Cender. - Joseph J. Cender was born near Roanoke, Ill., July 20, 1874; died at the Brokaw hospital in Bloomington, Ill., Aug. 8, 1928; aged 54 y. 19 d. On March 18, 1906, he was married to Elsie Kauffman formerly of Goshen, Ind. To this union two sons (Raymond and Homer), and one daughter (Marie) were born. A home was given to an adopted son (Elvin Cender) now in the Panama Canal Zone. Bro. Cender was confined to his bed only 10 days but had been ailing for some time from complications developing from kidney trouble. On Aug. 6 he was taken to the Brokaw hospital for further examination. All the help that human hands could give was given but to no avail. He peacefully passes away on the morning of Aug. 8, almost unnoticed. He was a kind and loving father and is sadly missed by the family. He leaves to mourn his departure a sorrowing wife, 3 children, 2 brothers (Chris and John of Foosland, Ill.), 2 sisters (Mrs. Lena Birkey and Mrs. Heiser also of Foosland), besides a host of other relatives and friends. He united with the Mennonite Church in his youth and remained faithful until death. Funeral services were conducted at the home by Bros. A. H. Leaman of Chicago, and at the East Bend Mennonite Church byBros. J. A. Heiser and A. H. Leaman. Text, John 14:6. Interment in the cemetery near by.
"Father, thou art sweetly resting,
Here thy toils and cares are o,er,
But again we hope to meet thee,
On that bright and peaceful shore."
