Theodore Calvin House

The death occurred in Hamilton, 1 Jul 1930 of Theodore Calvin House who was born in Beamsville, 1 Sep 1853. At an early age he removed to the vicinity of Vanessa, and since that time has spent the major part of his life in Windham Centre and Teeterville where he conducted a very successful general store. The last few years have been spent in quiet retirement in the centre of a happy family.

He was married by the late Elder Haviland on 18 Oct 1882 to Alfreda Chapin who survives together with four children: Mrs. Lloyd Cassell (Flossie) of Hamilton, Fred of Hagersville, Mrs. E. McCombs (Edith) of Hamilton and Mrs. Leslie Hoover (Nettie) of Chatham. Two children died in infancy. One sister, Mrs. Webster Smith of Port Dover, and eight grandchildren also survive.

Mr. House was a man of very quiet, industrious disposition, always kind, and interested in religious things. He was a member of the Teeterville United Church but owing to the absence of the pastor, Rev. J. B. Moore of Waterford, a life long friend, conducted the funeral services at the home on Friday afternoon, bringing a message of comfort. The choir of the United Church brought a message of song and the many flowers expressed the sympathy of a host of friends.
