  • Notes 
    • Witmer. - Almeda Hallman, beloved wife of J. W. Witmer, was born in Howick, Ont., and died in Petersburg, Ont., Nov. 28, 1920, in her 42nd year. She united with the Mennonite church when yet in her teens and was a faithful member till death. She leaves a deeply stricken husband, seven children (Vernon H., Luella Mae, Grace Viola, Edward H., William I., John E., and Melvin C.) and many relatives and friends. Morgan R. preceded her in death 2 years ago. Services were conducted at house and church by Bro. Manasseh Hallman. Buried in adjoining cemetery.

      "We think of her in silence,
      No eye may see us weep;
      But deep in our hearts concealed,
      Her memory we will keep.
      We miss her kind and tender voice,
      Her fond and tender care;
      Our home is dark, now, Mother,
      We miss you everywhere."

      A friend.
