    • Bender - Lydia Miller Bender was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., April 7, 1846; died Sept. 23, 1916, near Milford, Nebr,; aged 70 y. 5 m. 16 d. She was married to David Bender, April 1, 1875, and lived in matrimony 37 years. Father Bender preceded her to the spirit world four years ago. She leaves to mourn her departure, 3 sisters, 6 step-children and a host of friends. Mother Bender united with the A. M. Church in her youth. She was a faithful member to the end, and her only desire was to go home to the spirit world and be at home with her Redeemer. She was a kind and loving mother and tried to rear the children as a Christian mother should. She always filled her place in church when health world permit. We mourn not as those who have no hope. Her remains were laid to rest in the East Fairview Cemetery Sept. 26. Funeral services by Elder Peter Kennel in German and Pre. F. Gingerich and W. Eicher in English.
