Birth: Oct. 12, 1865
Death: May 23, 1927

Mellinger.--Mary, daughter of the late Henry Funk and Anna Kreider Andrews and wife of Ezra H. Mellinger, was born near Strasburg, Pa., Oct. 12, 1865; died at her home at Paradise, Pa., May 23, 1927; aged 61 y. 7 m. 11 d. She is survived by her husband and the following children: Anna E., and Clarence; also two small grandchildren. Three others who shared in the home also mourn a mothers loss. In early life Sister Mellinger united with the Mennonite Church at Strasburg, Pa., and she has all her life been active in the service of the Church, for many years she had charge of the infant department of Paradise Sunday school. In September, 1895, she helped organize the Paradise sewing circle, the first in the Lancaster conference district. After a few years other congregations also began to share in the work and in September 1911, the sewing circles were organized and known as, The Associated Sewing Circles of the Lancaster Conference District. Sister Mellinger gave her very life to this work and when she realized that, for her, the work was finished, her wish was that the work should be continued. We feel that her work is unfinished, but it remains for others to enjoy its privileges and bear its burdens. When asked if it was all right that she was so ill she said, "Yes, the Lord's ways are not our ways." A few hours before passing away she suddenly exclaimed, "Oh, it is so beautiful." Brief services were held at the house Wednesday afternoon, May 25, by Bro. J. B. Senger and continued at the Paradise Church by Bros. C. M. Brackbill and Abram Martin. Interment in the Strasburg cemetery.
