  • Notes 
    • Litwiller. - Veronica, daughter of the late Jacob and Katherine Schrag, passed away at the K.-W. Hospital after a lingering illness. She was born at Crossbill, Ont., Sept. 12, 1882 and left this world Nov. 29, 1940; aged 58 y. 2 m. 17 d. She leaves her sorrowing husband and 6 children: Laurene; Melvin; Manasseh; Phoebe (Mrs. Gordon Sanders) ; Madeline; and Velma. Three brothers also survive (Jacob of Lowville, N. Y.; Daniel of Kitchener; and Michael of Cleveland, O.). Her father, mother, and 3 sisters predeceased her. Her family keenly feel a great loss. Sister Litwiller will be remembered for her constant faith, her abiding peace, and restful poise of spirit, which found its life and inspiration by a moment by moment fellowship with God. The funeral services and interment were held at First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, Ont., in charge of Bros. C. F. Derstine, Merle Shantz, and Homer Berner. Theme: "The Present and Future Rest of the People of God." "Not alone, down the valley, Passed she on without a friend; Jesus led the way before her, He was with her to the end."
