      Stauffer - Mary, daughter of Jacob and Magdalena Shiry-Betzner, was born Aug. 4, 1843; died June 23, 1924; aged 80 y. 10 m. 19 d. On May 23, 1865, she was married to Benjamin Stauffer. To them were born 5 sons and 3 daughters, 6 of whom survive: Norman, Isaac, Fred, Mrs. Noah Weber, Mrs. Jonah Baer, and Mrs. A. L. Shantz. Beside the children there remain to mourn 21 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, 5 brothers (John, Isaac, Samuel, Moses, Aaron) and 3 sisters (Mrs. Noah Stauffer, Mrs. Aaron Cressman, and Mrs. Ephraim Cressman). Sister Stauffer made her peace with God early in life, joined the church of her choice, and remained a faithful, consistent member until God called her home. Funeral services were held June 25 from the home of her daughter, Mrs. Noah Weber, Waterloo, to the Kitchener Mennonite Church for service and burial in adjoining cemetery. Services conducted by Brethren Noah Hunsberger, Jonas Snider, and Oscar Burkholder.
