|Birth: ||Mar. 13, 1863|
|Death: ||Jan. 5, 1944|
Ropp.-Barbara (Albrecht) Ropp was born in Wellesley, Ont., March 13, 1863; passed away in her home in Detroit, Mich., Jan. 5, 1944; aged 80 y. 9 m. 22 d. On Feb. 5, 1885, she was united in marriage to Joseph Ropp of Wellesley, Ont. To this union were born 10 children of which 3 sons (David, Mose, and Edwin) preceded her in death. Those remaining to mourn her departure are: Dan, Owendale, Mich.; Anna Dean, Dearborn, Mich.; Lead Ackerman, Elkton, Mich.; Adeline Kennel, Petersburg, Ont.; Emanuel, Bad Axe, Mich.; William, Detroit, Mich.; Ervin, Dearborn, Mich.; also her husband, as well as 17 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, 2 brothers, 3 sisters, and many friends. Grandma united with the Mennonite Church at the age of 16 and was a faithful mem-ber until death. She and her aged husband lived together for many years, having celebrated their golden anniversary almost 9 years ago. Her sudden death, which came with but little warning perhaps will exaggerate the loneliness which her husband will experience, but as Christians we can always be comforted with the presence of the Lord. In Christ we have the promise and the hope of being at home in joy and peace. Funeral services were held at the home by Pre. Frank Raber and at the Pigeon River Church by Bros. Edwin Albrecht and Emanuel Swartzendruber. Interment in the adjoining cemetery.
