"On the 23d of Jan., 1906, near Bowmansville, Pa., of the infirmities
of old age, Lavina, wife of John H. Good; aged 80 Y., 4 M., 28 D. She
was a faithful member of the Mennonite church for many years, and
ministered faithfully to the needs of her loved ones in the home until
five years before her death, when her mental powers failed, and in
that condition she remained until death brought the change from the
corruptible to the incorruptible, for we believe she met a Savior who
is merciful. She is survived by her husband, now 92 years old, three
daughters and two sons, of whom one is a minister; also a number of
grandchildren and great-grandchildren, to mourn her departure, yet not
without hope. Burial on the 26th in the Bowmansville Mennonite
cemetery. Funeral services in the M. H. adjoining by Henry Good and
Bish. Benj. Weaver. Blessed is the death of the righteous. Peace to
her ashes. WM. G. GOOD." (4)
