    • Shantz. --- Anna, daughter of Henry and Lydia (Shantz) Steckle, was born Feb. 17, 1872, in Waterloo Co., Ont.; died at the Samaritan Hospital in Bay City, Mich., July 22, 1940; aged 68 y. 5 m. 5 d. She was married to Ananias C. Shantz, Feb. 16, 1897, in Kitchener, Ont. They moved to Fairview, Mich., in 1908. She accepted Christ as her personal Saviour at the age of 33 years, untied with the Mennonite Church, and remained faithful through life, leaving a ringing testimony to her family. Her years were full of pain and her desire was to be with her Lord, where there is no pain if that was God's will. She leaves a bereaved husband, four sons and four daughters (Ivan of Stoughton, Wis.; Ada, Mrs. Oliver Handrich; Melvin, Ernest, and Clifford, of Fairview, Mich.; Alma, Mrs. Floyd F. Bontrager; Emma, Mrs. Edgar Yoder; and Edna of Midland, Mich.; and Naomi Markby at home whom she loved as one of her own children; 26 grandchildren, 3 brothers; 7 sisters and a host of relatives and friends. One granddaughter (Lola Handrich) preceded her in death. Funeral services were held July 25 at the Fairview Mennonite Church in charge of Bro. Moses Steiner. Text, Zech. 14: 7. Her body was laid to rest in the Fairview Cemetery.
