Jacobs Mennonite Church conducted by Bros. Jonas Snider and Moses Brubacher. Her body was laid to rest in the Hawksville Road Cemetery, there to await the return of the Lord.
