  • Notes 
    • MRS. CHAS. KLINCK, SR. DIED ON TUESDAY
      WAS ONE OF ELMIRA'S OLDEST AND MOST RESPECTED CITIZENS

      A resident of Elmira for upward of sixty years, and an honored wife and mother departed this life on Tuesday, January 4, inst., in the person of Mrs. Charles Klinck, Sr. The deceased lady had reached the ripe age of 80 years 3 months and 13 days.

      Mrs. Klinck's maiden name was Elizabeth Hollinger. She and Mr. Klinck were married on January 3, 1860, at the then town of Berlin by the Rev. Mr. Bindemann. Her home was in Heidelberg and there the young couple resided for three months before removing to Elmira in April of 1860. On January 3, 1920, they had the rare good fortune of celebrating their diamond wedding, representing sixty years of happy married life. Their children number nine and all of these were able to attend the diamond wedding celebration.

      Mr. Klinck, her husband is still in fairly good health, though he has passed his 85th birthday. The names of their surviving children are: Miss Catherine Klinck, who lives at home, Mr. George Klinck, Mrs. John B. Lein, Mr. Charles N. Klinck, Misses Carolline and Lizzie Klinck, living at home, Mr. August Klinck, Mrs. William Heckendorn and Miss Ida, living at home.

      All the children and grandchildren with the exception of one granddaughter (Mrs. W.D. Schmidt, of Kitchener) reside in Elmira.
      Mr. and Mrs. Klinck's grandchildren number twenty and their great-grandchildren four. Of her father's family, only Mrs. Margaret Wahl of Elmira survives her.

      During the first 43 years of their married life, Mr. and Mrs. Klinck lived on the farm opposite the C.P.R. station, adjacent to Elmira, on north Arthur street. When her husband purchased the farm it was in a primitive state. Mrs. Klinck proved a valuable helpmate to him in their task of meeting and overcoming the vicissitudes which beset pioneers in Northern Waterloo. She was a woman of sound Christian principles, possessed considerable strength of character and was a pattern of industry.

      In 1903 Mr. and Mrs. Klinck retired to a fine residence on North Arthur street. During those sixty years, Mr. and Mrs. Klinck had lived in only two houses. The one on the farm and the other a quarter of a mile from it on the ?? street.

      Mrs. Klinck had for thirty-seen years been a sufferer from rheumatism, and for about seven years she had been unable to leave her home. Shortly before Christmas, she became ill, but it was not until Sunday morning that her condition became serious. She grew gradually weaker and death ended her sufferings on Tuesday.

      Her funeral will be held on Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock, from her late residence, proceeding to St. Paul's Lutheran Church for services, after which interment will take place in the Elmira Union Cemetery.

      In her death Elmira loses a highly esteemed woman and her husband and family a beloved mother and wife. Hers has been a signally useful, fruitful life. Her departure will be sincerely mourned by all who enjoyed her friendship or acquaintance. The sympathy of the community will go out to the bereaved family. [Comment: Question marks (??) have been placed where the information was illegible in the obituary.]
