The staff of the county building and the village of Jordan Station has been cast into deep sorrow in the sudden death of Ethel Louise Rittenhouse, who passed away at the Toronto General Hospital on Wednesday last following an operation to remove a brain tumour. The late Miss Rittenhouse, who was in her 32nd year, was stenographer to County Clerk and Treasurer Camby Wismer for the past 10 years. Of a cheerful disposition and an efficient worker, she was highly esteemed and her sudden death comes as a severe shock to her many friends. A lifelong resident of Jordan Station...The eldest daughter of Anna L. and the late Jacob K. Rittenhouse, she is survived by her mother, two sisters and two brothers, Mrs. Henry Cole, Brockville, Mrs. Gordon Honsberger, Jordan Station, Ernest and Harry at home. The funeral, one of the largest ever seen in the district, took place on Saturday afternoon, when deceased was laid to rest amid a profusion of beautiful flowers. Service was held at her late home by Rev. C.R. Albright and Rev. George Cropp, of Fenwick. The members of the Lincoln county council for whom she had been stenographer for the last 10 years, formed a guard of honour at the grave. Six cousins of the deceased acted as pallbearers.
