On Apr. 22, 1929, she suffered from a stroke, from which time on she was confined to her bed. Although she was blind and almost helpless she never complained. The last few months she suffered much pain but bore it patiently till the end. She was a member of the Mennonite Church, having accepted Christ in her youth, and remained faithful, having a desire to go and be with those already gone before. Funeral services conducted at the home by Henry Bauman and at Conestoga Riverside Church by Henry Bauman and Jesse Bauman. Texts, II Cor. 4: 17, 18; I Cor. 3: 11-15. Burial in adjoining cemetery.
