  • Notes 
    • DEATH OF MRS. D. LAUER.
      The following from the Berlin Daily Telegraph - refers to the mother of Mrs. Wm. Kelterborn
      The death of Mrs. Daniel Lauer, a highly respected resident of this town took place at 8 o'clock on Sunday morning at her home, 23 Foundry street. Death was due to bronchitis from which she suffered for about two weeks.
      The deceased, whose maiden name was Catharine Bucher, was born in Hillsbach, Baden, Germany in 1841, and was therefore in her 67th year. When 13 years of age she came to Canada with her parents and directly to Berlin where she has lived ever since. She was married in 1871 to Mr. Daniel Lauer, who predeceased her three years. Two daughters and three sisters survive a kind mother and faithful sister. The daughters are, Miss Mary Lauer, at home, and Mrs. William Kelterborn at Wellesley, and the sisters are Mrs. G. Schamlach [?] , Mrs. J. Oberholtzer, and Mrs. Chris Krueger [?].
      The late Mrs. Lauer was a consistent member of St. Peter's Lutheran church and for twenty-two years held the post of secretary of the Ladies Aid of that church.
      The funeral will be held Wednesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the residence to St. Peter's church and from thence to Mount Hope cemetery, Rev. F. E. Oberlander officiating.
