  • Notes 
    • Jantzi. - Rudolph B., son of Michael Jantzi, was born at St. Agatha, Ont., Oct. 16, 1852; died at Baden, Ont., Oct. 23, 1935; aged 83 y. 9 d. He was united in marriage to Christina Miller of Baden, Oct. 17, 1877. To this union were born 2 sons and 3 daughters, 1 daughter having died in infancy. Two sons (Rudolph and Michael), 1 daughter (Christena - Mrs. Peter Nafziger), preceded him. His beloved companion died May 9, 1935. He leaves 1 daughter (Lizzie - Mrs. Noah G. Steinman) of Baden, 5 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, 2 brothers (Jacob of Atwood, Moses of Fergus, Ont.), 3 sisters (Mrs. John Litwiller of St. Agatha, Mrs. John B. Jutzi of Petersburg, Ont., and Mrs. Jacob Gascho of Michigan). Two grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren, 10 brothers, and 1 sister have also preceded him. He united with the Amish Mennonite Church in his youth and remained true to the faith till death. Six years ago he suffered from a stroke which affected his left side and since then had been unable to use his left hand; but he was able to get around fairly well. The last year his mind was failing. Twelve weeks before he died he broke his hip, which confined him to his bed. He gradually grew weaker till Jesus came to call him home. He was always glad for visitors, desiring them to read the Word of God and have prayer with him. He also very much enjoyed when someone sang for him. Although his mind was failing, he often repeated the Lord¡s prayer and sang, "I'm going home to die no more." He was a kind and loving father, grandfather, and friend, and was respected by all who knew him. Funeral services were conducted by Bro. Christ Gascho at the home and by Bros. Christ Schultz and Dan O. Jutzi at the Upper Street Amish Mennonite Church. Burial was made in the adjoining cemetery.

      "Father, now your place is empty,
      And your face we see no more;
      But we hope again to meet you,
      Over on the other shore."
