    • Death of Joseph L. Ramseyer

      A prominent and well known resident of this community passed away early on Tuesday morning when Mr. Joseph L. Ramseyer was called by death at the age of 58 years. He had been seriously ill for some weeks and the news of his death, though expected, caused deep grief among a large number of friends. The deceased was a son of the late Peter Ramseyer and resided on the farm all his life. He was a kindly and friendly neighbor and his cheerful spirit made him a host of friends. He was a devout christian throughout his life's career and took art active part in all matters pertaining to his church. There are left in deep bereavement his sorrowing widow, who before her marriage was Mary Roth, and a family of ten children. The children are: Jeremiah, William and Edna, of Kitchener, (Ada) Mrs. Nelson Litwiller, Missionary at Pehuajo, Argentine Republic, South America, and Aaron, Mahlon, Anna May, Armand, Reta and Dorcas at home. One daughter, Nancy, died about three years ago in India where she held a missionary post, and another daughter died several years ago at the age of seven years. The funeral was held yesterday afternoon from his late home to the Pentecostal Tabernacle at Kitchener where the funeral service was held after which the earthy remains of the departed were laid to rest in Woodland Cemetery. The funeral was attended by a large circle of sorrowing relatives and friends. The sympathy of the whole community is extended to the bereaved ones in their sad loss.
