      ____________________________

      Word of the death of Mrs. Stunn on Tuesday evening, October 8, 1929, at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Albert Evans in Beaverton, in her 84th year, after a short illness. She was born in Puslinch Township, the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nicholas Cober, pioneers of Puslinch Township, who lived on the farm now occupied by Donald Currie. There she grew up and married. They lived for a time at Ethel but came back and occupied the Cober homestead for a number of years. About twenty-four years ago, they retired from the farm and came to Hespeler. Her husband predeceased her in 1914 and shortly afterwards, she went to Beaverton to make her home with her daughter. She has been a visitor with relatives here almost every year since. Those who knew her, knew her kindly disposition and neighbourliness. Survived by Mrs. Evans; two sisters, Mrs. Samuel Panabaker of Puslinch Township; Mrs. Abraham Witmer of Vancouver; and one brother, Peter Cober of Kitchener. Her body was brought to Hespeler on Friday and the funeral was held from the home of Mr. and Mrs. Oliver Gingrich on Friday at 3. Interment in Hespeler Cemetery.
