retirement in the centre of a happy family.

Fred of Hagersville, Mrs. E. McCombs (Edith) of Hamilton and Mrs.
Leslie Hoover (Nettie) of Chatham. Two children died in infancy. One

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.
