Samuel Shuler's Sudden Death
Samule Shuler, an aged resident if this borough died very suddently on the Saturday night at the home of Reuban Smith on West Fulton Street, in this borough, aged eighty-fours years, one month and one day. Organic heart disease was the cause of his death. The deceased was in attendance at the Ephrata market on Saturday afternoon last where he was chatting pleasantly with the number of his friends. These with other friends were greatly shocked when informed of his death on Sunday morning. The deceased was born and raised in Berks County. When he was a young man he located in the vicinity of Schoeneck where he learned the brick burning trade, at which she worked for a number of years. He resided principally at Schoeneck, Denver, Lincoln of this Borough having resided for a number of years in the recent past in one of the old buildings on the cloister premises, near this borough. For a time during the past two years, he was an inmate of the United Zion Brethren Home near Lititz, quite recently he boarded at the Washington house, Denver, during the early part of last week he came to the Borough and since then had his home with the Smith family where his death occurred. Mr. Shuler was a veteran of the Civil War and a member of the United Brethren Church having been a faithful and regular attendance at the services of the church; he always showed a deep interest in young people and his words of encouragement testimony and council frequently given at the midweek prayer meetings were appreciated by all especially by the young people of the congregation. He was very well preserved mentally and physically and no one who spoke with him on Saturday could have realized that before another day would dawn is our earthly life would have ceased. One son and two daughters survive the son being John L. Shuler, of Bordentown, NJ and the daughters, Susan, wife of Percival Kindt of Shamokin, and Mrs Mary Beckey, of Reading.
