  • Notes 
    • Brubacher.--Abner, oldest son of Menno M. and Almeta (Good) Brubacher, was born April 13, 1903, near Heidelberg, Ont. Dec. 8, 1926, he was married to Arminta, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Zenas Snyder near New Hamburg, Ont., where he farmed the rest of his life. Dec. 7, he had one finger injured while sawing wood. The wound was dressed and seemed to get well; but one week later it was found necessary to amputate it. After this his other arm became badly swollen, and things looked serious; but on Wednesday, the 23rd, it improved giving us much hope. The following night he had a heart attack and passed away; aged 39 y. 8 m. 11 d. He was converted in his early teens and lived a consistent Christian life. He was of a cheerful disposition, a dutiful son, a faithful husband, a loving father, a helpful neighbor, and will be greatly missed in the home, in the community, and in the Church. He leaves his sorrowing wife, 3 sons and 4 daughters (Vernon, Dorothy, Mary, Marjorie, Lewis, Lloyd, and Eva Mae). Two daughters (Agnes and Eileen) preceded him. He also leaves his parents, 2 brothers and 3 sisters (Mrs. Enoch Martin, St. Jacobs; Mrs. Abner Cressman, New Hamburg; Ada, Walter, and Curtis, St. Jacobs), besides many relatives and friends. We are assured that our great loss is his eternal gain. Funeral services at the Biehn Mennonite Church were conducted by Bros. Curtis Cressman and Moses Roth. Interment in adjoining cemetery.
