OBITUARY FOR LATE ELIZABETH WURM---90 YEARS OF AGE
It is our painful duty this week to chronicle the death of the wife of Mr. Henry Wurm Sr., one of the oldest inhabitants of this village. The deceased was one of the earliest settlers in this area having settled here about 35 years ago. Of late years she has been afflicted with a cancer which caused her death last Saturday at the ripe old age of ninety years. The funeral took place last Tuesday morning and proceeded to the Lutheran Cemetery where the body was interred.
Mr. Daniel Wurm and son of Matthias attended.
Daniel Wurm is thought to refer to Daniel Wurm of Bingham Township, Huron County, Michigan. Daniel was born in Germany on 03 Apr 1822 and died in Bingham Township, Huron County, Michigan on 10 Jun 1905.
Matthias Wurm is thought to refer to Mathias Wurm born in Germany in 1807 and died in Berlin, Ontario on 04 Sep 1896.
