Arthur spent the majority of his working life farming, a vocation he loved. He particularly enjoyed caring for his animals, preparing the yearly supply of firewood, working in the fields and puttering around on the farm.
Following a barn fire, he reluctantly gave up farming and pursued custodial work at Rockway Mennonite Collegiate and Ten Thousand Villages. He thoroughly enjoyed the new friendships he formed in these settings.

Arthur was an active member of Steinmann Mennonite Church, taking on varied roles over the years.

Culp, Jane Elizabeth
(nee Simmons)
21 September 1954 - 28 January 2021

It is with the heaviest of hearts and the greatest of sorrow that the family of Jane Elizabeth Culp announce her passing from this world at the age of 66 on 28 January 2021 at Welland Hospital in Welland, Ontario. Jane was born on 21 September 1954 in Hamilton, Ontario to Douglas and Bernice Simmons, their only child. Jane is survived by her husband of 36 years, Ralph, and their two daughters, Victoria and Hilary, who will miss their Mum dearly. Jane will also be missed by her only In-laws, John and Carolyn Hay and Jane's only nephew Graham and only niece Kiersten.
Jane was raised on 'the mountain' in Hamilton and attended a local elementary school, where she skipped two grades, and then Westmount Secondary School. Jane earned her Bachelor degree from McMaster University and followed that by earning her Masters degree in Comparative Literature at the University of Toronto. Upon graduation, Jane became a high school teacher at Indec North in Bramalea, Ontario for a few years until she married and moved to Manitoba to be with her new husband, Ralph. Jane endured the harsh winters of Manitoba, and later Saskatchewan, before Ralph and Jane returned back to Ontario. Jane rarely complained of the cold in Ontario after experiencing a few Manitoba and Saskatchewan winters.
When Jane and Ralph returned to Vineland, Ontario, she elected to spend her time raising a family rather that returning to the teaching profession. In order to meet people in her new community, she became an Avon Lady, a task that she enjoyed for many years and where she made a number of new lifelong friends. Jane also got involved with her daughter's activities by serving a term as President of The Jordan Skating Club and volunteering with the Jordan Jets Swim Team. Jane could always be found in the arena or at the pool whenever her girls were participating.
Jane was extremely proud of her family and enjoyed all activities with them. The love of family extended to her furry friends. Often called 'The Cat Lady', she was known to have had as many as 10 cats plus a dog at one time. She, also loved music, reading a good book, watching a great movie, knitting, gardening, and travelling. Over the years, she managed to visit all Canadian provinces except Newfoundland. She loved the Caribbean cruises she went on and her numerous visits to Phoenix, Arizona and Florida.
Many years ago, Jane developed a muscle disease which eventually attacked her lungs and ultimately resulted in Jane requiring a double lung transplant at Toronto General Hospital. Although the new lungs performed admirably until the end, the original disease persevered and attacked the rest of her body. Jane never regretted the decision to hay e a transplant, and was eternally grateful to the surgeons that performed the procedure and to the unknown donor who allowed Jane to have a few more years of time with her family. The family would like to thank the staffs of Toronto General Hospital, E.W. Bickle Rehab Center in Toronto, Hotel Dieu Rehab Centre in St. Catharines, St. Catharines Hospital and Welland Hospital for your care and compassion in attending to Jane's needs during her various hospital stays. You are too numerous to mention individually, but your efforts were deeply appreciated.
In lieu of flowers, donations to the Toronto Hospital & Western Hospital to support the organ transplant program would be appreciated by the family. Please visit www.tgwhf.ca or call (416) 603-5300. Jane always encouraged anyone who has not done so, to register to be an organ donor. Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be no visitation or memorial service held at this time. Cremation has taken place with internment at a future date. A Celebration of Life will be held at a later time when the COVID-19 pandemic has eased.

In loving memory of Clifford (C li f f e) Snider Jr. who passed away after a brief health challenge at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in Charlottetown, PEI on Saturday March 26, 2022 .

Dave Tomlinson, Ervin Jewitt.

