On the 25th of Oct., 1900, near Bosslers M. H., Lancaster Co., Pa., Mary, wife of Tillman Garber, aged 23 years, 8 months, 6 days. She had been sick about two weeks but so far recovered that all thought she would soon be well again. She however had a relapse and in a few days passed away. She suffered much, but bore it patiently, and said she was willing to die if it was God's will. Both she and her husband had decided to begin the Christian life and unite with the church, but on account of her sickness she had not been baptized, yet we trust that her heart was given to the Lord and that she found in Him a merciful and all sufficient Saviour.

The funeral was largely attended, so that in addition to the meeting house the school house was opened and services conducted there by John Wolgemuth and Ephraim Nissley, from Isa. 38:1, (last clause). At the meetinghouse, services were conducted Martin Rutt, Jacob N. Brubacher and John Landis, from Rom. 6:23. She leaves a husband and infant child, and many friends to mourn her death. The remains were laid to rest in Bosslers grave yard on Oct. 28th. Asleep in Jesus, blessed sleep, etc.
