  • Notes 
    • A. S. Uttley, Dry Cleaning Pioneer, Dies

      Abraham S. Uttley, a pioneer in the Twin City dry cleaning and laundry industry, died today at the K-W Hospital, after a brief illness. He was 91. Mr. Uttley, 292 Weber St. E., was in the dry cleaning business on Queen Street South, for 60 years. He began his career with the Waterloo Woollen Mills, in 1892. In 1905 he founded the Berlin Dye Works on Queen Street South and in 1946 he incorporated this business with the Pearl Laundry, which he bought from the Knipfel estate. The Pearl Laundry was sold in 1966, to Newtex Ltd., but Mr. Uttley continued to visit the Newtex plants daily, until he was hospitalized four weeks ago. He was a life member of the Dry Cleaners and Launderers Institute of Ontario and past president of the mid-western division of the institute. In June he played 18 holes of golf in the Dry Cleaners Association tournament. Born in Elmira April 26, 1879, he was a son of the late Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Uttley. He lived in the Twin City area all his life and attended St. Mark's Lutheran Church. He was predeceased by his wife, the former Lecetta Mahn in January, 1950 and by two brothers and two sisters. Surviving are three sons, Roy, Earl and Douglas and two daughters, Beatrice and Mabel, all of Kitchener; eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. The body will be at the Ratz-Bechtel Funeral Home, after 3 p.m., Saturday, where Rev. Willis Ott will conduct the service, Monday, at 2 p.m. Burial will be in Woodland cemetery.
