      Double Bereavement


      With the sad death of Mr. Webourne Oswell Doerr, on Wednesday evening, following the passing of his wife, whose remains were laid to rest on Wednesday, there has come a double bereavement to this home, the only member of the family remaining being their fourteen months old son. Both young people were victims of the Spanish influenza. A week ago Sunday Mr. Doerr took ill, but despite the most tender nursing and care he succumbed on Wednesday evening at 6 o'clock to pneumonia. The late Mr. Doerr was the only child of Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Doerr and was born in this city 28 years ago. He received his schooling in Kitchener, including a business course at the business college, after which he was identified with his brother in the wholesale confectionary business. After traveling for a number of years he became assistant manager of the company, which position he had held for the past five years. About two years ago he was married to Miss Merner of Waterloo, who predeceased him only a few days. He leaves his parents and an infant son aged 14 months. The funeral will take place on Saturday afternoon at 2.30 o'clock from the residence of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. H. Doerr, 236 Weber St. West, to Mount Hope cemetery for internment. The late Mr. and Mrs. Doerr were highly esteemed by their hosts of friends, by whom their passing will be deeply mourned. The heartfelt sympathy of a wide acquaintanceship will be extended to the grief stricken parents in the double bereavement which has been experienced.
