Bender John M., son of David and Lydia (Miller) Bender, was born near New Hamburg, Canada, July 27, 1860; departed this life at the Lincoln (Nebr.) General Hospital, Dec. 18, 1945; aged 85 y. 4 m. 20 d. In 1884 he was married to Barbara E. Miller, who preceded him in death April 12, 1934. Surviving are 4 children (Mrs. M. R. Bender, Lincoln.

As a little girl, Mrs. Ralph Schweitzer was taken into this home and lived with them until her marriage. He was preceded in death by his wife, 2 daughters (Mrs. Ezra Schweitzer and Mrs. William Springer), and 3 sisters (Mrs. Joseph R. Stauffer, Mrs. John Maurer, and Mrs. N. E. Roth). In youth he accepted Christ as his Saviour and united with the Mennonite Church near Milford. On Aug. 25 he fell and broke his hip and on Sept. 1 was taken to the hospital, where every thing was done to ease his pain. The last few weeks of his life he longed to be taken home to his Saviour. Funeral services were conducted at the Milford A. M. Church, Dec. 21, in charge of L. O. Schlegel. Text, Eccl. 12:1-7. Interment was made in the Milford A. M. Cemetery.
