  • Notes 
    • Nahrgang. --- Esther Nahrgang, was born in Waterloo Twp., Ont., Jan. 20, 1859; died at St. Mary's Hospital, Kitchener, Ont., March 19, 1950; aged 91 y. 1 m. 29 d. Her husband (Josias Nahrgang) passed away in 1926. Three children (Melinda, Ida, and Lanson) also predeceased her. Three remain one son (Vernon, Port Elgin, Ont.), one daughter (Hilda, Port Credit, Ont.), and 10 grandchildren.. Sister Nahrgang accepted Christ in her youth, was a member of the Cressman Mennonite Church for many years, and at the close of the long journey which God permitted her to travel, gave good evidence of her hope in Christ. About twenty years ago she moved to Port Elgin to live with her son, and had recently moved to the Braeside Home, Preston, Ont., where she richly enjoyed the companionship of elderly Christian people. The funeral was held on March 22, in the Cressman Mennonite Church, with Merle Shantz and Oscar Burkholder in charge. Text: Ps. 91: 16.
