  • Notes 
    • Mr. Christian Duench passed away last night about 11 o'clock at his home, 71 Water Street following an illness of one week's duration. Last Wednesday he suffered a stroke from which he never rallied. The deceased who was in his 75th year was born in Wellesley township, March 4, 1848. For a number of years he has resided in town and was well and favorably known and his death will be learned with regret by a large circle of friends. To mourn his death there are left the sorrowing widow, and two sons, William H. of Kitchener and Edward of Waterloo. Four brothers, Henry, Kitchener; George, Linwood; Louis, Bamberg, and Stephen of Wallenstein also survive. The funeral will take place Saturday afternoon at 2: 30 o'clock from his late residence 71 Water Street to Mt. Hope cemetery, Kitchener, for interment.
