Shantz, -- Henry Cyrenius, son of Henry and Magdalena (Bauman) Shantz, was born in Marysborough Twp., Ont., on June 4, 1879; passed away March 4, 1955, in the Lanigan Hospital near his home at Guernsey, Sask; aged 75 y. 9 m. On June 5, 1906, he was married to Angeline Snider, who preceded him in death on Jan. 22, 1952, at the identical age of his passing. To this union were born 5 sons and 2 daughters (Wesley, Arthur, Lincoln, Olive-Mrs. Clair Biehn, Eileen-Mrs. Harold Biehn, all of Guernsey; Leonard of Elmira, Ont., and Daniel, who died in infancy). One sister (Mrs. Henry Brubaker), one half sister (Mrs. Seranus Martin), and four half brothers (Ozias, Amos, Eli, and Nelson Gingerich), all living near Kitchener, Ont. Two half sisters and one half brother preceded him in death. There are 29 grandchildren, of which 4 are in Ontario and the rest at Guernsey. As a young man he went to Alberta, living at Mayton, Alta., on a homestead and following his marriage he mad his home near Aldersyde, Ala., until 1929 when the family moved to Guernsey. We praise God for the manifestation of His grace in the life of our brother. Funeral services were held March 8, conducted by Stanley Shantz, assisted by Arnold Shantz.
