Obituary: 25 November 1944, Kitchener, Ontario, Canada; Kitchener Waterloo Record 7

From Kitchener Waterloo Record, Saturday, Nov. 25, 1944:

Tony Voisin, Centenarian, Taken by Death. Kitchener's oldest citizen, Anthony "Tony" Voisin, died last night at the age of 101. [Not possible, his sister Christina was born in 1843.] He had been well until the past week when he appeared to be failing. A stroke yesterday morning terminated his long life at 1:30 AM today.

Mr. Voisin, who made his home with his son, Louis Voisin, 61 Irvin St. Kitchener, celebrated his 100th birthday on Sept. 17, last year. Until a week ago, he was able to shave himself with a straight razor, listen to the radio, and read without the aid of glasses. Fond of reading, he spent much time with his Bible.

REGULAR HABITS With the spryness of a man many decades hIs junior, he believed in an early bedtime, an early rising hour, and a occasional nap in an easy chair. He enjoyed a good smoke, and sometimes a glass of wine.

Born near St. Clements, Mr. Voisin and his father used to shop in Galt (Cambridge), because as they passed through Kitchener in the ox drawn cart, it consisted of only a few houses surrounded by bush. His mother and father walked to Buffalo, N.Y. once a year, in order to visit relatives. His father, the late Joseph Voisin, was born in France. His mother, the former Kathryn Meyer, came from Germany.

Mr. Vosin moved to Formosa at the age of 23, and a year later married. The couple took over a 200 acre farm. Mr. Voisin clearing 100 acres himself. They remained on the farm until 31 years ago, (1913) when Mr. Voisin retired. On Mrs. Voisin's death in 1927, Mr. Voisin came to Kitchener. He suffered two slight strokes a number of years ago, but readily recovered. He suffered two slight strokes a number of years ago, but readily recovered.

FAMILY SURVIVES Two sons, Anthony, on the old homestead at Formosa, and Louis of Kitchener, survive Mr. Voisin, as well as four daughters. They are Mrs. Mary Rettinger of Teeswater; Mrs. Peter (Lena) Strauss, St. Clements; Mrs. Joseph (Abbie) Synk, Freeman, Ohio; and Mrs. John (Katie) Koehmstedt of Langdon, N.D. There are 49 grandchildren, 98 great grandchildren and six great-great-grandchildren. John, age 81, of Durham also survives. Two sons and two daughters died at an early age, and two adult daughters, Mrs. Joseph (Agnes) Messner of Stoney Creek and Mrs. Gregor (Annie) Strauss, predeceased him.

The body was taken to Formosa today, where the funeral service will be held Monday morning at ten o'clock.
