  • Notes 
    • Habel, Lorne, son of the late Conrad and Maggie (Shantz) Habel, was born at Wilmot Center, Ont., 53 years ago; died at his home in New Hamburg on Feb. 9, 1956, after a long illness. Several months before his death he realized his need of cleansing from sin and accepted Christ as his Saviour. He was instructed in the Word, baptized, and received into fellowship of the Mennonite Church. During those last weeks of his life he testified of the great grace of God and gave evidence of a transformed life. Surviving are his wife, the former Fanny Gooding, 2 sons, Kenneth and Earl, one daughter, Helen, all of New Hamburg; 3 brothers, Clinton, Kitchener, Ont.; Harry, Buffalo, N. Y.; and Roy, Plattsville; one sister, Mrs. Wallace Thibideau, Ayr, Ont., and 2 grandchildren. Funeral services held on Feb. 13 at Geiger Mennonite church were in charge of Moses H. Roth, assisted by C. C. Cressman. Interment was made in the adjoining cemetery.
