10/31/1948

Mack.-Noah Haldeman, son of Andrew S. and Elizabeth (Haldeman) Mack, was born in Dougless Twp., Montgomery Co., Pa., Feb. 1, 1861; departed from this life Oct. 31, 1948, at the Good Samaritan Home, New Holland, Pa., where he had been living for a number of years; aged 87 y. 8 m. 30 d. He prepared to teach school by attending the Perkiomen Seminary (Academy) at Pennsburg, Pa. After teaching a few terms in his home community he moved to Lancaster Co. by request and continued teaching school until the spring of 1900. On Dec. 23, 1892, he was married to Lizzie Sensenig, of Farmersville, Pa. They had no children of their own but adopted Anna Nolls Bailey and also reared Anna Mae Ackerman, both of whom preceded him in death, as did also his wife. A number of grandchildren, nieces, and nephews survive, including Jesse and Elmer Mack, of Montgomery Co., and a grandnephew, Noah K. Mack, missionary to Africa. On April 4, 1899, he became superintendent of the Welsh Mountain Industrial Mission, continuing until 1910. On Aug. 30, 1900, he was ordained to the ministry for the Groffdale and Metzler congregations. During his early ministry he was especially active in evangelistic work, not only in the Lancaster Conference, but also in various western states. On Jan. 23, 1919, he was ordained bishop to assist Benjamin Weaver in the Weaverland-Groffdale district. The bishop board and church councils charged him with the bishop oversight of the York and Adams Co. district on Feb. 26, 1926. Even before his ordination he was interested in mission work and promoted missionary activity in the Lancaster Conference. He served on the examining committee for missionaries for approximately thirty years, as secretary of conference for nine years, as assistant moderator for a few years, and for some years as bishop of the Cumberland district and Tampa, Fla. Because of his advancing age he had resigned nearly all his work except as senior bishop of the York and Adams Co. district. He was one who filled a large place in the work of the church; was sound in doctrine and contended firmly and openly for it, emphasizing the spiritual life and also the doctrines of nonconformity and nonresistance. His interest and influence extended beyond the Lancaster Conference. (A fuller account of his life will appear in the 1949 Yearbook. He had planned his funeral arrangements, which were carried out as nearly as possible.

Services were conducted at the Good Samaritan Home by Mahlon Witmer, of the Groffdale district, with further services at the Groffdale Church. W. W. Graybill, conference moderator and a long-time associate, conducted the devotional service; Richard Danner, of the York and Adams Co. district, and J. Paul Graybill, of the Weaverland district, his successors in their respective districts, brought messages from Phil 1:21 and Acts 13:36 respectively; Arthur Ruth, of the district, led in prayer; and Noah W. Risser, assistant moderator of conference, conducted the service at the grave in the Groffdale Cemetery. A large audience, including twenty-four bishops, signified the respect in which he was held. The following concluded the facts he had prepared for his obituary; Thanks are to be extended to all in the general way, to all especially who rendered service and sympathy in any manner in connection with sickness and death and funeral. God be with you till we meet in heaven, where there are no funerals, nor pains nor tears.

DEATH OF GEORGE MEALEY, SR. He Was a Member of the Firm of Craig & Mealey, Coal Dealers, and Was One of the Pillars of Seibert United Evangelical Church After an illness of less than two weeks, starting with a nervous chill, and culminating in heart failure, George Mealey, Sr., passed away yesterday afternoon at quarter of five o'clock at his home, No. 414 North Eighth street. His death removes a good and valuable citizen, an upright, Christian gentleman, an honorable business man and a useful and enthusiastic member of Seibert Church. Mr. Mealey was born in County Derry, Ireland, March 31, 1837; and came to this country with his parents while still a young lad. After a short residence in Philadelphia, he moved to Allentown. He learned coach making with Fried & Lehr and followed the trade in Philadelphia. He was engaged for a time in the wood bending business at Cedarville and then established a milk route. He moved to Allentown in 1878 and soon after engaged in the coal business with Henry Colt. During the past eight years, since the retirement of Mr. COLT, he was in partnership with Charles J. Craig. Mr. Mealey was a member of the Allen Lodge, No. 71, I. O. O. F.; Greenleaf Lodge, No. 257, Knights of Pythias, and Franklin Chamber, No. 9, Knights of Friendship. He was converted and united with the Evangelical Church 39 years ago and remained faithful and steadfast in the faith to the end. When the split of 1891 occurred, Mr. Mealey enrolled himself with the Dubs faction and helped to organize Seibert United Evangelical congregation, to whose interests he gave much of his time and service. He was a member of the Building Committee and helped with his time, money and service to build the handsome edifice at Ninth and Liberty streets, whose dedication May 5th he had looked forward to with fond hopes. Mr. Mealey leaves behind an aged mother, two brothers, John and William, and two sisters, Mrs. Mary GILL and Mrs. Margaret Messinger all of Philadelphia; also a wife and these ten children: Mrs. John W. Horn, George H.., William J., Mrs. Charles G. Whitehead, Frank, Emma, Margaret, John, Irene and Jennie Mealey.

The funeral will take place Sunday afternoon.

Fly.-Estella, daughter of George and Rebecca Metzler, (sic) was born Jan. 28, 1889, at Earlington, Pa.; died Aug. 15, 1943, at her home at Hatfield, Pa.; aged 54 y. 6 m. 14 d. Two infant daughters preceded her in death. Besides her husband, Joseph Fly, she is survived by the following children: Mrs. Paul Spachman, Hatfield, Pa.; Walter M., Quakertown, Pa.; Harold M., Quakertown, Pa.; Pvt. Donald M., Fort Eustis, Va.; Lawrence and Margaret at home. She accepted Christ as her personal Saviour when she was 14 years old and united with the Lutheran Church. After her marriage she was received into the fellowship of the Souderton Mennonite Church, later transferring membership to Doylestown, and later to the newly organized congregation at Finland. She was sickly for the past 2 years, and bedfast for the past 6 months. She endured much suffering without complaint. One evening when we were gathered by her bedside, she said, "When I am gone, don't mourn for me, for I am going home. It will be the greatest pleasure in life to me to leave this world." Two weeks prior to her death she left her bed and we thought recovery was evident, but God saw fit to call her home and she peacefully fell asleep. We chose Rom. 8:18 for her text, a verse that was marked in her Bible.

Funeral services were held at the Souderton Church with interment in the adjoining cemetery. The service was in charge of Bro. Claude M. Shisler.
