  • Notes 
    • Albert Ernest Ainsworth, 33 King Street, died suddenly of a heart attack at the Link Belt Ltd. About 5:50 Friday evening. He was 70 years of age. He had just completed his work for the day when he suffered the attack.

      A son of the late Mr. and Mrs. John Ainsworth, he was born at Barrow-on-Soar, England, and came to Canada about 40 years ago. He had been engaged as a shipper at the foundry for 20 years. He attended Wesley United Church and was a member of the Legion, having served in the First Great War with the 118th Battalion for four years.

      He is survived by his wife, the former Elizabeth Wilson, whom he married at Leicester, England, in December, 1900, three daughters, Mrs. Ernest (Hilda) Evans and Mrs. Clifford (Ida) Vines, Elmira, and Mrs. Frank (Beatrice) Simons, Ajax, Ont., give grandchildren, one brother, John, and one foster brother, Herbert, both of Elmira and one sister in England.

      One son, Walter, died in infancy and one brother, Walter, and one foster sister, Mrs. Harold Engler, also predeceased him. The remains rested at the home from 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon until Monday morning when removal was made to the Dreisinger Funeral Chapel, following a private service at 10:30 a.m.

      The funeral was held on Monday afternoon at 2:30 from the Funeral Chapel. Services were conducted by Rev. A L. Thompson who chose as his text "My Times Are In Thy Hand"; Scion. 31.

      The Link-Belt Foundry was closed on that day and his fellow employees attended the service in a body. Also present were members of the Legion, commemorating the fact that he was a veteran of the First Great War. Poppies were placed on the casket by members of the Poppy Association.

      The pall-bearers were, Henry Brunck, Alan Schmermund, Bert Howlett, Geo. Pfaff, William Shoemaker and L. Woodall. Interment was made in the Elmira Cemetery.1a
