      ROSENBERGER
      - On the 10th of April, 1893, in Preston, Waterloo Co., Ontario, Bro. Joseph Rosenberger, aged 68 years, 3 months and 16 days. Bro. Rosenberger had been suffering of dropsy for some time. He had spent nearly all his life in self-righteousness, yet during his sickness and the many severe spells, he experienced his lost condition and repented of his sins, and five days previous to his death he united with the church by baptism, from that time on he had peace and joyfully awaited death to make an end to his suffering. He remained conscious till the very last. He left a bright hope for the future. He was buried on the 13th in Hagey's graveyard. Funeral services by _____ Pomeroy and Jacob B. Gingrich from Isa. 38: 1.
