The following year she moved to Canada and lived with her parents until they were called home. She then made her home with her brother Roy, on the old homestead, until the messenger of death called her to the great beyond very unexpectedly. She retired in good health as usual and the next morning when her brother went to her room to see why she did not get up he was just in time to see her pass away.

Zehr of Perth Co., Ont.), 10 grandchildren (2 preceded her in death), 6 great-grandchildren, 4 brothers, 1 sister, and a great many friends. Services were held at the home conducted by Jacob R. Bender and at the church by Daniel Jutzi and Manasseh Hallman. Texts, II Pet. 1:4, Jno. 17:24. Interment in the East Zorra A. M. Cemetery.
