Bender, -- Alma, daughter of David R. and Barbara (Wagler) Bender, was born in East Zorra Twp., Oxford Co., Ont., Sept. 19, 1905; passed away Feb. 28, 1945, at the home of her parents in Wilmot Twp., after a lingering illness of fourteen years with diabetes and later Bright's disease with complications; aged 38 y. 5m. 9 d. The last two and one-half months her eyesight failed and she longed to go to the land of light, where there shall be no night. In early life she accepted Christ as her Saviour and was received into the fellowship of the East Zorra A. M. congregation, remaining a devoted and faithful member until death. Funeral services were held March 3, at the home by Daniel Wagler (II Cor. 5: 1-10) and Jacob R. Bender (Ps. 116: 15) and at the East Zorra Church by Daniel Wagler, Daniel Jutzi, and Jacob R. Bender. Interment was made in the adjoining cemetery.
