    • The following is from - Gospel Witness - Volume 2, Number 14 - July 4, 1906 - pages 223, 224.

      "EBY - Ellen E., daughter of Ephraim N. and Amelia Eby, was born March 18, 1882, peacefully fell asleep at her home in Lancaster Co., Pa., on June 16, 1906; aged 24y., 3m. Her ailment was heart trouble and paralysis of which she suffered very patiently for ten weeks, always answering, "Whether life or death, I am satisfied." Two years prior to her death, she united with the Mennonite church. She was a faithful member, ever active in His service, until the Lord saw fit to relieve her of her sufferings and call her to Himself. O, that those left to mourn her departure may pattern after her example, always looking on the bright side of life, trusting in the Lord. Funeral services were conducted at the Hess Meeting House by the brethren, John Bucher, Jacob N. Brubacher and Jacob Hershey, from the text selected by her during her sickness, "Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff, they comfort me" (Psa. 23:4).

      "Death shall not destroy my comfort.
      Christ shall guide me through the gloom;
      Down he'll send some angel convoy
      To convey my spirit home.

      Now with angels I am marching,
      With bright glory on my brow.
      Who will share my blissful portion,
      Who will love my Savior now?" "
