"MRS. J. KURNIKER DEAD: This Sad Event Occurred at Her Home on Second Avenue Yesterday Morning. // The death of Mrs. J. KURNKIER occurred at her home on Second avenue at 8 o'clock yesterday morning, after a protracted illness of pneumonia. The deceased was a native of Hammelburg, Bavaria, and was 58 years of age at the time of her death. She was formerly Miss Babbett HIRSCH. In 1873 she was married to J[acob] KURNIKER, who, with eight children, survives her. Mr. KURNIKER is in business in Hurtsboro. Her children are Henry, Rosa and Annie KURNIKER, of this city, Mrs. J. ZACHARIAS, and Mrs. H. L. GANS, of Bainbridge, Lee J. KURNIKER, of Montgomery. The deceased also leaves two stepsons, Mr. Ike SCORSCH, of New York, and Dave SCORSCH, of Seale [Lee County, AL]. Mrs. KURNIKER was a member of the congregation B'Nai Isreal, and of the Hebrew Ladies' Aid Society. She has a great many warm friends in the city and was loved and esteemed wherever she was known. // Mrs. KERNIKER was a sister of the late Mr. Herman HIRSCH, of this city, and Mr. Abe HIRSCH, of Seale. Mrs. KURNIKER was conscious to the last and fully resigned and prepared to meet death, which to such pure and lovable soul must surely mean heaven. The funeral took place from the family residence yesterday afternoon at 4 o'clock, and was followed to Linwood cemetery by a large number of sorrowing relations and friends. // The following gentlemen acted as pall bearers: M. JULIUS, L. LOWENTHAL, L. BUHLER, Jos. HECHT, D. ROTHSCHIL and L. MEYER.
