      Mrs. David Betzner


      Death came suddenly through heart failure Monday morning at 9 o'clock to one of Berlin's oldest residents in the person of Mrs. David Betzner, who resided with her son, Hy. B. Betzner on 62 Scott street.
      The deceased was in her 74th years and spent most of her time in the County of Waterloo. She was widely known in Berlin and throughout the County and many homes will be saddened by the news of her death. She had been ailing for some time but of late had improved considerably and was able to attend to her duties when death overtook her.
      The maiden name of the deceased was Catherine Brubacher. She is survived by her husband and five sons, John, Joseph, Henry and David in Berlin and Eliah of Ohio. Two sons predeceased her. She was a faithful member of the Mennonite church and a daughter of the late John Brubacher, being a family of 15 children of whom only two survive, namely Mrs. Moses Betzner, and Mrs. David Musselman, both of this town.
      The funeral will take place on Wednesday afternoon when services will be held at the residence of her son Mr. H. B. Betzner, 62 Scott street, at 2 o'clock and thence to the east end Mennonite Church. Internment will take place in the East End cemetery.
      Friends are requested to omit flowers.
