Although born as Ada Kuntze, her death certificate identifies her as Edith.
I have no idea why her mother's name is Bertha Roberts. Ada/Edith's father, Albert Kuntze, died in 1897.
Bertha may have remarried someone named Roberts. By the time Bertha dies in 1923, her last name is Wilson.
Erysipelas Fasclitis is a flesh-eating skin infection. To go directly to Ada's "Cause of Death" page,
