Death of Mrs. Elizabeth Exler.

On Wednesday afternoon of last week Mrs. Louis Borns, of East End, received a telegram from Coalport bearing the news of the sad and unexpected death of her mother who died at 11 o’clock that morning of neuralgia of the heart, aged 69 years. Mr. and Mrs. Borns started immediately on their sad journey.

Mr. Exler leaves to mourn the loss of a good mother, ten children who are as follows: Catharine, wife of Nathan Berger, of Coalport; Mary, wife of Charles Cassidy, of Somerset Street, Johnstown; Maggie, wife of W. I. Milligan, proprietor of the Mansion House, Main Street, Johnstown; Abbie, wife of Louis Borns, Hastings; John, who resides in Patton; Joseph, who resides in Altoona; George, clerk at the Mansion House, Johnstown; Barbara, Anna and Alice at home.

Though her death was sudden and nxexpected [sic] they have consolation to know that she was well prepared, as she had lived a devout Catholic all her life. On Saturday morning a Requiem High Mass was offered for the repose of her soul. On Sunday afternoon after funeral services in St. Basil’s Church, Coalport, her remains were followed by a large concourse of sorrowing friends and relatives to the St. Lawrence Cemetery where her body was laid to rest beside her husband, Michael Exler, who preceeded her to the grave fourteen years ago. May her soul rest in peace.
