Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Oct. 9, 1857
Death: Dec. 8, 1916

Burkholder. - Sister Lizzie E. (Longenecker), wife of Pre. Abram Burkholder was born Oct. 9, 1857, in Lancaster Co., Pa,; died at her home near Newville, Pa. Dec. 8, 1916, of a stroke; aged 59 y. 1 m. 29 d. She leaves to mourn her departure a grief-stricken husband, 6 step-children, 6 brothers, 3 sisters. One sister preceded her in death.
She was married Jan. 7, 1904, and was a good help to her companion in his work for the Lord, but we believe our loss is her eternal gain. She was failing in health for over a year, but death was very unexpected at this time, as we had gained hopes of her recovery. During the last year she had expressed herself as being willing to go if the Lord saw fit. Funeral was held Dec. 11 at the Diller Church. Services conducted by the brethren, W. W. Hege and Walter Charlton. Text, II Tim. 4:6-8. Interment in the cemetery adjoining the church.