Doras Stevanus, Dianne Stevanus and Grace Shantz. Also predeceased by his step parents, J. Stewart Drake and Ethel (Campbell) «i»Drake.
«/i»Cliffe was a vivacious, clever; creative, handy. loving, funny, optimistic man who enjoyed gardening, cooking, driving to discover the beautiful PEI scenery and towns (he planned to drive until he was 110), meeting and conversing with the Old Order Mennonites (in their dialect) who were settling in PEI from Ontario, attending church at Faithworks Centre, studying theological roots of biblical scripture and taking in biblical teachings online. He loved his Lord, his family and friends, "helping the old people"; sending funny and upbeat text messages with animated emojis, building, all things aviation-related, classical and gospel music and so much more. He was gearing up in recent years to write his memoirs about his vast life experience and reflections.
As the eldest of five children, he had many responsibilities on the family farm in St Agatha, Ontario. After completing public school, he began working various jobs, including building Hallman jacks, electric organs and wooden radiocabinets, working at Kaufman Rubber, doing construction work, and working for a funeral home. He was eager to return to school, and with only a Grade 8 education, and after scoring well on an aptitude test, was accepted at Waterloo Lutheran University (now Laurier) and graduated in 1957 with a Bachelor's degree. In 1962, he graduated from Goshen College Biblical Seminary in Indiana. While there, he obtained his pilots licence and had plans for doing missionary wor k abroad.
Some of the many professional roles he held over the years included; pastor (part-time) at Hawkesville Mennonite Church, principal (part-time) at Rockway Mennonite High School, guidance counsellor and geography teacher at Grand River Collegiate, head of guidance counselling at various high schools (Cameron Heights Collegiate, Bluevale Collegiate Institute, Kitchener Collegiate Institute) between 1969 and 1987. For many summers during those years, he spent time in Toronto pursuing graduate level course work at the University of Toronto in education and theology. By the end of his years of studying, he had earned Bachelor of Arts (BA), Bachelor of Divinity (BD), Master of Education ( M Ed) degrees and was a Master of Theology (TH M) candidate. Somehow, he also managed to find time for several summers to work with his brother John Snider & sons with a major grass-cutting contract along the 401 highway, where he earned the affectionate nick name "Stayner". In his retirement years (Everyone who knew Cliffe understands that he never really retired), Cliffe enjoyed different types of employment experiences such as trucking for Detweiller Transport, helping an auctioneer with financial management. pumping gas at Petro Canada during the night shift, and most recently, staffing his stepson Darren Matheson's Trout River Pottery booth at the farmer's market in Charlottetown.
From the mid-l960s to the 1980s he lived with his first wife Ethel and their children in Elmira, Ontario. There he attended Elmira Mennonite Church where he was known to lead thought-provoking adult Sunday school classes. He enjoyed spending time at the family's 2O-acre "Hobby" farm/woods in nearby Floradale, Ontario where they did organic gardening, small scale farming, chopped wood, tapped maple trees and collected antique tractors. He delighted in bringing garden produce home from the farm to Elmira and canning and preserving the
harvest of delicious food to enjoy the year through.
His motto was always, "Life is an Adventure". He had hope in life Eternal and didn't want people to be sad when he passed on because, as he said, "I'm going to a better place"!
The funeral for Clifford Snider Jr. was held on March 31st, 2022 in New Glasgow, PEI. A memorial celebration of life-service was later held at Faithworks Centre, on July 24, 2022, followed by the interment his ashes near Charlottetown, PEI.
Rest in peace, Cliffe. You are missed and loved by all.

And the bells tolled 173 times
'Inseparable' Baden couple together in life and in death
LIZ MONTEIROHarley and Ruth Herner played board games together. They went grocery shopping together. They even had knee surgery together two years ago in Toronto.
On Sunday, the elderly Baden couple died together."They were inseparable,'' said Laura Herner, one of eight grandchildren. "It's so fitting that they go together.''"Neither of them would have lasted without the other,'' said Eloise Klaehn, a family friend. "That's what they would have wanted.''The couple were coming home from visiting their daughter, Beth Bear, in Wingham when the crash occurred.They were travelling east on Perth Line 86 west of Listowel just before noon when their pickup truck crossed the centre line and went into the ditch on the west side of the highway, striking a large tree.Harley, who was driving, was pronounced dead at the scene. Ruth was sent to the London Health Sciences Centre, where she later died.Perth OPP said the road was snow-covered at the time. The cause of the crash is still under investigation, Const. Glen Childerley said yesterday.Yesterday, St. James Lutheran Church in Baden rang the church bells 173 times in memory of the long lives of Harley, who was in his 87th year, and Ruth, who was in her 86th year.The Herners were fixtures in Baden, where they'd always lived. The village wanted to show its appreciation for the couple, who always gave generously to their community.Laura Herner said she feels lucky to have had her grandparents for as long as she did.
"We have so many memories,'' the 26-year-old said.At Christmas, Ruth prepared a turkey and her famous Jell-O salad for the family of about 20 people.
Everyone brought a side dish and Ruth did the baking."Grandma made the best sugar cookies and cherry pie,'' Laura said.Each day, Harley still went to work shortly after 6 a.m. even though he'd already passed the business reigns to his son, David.Herner Wood Products Ltd., on Snyder's Road in Baden, opened in 1950 and Harley rarely missed a day.Ruth prepared lunch every Saturday and brought it to the store.As a young man, Harley, worked for J & J Livingston, which later became the Dominion Linseed Oil Co.For 11 years, Harley worked as a driver-salesperson, distributing products across Ontario.He was also the personal driver for factory owner J.P. Livingston, transporting the boss around in a Cadillac.On occasion, Harley brought Ruth along. Livingston would often slip Harley a $20 to spend with Ruth. When the couple got married in October 1944, Livingston gave them $200.Shortly after, Harley, a carpenter by trade, left to start his own business.Klaehn said the Herners had a special bond that few couples have.At the celebration of their 60th anniversary two years ago, the couple held hands the whole time.
"It was very romantic,'' she said.A private funeral service will be held at the Mark Jutzi Funeral Home in New Hamburg tonight. An informal visitation for the community will be held at the funeral home on Friday from 1 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 9 p.m.Harley and Ruth Herner are survived by three children, David, Beth Bear and Gail Herner; 11 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
