    • FORMER ELMIRA WOMAN PASSED

      REMAINS BROUGHT TO ELMIRA FOR BURIAL

      Word was received here on Tuesday by friends of the family that Mrs. Gertrude Steurnagel, widow of the late Henry Steurnagel, had died at the home of her daughter, Mrs. William Macdonald, 44 New Street, Hamilton, Ont. The remains were brought to Elmira 1.30 p.m. to-day and taken to St. Paul's Lutheran church for the funeral service at 2 o'clock. Rev. A. Orsen of Kitchener will conduct the service, and officiate at the grave in the Union Cemetery, where burial will take place.

      The deceased whose maiden name was Gertrude Maurer, was born in Germany eighty years ago. After coming to his country she was married to the late Henry Steurnagel and they lived in Elmira for many years. About fifteen years ago, sometime after the death of her husband, she went to Hamilton to live with her daughter Mary (Mrs. Wm Macdonald). Besides this daughter, a son, George, residing in Michigan and the oldest of the children, Lydia (Mrs. Connor) of Hamilton survive to mourn the loss of a kind mother. Three sons, William, James and Harry predeceased her. While she lived here, Mrs. Steurnagel was a devoted member of St. Paul's church and she remained true to the end to the faith here confessed.
