      KUNKEL. - Hannah Kunkel (nee Burgey) was born near Mannheim, Ont., July 25, 1857; died after a lingering illness of tuberculosis of the bowels for two years, April 11, 1914; aged 56y. 8m. 17d. At the age of 16 she was converted and united with the Mennonite Church, remaining faithful unto death. In July, 1889, she was married to John Kunkel, Waterloo, to which union were born 6 children, of whom 1 son preceded her, leaving to mourn their loss a husband, 1 daughter and 4 sons. She leaves a bright evidence that she has gone to be with Christ, which is far better. Funeral services at the home by Noah Stauffer and at the church by Noah Hunsberger from Heb. 4: 9, and by Jonas Snider from II Cor. 4: 16-18. Burial in David Eby's cemetery. May God abundantly bless the sorrowing family.

      Kunkel - Hannah Bergey, wife of John Kunkel, of near Waterloo, Ont., died Apr. 11, 1914, of intestinal tuberculosis. Her age was 56 y. 8 m. 17 d. She leaves to mourn her death a husband, 1 daughter, 4 sons, 4 brothers, and 3 sisters. She was a faithful member of the Mennonite Church for almost 40 years. She was buried at the Waterloo Cemetery April 15. The funeral services were conducted at the home by Pre. Noah Stauffer and at the church by Bro. Noah Hunsberger in English from Heb. 4: 9, and by Pre. Jonas Snyder in German from II Cor. 4: 16-18, preaching to a crowded church. Her friends have the consolation to feel that they mourn not as those who have no hope.
