METZLER.-Bertha M., daughter of Susan and the late Levi H. Brackbill, was born near Gap, Pa., Sept. 15, 1886; died Nov. 7, 1930, in Lancaster General Hospital from the effects of an operation; aged 44 y. 1 m. 22 d. She accepted Christ as her Savior when 16 years of age and united with the Mennonite Church where she remained faithful until death. Dec. 13, 1910, she was married to Christian H. Metzler. This happy union was blessed with four children. She was a faithful and affectionate wife, a kind and devoted mother, always showing a deep concern for the spiritual and temporal welfare of the family. She had been in failing health the past few years but bore it all with a smile. Her desire was to get well and come home to her family, but if it was God's will she was ready to go. God saw fit to call her to Himself. She leaves her grief-stricken husband, 4 children (Susan, Warren, Elsie, and Christian), her mother, two brothers (Benjamin R. and Parke R.), two sisters (Anna, wife of Walter R. Denlinger, and Elsie). Her death came as a shock and a loud call to the family and community. Funeral services were held Nov. 11 at the home and at Hersheys Mennonite Church by Bros. C. M. Brackbill, Abram Martin, and Jacob Mellinger. Interment in adjoining cemetery.
"Sister, thou art sweetly resting,
On the Savior's loving breast;
There by His love o'ershaded,
Sweetly thy soul shall rest."
