Schloneger. --- Reuben, son of the late David and Nancy Zook Schloneger, was born in Stark Co., Ohio, Aug. 1, 1886; died in the Mountville Hospital near Lancaster, Pa., Feb. 6, 1945; aged 58 y. 6 m. 5 d. In his youth he accepted Christ and united with the Beech Mennonite Church. When he moved to Delaware he united with the Conservative Amish Mennonite Church, in which fellowship he continued until the end. In 1908 he was united in marriage to Mary Ann Lantz. To this union was born one daughter, Alta. In 1909 his companion passed away. The following year he was married to Matilda Snyder. To this union five children were born: Ray, Naomi, Ida, Esther, and Jesse. His second companion died in 1921. In 1923 he was married to Mabel Amstutz. Six children were born to this union: Nathan, Ward, Orie, Anna Velma, and Vera and Vida (twins). He spent his life in various parts of the country, living in Michigan, Ohio, Oregon, Delaware, and Pennsylvania. Recently he and his family moved to Mountville, Pa. There he contracted pneumonia from which he seemed to be recovering, but complications set in which caused his death. He is survived by his companion, 4 sons (Ray, Breckenridge, Mich.; Jesse and Nathan, U.S. Navy; and Ward, at home), 6 daughters (Mrs. Ray Stutzman, Archbold, Ohio; Mrs. Nelson Kelly, Grand Rapids, Mich.; Ida, in England; Mrs. Donald Shaffer, Riverdale, Mich.; and Vera and Vida, at home), 11 grandchildren, 3 brothers (Norman, Archbold, Ohio; and David and Melvin, Louisville, Ohio), 2 sisters (Mrs. Eldora Sommer, Louisville, Ohio, and Mrs. LeRoy Rine, Canton, Ohio) and many other relatives and friends. Besides his parents and two companions, he was preceded in death by one son, one daughter, one granddaughter, one brother, and one sister. A short service was held at the home in Mountville by John K. Charles. The body was then taken to Louisville, Ohio, where services were held in the Beech Mennonite Church, in charge of O. N. Johns, assisted by John D. Miller. Text, I Sam. 20:3. Interment was made in the church cemetery.
