(Kitchener Record) Preston, April 19 - The bell in Preston's oldest church steeple tolled 100 times this morning. Its tolling marked the passing of Preston's living link with its pioneer forbears, and the town's most distinguished resident, Mrs. Dorothea Heise. Mrs. Heise died last Wednesday night. She had been ill for two weeks.

Less than one month ago, on March 27th, all Preston celebrated the 100th birthday of the pioneer resident.

Mrs. Heise received the congratulations of the prime minister and the best wishes of the King and Queen on her birthday.

Born 100 years ago on the home which stood where the Little Block now stands, Mrs. Heise was one of 11 children of Mr. and Mrs. Michael Stuempfle.

She is survived by 7 daughters and two sons: Mrs. George (Mary) Kanmacher, of Grimsby; Miss Elizabeth Heise, of Preston; Mrs. John (Emma) Mumford, Freeport; Miss Dorothea Heise, Toronto; Mrs. C.C. (Louise) Hahn, Kitchener; Mrs. W. (Lottie) Stohrer, Lansing, Mich.; Mrs. E.R. (Clara) Riley, Peterborough; and sons, Edward G. Heise and William H. Heise, both of Preston. Thirteen grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren also survive.
