Brubaker. --- Elizabeth, daughter of the late Henry and Barbara (Gingerich) Lauver, was born Aug. 3, 1867; died at her home Sept. 2, 1950; aged 83 y. 29 d. She was united in marriage to John H.Brubaker Sept. 3, 1895. To this union were born 3 sons and 5 daughters. One son, 2 daughters, 2 brothers, and 3 sisters predeceased her. Surviving are her husband, 2 sons (George, Christiana, Pa.; and Marlin, Duchess, Alta.), 3 daughters (Phoebe, Carrie-Mrs. Daniel Burkholder and Edna, all of Duchess, Alta.), 5 brothers (Jacob, Mt. Pleasant Mills, Pa.; Henry, Lititz, Pa.; Foster, Ephrata, Pa.; Milton, Mt. Pleasant Mills, Pa.; and William, Duchess, Alta.), 13 grandchildren, and 2 great-grandchildren. She moved with her husband and family from Mechanicsburg, Pa., to Duchess, Alta., in March, 1916. She was one of the oldest remaining settlers of the Eastern Irrigation district, being one of the pioneers who settled under the Canadian Pacific Railway immigration. She united with the Susquehanna Mennonite Church near Richfield, Pa., about 1896, later transferring her membership to Slate Hill, Pa., and then to Duchess, Alta., where she was one of the charter members of the Duchess Mennonite Church. Although not confined to her bed, she was becoming feeble and passed away in her own home. She was kindly and carefully cared for by her daughters and son-in-law. She always manifested a helpful and Christian spirit which endeared her to the hearts of all who knew her. Funeral services were held at the Duchess Mennonite Church, with M.D. Stutzman, of Kingman, Alta., in charge. Interment was made in the Duchess Cemetery.
