    Health Died from complications following a stroke. 
    History Sarah married Jacob J. Becker. Sarah and Jacob's granddaughter, Laurine Becker married William Koehn, son of Henry A. Koehn and grandson of Abraham Koehn (Abraham being the brother of Sarah Koehn).
    Sarah and Jacob settled East of Hutchinson near Halstead, Kansas. The first church services were held in homes, with Jacob and Sarah Becker's home being used the most as it was near the center of Brotherhood, and those that attended services all stayed for dinner.
    In the year 1882, the congregation got it's first church building when Barnhard Warkentine, a Halstead flour miller and importer of Turkey wheat from Russia, donated a dwelling house to be used for this purpose on one of his farms. This was located one-half mile North and one mile East of Halstead. This dwelling house church was used until 1896 when the membership had increased to forty-six for which the building was inadequate. It was dismantled and the first new church building was erected. During this time services were held at school District No. 47. Here also in this school all the children got their education.
    On November 22, 1900 Jacob Becker was hauling flour from Newton to Halstead for Barnhard Warkentine, and while on this route he had a stroke at Halstead and died shortly after. It has been said that he was a very jolly and friendly person. He was laid to rest near the place where he was living, in the Halstead Cemetery, later his grave was moved, along with several others, when the highway took that corner of the Cemetery.
    Sarah Becker and her group of children faced a grim future and from what information we can collect they were separated into different homes. She passed away on March 31, 1916 near Meno, Oklahoma, at the home of Dan and Ida (Becker) Eck. She was laid to rest in the Dan A. Eck family plot in the Meno Mennonite Cemetery.
