    • LOCAL JEWELER DIES SUDDENLY

      John Henry Heller Was Well Known Business Man; His Death Will Be Widely Mourned.

      The community has been bereft of one of its highly respected members in the person of Mr. John Henry Heller, the wellknown jeweler. His death occurred suddenly at 7.15 on Sunday morning following a prolonged illness. The affliction which has terminated fatally was in the way of a nervous breakdown caused by overwork. For some time Mr. Heller had not been well but it was only in the last few weeks that it became serious. He had been away from work for six weeks. The immediate cause of death was heart failure. Mr. Heller was born in this city on August 30, 1868, and his age, therefore, was 52 years, 8 months and 1 day. He spent his life time in his native town. He was a son of the late J. H. Heller, who died a few years ago in whose footsteps he followed both in his exemplary private life and in his successful jewelry business. His acquaintances and friends were many, who admired his unassuming disposition, his friendliness and exemplary qualities. He was in the jewelery business 32 years during which time he built up a high class trade. With his brother established and maintained that business, and won a large number of patrons. The deceased is survived by his wife, Mary Trump, three sons and one daughter, who are Harold, Harry, Edward, and Myrtle (Mrs. A. W. Wallace) of Toronto. There are also four brothers and one sister, who are Fred and Alfred of Kitchener, Adolph of Waterloo, Allie of Frankfort, Ky., and Augusta (Mrs. A. W. Lorsch) of Detroit. The deceased was a member of St. Matthews church and of the local lodge of the Canadian Order of Foresters. The funeral will be held at 2.30 p.m. Wednesday from the residence, 146 South Queen street, and will be private. Interment will be made in Mount Hope cemetery.
