      News Of Death of Last Surviving Member of Family Held Back For Fear of Too Great a Shock

      The two last surviving children of Mrs. Jane Christman's family of seven children, passed away within several days of each other. Word was received this week of the death and burial of her son Philip H. Christman at Denver, Colorado, following a paralytic stroke. He was widely known in mercantile circles there. Mrs. Christman was informed of the son's death this week. Word of the death of her daughter, Agnes Christman, who was well-known in town, reached here on Tuesday but was not passed on to Mrs. Christman immediately for fear that news of the deaths of her last two children within such a short time of each other and so sudden would be too much.

      The funeral service of Miss Agnes Christman was held at 10:30 Thursday morning from the Dreisinger Funeral home. Interment was made in the family plot, in Elmira. Rev. J. Ure Stewart conducted the funeral services.

      The account of the death of Philip Christman as recorded in a Denver paper was as follows:

      Mr. Christman was born in Elmira, Ontario, on March 22, 1876. He came to Denver, 27 years ago and had lived here since. He was a member of Masonic Lodge, No. 84 A.F. and A.M. He is survived by his wife and a daughter of Denver, his mother, Mrs. Jane Christman, and a sister, Agnes of Elmira. Funeral services will be held on Wednesday after at the Olinger Mortuary, Speer boulevard and Sherman street. Burial will be in Fairmount Cemetery."

      The death of Miss Agnes Christman took place at the Old People's Home in Kitchener. Deceased was born in Elmira on Sept. 13, 1872. Her death followed a short illness of flu which later developed into pneumonia. On Monday she expressed a wish to have her mother come to see her, but owing to Mrs. Christman's age, which is nearly 90, it was thought advisable for her not to go.1a
