    • MRS. P. BERNHARDT DIES SUDDENLY AGED RESIDENT VICTIM OF SEIZURE AT HER HOME YESTERDAY

      One of Preston's oldest and most respected residents passed away Friday evening, in the person of Caroline Weihe, wife of Peter Bernhardt, Queen Street. Mrs. Bernhardt's death came as a distinct shock to her many friends, for although in her eightieth year, she had been in exceptionally good health, and was stricken suddenly yesterday noon while engaged about her household duties. She lapsed into unconsciousness, and passed on about seven o'clock last evening.

      Mrs. Bernhardt was born in Blair on April 21, 1853, and had lived in this district practically all her life. Just three months ago she and Mr. Bernhardt marked the 55th anniversary of their marriage. She was a faithful member of St. Peter's Lutheran church, and an active worker in the ladies aid society, being one of the first members of that society when it was organized many years ago.

      Mrs. Bernhardt is survived by her husband, one sister, Mrs. Mary Schnarr, of Rochester, N.Y., three sons, Valentine and Arthur of Preston, and Oscar of Collingwood, and eleven grandchildren. A daughter, Rosaline, and a son, Irvin, predeceased her some years ago. The funeral will be held from the residence, 766 Queen Street, on Monday afternoon at 2:30 o'clock, with Rev. W.H. Knauff in charge. Friends are asked to kindly omit flowers. Interment will be made in the Preston Cemetery.1a
