Birth: Jun. 30, 1899
Elkhart County
Indiana, USA
Death: Feb., 1933

Bechtel - Bertha Mae, daughter of Jacob and Leah (Lehman) Bechtel, was born June 30, 1899, near Nappanee, Ind; died at the home of her parents Feb, 24, 1933; aged 33 y, 7 m, 24 d. Death was caused by a complication of diseases. Although she suffered intensely during the last days of her life she expressed her desire to go home and be at rest.

She is survived by her parents, 2 brothers (Wm Henry Bechtel of Goshen, Ind, and Warren Bechtel of Nappanee, Ind), 5 nieces, 2 nephews, and many other relatives and friends.

At the age of 12 years she united with the Mennonite Church at Yellow Creek. She was deeply concerned for the salvation of the lost and prayed especially for each one that united with the Church since she was converted, also for all the saints.

"Not now, but in the coming years
It may be in the better land,
We'll read the meaning of our tears
And there, sometime, we'll understand."

Funeral services were held at the Yellow Creek Frame Mennonite Church conducted by Bro Benj Good of Orrville, Ohio, assisted by Bros Wm. Ramer and Paul Hoover.
