  • Notes 
    • Shantz, Sister Ethleen, wife of Anannias S. Shantz, was born Nov. 15, 1867, near Markham, Ont.; died Oct. 7, 1940, at her home in Kitchener, Ont., after a general illness; aged 72 y. Surviving are her husband, a son (Velores B. Shantz of Eric Beach, Ont.), 3 daughters (Mrs. Edwin Jewitt and Mrs. Earl Snider, both of German Mills; and Mrs. Elmer Gerber of Kitchener), and 14 grandchildren. She was a faithful member of the Church for nearly a half century. She exemplified a real Christian experience. She was an interested Sunday-school worker in her earlier years, and maintained this interest in this and other forms of service until the end. When the pastor gave her communion for the last time, she remarked, "Suppose it won't be long until I'll be going. It doesn't matter. I've been living for years with that day in mind." This accounted for the fact there was no distress, panic or fear, but faith, peace, and trust-a real Christian poise. Services and burial Oct. 10, at the First Mennonite Church, Kitchener, in charge of Bro. C. F. Derstine, assisted by Brethren S. F. Coffman and O. Burkholder. Theme, "Numbering Our Days" (Psa. 90: 10).
