HOLDERMAN.-On the 16th of Aug., 1905, near Jamestown, Elkhart Co., Ind., of blood poisoning, of which she suffered very severely for about five weeks, Sister Anna Seese, widow of the late John Holderman; aged 90 Y., 1 M., 16 D. She was born in Holmes Co., Ohio, June 30, 1815, and in 1837 united in marriage with John Holderman, who died eighteen years ago. She leaves five sons, two daughters and fifty-one grandchildren to mourn her death. She was a woman of extraordinary physical and mental endurance. She came to Elkhart County when the country was really a wilderness, and with her husband she shared the toils and hardship of pioneer life. She did a great deal of hard out-door work that is usually done by men, raised a large family and took care of her household duties as well, and reached the extreme age of 90 years with a mind and memory that would have done credit to one of much younger years. She was a good mother, a devoted wife, a kind and helpful neighbor, and possessing a kind and cheerful disposition she was beloved and respected by all who knew her. She was buried at the Olive Mennonite M. H. on the 18th, where appropriate services were conducted by John F. Funk from the text, 2 Cor. 4:17, 18 and 5:1. The funeral was largely attended. She was a faithful member of the Mennonite church for many years and the bereaved ones need not mourn as those who have no hope, feeling assured that their loss is her eternal gain.
