      Sudden Death of Aged St. Jacobs Woman - The many friends and relatives of the late Susannah Gingrich, wife of Mr. David Ernst, of St. Jacobs were shocked to hear of her sudden death on Monday evening. On Monday morning the deceased accompanied by her husband, left on the 10 o'clock train to visit friends in Elmira and vicinity. Spending the day with her stepsons in Elmira, they drove out in the evening to the home of Mr. Jonas Martin, above Elmira. Soon after their arrival, Mrs. Ernst was taken suddenly ill and passed peacefully away about nine o'clock. Having suffered a few years ago from a stroke, the deceased had never been very strong since. Previous to their coming to St. Jacobs, they resided for a number of years in Glenallan and neighborhood. About two years ago, when their son-in-law, Mr. Eli Brubacher, purchased the Brubacher home on King St., the aged couple came to live with their daughter. The deceased was a very intelligent person, who with her kind and pleasing disposition won many friends throughout this county, where she was born and brought up, and was blessed by five children - Noah Martin, near St. Jacobs, Rev. Jesse Martin, near Breslau (children with the first husband, Peter Martin), David Ernst, Glenallan, Lovina (Mrs. Eli Brubacher), and Barbara in Michigan. There were also 8 brothers and sisters, Bishop Gingrich, Upper Woolwich; Rev. Jacob Gingrich, near Preston; John, Grand Rapids; Israel, St. Jacobs; Menno, near St. Jacobs, Isaac, near Floradale; Lydia (Mrs. Mose Weber) and Miss Nancy Gingrich, near Conestogo. Mr. N.W. Gingrich of this place is a first cousin. The aged husband and children who are left to mourn the loss of a kind helpmate and living mother, have the heartfelt sympathy of their friends in their sad and sudden bereavement. The funeral will take place today, from the residence of Mr. Eli Brubacher to the Conestogo Riker Road Mennonite Church for service and burial.
