Mrs. Judge Stitzel Dies After a Lingering Illness
Mrs. Amanda Stitzel, wife of the Hon. George D. Stitzel, president of the Citizens, bank, died at her husbands residence, corner of Sixth and Walnut streets, shortly after four o'clock yesterday afternoon, after a lingering
illness. Her health had been delicate for some years, and since early last fall she was confined to the house. Her sufferings in the last months were severe. Mrs. Stitzel was born near the Half-Way house, in Maidencreek Township, and was the oldest of the two daughters of George Weidenhammer, a well-known and prosperous farmer, who died some years ago at a very advanced age. The other daughter is Mrs. Franklin Seidel, of Maidencreek. Deceased was married to George
Stitzel, then a young farmer and justice of the peace of Richmond Township, on the 21st of May, 1846. Two children both daughters, blessed this union. Elmira, the oldest daughter, died in early womanhood in her 18th year. The youngest daughter, Kate, became the wife of William S, Mohr, the present cashier of the Citizens' bank. Her death occurred on the 24th of December, 1877. Mr. and Mrs. Stitzel took up their residence in Reading in 1858, after his election as an associate judge of the courts of Berks County, which he held two terms of five years each. Judge Stitzel followed farming in Richmond Township for some years after his marriage, and was also a justice of the peace. He removed to Maidencreek to engage in the business of conducting a general store, where he was also elected a justice. Mrs. Stitzel was a member the Second Reformed congregation, and, as long as her health permitted, was a regular attendant at church. She was a lady of fine traits of character, and proved a valuable helpmate to her husband. Of an amiable and cheerful disposition she had a kind look and word for everybody. During the severe suffering which she was compelled
to endure during her late illness she bore up with true Christian courage. Her death will be sincerely mourned by a large circle of friends and acquaintances.
Due announcement of the funeral will be given.
