Birth: Feb. 25, 1882
Death: May 15, 1945

Gospel Herald - Vol. XXXVIII, No . 11 - June 15, 1945--page 107
Bender.--Barbara, daughter of Nicholas and Veronica (Gascho) Wagler, was born in Wilmot, Waterloo Co., Ont., Feb. 24, 1883*; passed away at Stratford General Hospital, May 15, 1945; aged 63 y. 2 m. 20 d. In early youth she accepted Christ as her Saviour and was received into the Wilmot A.M. Church by her grandfather, Bishop John Gascho. On Oct. 6, 1904, she was joined in holy matrimony to David R. Bender of the East Zorra congregation. She transferred her membership to the East Zorra Church and remained a faithful and consistent member until called to her reward. She leaves her bereaved companion, 2 sons (William and Lorne, both of Wilmot Twp.), 2 daughters (Fannie--Mrs. David Lichti, on the homestead; and Mary Ann, at home), ten grandchildren, one brother (Pre. Menno Wagler, Baden, Ont.), and 2 sisters (Susanna Gingerich, of Baden; and Rebecca--Mrs. John Bender, of Wilmot). One daughter (Alma) and four grandchildren predeceased her. Funeral services were held at the home by Dan Wagler and at the East Zorra A. M. Church by Nelson Litwiller and Daniel Jutzi. Interment was made in the adjoining cemetery.

* Barbara's gravestone indicates she was born in 1882. If she was born Feb 24, 1882, that would be nearly consistant (within 1 day) with her accumulated age of 63y, 2m and 20d's as stated in the above obituary. Her birth record gives her birthdate as Feb 25, 1882.
