from The Stamford Recorder, Stamford, N.Y., Aug. 18 1894
On Monday, Mrs. Heimer, who had been ill for some time, breathed her last, at her home in the village of Andes. She was born in the town of Andes, Sept. 21, 1833, consequently her age was nearly 62 years. Her father was Peter Penet, who held the office of town clerk of the town for a quarter of a century. The funeral services were held on Wednesday at 1 p.m., Rev. Robert Knapp, her pastor, officating, assisted by Rev. James Bruce. Mr. Heimer united with the M. E. Church in 1850, and was married in the same year to Francis Heimer. It is not too much to say that the church had no more earnest or efficient member, and the village in which she resided no woman more helpful or better beloved. It was the univeral feeling that a friend, a true christan and one of nature's noble women has been removed. Hearty sympathy goes out to the bereaved husband who very keely feels her loss.
