  • Notes 
    • Salzmann. - Sister Veronica Litwiller, beloved wife of Joseph Salzmann, was born July 13, 1885; died of heart trouble May 25, 1920; aged 34 y. 10 m. 13 d. She was united in matrimony to Joseph Salzmann Oct. 17, 1908, which union was blessed with 5 children (Gladys, Sanford, Florin, and Clifford) - one died in infancy. She leaves husband, 4 children, parents, 3 brothers, 4 sisters and many relatives and friends. She united with the A. M. Church when in her teens and remained faithful to the end. We can hardly realize that she is gone, but we believe that our loss is her eternal gain. The community feels that they have lost the earthly presence of a sister and friend and that the number was enlarged in heaven. Two days before her death she called her daughter to her bed side and selected the hymns for her funeral. Funeral services were held at the A. M. Church near St. Agatha, conducted by Peter Boshart and Moses Shantz, using for the text, "Set thine house in order for thou shall die and not live". May God comfort the bereaved ones.

      "Death has called one from our family;
      Whom we loved and cherished dear;
      She has left us here so lonely,
      We can't help but shed a tear.
      Oh can it be that she has left us,
      She who always had a smile?
      Yes, she's gone but soon we'll meet her,
      'Twill only be a little while." By her sister
      .
