      Mrs. Nicholas Hedrich Victim of Heart Ailment; Funeral Held on Sunday Last

      Seriously ill only a few days, Selina Rook, widow of Nicholas Hedrich, passed away Thursday at the home of her son, Mr. Fred Hedrich. The last Mrs. Hedrich who was 69 years of age, was the daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. Fred Rook. She was born in the United States but had resided the greater portion of her life in Elmira and was widely known and highly respected in the community. For some time she had suffered from heart trouble and took a turn for the worse early last week. She was married to Mr. Hedrich, who predeceased her in 1881. She is survived by four sons and one daughter Henry, John and Fred of Elmira, and Herbert of Kitchener; Mrs. Emma Eisenbach, of Brantford. One brother, John Rook, of Elmira, and a sister, Mrs. Caroline Wels of Preston also survive.

      The funeral, which was largely attended, took place Sunday to St. Paul's Lutheran Church of which she had been a faithful member for many hears and thence to Elmira Cemetery with Rev. A. Gallmeier, officiating. Pallbearers were Messrs. John H. Ruppel, Fred Seigner, Henry Ruppel, John Geisel, Henry Muth and Casper Heimbecker.
