  • Notes 
    • Mayer. - Mary Jutzi Mayer, wife of John L. Mayer, was born Nov. 26, 1860 in Waterloo Co., Ont.; died at her home near Pigeon, Mich., Aug. 29, 1931. On Dec. 4, 1883, she was united in marriage to John Mayer who preceded her to the glory world about five months ago. She leaves to mourn her departure: 4 children, two daughters, Mrs. Ben Gingerich of Kalona, Ia., and Lydia at home; two sons, Solomon and Ezra of Windsor township; 14 grandchildren; 1 brother, John Jutzi of Ont., Canada; and a host of relatives and friends. One daughter Emma, Mrs. Joel Widrich of N Y., preceded her in death 13 years ago. In her youth she accepted Christ as her personal Savior and became a member of the Amish Mennonite Church. She was a faithful member to the end. Her chief aim and desire was to see her children faithful in the Lord, which was her daily prayer. By her departure we keenly feel our loss of a mother's devoted prayer life. In her last days she often expressed her desire to go home but always was resigned to the Lord's will. Her health failed the last two years and her death was caused by a sudden attack of dropsy of which she became a victim seven weeks before she died. Funeral services were held at the Pigeon River Church, August 31, conducted by Edwin Albrecht in English, text, II Pet. 1:14, 15; and in German by M. S. Zehr. text, II Tim. 3:6-8. Ben Swartzendruber of California also took part in the services.
