MARY H. C. HERSHEY
Hershey.- Mary H. C. Hershey, wife of Henry Hershey, Intercourse, Pa., was born in Lancaster Co., Pa., July 15; 1853; died at her home after a week's illness of cerebral hemorrhage Mar. 9, 1928; aged ** 74 y. 7 m. 25 d.
She was a member of the Mennonite Church and a daughter of the late David B. Weaver. Sister Hershey resided in Virginia a number of years, returning to Pennsylvania about 8 years ago.
Besides her husband she is survived by a son, Elmer W. Coiner, and a daughter, Mrs. Elizabeth Cohron, of Stuarts Draft, Va., two step-children, Mrs. Isaac Good and Lloyd Hershey, of Intercourse, and a half-brother, David E. Weaver, Waynesboro, Va.
Sister Hershey suffered from ill health for almost 6 years but was always cheerful and patient during her afflictions. Her pleasant and unassuming manner won for her many friends.
We believe she was ready for the grim reaper for she had selected for her funeral text the fourteenth chapter of John. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon, March 12*, in charge of Bro. Jacob Mellinger at the home, and Bros. Christian Brackbill and Abram Martin at Hershey's Church. The body was then taken by train to Waynesboro, Va., where services were continued on Monday, March 12*, at the Bethlehem Lutheran Church by Anthony Heatwole and E.C. Shenk, after which the body was laid to rest in the adjoining cemetery.
We shall be parted for a while
But we'll not forget her loving smile,
And some sweet day when life is o'er,
We'll greet her on the other shore."
