  • Notes 
    • LICHTY. - BARBARA (ERB) Lichty was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., July 6, 1861; died on Dec. 13, 1932; aged 71 y. 5 m. 7 d. Death occurred rather suddenly. She was on a visit to her daughter (Mrs. Cyranius Kipfer at Waterloo) and while there but a few hours was stricken with paralysis. After an illness of three days, she fell asleep in Jesus to awake in the great resurrection morning. At an early age she accepted Christ as her Savior and united with the Amish Mennonite Church, of which she was a faithful member till God saw fit to call her home. On March 30, 1879, she was united in holy marriage to Bro. Joseph F. Lichty. She was always concerned about her children, and tried to bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. She leaves a sorrowing husband, 2 sons (Joseph E. and John E.), 6 daughters (Mrs. J. S. Wagler, Mrs. N. S. Roth, Mrs. Amos Kipfer, Mrs. J. S. Roth, Mrs. Cyranius Kipfer, and Mrs. Ezra Kropf), 1 brother (John Sterie), 1 sister (Mrs. Charles Alexandra), 59 grandchildren, and a host of other relatives and friends. Funeral was held Dec. 16 from her late home near Wellesley, Ont., with services at the St. Agatha A. M. Church and cemetery, conducted by the brethren, Christian Gascho and Peter Boshart, of the same church.

      "The call was short, the shock severe,
      To part with her we loved so dear;
      Our hope's in heaven that we may meet,
      And then our joy will be complete."
