  • Notes 
    • Rosenberger, Lydia, daughter of Benjamin Rosenberger and Nancy Shantz, was born June 4, 1860; died Sept. 29, 1940; aged 80 y. 3 m. 25 d. She spent the greater part of her life in and around the community near New Dundee, Ont. In 1891 she accepted the Lord under the preaching of John S. Coffman and united with the Blenheim Mennonite Church, to which faith she remained true till death. The past seven years she was unable to walk, but she bore her affliction patiently. She leaves 2 sisters (Mrs. John Coleman, New Hamburg; Mrs. Jacob L. Witmer, Brown City, Mich.), 5 brothers (Menno and Eli, New Dundee; Ben, New Hamburg; Osia, Balzac, Alta.; Edwin, Balzac, Alta.). Two sisters (Nancy and Sarah) predeceased her. Funeral services were conducted at the home on Oct. 1 by Bro. Moses N. Baer and at the church by Bro. Manasseh Hallman. Text, Acts 16: 14. Interment in adjoining cemetery.

      "Her room is quiet, all is still,
      Her place is vacant, it is God's will;
      So long she waited for her rest,
      Our blessed Lord knows what is best."
