Isa Dora Humbert Burkholder

Burkholder.-Isa Dora, wife of Dr. John D. Burkholder of Harrisonburg, Va., was born Nov. 10, 1878; died of cancer July 14, 1935; aged 56 y. 8 m. 4 d. She was the only daughter of John C. and Catharine Humbert. She united early with the Church and lived consistently and faithfully a commendable Christian life. Hers was a sweet and gentle personality, beloved by all who knew her. One of her favorite mottoes was, ''In quietness there is strength." While never very robust in body, her pure and devout life imparted to her strength. Upon visiting her shortly before she died a friend remarked, ''Such a visit is like a drink of water in a thirsty land." During her illness she was resigned to the will of the Lord, looking for the blessed and "the glorious appearing of the great God and our Savior Jesus Christ." After bidding "Goodnight" to the members of the family she asked to be lifted up, and shortly expired quietly in the arms of her son. "Her sweet spirit had gone to be with the Lord." She is survived by her husband and four children: Mrs. Paul Bender, Goshen, Ind.; Mrs. Newton Weber, Fort Wayne, Ind.; Mrs. Harry Brunk, and John Jr., Harrisonburg, Va. After brief services at the home in charge of Bro. Henry B. Keener, the funeral sermon was preached at the Weaver Church by Bro. J. L. Stauffer. Burial in the adjoining cemetery.
