      Biehn. - Mary U. Bowman, beloved wife of Aaron S. Biehn, near Guernsey, Sask., passed away on Sept. 25, 1924; aged 61 y. 1 m. She was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., Aug. 26, 1863. On Oct. 24, 1882, she was married to Bro. Biehn. This union was blessed with 5 sons and 1 daughter. In the year 1905 they moved to Saskatchewan, where they resided till her demise. Five weeks before she died she was found to have a cancer of the stomach, and with much suffering yet with Christian fortitude she calmly awaited her end. Her sick chamber was a scene of inspiration to those privileged to visit with her, as she was rejoicing in the prospect of her coming glory. Valuable parting admonitions were given to her children. The services at the house were conducted by I. S. Rosenberger, and at the Sharon Mennonite Church by Henry Bartel in German and E. S. Hallman in English. Text, I Cor. 15: 51,52. The remains were laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery.
