    • Mrs. A. Werner

      Much sympathy is expressed by the citizens of Elmira for Mayor A. Werner in the death of his beloved wife which occurred unexpectedly at 10.45 p.m. on Friday last. Mrs. Werner had been feeling in fairly good health until that morning when she was taken ill and passed away at night. About a year and a-half ago she suffered from a fall and it was some time afterwards before she was able to be about and although fairly well recovered, the accident prevented her from moving about as freely as formerly. Mrs. Werner's maiden name was Mary Caldwell, daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William Caldwell, and was born in Glasgow, Scotland. in the year 1851. Her grandparents on both sides were among the Covenaners of Scotland. With her parents she came to Canada when six years of age and the family settled in Galt. Some years afterwards Mrs. Werner, then Mary Caldwell, went to Montreal where she resided for some time and later came to Elmira and was married here on May 28, 1876, to Mr. A. Werner and for 54 years has been his kind and loving helpmate. To them were born a family of two children, a daughter and one son, the daughter being Mrs. Robert MacMicking of Edmonton, Alta., but the son, Sheldon, passed away during the flu epidemic of 1918 . The latter was assistant Professor of Metalurgy at McGill University, Montreal and he was doing some special work for the Dominion Government at Providence, R. 1., when he became a victim of the flu. Both Mrs. MacMicking and Mrs. Sheldon Werner, the son's widow who resides in Montreal, were here for the funeral. Besides her husband, Mayor Werner and daughter, two sisters also survive, Mrs. A. B, Slater of London, Ont., and Mrs. W. H. Wyllie of San Diego, Cal. The late Mrs. Werner was a consistent and active member of Gale Presbyterian Church here and always took an active part in all matters pertaining to its welfare. She was one of the charter members of Gale Church in Elmira and in years gone by had done her share in helping to further all branches of Church work. The funeral on Wednesday afternoon to the Elmira cemetery was very largely attended, the services at the home on Mill street being conducted by Rev. M. H. Sewell, the pastor of the deceased lady, assisted by Rev. Wm. Hamilton of Guelph, minister here for 29 years and who is now ninety years of age. Friends present at the funeral and callers at the home previous to the funeral came from London, Toronto, Brantford, Windsor, Kitchener, Waterloo, Glenallan and other surrounding places to show their respect for one who was held in their highest esteem. The pall-bearers at the funeral were Messrs. J. Mahood, E. G. Winn, W. Moser, A. Brandt, Joseph Johnston and George Glenny. A memorial service for the deceased lady will be held in Gale Presbyterian church on Sunday next.
