  • Notes 
    • Schwartzentruber. - Elizabeth (Litwiller) Schwartzentruber, beloved wife of Jacob Schwartzentruber, was born near St. Agatha, Ont., April 12, 1873; died at the same place March 31, 1929; aged 55 y. 11 m. 18 d. She was united in marriage to Jacob Schwartzentruber, Feb. 21, 1893. To this union were born three children. She is survived by her bereaved husband, 2 sons, and 1 daughter (Moses, Rachel, wife of Milton Litwiller, and Clarence). She is also survived by 6 grandchildren, 2 brothers, 2 sisters, and a host of other relatives and friends. She united with the A. M. Church in her youth and remained a faithful member until death. The immediate cause of her death was apoplexy. She passed away unexpectedly after an illness of three days, being unconscious all but the first three hours. She was a kind and loving wife and mother, always willing to help others. We feel our loss sadly, but we know that our Father doeth all things well. Funeral services were held at the home by Peter Nafziger and at the A. M. Church by Daniel Steinman, Wm. Lauver, and Daniel Jutz. Interment in adjoining cemetery.1a
