  • Notes 
    • Henry W. Schierholtz

      The death occurred on Wednesday, June 12th, of Mr. Henry W. Schierholtz, of 145 Wellington St., Kitchener.

      The deceased had resided in the city for the past 4-½ years and was highly respected by all who knew him. News of his death, although not unexpected, came as a shock to a wide circle of friends and acquaintances. He suffered a nervous breakdown 1-½ years ago, from which, despite the best of care and attention, he never recovered. He was removed to the Hospital for Insane at Hamilton for treatment only a short time ago, and while progressing favorably, suddenly took a change for the worse on Monday last and died on Wednesday.

      Mr. Schierholtz was born in New Hamburg, Ont., on Oct. 16th, 1849. Soon after his birth his parents came to Elmira. On March 26th, 1878, he married Miss Mary Weidenhammer, who survives him. He lived for a time on a farm in Normanby Township, and later at Lamlash, Ont., after which he moved to Kitchener.

      He is survived by the sorrowing widow, five sons and three daughters, namely: Charles, of Elmwood, Ont.; Edward, Clymont, Alta.; Wm. of Young, Sask.; Harman, Louisa and Lavina at home, and Clara, Mrs. F. Daber, 25 Tuerk St., Kitchener. One son, Walter, was killed in action in France, Nov. 6, 1917. He leaves also two brothers, five sisters and one grandchild.

      The funeral was held from the family residence, 145 Wellington St., Kitchener, on Sunday, June 16th, at 2 p.m., to St. Matthews Lutheran Church and to Mount Hope Cemetery. Rev. J. Schmieder conducted the services.
