    She grew to maturity in the Bethune settlement and on Oct. 17, 1929, was united in marriage with William Stahlecker.  To this union were born four sons and four daughters.

Mrs. Stahlecker was ill much of her life.  She last submitted to surgery in September 1961.  After this she got along quite well until January 1962.  She died in Memorial Hospital at Burlington on Jan. 12, 1964 at the age of 60 years, 6 months and 22 days.
