Barr - Ida Louisa, wife of Ellis G. Barr, died at her home, East Lampeter, Pa., Dec. 9, 1931; aged 54 years. She was the daughter of Elias and Sara Daily Andrews of Willow Street, Pa. Her mother preceded her in death 16 years ago. She is survived by the following children: Martin, Grace (wife of George Dinsleberger), Wayne, Jay, and Blanche; also 5 grandchildren and the following brothers and sisters: Martha, Samuel, Roy, Lizzie, David, Clayton and Annie (wife of Oscar Herman). Her father also survives. Ida affiliated with the Mennonite church in which her faith and the welfare of her soul she was deeply concerned. Her desire was to unite with the body of believers but through the most sacred vow of earlier days she was not received. But she kept the faith and believed in His Word and all was done for her that helping hands could do. We leave it to God of all who judges all. He doeth all things well. She was in failing health for a number of years. The last few years of her life were spent on a chair, helpless. All through her affliction she never complained. Through the absence of mind and regardless of speech, she could not hold a conversation with the exception of a few words but greeted you with a smile, which ofttimes means more than words. Members of the Brick Congregation would visit her and sing for her. We praise the Lord for their kindness towards her. On Dec. 9 very unexpectedly, the death angel ministered unto her and released her from her suffering and called her hence.
"The cares and toils of this life had come, and burdens on me roll;
But the Lord lifted me to a higher life, where naught can harm my soul."
Funeral services were held at the house by Bro. Frank Herr and at Longeneckers Church by Bro. Jacob Kreider. Body laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery.
