      Mrs. Elisabeth Rings Krebill, daughter of Christian and Elisabeth Ellenberger, was born on April 6, 1860, in Lee County, Iowa. On the
      confession of her faith she was baptized and received by Elder Christian Schowalter as a member of the Zions Mennonite congregation, whose faithful member she ever remained. On August 30, 1883, she was joined in marriage with F. H. Krebill, who was father of 3 children: Albert D., Edwin J., and Klara. Klara preceded her in death. They made their home on a farm northwest of Donnellson, where they lived until 1916, when they returned to Donnellson. She passed away March 19th, 1941, at the age of 80 years, 11
      months, and 13 days.

      This marriage was blessed with seven children: Mrs. Lottie Loewenberg, Otto C. Krebill, Emma L. Krebill of Donnellson; Mrs Lizzie M. Neff, Mt. Pleasant, Iowa; Elmer H., Billings, Montana; William F., Davenport, Iowa. A son, Milton, died in early childhood. Also surrounding her in mourning are 27 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. In 1928, her husband died; her sister Mrs. Theodore Hirschler also preceded her in death in 1908. Sister Krebill was an active member in the church; so also in the mission society, where she was many years president. Her faithful Christian life and acts are an inspiration for us to follow as we work and strive for heaven. She was actively doing so long as her health permitted. Her daughter Emma was always with her, and lovinging and faithfully took care of her to the end.

      The funeral was held at home and at the Zions Mennonite Church Friday afternoon, March 21st, led by Elder Adolf Friesen. A mixed quartet sang the songs "Abide with Me" at the home, and "He Leadeth Me" and "Father Suffered Me Day by Day" at the church. She was interred in the Zion Mennonite Cemetery.
