    • DEATH OF MR. DIETRICH.

      A correspondent adds the following particulars of the death of Mr. Peter Dietrich, at St. Clements on April 14th, a brief account of which appeared in the supplement of last week's Maple Leaf: Deceased had on the night previous to his death complained of feeling unwell, but this slight complaint was not thought to be anything serious. He performed his usual morning duties took breakfast and was getting ready to attend services in the local church when heart failure suddenly overtook him and he expired immediately in the presence of his wife and daughter, Mrs. Alex. Meyer. Medical aid was summoned but life was extinct. The news came as a great shock as he had been around the village all the previous day. Deceased was born a mile east of St. Agatha in 1845, his parents moving to Bamberg 10 years later. When 22 years old he was married to Miss Mary Moser, who survives him. Their only son died in early life but their four daughters, Mrs. W. O. Herzogg, Mrs. Frank Busch, Mrs.Alex Meyer and Mrs. Chas. Busch are all living in this vicinity. Last May he moved to St. Clements to live a retired life. The funeral took place here on Monday, from his late residence to the local R. C. Church for service and thence to Mount Hope cemetery for interment. He was a member of the local branch C. M. B. A., and many brothers paid their last tribute of respect to their departed brother. Deceased was a loving father and was liked and respected by everyone. Much sympathy is felt for the family in their sudden bereavement.
