  • Notes 
    • It is our painful duty to record the death of Mrs. (widow) Heipel, which occurred [sic] on Friday evening last, shortly after six o'clock. She had been in her usual good health until the preceding evening while visiting her daughter, Mrs. Ottmann, when she was suddenly stricken with paralysis of a fatal type and from which she never rallied. Her only absent child, Prof. Chas Heipel , of the Nashua (New Hampshire) business college, was at once telegraphed for, but she had passed away before his arrival. The funeral occured on Monday afternoon, the remains being laid away to rest in the Lutheran cemetery north of the village, in the presence of an immense concourse of friends, after which services were held in the church by the pastor, Rev. Mr. Holm. Deceased was born in Germany on Feb. [?]th, 1835, and, three months later in that year her parents, the late Mr. and Mrs. Andrew Doering, immigrated [sic] to Canada and settled at Philipsburg. Here the deceased lived with her parents until 185[4?] when she was married to the late John Heipel, the young couple taking up the bush lot, now on fine farm of their eldest son William at Doering's corners. Many years later they removed to the farm at New Pussia [sic], now owned by a younger son, Mr. Geo. Heipel, remaining on this farm until 1893, when they retired from farming moving to this village, where Mr. Heipel died about five years ago. Their family consisted of William at Doering's Corners; Adam (Councillor) ; Elizabeth, who died when three, years old; Andrew; Christina (Mrs. Peter Ottmann); John George, and Charles. She was of a kind, loveable disposition, and had a wide circle of warm friends, especially among the elder people of this section. The bereaved family have the heartfelt sympathy of the entire community in their loss.
