  Noted events in her life were:

1. Her obituary was published in the Allentown Democrat on 19 Nov 1879 in Allentown, Lehigh, PA. 5 DIED. -- Lydia, the wife of Mr. Jonathan Fenstermacher, of Lowhill, died on Thursday week, after long suffering with consumption. She was a devoted wife and mother, and her demise is sadly mourned by the breaved husband and family. In her death the relatives and friends and community at large have encountered a loss that is irreparable, and while we realize the futility of human efforts in attempting to life the veil by affliction, yet there is this consolation taht it has undoubtedly fallen to her lot to realize the fruition of that "peach that passeth understanding." She was a noble wife, and with the husband remaining we sympathize in his deep affliction. Deceased was a daughter of Jacob George, decd., of the Leather Corner Post.
