    • Joseph B. Hochstetler, son of Benjamin A. and Elizabeth (Schrock) Hochstetler, was born in Johnson County, Iowa, August 13, 1871; died at the Mercy Hospital, Iowa City, Iowa, September 22, 1956; aged 85 years, 1 month, 9 days. His entire life was spent in the same community where he was born. In his youth he became a member of the church and remained a faithful Christian to the end.

      On December 3, 1893, he was married to Mary Ann Stutzman, who died April 15, 1936. To this union 11 children were born. Surviving are 8 children (Lena, Mrs. Lee Schlabach, Mulino, Oregon; Ben, North English, Iowa; Anna, Mrs. Theodore Larsen, Kalona, Iowa; Ira, Iowa City; Ira, Denver, Colorado; Mrs. Gertrude Shetler, Wellman; Omar, Topeka, Indiana; and Earl, Ligonier, Indiana), 32 grandchildren, 30 great-grandchildren, one brother and 2 sisters (Dave, Mrs. Lizzie Yoder; and Mary, Mrs. John Yoder).

      After his marriage, they moved on the farm near Kalona where he resided at the time of his death. Besides their own children, they also made a home for Susie Pugh for a number of years.

      He had been very sick about 5 years ago but regained normal health again for one of his years until a few days before his death. He did not feel the necessity of consulting a doctor until the day of his death, when he was immediately taken to the hospital but died less than 12 hours later.

      He spent much of his time reading and in meditation and prayer.

      Funeral services were held September 25 at the East Union Church in charge of Albert S. Miller and Morris Swartzendruber.
