    • Mrs. Elizabeth Fries

      This afternoon the remains of the late Elizabeth Frey, beloved wife of Michael Fries, were laid in their final resting place in St. James' Lutheran Cemetery. The late Mrs. Fries was born in Baden, Germany, September 10, 1842. On August 10, 1861, she was united in marriage to Michael Fries. Mr. and Mrs. Fries lived for many years on a farm on the road between West Montrose and Elora. They moved to Elmira about 24 years ago where they have resided since.

      Mrs. Fries began to fail in health about a year ago and a fall down the cellar steps about eight days ago helped to hasten her death.

      She leaves to mourn her loss her beloved husband and eleven children: Solomon, Manor, Sask.; Franey (Mrs. Henry Dobberthein), Clive, Iowa; Michael, Elmira; Margaret (Mrs. William Dobberthein), Elora; Daniel, Kitchener; Jacob, Elmira; John, Packenham; Catherine (Mrs. Henry Plate), Kitchener, Lydia (Mrs. Levi Snider), Elmira; Christina (Mrs. Arthur Rhodes), Kitchener; and Magdalena (Mrs. Armond Fulcher), Elmira. There is also one brother, Christian Frey of Heidelberg. There are 54 grandchildren and 36 great-grandchildren.

      The funeral was held at two o'clock from the home on King Street to St. James' Lutheran Church for service, thence to St. James' Cemetery for burial. Rev. Mr. Kalbfleisch officiated. The Pall-bearers were the six grandsons of the deceased; Clayton Fries, Fred Fries, Gordon Fries, Edger Plate, Clarence Fires, and Herbert Dobberthein.
