Lina Z. Ressler (1869-1948) and her husband, Jacob, were Mennonite missionaries in India during the early part of the twentieth century. Prior to her work in India, Lina had worked in home missions in the Chicago area, and after their return from the mission field the couple worked for a Mennonite publishing house.
