    • Death of Christian Litwiller

      Death came very suddenly to an esteemed resident of New Hamburg late on Monday evening, when Mr. Christian R. Litwiller passed away at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Milton Leis, near Mannheim. Mr. Litwiller had been working at Wellesley during the day and went to his daughter's home for the night. He had his supper and retired about 10 o'clock apparently in his usual robust health but shortly thereafter was seized with a heart attack and passed away before medical aid could be summoned. The deceased was born near St. Agatha and spent his whole life in this community. For the past twelve years he was a resident of this town. He was aged 56 years, 9 months and 13 days. He leaves his wife, who before her marriage was Katharine Kropf of St. Agatha, besides his daughter, Mrs. Leis and four sons, Edward of New Hamburg, Ivan of Hamilton, and Rudy and John of Lancaster, N.Y. He is also survived by one brother, John Litwiller of Wilmot, and two sisters, Mrs. Aaron Wagler, of Baden, and Miss Catharine Litwiller, of St. Agatha. The funeral was held from his late home here yesterday forenoon with service in the Amish-Mennonite Church, near Baden, followed by interment in the A.-M. Cemetery. The funeral service was conducted by Bishop Daniel Steinman and was attended by a large circle of relatives and friends.
