Full Text

The Zumstein family of South Grimsby is a sad family this week, two members dying within a few hours of each other. Miss Phoebe Zumstein, on her way to Hamilton stepped from a moving train in the city and was instantly killed on Friday evening, December 20th. At the time, her sister, Mrs. Robert Ford, formerly Miss Maud Zumstein, was lying ill with influenza at the home of L.M. Nelles, Grimsby, where she had been employed for some time. Early Sunday morning she passed away from heart failure. Both ladies were former residents of Grimsby and were well-known here. The double funeral took place in Hamilton.
