In 1924 she with her family united with the Mennonite Church, in which faith she died, leaving a testimony that she was ready to meet her Lord and Savior.

"Mother has gone to heaven,
Relieved of all her pain;
From all earthly cares riven
To live with Jesus again.
Dear mother, you are not forgotten,
Though on earth you are no more;
Still in memory you are with us
As you always were before."
