      ______________________________


      CLEMMER - Susanna Clemmer, nee Gingrich, wife of John Clemmer, died Jan. 27, 1900, aged 74 years, 9 months and 24 days. She was born in Waterloo Co., Ont., April 5, 1825. Her death was caused from burns, her clothes catching fire while she was sitting by the stove. Nobody was present in the room but some little children, and when they saw their grandmother's clothes burning they screamed, and her daughter, who was in the kitchen getting dinner, ran in, but before she could get the fire quenched, her mother was so badly burned that she died on the following day about 6 o'clock p.m. She was buried on the 30th in the Martin cemetery, above Waterloo, Ont. Funeral services by Pre. Jacob Woolner, Sen., at the house. Text, Heb. 9: 27. She leaves a sorrowing husband and six children to mourn her departure. Two children preceded her to the spirit world. May God comfort the bereft ones, and give them grace to make their calling and election sure, so that death may not overtake them in an unprepared state. Jacob Woolner
