  • Notes 
    • Baer.- Adeline (Schmitt) Baer, daughter of the late John B. Schmitt, was born Jan. 6, 1873, near Baden, Ont.; passed away at her late home near New Dundee, Ont., Jan. 11, 1944, following an illness of 3 weeks. In 1900 she was married to Moses Baer and moved to a farm about one mile west of New Dundee where she lived until the time of her death. She was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church. She lived a quiet life with a consistent testimony. Besides her husband, she is survived by a daughter (Leah, wife of Edgar Hallman, New Dundee), an adopted daughter (Elsie, wife of Omar Snider, New Hamburg), a son (Josiah, at home), and 5 grandchildren. One son (Gilbert) predeceased her in 1923. Also surviving are 2 sisters (Mrs. Joseph Weber, Carstairs, Alta.; Mrs. Irvin Snider, Guernsey, Sask.), and 3 brothers (Moses, a bishop, Petersburg, Ont.; Herman, Kitchener, Ont.; Jonathan, Calgary, Alta.). Funeral services were held Jan. 15, at 2 p.m., at her late residence, and at the Blenheim Mennonite Church, Bros. Moses N. Baer (a nephew), and Bishop Mannasseh Hallman in charge. Texts: II Cor. 4: 1518; Ruth 1: 18. Interment in the adjoining cemetery.
