  • Notes 
    • THE PASSING OF MRS. CATH. STROME

      IS GENERALLY REGRETTED BY CITIZENS

      It was noted in last week's Signet that Mrs. Catherine Strome had passed from life unto death. Mrs. Strome sustained a fall off the steps of her house, about two weeks before her death. This fall was followed by a paralytic stoke and she passed into the Great Beyond, on Wednesday, Oct. 20. Her maiden name was Catherine Sand and her birthplace Erbsville. Fifty-three years ago she married Mr. Aaron Strome and they lived for many years on a farm east of Floradale. Their union was blessed with ten children, of whom nine are living. Her husband was fatally injured by falling from the gable end of a barn. This accident occurred ten years ago. Afterward, Mrs. Strome moved to Elmira and had ever since resided here. One daughter, then five years of age, predeceased Mrs. Strome. Of the surviving members of the family, there are six sons and three daughters. The sons are: Milton, of Petersburg; Astor, Ezra and Erwin, of Engelfield, Sask.; Melvin of Rochester, N.Y., and Orrin, of Pleasant Dale, Sask. The daughters are: Mrs. David Robertson and Mrs. A. R. Schwindt, both of Elmira; and Mrs. Max Oberholtzer, of Erie, Pa. Mrs. Strome is also survived by one brother, Mr. John D. Sand, of Iowa. She was aged 72 years, two months and two days. Her funeral, which was held on Saturday afternoon, was largely attended. It was conducted by Rev. G. F. Brown of the Evangelical Church, of which the deceased lady had been a life-long and consistent member. Besides the Elmira relatives and their families, relatives were also present from Kitchener, Petersburg and other places. Included among these were: Mr. Melvin Strome, of Rochester, N.Y.; Mrs. Milton Strome, of Petersburg; a grandson, Mr. Maitland Strome, of Detroit; and Mrs. Max Oberholtzer, of Erie, Pa. Many have been the words of regret expressed over Mrs. Strome's death. By an exemplary life, she had won the esteem of all who knew her. The Signet extends the sympathy of the community to the bereaved family.
