Many friends in Grimsby, where she was a former resident, were shocked to learn of the sudden passing of Miss Frieda Irene Reinke, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B.F. Reinke, on Saturday last at her late residence, 27 Rosslyn Avenue north, Hamilton. Miss Reinke, who contracted lobar pneumonia only a few days before her death, was born in Beverly township 30 years ago and when a girl moved with her parents to Ancaster where she lived for 14 years. Subsequently the family moved to Grimsby, and Stoney Creek before moving to Hamilton two years ago. She was a member of Delta Tabernacle, and was a popular member of the younger social set of Hamilton, having been well known in musical circles. She leaves to mourn her passing, besides her parents, Mr. and Mrs. B.F. Reinke, two sisters, Mrs. Clifford Oder of Galt and Mrs. Lyle Beckett in Tillsonburg; four brothers, Harold of Toronto and Albert, Howard and Russell of Hamilton.
An unusually large number of sorrowing relatives and friends attended the service, which was held at the residence on Tuesday afternoon and accompanied the funeral cortege to Stoney Creek cemetery where interment was made. Rev. H.L. Turner of Delta Tabernacle, assisted by Rev. J.W. Hunt of the United Church at Hespeler, officiated at the home and graveside. Numerous beautiful floral tributes attested to the high esteem in which the deceased young lady was held.
Acting as pallbearers were: Harry F. Hazell, Joseph e. Piott, Dr. Harry Granger, John E. Milne, Ellis H. Corman and John Wylie.
