Her death was caused by being severely burned with gasoline, which caught fire while getting a lamp ready, Feb. 13, from which she suffered till death came to relieve her. She united with the Mennonite Church in her youth and was true to God and the Church until she was called from time to eternity. She met with many trials and difficulties in life. In all these she performed her duties as a faithful wife and Christian mother. Funeral services at the house by C. K. Ernest (I Cor. 15) and at the church by P. O. Oswald and Geo. Miller. Texts, Rev. 14:13; II Tim. 4:6-8. Interment in the adjoining cemetery.

"Sister, thou hast left us lonely,
Sorrow fills our hearts today;
But beyond this world of sorrow
Tears will all be wiped away." By a sister.

Katie was my Great Aunt
