    • SOEHNER, Emanuel

      On Wednesday, March 18, 1987, at his residence, Elmira Nursing Home, in his 91st year.

      Emanuel was born in Floradale and resided there and in Elmira all his life. He was a veteran of the First World War and served overseas with the Canadian Army. While in Floradale, he owned and operated the Floradale Garage and in later years he was employed by Silverwoods Dairies in Elmira. He was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church.

      Son of the late Philip Soehner and Barbara Weismueller. He was predeceased by his wife, the former Bessie Groh (1978). He was the last surviving member of his family, having been predeceased by five sisters and two brothers. He will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by nieces and nephews and their families.

      Friends may call at the Dreisinger Funeral Home, Elmira, after 2 p.m. today (Thursday), until Friday at noon, when removal will be made to St. Paul's Lutheran church for funeral service at 2 p.m., with Rev. Mervin Huras officiating. Interment Elmira Union cemetery.

      For those who desire, donations to the Lutheran Hour, as expressions of sympathy, would be appreciated.
