    History Married by Abraham L Friesen.
    Obituary - Our father, John M. Classen, was born in South Russia on the 10th of September, 1865. On June 5, 1887 he was baptized by Alt. Abraham L. Friesen and accepted into the church membership. On the 12th of July, 1891, he and I, Margareta Rempel, entered holy matrimony in which we have shared our joys and sorrows for 32 years and 11 days. We were blessed with 13 children; seven sons and six daughters. One son passed away in early infancy. He became a grandfather to ten grandchildren.
    On the 22nd of October 1911, he was chosen to serve the Church as a deacon which he did so faithfully until his death. He died on the 23rd of July, 1923 at 1 p.m. after a 7-day severe abdominal infection. He attained the age of 58 years, 10 months, and 13 days.
    "Oh, with sadness I must say You died far too soon - For all yours, who with your widow, are shedding tears at your casket. Wife and children, Brother, we will not see you in this life anymore and it will be painful. But one day you will be resurrected, and then we will be rejoicing - When the Good will have won the victory, when the burdens will be removed from us, when the sting and curse of death will be conquered."
