  • Notes 
    • Suddenly, at her residence, R. R. #3, Galt, about 1 a. m. on Friday, June 20, 1958, in her 45th year. Wife of the late Charles Henry Rahman. Mother of Ralph. Service at the Stager Funeral Home, Hespeler, on Mon. , Jun. 23 at 2: 30. Interment Hespeler Cemetery. Mrs. Rahman of Rahman's Corners, at the junction of the Back Hespeler Road and a Puslinch road, was murdered, struck repeatedly by a heavy instrument. It became known as Rahman's Corners in 1937, when Mr. and Mrs. Rahman opened a pop stand. Mrs. Rahman had left her sister, Mrs. Howard Gillow's home on Forbes St. in Hespeler, where she had been visiting, around 12: 30 a. m. Over the course of a year or so, there had been several break-ins at the store. Her body was discovered by Stanley Armstrong of Hespeler, who was a part-time employee. When a neighbour, Everard Sanderson, noticed that cars were driving up to the gasoline pumps and then leaving without obtaining service, Mr. Sanderson concluded that something was wrong. He phoned Mr. Armstong, who arrived about 9: 15 a. m. Finding no-one in the store, he returned home but worried at the continued reports that Mrs. Rahman hadn't returned, he decided to check again shortly before 1 p. m. , when he found her body in the garage.
