    • DEATH OF MRS. SIMON SCHEDEWITZ SUDDEN-DUE TO HEART FAILURE

      Extremely sudden was the death of Mrs. Simon Schedewitz, of Floradale, who was found dead in her bed yesterday morning by members of her family. When she retired for the night Tuesday evening she seemed to be enjoying her usual health, but it is thought that heart failure set in during the night and caused her death without even awakening her. Though she had never been ill, she had been troubled with her heart for some time. Her death has come as a great shock to the community.

      Born in 1854 in Germany, the late Mrs. Schedewitz came to this country when three years of age, accompanying her parents Mr. and Mrs. Conrad Zinkann, who settled in Wellesley township. She continued to live there until her marriage to Mr. Schedewitz, when they settled in Woolwich township. Two years ago, Mr. and Mrs. Schedewitz moved to Floradale, selling their farm about five miles north east of Elmira.

      Besides her husband, the late Mrs. Schedewitz leaves eight children as follows: John, of Bridgeport; Mrs. Cole, of Kitchener; Mrs. Hewson, of Woolwich; George, of Bridgeport; Mrs. Winfield, of Kitchener; Charles of Pilkington; and Henry of Floradale.

      The funeral takes place on Saturday afternoon from the residence at Floradale. Services will also be held at St. Paul's Church, Elmira, and thence to the Elmira Union Cemetery.
