Malinda (Cross) Burkholder aged 78 years, 5 months, 2 days, died Sunday afternoon, April 3, at her home near Garrett, after a long illness of a complication of diseases. Mrs. Burkholder was born Nov. 1, 1859. She was a daughter of Neil and Mary (Kretchman) Cross and was united with the Center Lutheran Church June 11, 1876 of which church she was a faithful member until her death. She had selected her text hymns and pall-bearers for her funeral rites before her death. She was united in marriage Nov 2, 1879 to Cornelius Burkholder. To this union the following children were born: Carrie, at home; Noah, Garrett; Milton, Somerset; John, Garrett; Mrs. Della O'Hara, Braddock, PA; William P. Burkholder, Garrett. She is survived by ten grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. Her husband preceded her to the grave eleven years ago. Three children, Mary, Lizzie and Ada, also preceded her to the grave. Funeral services were conducted Wednesday at 2 p.m. at her home, by her pastor Rev. C. I. Rowe, who spoke feelingly of the sterling virtues of Mrs. Burkholder, as a mother, a friend, a church worker and a neighbor. W. C. Price & Son, Meyersdale morticians, had charge of the burial. Interment was in the Burkholder Cemetery on the Old Burkholder farm.
