In Memoriam, WATERLOO REGION RECORD, Kitchener, Ontario - Oct. 30, 2008
KROPF (Schlegel), Ruth - The pearly gates were opened, a gentle voice said "Come"; and with farewells left unspoken, she gently entered home. One year ago, October 30, Mom/ Grandma died as she lived, surrounded by her family. We miss her physical presence but deeply value the many life lessons she taught us. Her helping hand was always first to render any aid she could. Her voice was always raised in praise, her words were wise and good. We mourn for her in silence; no eyes can see us weep, but many a silent tear is shed while others are asleep. Deep in our hearts you'll always stay, loved and remembered every day, Lorne, Dale and Grace, Gloria and Liw, Bruce and Cindy, Kevin and Carolyn, Larry and Tracey and families

According to a file of death information in the Hastings Public Library, Claude died as a result of a motor vehicle accident. He is buried next to Cora in the Freeport Cemetery.
The January 23, 1924 edition of "The Hastings Banner" reported: What might have been a serious accident turned out very fortunately Sunday afternoon. It seems the gas tank on the Hastings-Grand Rapids bus had sprung a leak and Claude Walton was endeavoring to repair it. They had carefully washed the tank out with water and thoroughly dried it and Claude was soldering it when it suddenly exploded, tearing the tank into pieces, flying by him, and demolishing several windows. The explosion was loud and was heard for quite a distance. Had the bulk of the explosion gone Mr. Walton's way, he would have suffered very severe injury, if not killed. Fortunately, no one was injured."
