      ____________________

      Shantz. - Anna Bowman, beloved wife of W. E. Shantz, Berlin, Ont., died Aug. 15, 1916; aged 65 y. 6 m. 19 d. She was the third eldest daughter of the late Pre. Moses Bowman of Manheim. She leaves to mourn their loss a loving husband, 4 daughters, and 3 sons, besides relatives and friends.The funeral services were held Aug. 22 at the Berlin Mennonite Church, conducted by Bros. U. K. Weber and S. F. Coffman, Psa. 23 was read and the text chosen was II Cor. 5: 1: " For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens."Sister Shantz was a faithful Christian and member of the Mennonite Church since her youth. She also had the pleasure of seeing all her family brought into the fold of Christ. Her presence in the community and at services will be greatly missed for she was of a kind and loving disposition always ready and anxious to help those in need; and the hungry stranger who came to her door was fed and sheltered. " As ye have done it unto one of the least of these, ye did it unto me." She suffered from a complication of diseases for about 18 months, being cared for by her daughters, who deemed it a great privilege to minister to her every need. Her sufferings at times were very intense, but she never murmured or complained, bearing all with Christian fortitude and patience. The end came unexpectedly as a result of heart failure, but she always testified that she was ready to meet her Savior and the family need not mourn as those having no hope, for " Though she be dead, yet she liveth."
