Death Announcement - The Herald of Truth, November 15, 1899
On the morning of October 3d, 1899, near Kossuth, Ont., of consumption, at the home of her parents, Sister Annie Knorr, daughter of Andrew and Rachel Binder, and widow of the late Jacob Knorr, who preceded her to the spirit world, he being preceded by their only child. Thus the entire young family has gone to try the realities of the beyond. She was aged 24 years, 5 months and 23 days. Buried on the 5th of Oct. in the David Eby cemetery [now Erb Street Mennonite Church Cemetery], near Waterloo. Funeral services by Jacob Woolner, Sr. at the house and at the meeting house by Noah Stauffer in German from Isaiah 57: 2, and by J. S. Woolner in English from Phil. 1: 21. She leaves parents and five sisters besides other relatives and friends to mourn her early departure, yet they need not mourn as those that have no hope. She went home rejoicing in a crucified Redeemer. She remained conscious to the end. Nearly an hour before her departure she said, "Good-bye all, now I am going home." What a consolation for us when we stand by the dying and see that they have a strong arm to lean upon through the valley of death. May God comfort the bereaved ones in their sore affliction and may they look forward to the time of their departure that when life's work is ended they with us and we with them may lay our armor by and meet our loved ones who have gone before.
