  • Notes 
    • Cressman. - Elmeda Becker was born near Breslau, Ont., Sept. 27, 1881; died at the home of her son (Ray), Preston, Ont., Jan. 1, 1948; aged 66 y. 3 m. 3 d. On June 10, 1908, she was married to John Cressman, who predeceased her on April 28, 1941. Early in life she accepted Christ as her Saviour and united with the Cressman Mennonite Church, Breslau, Ont., of which she remained a member until death. For 30 years she suffered from a weakened body, during which time her testimony for the Lord grew stronger. Surviving are one son (Ray, Preston, Ont.), one daughter (Sylinda - Mrs. Gerald Shea, Kitchener, Ont.), one sister (Mrs. Howard Snyder, Waterloo, Ont.), one brother (Allan, Hespeler, Ont.) and 4 grandchildren. Funeral services were held Jan. 4 at the Cressman Church, in charge of J. C. Williamson and Oscar Burkholder. Text: Phil 1: 23.
