    • Good.- Samuel, son of the late Jonas and Elizabeth (Snyder) Good, was born May 9, 1864; passed away peacefully at his home near St. Jacobs, Ont., Feb. 7, 1944; aged 79 y. 8 m. 29 d. On Feb. 5, 1888, he was united in marriage to Mary Schmitt, with whom he shared life for 55 years. This union was blessed with 2 sons, Abner and Jacob, both of St. Jacobs. He is survived by his wife, 2 sons, 9 grandchildren, 2 brothers, and one sister. He accepted Christ at an early age, and joined the Mennonite Church to which he remained faithful until death. He was always interested in the welfare of the church and served as trustee for 17 years. He was a kind and loving companion and father, a tender friend to all, and will he greatly missed. Funeral services were held at the St. Jacobs Mennonite Church on Feb. 10, in charge of Bro. Roy S. Koch. Interment was made in the Conestoga cemetery.

      Calm and peaceful he is sleeping.
      Sweetest rest that follows pain;
      We who loved him, sadly miss him.
      But trust that we may meet again
      .
