Gerber.-Fanny Gerber (nee Speicher) was born in Holmes Co., Ohio, Nov. 30, 1859; died Feb. 12, 1939; aged 79 y. 2 m. 13 d. Nov. 3, 1881, she was married to Henry E. Kropf. Two sons and 4 daughters were born to this union. Two daughters died in infancy and the father died Dec. 24, 1891, leaving the mother with 5 fatherless children. On Dec. 24, 1903, she was married to John T. Miller of Millersburg, Ohio, who died in February 1916. She was married to Silas Gerber of Amboy, Ind., Sept. 6, 1917, who remains to mourn the loss of a devoted companion, sharing the loss he has the sympathy of the surviving children: Amanda, married to Elmer Plank, Constantine, Mich.; Noah D. Kropf, Kalona, Iowa; Elizabeth, married to Martin L. Miller, Amboy, Ind.; Elmer J. Kropf, Columbus, Ohio; also 10 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, 1 brother (Noah Speicher, Shipshewana, Ind.), 2 stepdaughters, and many other friends and relatives. We mourn not as those who have no hope. Mother accepted her Savior in her youth, worshiped Him in the Mennonite Church as long as her health permitted, and many times expressed herself ready for the summons to come up higher. Funeral services at the Howard Miami Co., Church; sermon by Claude C. Culp, assisted by the local ministry. Text, Job 14:14. ~The Gospel Herald March 9, 1939 - Vol. XXXI, No.49 - pages 1062-1064
