South Bend Tribune, SOuth Bend, Ind., Sat., Nov. 4, 1944, p. 2, col. 4:
"Charles Witwer
Funeral services for Charles Witwer, aged 78, of 929 South 28th street, who died suddenly at 2:40 p.m. Friday of a heart attack suffered apparently from over exertion while carrying wood cabinets into an apartment at 513 East Broadway, will be held in the River Park Church of Christ at 2:30 p.m. Monday. Rev. O. T. Sparrow, pastor of the church, will officiate with burial in Fairview Cemetery, Mishawaka.

Mr. Witwer was a member of the pioneer Witwer family in St. Joseph County, and was of the early settlers in the River Park area. He had taken an active part in the civic affairs and was one of the church founders in the community. He was retired from active work at the Mishawaka Rubber & Woolen Manufacturing company where he had been employed for 33 years prior to 1933, and deacon and trustee of the Church of Christ at the time of his death.

Born in Harris township, St. Joseph county, June 2, 1866, he had spent his entire life in the community. He was married Jan. 1, 1895, to Miss Clara V. McDaniel, of Walkerton, this county, who survives. They had planned for their 50th wedding anniversary to take place New Year's day. Other survivors include a daughter, Mrs. Herbert Hill, of Mishawaka, two sons, Arthur and Robert, two sisters, Mrs. Margaret Kegerreis and Mrs. James Forsythe, and two brothers, John B. Witwer, all of South Bend, and Simon Witwer of Niles, Mich. Friends may call in the Hollis chapel until 1 p.m. on Monday when the body will be taken to the church to lie until the service."
