     She also went by the name of Minnie in various census enumerations.14 She was a survivor of her husband Frederick who died in 1913.15
     In the obituary of Frederick Charles Runtz who died 6 July 1934, his daughter, Mrs August Kuehl was listed as a survivor.16
     The following obituary appeared in the newspaper the Ottawa Journal published in Ottawa, Ontario 25 January 1961 :
Kuehl, Whilemina
On Tuesday, January 24, 1961, at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Walter Wilkie, Killaloe, Ont., Whilemina Runtz, widow by first marriage of Frederick Zummach and by second marriage by (sic) August Kuehl, in her 87th year. Resting at Zummach Funeral Home, Killaloe, Ont. until Friday, 11.30 a.m. when the remains will be taken to Calvary Baptist Church to await funeral service at 2 o'clock p.m. Interment Emanuel cemetery.
Do not publish this since it is probably covered by copyright.12
     Research notes:
Issues to be researched:
Based upon August Kuehl having a step son Henry in the 1921 census, and a wife Minnie, I assume he married Whilhelmina Runtz after her first husband Frederick died in 1913. That would make Augusts daughter Violet also a step daughter, although the census shows her as a daughter.

Is the following tombstone for this August and Minnie. If so, the dates are off so other facts need to be reviewed.

The marriage took place at 3 o'clock p. m.. and the afternoon was passed very pleasantly by singing, recitations, extemporaneous addresses, music on stringed instruments, mouth organ, etc. After some two or three hours had passed away pleasantly in this manner, the next thing on the programme was the rattling of china, the lengthening of extension tables, the tender footsteps of the fair domestic's as they hastened to load the tables with the luscious viands, and the next event, second in importance to anything that had transpired as yet, was the participating in the sumptuous repast which had been carefully and artistically provided by the ladies.

After dinner had been served, and while the guests still remained seated around the table, J. W. Ridd made a few congratulatory remarks respecting the bride, and proposed that the guests present convey their congratulations and also their best mattes to the bride and bridegroom by drinking a cup of tea to their honour. This was done, after which Mr. Colton heartily resounded. Mr. Isaac Sutton then proposed that the congratulations of the guests present be conveyed to the ladies, and that their health be drunk in tho same manner. This was done, and Mr. A. Daykin was asked to respond in behalf of the ladies, which he did in a very gentlemanly manner. After , dinner was all over, the party again engaged in music, singing, recitations &c., until an unknown hour, after winch all returned to their homes, feeling, that they had enjoyed themselves to their utmost capacity, but none more desirous that another wedding should occur the next day, as rest was the most desirable. The bride was the recipient of some very handsome presents.
