  • Notes 
    • Roth. - Barbara, daughter of Christian K. and Leah Erb Lichti, beloved wife of Bro. Benjamin S. Roth of New Hamburg, Ont., was born near St. Agatha, Ont., Sept. 27, 1875; died at her home at New Hamburg on Aug. 16, 1942; aged 66 y. 10 m. 20 d. March 8, 1893, she was united in matrimony to Bro. Roth and together they shared the joys and sorrows of life for over 49 years. To this union were born 8 children, 3 having preceded her in death. She leaves her loving husband, 4 sons, and 1 daughter (John of Petersburg; Nickolaus of New Hamburg; Mabel, wife of Melvin Bender, near New Hamburg; Lorne of Tavistock; and Alvin, at home), 19 grandchildren, 2 brothers (Christian of Baden, Joel of Tavistock). Two brothers and 1 sister, with her parents, also preceded her to the great beyond. In her youth she accepted Christ as her personal Saviour and united with the A.M. congregation of Wilmot, remaining a faithful member until death. Her health had been failing somewhat for nearly two years, but she was able to do her work, never com-plaining. They had been to church together on Sunday morning, went home and had a meal as usual, and while taking some things down in the cellar she fell down unconscious. Inside of twenty minutes her spirit had taken its flight. Our loss is her gain. Funeral services were held Aug. 19 at the home by Bros. Elmer Swartzentruber and Ben Gingerich, and at the church by Bros. M. O. Jantzi and Peter Nafziger.
