  • Notes 
    • Sad Death of Frederick Wilken
      Passed away Sunday Evening the Home of His Daughter, Mrs. L. Bunch, Ill Only a Week with Pneumonia.


      That dread disease, pneumonia, has claimed another victim in the person of Mr. Frederick Wilken for many years a resident of Elmira, but who has resided with his daughter, Mr. L. Bunch, Albert St., Waterloo, for the past year, who passed away at nine o'clock Sunday evening at the age of 69 years, 6 months and 23 days. Deceased, who had always enjoyed excellent health, contracted the disease a week ago, from which he never recovered. His wife, Mrs. Wilken is seriously ill with the same disease, as is also Mr. Bunch. The late Mr. Wilken was born in Germany, and came to this country fifty years ago. Two later he was married to Mrs. Wilken of Rummelhardt, where they first resided. They subsequently resided in a number of other places until finally they moved to Elmira, where they lived 22 years. A year ago he came to Waterloo and has resided with his daughter since then. Besides his wife, who survives, a family of children are left to mourn his untimely demise, namely: John, Henry and Charles of Elmira; Wm. of Preston, Fred of Stony Plain N.W.T. and two daughters, Mrs. Theodore Urtel, of Elmira and Mrs. L. Bunch of Waterloo. The funeral was held on Wednesday afternoon at 1: 30 o'clock from the residence of his son-in-law, Mr. L. Bunch, Albert St., to the St. Paul's Lutheran Church, Berlin, for service, thence to Mount Hope Cemetery for interment. We extend our sympathy to the bereaved.
