The Mutual Support Society of Starbuck, Manitoba, was founded in 1926 by Peter J. Dyck, Elder Johann Klassen, Gerhard Braun, Franz Klassen, and Jacob Rempel, under the name "Starbucker Beerdigungskasse," as a burial aid society, chiefly for the new immigrants from Russia in 1922-1925. In 1955 the membership was 855 including children. The burial aid, which was originally $30 per adult and $20 for children under 12, was $250 per adult and $150 for children in 1955. The annual membership fee was $2.00 for adults ($3.00 for one above 40 years of age) and $1.00 for children.
