Thomas J. and Bertha Stottlemyer obituary, Anderson Daily Bulletin, Anderson,
Indiana, Wednesday, October 4, 1944, p. 1.

Former Local Couple Killed in Home Fire
Thomas J. Stottlemyer, age 59, and his wife, Mrs. Bertha Stottlemyer, age sixty,
of Vienna, Va., formerly teachers in the Seventh Day Adventist School, corner of
Nelle and Twenty-second streets this city, were fatally burned in a blaze in
their apartment Saturday night. Charred bodies of Mr. and Mrs. Stottlemyer were
found in the stairway of the apartment, with evidence indicating that they were
trying to make their escape when they were caught by flames and smoke.

Mr. and Mrs. Stottlemyer taught at the Seventh Day Adventist school here for
three years and resided at 1615 Nellie street. Dr. G.A. Hoppes and other
leaders in the church state that the couple was well known among members of the
local congregation.

After cremation ashes of the fire victims will be sent to the home of a brother,
Frank Stottlemyer, Greenfield. Mr. and Mrs. Stottlemyer were preaching and
teaching in the Virginia city. They formerly preached and taught in Anderson,
Harford City and Richmond, Ind. and Dayton, Cleveland and Cincinati, Ohio.
Surviving are a son Hiram, of Toledo, O., and a grandson, Robert who is now
serving with the armed forces. Also a brother, Frank Stottlemyer, of near
Greenfield, and a sister Clara Shull, of near Pendleton. Funeral arrangements
are held up pending arrival of the son.
