  • Notes 
    • Mrs. Oscar Huehn a Victim

      General and deep regret is felt over the untimely death of Mrs. Oscar A. Huehn (Alma Louisa) of Heidelburg [sic], who died at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Dreisinger, on Thursday, January 29, 1920. Mrs. Huehn had come to Elmira on a visit about two weeks ago, and contracted a cold which developed rapidly into pneumonia. She was only ill a week. Her indisposition was at first not considered serious. On Wednesday, January 21, Dr. Weidenhammer, of Waterloo was called in for consultation and after an examination was unable to hold out any hope for her recovery. At 11 o'clock Thursday morning last she passed away. The deceased was a native of Elmira and generally loved for her many excellent qualities. Before her marriage and removal to Heidelburg, she had for a number of years been organist at St. James Lutheran church and active in its social work. She was still a young woman having been at death only 25 years, 2 months and 11 days of age. In addition to her grief stricken husband, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. W Dreisinger, her sister, Mrs. Frank Rudow Jr and her brother Harold of Elmira, survive her and mourn her sudden taking off. Her funeral was held on Sunday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the Dreisinger residence on Park street to St. James Church for services and from thence to the Elmira Union Cemetery for burial. Rev. John Strempher officiated. The [?] were attended by a large number of sorrowing friends. The heartfelt sympathy of the community will go out to the bereaved husband, parents, and family in their great loss. A kind, loving wife, has been cut down in the flower of womanhood.
