About Rachel R. Hooley Hershberger (Yoder)

Birth: Oct. 10, 1834 Mifflin County Pennsylvania, USA Death: Mar. 21, 1892 Middlebury (Elkhart County) Elkhart County Indiana, USA

HERSHBERGER. - On the 21st of March 1892 near Middlebury, Elkhart Co., Ind., of inflammation of the stomach and bowels, Rachel Hershberger, maiden name Yoder, aged 57 years, 5 months and 11 days. She was born in Mifflin Co., Pa., moved with her parents to Juniata Co., at which place she united with the Amish Mennonite church and remained faithful until death called her away. In the fall of 1854 she was married to Joseph Hooley in Mahoning Co., Ohio. To this union were born 7 children. In 1863 they moved to St. Joseph Co., Mich., where her husband died. In 1875 she was again married to Abraham Hershberger. To this union were born 2 children. She leaves a sorrowing companion, seven children, nineteen grand-children, seven sisters and three brothers to mourn her departure, but not as those who have no hope, as she seemed to be fully resigned to the will of God and was willing to depart this life. Buried on the 24th in the presence of many friends and neighbors who had gathered to pay their last respects. Services by D. J. Johns from Psa. 38:1.

"Dearest mother, thou hast left us, And our loss we deeply feel; But 'tis God that hath bereft, He can all our sorrows heal."

~ Herald Of Truth Vol. XXIX, No. 9, May 1, 1892, pp. 141-143.
