    • DEATH OF MRS. BIVOUR.

      The critical illness of Mrs. Bivour, the aged widow of the late August Bivour, as reported in the Maple Leaf last week, culminated in her death on Friday evening. She had been on a visit to her daughter at Petersburg when taken with her last illness. Notwithstanding her advanced age-80 years-she was in rugged health until the last few months when her system gradually succumbed until the end came. Mrs. Bivour was born in Germany where she was married in 1847. The young couple emigrated at once, landing in New York, where they remained for a time, then moved to Waterloo County, living near Berlin and afterwards at Baden. About the year 1864 they came to Wellesley, settling on the homestead, now occupied by Mr. Chas. Poomer, on the Third line, where she has lived ever since, and where her husband died twelve years ago. She was held in the highest esteem by all who knew her. Eight children were born to this couple, five of whom are dead, the living ones being Mrs. Henry Knipfer, Petersburg Mrs. Poomer, on the homestead, and Fred Bivour, of this village. The funeral occurred from Mr. Bivour's residence on Tuesday afternoon, the remains being interred in the Miss. Lutheran cemetry [sic] in the presence of a large gathering. The pall bearers were chosen from amongst those who had known her in the early days. Rev. Mr. Lochner, her pastor, conducted the impressive funeral services after the interment, having returned home on account of her death, from Ottawa, where he was in attendance upon a Synod meeting. Rev. Mr. Lochner was called home from attending conference at Ottawa on Saturday by the death of Mrs. Bivour, of Petersburg.
