    • Obituary - New Hamburg Independent, January 21, 1916
      Death of Mrs. Sophia Ernst on Wednesday evening shortly after six o'clock, Mrs. Sophia Ernst passed peacefully away at her home here. She was about the house on Sunday, but on Monday evening she fell into an unconscious sleep from which she never awoke, death claiming her on Wednesday. She had enjoyed many years of perfect health until the past year, when she suffered several paralytic attacks. The late Mrs. Ernst was a mostly highly respected and one of the oldest residents of New Hamburg, having reached the advanced age of 87 years, 4 months and 6 days. During her long residence here she endeared herself to a large circle of friends. She was a devoted adherent of the Lutheran faith. The late Mrs. Ernst's maiden name was Sophia Reichert, and she was born in Eschelbrunn, Baden, Germany, on Sept. 13th, 1828. At the age of 18 years she came with her father, brothers and sisters to Wilmot. In 1851 she was married to the late John Ernst, who predeceased her 39 years ago, while he was conducting the Queen's Hotel here, which business she carried on with her sons for many years after, until about twenty years ago. She is survived by two sons and seven daughters to mourn the loss of a loving mother. One son, Fred, died about 25 years ago. The surviving family are, Mrs. A. Fraser, Mrs. Isaac Betzner, Mrs. G. Rebelski and Mr. John Ernst, of New Hamburg, Mrs. Amon Merner, of Waterloo, Mrs. A. Urquhart and Mr. Wm. Ernst, of Toronto, and Misses Minnie and Marion Ernst, of Guelph. The funeral will be held to-morrow afternoon at 2 o'clock from her late residence to Riverside Cemetery. Rev. Mr. Schewe, of St. Peter's Lutheran Church, will conduct the obsequies.
