Bender. - Daniel C. Bender, oldest son of Christian R. and Elizabeth Bender, was born in Washington Co., Ia., Jan. 26, 1901; died at his home near Kalona, Ia., March 9, 1929; aged 28 y. 1 m. 13 d. At about the age of eighteen he accepted Christ and united with the Amish Mennonite Church in which faith he lived and died. On Dec. 31, 1925, he was united in marriage to Margaret Hansen, who preceded him in death, May 10, 1926. On Sept. 3, 1927, he was united in marriage to Maude Swartzendruber. They together trod life's pathway for the short period of eighteen months. About a year ago he became somewhat afflicted with leakage of the heart, but until the last week his condition was not thought serious. Since then health gradually failed and he suddenly passed away which was a great shock to the community. He leaves to mourn his departure his deeply bereaved wife, one son, Harold Roy, aged six months, father, mother, 1 brother, and 4 sisters (Barbara, wife of Simon Hershberger; Edwin, Fanny, Ellen, and Nettie of near Wellman, Ia.), also 2 half-sisters (Mary, wife of Elmer G. Swartzendruber of Wellman, Ia., and Lydia, wife of Simon Miller of Grantsville, Md.), and an aged grandmother, besides many other relatives and friends. Funeral services were held at the Lower Deer Creek church March 12, 1929, by J. L. Hershberger and John Y. Swartzendruber. Text, Prov. 27:1.
"You'll be missed and oh, how sadly,
No one here on earth can tell,
But it was the Master's bidding,
He who doeth all things well."
Gospel Herald - Volume XXI, Number 52 - March 28, 1929
