      Third Sister Dead

      Their deaths followed that of a third sister, Mrs. Cleason Musselman of Kitchener, by only two weeks. They were the daughters of the late Conrad Gremm and the former Helena Hoelscher. Mrs. Emelie Helena Ludolph died after a lengthy illness. She was born May 28, 1884, in Breslau, and married the late Herman Ludolph in Kitchener, June 3, 1914. Mr. Ludolph predeceased his wife in 1940. She was a member of St. Peter's Lutheran Church. Surviving, in addition to her two brothers and sister, are two sons, Paul and Arnold, both of Kitchener; two daughters, Meta and Dorothy, both at home. Funeral will be conducted Friday at 2: 30 p.m. at St. Peters' Lutheran Church, Kitchener, with Rev. A. W. Lotz officiating. Burial will be in Mannheim, where Mrs. Ludolph lived before moving to Kitchener in 1945. The body is at the Gruhn Funeral Home until Friday at 1 p.m. when removal will be made to the church.
