    • Aged Resident and Well-Known Undertaker Died Here This Morning Was in his 80th year

      The death occurred in Waterloo this morning about [illegible] of one of the oldest residents of the town in the person of Adam Klippert, who has conducted an undertaking business here for many years. He was aged 79 years, 9 months and 19[?] days. Mr. Klippert was born in Germany on May 24, 1837 and came to Canada in 1853[?] settling in Kitchener, then Berlin. About forty years ago he moved to Waterloo and went into the manufacture of furniture with Mr. Wegenast. Later he went into the undertaking business and was actively engaged right up to within the last few weeks. Mr. Klippert's illness extended over several months although he has been able to be up and around as usual. He leaves to mourn his loss two sons and one daughter, Adam of Toronto, John of California and Mrs. Kilroy of Waterloo. The funeral will be held on Friday afternoon at the house at 2:00 o'clock and the service will be conducted by Rev. E. Burn of Emmanuel Evangelical Church, of which Mr. Klippert had been a member for many years. Interment will be made in Mount Hope cemetery.

      Klippert Undertaking Co. of Waterloo

      The office and warerooms of this firm are centrally located in the Huron Hotel Block,* east side of King street, occupying a number of apartments, including office and workshop in front of the warerooms in rear. The firm carries a full stock of caskets in black and white cloth and natural woods; also robes, trimmings and all kinds of funeral furnishings, besides two fine hearses and an undertaker's wagon. Funerals are often attended at a distance of 10 or 12 miles in the surrounding villages and country as far as Baden, Wellesley, Elmira, New Hamburg and other places in this district, and day or night calls are promptly answered. Mr. Klippert, of this firm, has had forty years' experience as a practical undertaker and funeral director, and is a graduate of the Toronto-Ontario Embalming School. For the past twelve years he has also filled the position of Government Inspector of Anatomy for this district, all bodies not claimed or owned by friends being duly inspected. His business in that line extends all over Waterloo County, and Mr. Klippert has a wide acquaintance with the undertaking trade throughout the province. The business of the grm [? was first established forty years ago, and for the past ten years has been under the entire control of Mr. Adam Klippert, who has now a large business established. He has been a resident of Waterloo for more than fifty years and is widely known throughout the county.

      *There wasn't a Huron Hotel in Waterloo according to several historians and archivists. It is likely an error. The City Hotel was on the east side of King Street and housed the undertaking business of J. K. Shinn a few years after Klippert died.
