    • Death of an Aged Resident; Mrs. Francoise Pequegnat Passes Away in Her 89th Year. Came here in 1874.

      One of Kitchener's oldest and most highly respected residents passed away Thursday evening in the death of Mrs. Francoise Pequegnat, who died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Oscar Schneider, at 18 Samuel street. The deceased was in her 89th year and was born in Switzerland on August 1, 1829. Mrs. Pequegnat with her husband Ulysses Pequegnat, who predeceased her in 1894, came to this country in 1874, locating immediately in this city, where she had since resided. In 1851 she was married to Ulysses Pequegnat and was the mother of 16 children, two of whom died in infancy in Switzerland and one in this city. She is survived by 13 children, 50 grandchildren. Her surviving children are Arthur, Paul, George, and Philemon Pequegnat, of Kitchener, James of Stratford, Leon of New Hamburg, Joseph of Guelph, and Albert of Brantford, Emma, Mrs. George Heimbach, of Colville, Washington; Lena, Mrs. William Fleischer, of Hamilton; Rachel, Mrs. Oscar Schneider of Kitchener; Lea, Mrs. R. W. Chamberlain of Calgary, and Dina, Mrs. B. F. Stumpf, of Kitchener. Mrs. Pequegnat during her long residence in this city built up many friendships. She was a devoted member of the Benton Street Baptist Church and her activities in the early days of the church's history in this city did much to help the growth of the church. She was beloved by all who knew her for her genial disposition and sterling Christian character. Her bereaved sons and daughters will have the sympathy of a wide circle of friends. The funeral was held from her late home on Monday afternoon at 2 o'clock and at 2: 30 from the Benton Street Baptist Church. Interment will be made at Mount Hope Cemetery.
