  • Notes 
    • Hershey.-Mary Emma Eby Hershey was born near Intercourse, Pa., July 3, 1861; died at the home of her son, Paul, Feb. 13, 1944; aged 82 y. 7 m. 10 d. On Nov. 24, 1880, she was married to Jacob Mellinger Hershey and lived in Buyerstown until the spring of 1892 when she moved with her husband and family to Palmyra, Mo., and later to La Junta, Colo. in 1908, where she had lived since. Her husband passed away Dec. 26, 1923, and since then she has made her home with her son, Paul, except for a few short intervals when she lived with some of her other children. Nine children were born to her, of whom 6 survive: Elmer Jacob, Gulfport, Miss.; Charles Owen, Chicago, Ill.; Mrs. Eva May Evers, La Junta; Paul John, La Junta; Mrs. Martha Anna Kauffman, La Junta; Isaac Eby, Gulfport, Miss. The oldest child, Mrs. Emma Elizabeth Shank, died in Argentina, S.A., Dec. 28, 1939. Mary Esther died in infancy, and Park Eby died Aug. 23, 1918, at the age of 16. She is also survived by 20 grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, and a sister, Mrs. Elizabeth Kling, York, Pa. She with her husband united with the Mennonite Church at Palmyra, Mo., in 1893, and has always been a faithful member of the church of her choice. Her devotion to her family and cheerful patient disposition always endeared her to all who came in contact with her. For several years she has been practically an invalid and for quite a while had been a complete invalid, yet never was a complaint uttered. She would inconvenience herself to make as little trouble as possible. Her frail body is dead, but Mother still lives and it can be truthfully said of her that death is swallowed up in victory. Funeral services were held at East Holbrook Mennonite Church with Bro.E. E. Showalter preaching from Ps. 116:16 and the latter part of Num. 23:10. Interment was in the Fairview Cemetery at La Junta.
