Alice E. STANDERFER, daughter of David and Katherine Deitz, was born April 9, 1864, and departed this life April 5, 1926, at the age of 61 years, 11 months and 26 days. She professed faith in Christ about the year 1881, and united with the Blooming Grove Baptist Church, later moving her membership to the Delafield Baptist Church where she remained a loyal member until death.
She was united in marriage to Samuel C. Standerfer Feb. 1, 1887, and to

several years. She leaves to mourn their loss, one daughter, three grandchildren, two
brothers, Norris anti Rufus Deitz, two sisters, Lillie and Flora, and many other relatives

She bore her sufferings long, but without complaint. Her going will be
greatly missed by all who knew her, but we find consolation in the language of the Book,
"Blessed are the dead that die in the Lord and from henceforth yea saith the spirit
they do rest from their labors, and their works do follow them."
